Christopher L. Hess, MD Reviews (293)

Tummy Tuck

I felt comfortable with the staff from the start because everybody was non judgmental and supportive. Never having had surgery before, I was really nervous in the days leading up to the surgery, but the professionalism and that this is really no big deal were the expert's attitude, which helped alleviate this anxiety. The recovery has been smooth and encouraging; I love that Dr. Hess takes time to joke around and chit-chat. I think this helps the process immensely. Shelly's deep, compassionate gaze was very comforting during the early weeks of recovery. You can tell that she cares and that she understands that this is so much more than a superficial quest to look good.

The entire process was easy and Katie, Shelly and Dr. Hess are easy to talk to and I never felt hurried or pressured thru the entire process.

Dr. Hess and his assistant took the time to listen to the issues I am experiencing. They explained the procedure and what benefits that it would bring.

Upon my responding that I needed to lose weight prior to having the surgery, Dr. Hess ecstatically responded that was the best thing to do and offered suggestions of life changes even he had made. I felt cared for by a doctor more than ever in my 46 years.
