    Dr. Hess saved my tail. He made an instant commitment to perform surgery on me the very same day that he saw me. I needed it desperately, as I was in agony. He performed the very long and complex surgery (laminectomy/discectomy/foraminotomy) flawlessly. When I woke up in the morning, he was at the foot of my bed. Though he was scheduled to work at another location (far away), he got up extra early to drive out and check on me. Oh yeah, all of this occurred around the Xmas holiday...EPIC!
