Was very rushed and he almost seemed annoyed at times. Plus heard him scolding an employee which was very unprofessional. I felt bad for her that I was able to overhear it. Guess he was having a bad day.

Dr. Ress is awesome. Very very kind man, receptive to concerns, always quick to follow up. I like that my yearly physical is performed by a doctor rather than a nurse practitioner or physician's assistant. Highly recommended!

Dr Ress is great, a real professional in all respects. Admissions was a bit of a hassle with my insurance. It was mailed ahead of time but no records were found. I had to call to confirm the policy which Ifelt the staff should had done which never did speak to the representative. Other than that minor issue all went well.
