Testimonials

The best doctor you will ever visit. Conscientious, thorough and a complete professional delight!

Dr. Hesse was recommended to me by my osteopath and I have been recommending her since then. She is very thorough, warm and really takes her time with a patient. I have not encountered anything like her in Manhattan – she recommended therapy and gave me advice for daily life, which I really appreciated. My symptoms are gone, and I am happy I found a great orthopedist in case anything flares up again. She takes insurance as well, which is a great bonus.

Dr Hesse did a great first check up on me and had me get an MRI and X-ray to find out what’s going on. She suspected something and wanted to be sure. When results came in, she discussed them thoroughly with me and planned the next move. Her protocol for me is working. First time feeling this in over a year. Recovery will be slow. But I’m so encouraged because the problem has been determined. Yay.

Very conveniently located. Responds to questions by calls or emails.

Thanks dr. Hesse.

I think Dr. Hesse was extremely thorough and understood exactly what I needed to correct the many problems I am suffering from. She left no stone unturned while examining me.

Dr. Hesse, MD, a non-surgical orthopedist, is my “go-to” doctor. She gives a very thorough examination after I explain what my various issues are. When I call for an emergency appointment, she has me come in right away. Dr. Hesse is a rare individual who cares about her patients & addresses their various needs. Besides taking care of my back & hips as an orthopedist, she recommends excellent doctors with the same work ethics she has.

Dr. Hesse never seems to rush through appointments. She is very thorough in her assessments and diagnosis. She is very good about explaining what is happening and answers all questions. In addition,she will recommend home treatments to continue the healing process at home and in between appointments. I recommend her without reservation.

Dr Silvia Hesse has been treating me for several years with various orthopedic problems and has been the most caring and helpful doctor I have visited in my life.  She will take her time to examine you thoroughly and really cares about her patients getting well quickly.

She speaks fluent German, too.

I’m inspired to write my 1st zocdoc review because I LOVED this doctor! Dr. Hesse was thorough, patient, caring, knowledgeable, practical. She provided help on a variety of levels–meds, ordering tests, thorough exam & history taking (& completely accommodating when I couldn’t fill out forms because my writing arm out of commission), informing me about adjustments I need to make to my computer set-up and my posture, explaining what’s down the road in terms of chiropractics & PT. I would normally have spent more time finding a referral from a friend but I was in a lot of pain & needed to find someone pronto, but I think I hit the jackpot. She runs sort of a non-standard ofc — her secty seems to be off-site & Dr. handled billing herself but all very friendly & prof’l. But I did run into a little trouble reaching her secty when my prescription hadn’t arrived electronically at my pharmacy. Being eco-conscious myself, I also like her goal of trying to be as paper-free as possible.

I have been to many doctors and as I am a dentist I can truly say I know professional service. I can say without reservation that Dr. Hesse is one of the most professional caring knowledgeable physicians I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. I would recommend her to anyone, and I will!!
