Dr. Ness is the A-team, he diagnosed and corrected a problem I had several years ago. The doctors in Jackson, TN totally missed the problem. Dr. Ness explained all of it to me and my wife.

He was helpful
Patient | February 22, 2016

Dr. Ness - Words cannot express what he did for me. He not only helped me medically, he helped me emotionally. He gave me hope when I needed it the most! Dr. Ness and I e-mail frequently on He usually gets back to me that same day. He emails me back - No a nurse, which impressed me very much. I couldn't ask for a more caring doctor!
