Ratings for Dr. Steven J. Hess
Doctor Hess has operated on my neck twice. I consider him an awesome Dr. I think more doctors should be like him, he is into the detail he's on top of things. I just can't say enough I travel an hour just to get there. I was told by my neurologist he was the best and I believe it. Thank you Dr. Hess
Last year, my husband was having a great deal of trouble walking and as time went on, I noticed he began to shuffle. Thru his regular MD, he was referred to a neurosurgeon named Arkin who advised him that he had a pulled hamstring. Months later he was increasingly getting worse (as was the pain) so it was obvious it was more serious than a hamstring. By the grace of God we eventually ended up at Dr. Hess's office and he immediately diagnosed the problem as stenosis. Immediately! He recommended surgery which he performed a few weeks after the initial visit and it's seriously like a miracle. Not only is Dr. Hess a genius, he's got a wonderful bedside manner and an equally wonderful sense of humor. I'm not one to leave reviews but if ever a person deserves it, it's Dr. Hess. He has literally changed our lives for the better. MUCH better. We will always be grateful and sincerely thank him from the bottom of our hearts.
have had 2 lower back operations. Both surgeries went well. i am now looking at a operation on my cervical. He may be curt or whatever. I am not there to play games, but to have myself fixed. I don't care if he has a poor bedside manner, just as long he does a good job on my spine.
I had cervical fusion in March 2011. The staff was very efficient and organized. Dr. Hess does not have the best bed-side manner but he is very competant and skilled. His assistant does most of the patient contact and is very friendly and knowledgable. My neck issue was resolved.
