Dr. Hess was recommended to me by my Dermatologist Dr. James T. Schwartz. He could not have recommended a better Plastic Surgeon. Dr. Hess is so kind he makes you feel so comfortable in his presence. He fully explained what was going to take place for my particular case. The staff at Northwest surgical center was fabulous. My Anesthesiologist Dr. McCoy was so wonderful and he took care of me all through my surgery. Thanks to you all. Thanks Dr. Hess for being so wonderful Sally Le Page

I needed a Breast reduction to relieve back, neck & shoulder issues. After consulting with Dr. Hess I felt he was the right surgeon for me. He discussed the procedure answering any questions I or my husband had regarding the surgery. On surgery day, he spent time talking with us again and reassuring us that it would be a success and it was! I feel so much healthier and an important side note, I realized a huge boost in my energy levels, self esteem and I feel like the women I was 20 yrs ago.

Dr. Hess listened to me and explained the details of my breast reduction surgery plainly. He made me feel very comfortable and cared for. I was so happy with my results, it literally changed my life. I felt so good about myself that my surgery was the starting point for a life transformation. Through exercise and making healthy choices I lost a lot of weight. Thanks to the confidence I received from Dr Hess' skilled hands I am healthier than I was 20 years ago. I can't thank him enough.

Dr. Hess is amazing! I would highly recommend Dr. Hess for reconstructive surgery. I interviewed 3 surgeons and Dr. Hess was by far superior. I am extremely happy with my surgery outcome.

Thrilled with the results of my lower blepharoplasty and filler injections. But even more impressive was Dr. Hess, himself. His cheerful demeanor is calming and reassuring. He listened, and patiently answered all my questions. Don't even think about seeing another plastic surgeon - he's your man. Barbara Tucson AZ

I had breast augmentation with Dr. Hess. I visited several surgeons before choosing Dr. Hess and I couldn't be happier with my decision. He took a systematic approach to helping me select the right size breast implants for my body and at the same time made me feel comfortable.
in Mesa, AZ |
Dr. Hess is by far one of the most friendly, respectful, and knowledgable a medical professional that I have ever had. He gives great advice and I could not have trusted him more with the outcome of my surgery and speedy recovery.
