Excellent Dr. 5-star Service from the Dr. I've been treated all over the country and in the military. The Doc was courteous well educated, yet simplistic and to the point in the diagnosis. He made me feel confident and informed, as if the Dr was fully prepared for my appt/procedure, unlike others who have developed an "I'm super busy, you good... Gotta go mindset."

I have been going to see this doctor for a good while & he always address any questions I have. He address any problems or issues I have at the time of the visit & DOESN'T SAY: "we will see next time."

*Dr. Ness is very knowledgeable. He seems to want to impress one with this knowledge and, at times, presents himself as arrogant and smug.
