I went to Dr. Hessing for my shoulder because Hessing did my husband's shoulder surgery. My experience with Dr. Hessing and his staff was stellar. Professional, empathetic, kind, and thorough. They listened and didn't make me feel like I was "just a number" being hurried through a turn style like so many doctors seem to do these days. And I received expert medical advice and treatment. I highly recommend Dr.Hessing.

Dr. Hessing is a heartless human, who has no compassion for the homeless. When he found out I was living out of my vehicle, he denied me care and screamed at me for parking too long before an appointment in “his” parking lot. Refusing to move so I could leave, instead he blocked my car in with his body and continued to tell me my kind was unwelcome and if he ever saw my car again he would have my car towed, and I “would really find myself homeless.” There was no reason for any of his verbal abuse, I certainly wouldn’t allow this type of person to operate on me or my worst enemy.

After 5 months, I finally found a doctor that I could trust that would explained what I needed to do about my shoulder, he explained in detail what surgery needed to be done, and what I needed to do to make my pain go away. Between the Dr. and Patty, his nurse I was well taken care of, and I was able to reach either one of them at any time if I had any problems or questions which I had plenty of.

Never ordered an MRI. Works as a shill for Idaho State Insurance Fund. I had to originally pay out of pocket for a 2nd opinion. Dr. Roman Schwartzman saw the problem and ordered an MRI. MRI's do not lie, but in my opinion Dr. Hessing and his PA will. They will not be working for you. Schwartzman later surgically repaired my TORN ROTATOR CUFF/TORN LABRUM/and BICEP TENDON REPAIR. The cad of a human being that is Dr. Hessing said there was no problem and I was physically abnormal. He was VERY ugly with me and tried to intimidate me. Hard to intimidate anyone when you have the physique of Jabba the Hut though! Run away as fast as you can and find a reputable Dr.. (I will post my experience with this "doctor" with every new review started....so keep trying. People need to know what kind of a human being this man is!)
