Excellent doctor happy with my care.
Patient | February 20, 2018

Dr. Ness is the bar other dr.s strive to reach as dr. and a person.
Patient | February 13, 2018

I only waited 30 min to see him. He was polite as he came in the room but it went down hill fast. He was cold, dismissive when I asked questions or commented. 8. It was his & I have a medical background. Attitude.

My wife Vicky and I love Dr. Ness!
Patient | December 20, 2017

Dr. Ness seemed to over-explain basic concepts (how bacteria in the gut is good for you) and completely skip over important parts like why I was experiencing the level of pain I was in.
Patient | December 16, 2017

I do not believe you can find a better doctor than Dr. Ness!
Patient | December 11, 2017

I have seen him for yrs. and he increasingly doesn't want to veer off of the path. Not everyone is the same. Things have changed and he sees things one way that is it!
Patient | November 11, 2017

He was very thorough, made me and my husband very comfortable. Did not rush the visit and helped me to better understand my issues.
Patient | November 7, 2017

10. In different official cold.
Patient | October 9, 2017

He never look at all my ER visits this summer & CT, x-ray, EDG, colonoscopy reports - All he referred to was reports sent to him 8 months ago.
Patient | September 27, 2017

Dr. made us both feel comfortable & not rushed. Dr. Ness A+ - looking forward to next visit.
Patient | September 19, 2017

Dr. Ness shares information about his latest vacation; family time; a very personal doctor, good doctor.
Patient | July 24, 2017

He seemed too busy to render good care.
Patient | June 23, 2017

I always feel like this doctor has my best interest and care in mind.
Patient | March 29, 2017

Good experience.
Patient | March 23, 2017

Excellent, glad to have him on my provider team. 8. The provider excellent in this area. He seemed to pick up how I better understood things through metaphor even though I also know medical terminology.
Patient | February 16, 2017

Dr. Ness is great. I don't mind driving 2 hours to see him for an app't.
