    Dr Bess and his staff provide impeccable care. I was greeted by name and didn’t have to wait for very long. My heel ulcer has healed over and I couldn’t be happier with the standard of care.

    Sara R.

    The staff here is always really warm and welcoming, they always do a good job of checking in on you if you’ve been waiting for too long (they have a timer outside the room & if it goes off they come to check). Also, Dr. Bess is probably one of my favorite doctors I’ve ever seen, he’s great.
