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.
