I'm shouting from the roof tops about Dr. Melissa Hogg......and NSU should as well. This magnificent woman, this life-giver, is truly off the charts when it comes to being at the TOP OF HER PROFESSION. Melissa Hogg is a gift to the medical profession and surely to NSU.
Dr. Hogg had reviewed her notes from a previous surgery she had performed on me. She was very aware of my situation.
Dr. Hogg spent time taking and explaining question. I never felt that she was in a rush to move to her next patient
Dr Hogg was informative and reassuring, while being completely professional.
