03/12/11 5 4 5 5 I took my son to see Dr. Hess after we moved to FL. He had eye surgery in OH and that Dr. overcorrected his eye. Dr. Hess did another surgery and 4 years later his eyes are still great! Dr. Hess was fantastic from the office visits to the surgery. I highly recommend him!! His staff is wonderful and the staff at All Childrens Hospital are awesome! I will be taking my two year old to see him soon!

11/09/10 5 4 5 5 Great physician! Very good with children! Recommended from another adult ophthalmologist who said they would take their children to see Dr. Hess. This is the best compliment a physician could receive, I believe.  Respond

05/06/07 5 5 5 We had an excellent experience with this doctor. For one child, Dr. Hess saw us the same afternoon with an emergency referral from our pediatrician. For another episode, we saw a less that great ophthalmologist in the ER, but Dr. Hess saw my other child first thing the following Monday to follow up. He is great with the kids and very knowledgeable and reassuring in emergency situations. I highly recommend him.  Respond
