Asbury Park, NJ |
Dr. Pess was very friendly and kind. He took the time to listen to my problems and answered all my questions. He was able to figure out what was wrong with me even though my previous doctor missed the diagnosis. His surgical skill was exceptional and I recovered very quickly from my surgery with no problems. I recommend him.
