Dr. Hessan is my son's ENT and placed his ear tubes in 2017. He's so attentive, thorough, and communicates so well. When we go see him he acts like my son is his only patient. He even has a scribe to take notes for him so he can focus on the patient. He's intelligent and has amazing bedside manner!

After waiting an hour and a half for my appointment they made me reschedule when they didn't have appointments for another 3 weeks. I will never come back here.
