Dr. Hess is very personable and friendly. She is also very forthright in explaining my condition(s) and clearly explains the appropriate treatment(s). She quickly and efficiently referred me to another doctor for further and more advanced treatment for a melanoma that developed and has been diligent to continue follow-up for that treatment. I appreciate her knowledge and care.
