Patient Comments (1)
in belvidere,ill |
It is with great regret and sadness that I had to find another m.d. Dr Hess retired last year, and he was my m.d. when I first moved to belvidere 10 years ago. I am finding a hard time now, jumping around to Dr after Dr trying to find one just like Dr Hess... Dr Hess treated me with the utmost respect, and his caring attitude AND knowledge is a rarity now days. He was ALWAYS spot on with all my diagnosis.....I miss you Dr Hess won't you please come back to work?! Please! HIS RN Monica is great!
