Dr. Ness is an exceptional, consummate professional with an excellent staff. He is intelligently inquisitive and personally engaging while ' " getting-to -the-point ". He's terrific.

Very good.
Patient | May 2, 2018

Dr. Ness was amazing. I really appreciated his professionalism, guidance, and his help.
Patient | April 1, 2018

I believe Dr. Ness could have been a better listener. Also, I felt he dismissed some information I tired to give him, although he provided his reasoning for that. I was not comfortable trying to explain further.
Patient | March 12, 2018

He was very smug, not friendly at all; not very patient.
Patient | March 9, 2018

Excellent doctor happy with my care.

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.
