Everybody in the clinic was super friendly and Dr. Hess explained the pros and cons of the procedure that I want. He listened to my concerns and answered all of my questions.

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.
