Dr. Bessey is by far one of the most wonderful doctors I have met, he listened to me, he understood my pain, and he wasted no time getting me on his schedule to operate and change my life. Day of surgery he came in and explained it all and made sure I didn’t have questions! I will forever be thankful and recommend him highly to anyone who needs his services! Thank you Dr. Bessey for being an incredible surgeon/human!

Great Dr
Dr Bessey is a fantastic Spine surgeon. He made me feel very comfortable. He took the time to point out on my mri the cyst I had and how it was effecting my sciatica (to the point I couldn't get out of bed in the morning - let alone walk) He made sure I understood what he would do, possible issues that may arise and how everything would be handled. I felt so comfortable and also trusting of him that I cancelled a 2nd opinion I had lined up. His office was very easy to work with. Everyone was very nice. At the hospital he saw me before the surgery and made sure I was comfortable. The hospital experience at Salem Hospital was great. Again everyone who was involved with me couldn't have been any nicer. Dr Bessey was incredible and I have recommended him to others. He again took time and made me comfortable on follow up visits. His PA's, nurses etc were all great to work with. I could easily email them and got replies right away. Do not hesitate to go to Dr Bessey. He is fantastic

Dr. Bessey assured me he would put in a referral for pain management with another clinic and that they would call me to schedule an appointment. Two months later and i’ve heard NOTHING, i call his office and the referral was never put in. Didn’t get an apology from anyone over the phone, they just said they would call me back. Absolutely horrendous patient care, shows he does not care at all.

My mother was sent to him to check out her spinal cysts and chronic back pain. He doesn't listen to your opinions on your own body, talks as if he knows everything because he's experienced "similar" pain before, and disregards your test results because he apparently knows better. Thinks so highly of his own opinion even though he clearly needs to go back to school to learn proper patient treatment.

Discectomy performed for central herniation. Bessey did an amazing job! Quick recovery, small scar, and zero residual side effects.

Calm cool confident had a great experience. I looked at the Baptist as a second opinion, but ultimately felt better coming to MGH for a microdisectomy, It turned out great.
