Dr. Todd Hess knows his profession extremely well. He has been my pain management provider for many years. His expertise has provided me with pain control so that I can function fairly well. I regularly receive nerve blocks and trigger point injections. The medication that I take regularly is not an Opioid that is well managed by Dr. Hess. He is excellent in his field and is encouraging to his patients dealing with chronic pain.

Over prescribes BIG time, gets people addicted, and then drops them when the person succumbs to opiod addiction. I am lucky my loved one is still alive and is in as good of health as they are today.
