Safford, AZ |
Would recommend him to any of my friends and family! He's great!
in Tucson, AZ |
Torn my meniscus and was in lots of pain, Dr Hess and his team is top notch. He did a orthoscopy and fixed my tear. It was my first surgery of any kind and It was smooth procedure. Dr. Hess has a great bedside manner and calm professional I had been seeing another Orthopedic specialist for non work injury not I'm switching to Dr Hess for my other orthopedic treatment. Highly recommend Dr. Hess.
