Dr. Ness was fantastic. He really helped me get a better understanding of my symptoms and what might be contributing to my problems, as well as thoroughly going over possible next steps. I felt that he spent a good deal of time with me--more than I was expecting--and was just a genuinely knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful person to engage with. I will recommend him to others

Dr. Ness isn't very approachable. They needed information about when medical procedures had happened, but didn't let me know. I have all that information on my home computer and could have brought it with me.
