    How was your appointment with Dr. Hess?

    Jan 24, 2023
    I was able to get an appointment with about two weeks lead time. It had been several years since visiting Florida Orthopedic Institute. I filled all the necessary check in requirements on line prior to arrival. Was sent immediately to xrays when I checked in,l then waited to see Dr. Hess only about 5-10 minutes. The treatment was about what I expected since I researched on line. Follow up in about 6 weeks and hopefully the cortisone shots I received provided some relief for pain in hands and trigger finger .
