I have been blessed to work with Dr. Hessberger for the past year. First of all, she is one of the few doctors left who takes most insurance plans. Admittedly, I was a bit skeptical and wondered if “she was too good to be true.” Happy to say, she was exactly what I had hoped for and way exceeded my expectations. As a doctor myself, I am extremely selective about the care I receive and am not afraid to challenge professionals with questions and concerns. Dr. Hessberger is all about making an alliance with her patients--truly listening and creating a dialogue about health issues and subsequently providing appropriate treatments. I have most benefited from her thorough review of my previous work-ups and ordering tests that could potentially explain my symptoms. For example, I’ve never had such a complete nutritional check-up done that included tests for chromium, zinc, Vitamin K, and amino acids levels. These results were informative, and would have otherwise been missed. I’ve also received ongoing cranio-sacral therapy for eye twitching and other neurological symptoms, and find her to touch to be quite therapeutic. She allows for a very relaxing experience and seems to intuitively know which areas of the body to work on. I’ve referred many patients to her (mostly naturopathic medicine and acupuncture), and none have been disappointed. Many glowing reports include how she is so kind, smart, thorough, patient, caring, compassionate etc. And, I know personally how true those descriptions are. What’s most important to me is that she blends her exceptional intelligence with her heart. She truly wants to be helpful, and gets as frustrated as her patients when recovery gets thwarted. She’s trained as a scientist, and enjoys the investigative process of figuring out health problems and not giving up until answers are found. That’s a lost art, especially in this age of quick diagnoses and handing out prescriptions. She respects her patients, and doesn’t push her treatment recommendations, supplements, or other services onto you. In short, Dr. Hessberger is a true gem, and one of those rare doctors who really does put patients first over all other interests. I will continue to follow her wherever she goes because she’s well worth it!!!
What Our Clients Are Saying
Dr Hessberger is intelligent, kind and likes to research information. I recommend her highly. In several instances she has known things that no MD has informed me of. Her degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology makes her a cut above the rest of the majority of ND's.." Lisa Taylor-Austin
