Dr. Hess is one of the best dermatologists in her field. I developed a case of Lichen Planus after I had Ulcerative Colitis. She was quick to biopsy and diagnose the problem so we could find treatme nt. She is always researching my condition and looking for diffrent options for me because I am sensitive to a lot of meds. She has been more than generous with samples and has a bubbly nice personality. We are blessed to have her in our community. No need to travel to Indy or Ft. Wayne for great Dermatology care!!!

I have been seeing Dr. Hess for years and have found her to be very professional und up to date on current treatments. She has worked with my chronic condition of Lichen Planus which is a very difficult problem to control. I highly recommend her and Marion is very fortunate to have her and her expertise here.

They out of their day to call me so I don't forget my appointment. They are extremely reliable. Everyone in my community knows that they are the absolute best in the field. There was lots of available parking at their office. I was glad that I didn't have to drive around looking for parking. They are so kind and caring, and they stay open way past their closing time to help anyone who needs them. They wouldn't deny anyone that needed help. I know I can always count on them. They went out of their way to make me feel special and respected, and were very sympathetic to my situation. I've never seen more kindness and empathy anywhere else.My skin problem was taken care or in an efficient and caring manner
