Patient Comments (2)
New Hyde Park, NY |
James Hess is a horrible doctor. I was seeing him for about 3 years and he was wrongly medicating me, wouldn't take the time to listen to other medications/ treatments I had read about, and kept me at poor stagnant health for years. I went to a different doctor for another opinion who agreed that he was doing me a severe disservice. Ever since I went to her, she listens to me, changed up my medication, and I am back to low-normal levels, lost a lot of weight, and no longer pre diabetic.

Dr. Hess is supreme from every standpoint. His scientific insight is highly reliable and he is the most compassionate and humble doctor I have ever encountered over many decades.
