What a great provider. I do like her no-nonsense approach, only doing tests that are needed and relevant, and she actually looks away from the computer and listens to what one is saying. First doctor ever who has done a full auscultation of heart and lungsUofU Patient October 05, 2015
My visit with Dr. Hess was very informative. She took as much time as I needed to fully understand answers to my questions, and she made sure all of my questions were answered. I am very happy that Dr. Hess is my physician!UofU Patient July 25, 2015
It would always be nice to have more time.UofU Patient June 12, 2015
I appreciate the provider's clear interest and engagement with me as a whole person. Also her respect for my own participation as a partner in my own assessment/treatment.UofU Patient May 08, 2015
Dr. Rachel Hess, the Internal Medicine Clinic and the nurses and assistants are all incredible. Top quality every visit!UofU Patient May 01, 2015
Love Dr. Hess! I have & will continue to recommend her to others. She has a great bedside manner she shares all facts, options, is straight to the point, allows you to decide & ask questions regarding outcome. A Very informative, honest, positive manner in the way she conveys not necessarily the easiest information to share with one, that I wish more Doctors would adapt!!! So thank you much Dr. Hess!UofU Patient April 27, 2015
Although Dr. Hess seems fine, I would not recommend simply because of her schedule in Utah. Even though there is a team of Dr's at Madsen, patients like to see their own doctors. I left with more questions than answers and have wondered if I should send an email to address those issues. Might be my fault, might be hers. She did ask several times what my concerns were and had a great bedside manner, but never went over my initial patient's sheet with me where all of my concerns are written down. I guess I should have asked to go down the sheet so things weren't missed.UofU Patient April 23, 2015
Dr. Hess is wonderful. She takes the time to ask about all aspects of life. Have already recommended her to several friends and family.UofU Patient March 16, 2015

Rachel Hess, MD saved my life. I was deeply depressed and within a few weeks brought me back. She is currently working with me on another special issue and I am fully confident that I will be helped!UofU Patient January 21, 2015
Highly recommend Dr. Hess, she is wonderful!UofU Patient December 24, 2014
I've gone through many doctors without enough time to develop a long-standing relationship, because of moving, insurance changes, etc... and sadly the same is true with Dr. Hess, who is not "in network" with the insurance my employer is forcing me to switch to in January, but of all the doctor's I've seen and communicated with, she is my favorite. She's very forthright, but kind, calming, and seems to care and see me as a person, not an object. I will miss her.UofU Patient December 10, 2014

Dr. Hess is a doctor that all healthcare providers should be, or at least strive to be! Love her she is a Doctor I would highly recommend.UofU Patient August 15, 2014
Dr. Hess was very personable and I immediatly felt comfortable with her. She had a good sense of humor also.UofU Patient August 11, 2014
Dr. Hess is a new provider for me. She is excellent and I trust her completely. She is knowledgeable and honest in answering questions. I hope she stays at the U, as I have had 4 different doctors (aprn's) in the past 7 years. I want to stick with Dr. Hess, as I am now aging (68 yo).UofU Patient July 25, 2014
Some of the information she put in my chart was not accurate based on what I said and wrote in my patient history.
