Dr. Hessel did my Dad's surgery and I can't say enough good things about him. He was kind and very professional. The surgery went very smooth and my Dad was able to recuperate amazingly.

Not impressed. The way he talks to his patients is horrible! I think he believes he can say anything because he's a step above you. He will even ask you to say "Thank you, for saving my life"! Better Doctors at Arizona Heart!
