"Words cannot describe how thankful I am to have met [you]. [Your] knowledge, competence, and patience in describing a procedure and humble demeanor all added up to a very positive overall experience surrounding my surgery. The staff was outstanding as well — always polite, responsive and informative. Thank you all for helping me to breathe through my nose better than I have been able to for the past 10 years, and for giving reason to believe that there really still are some patient, caring people left in the medical industry."

– Mitch, 45-year-old after surgery for nasal obstruction

"This office is one of the best, if not the best, medical offices I have personally dealt with. I’m sorry to say, you don’t really know how rare that is! Many in the medical field have become jaded and forget what it is like to be the patient. Keep doing what you are doing. You have restored my faith in the medical profession, of which I am a member."

– Donna, 48-year-old patient for perforated ear drum surgery

"…your clinic and staff are the best and the service was outstanding. Some offices these days act like they are doing you a big favor by allowing you in the door and the reception, friendly people and the thorough examination was really appreciated. Obviously you work with a bunch of kids as you explained what you were doing and were very patient and gentle when you examined [my daughter]. She too really appreciated being in your office."

– Robert, father of 15-year-old adenoidectomy and inferior turbinate reduction patient

"I want you to know that I am doing great and I never got another sinus infection since you did surgery on me. I have not been sick at all. I referred two friends to you and they were treated as well. Thank you for fixing me up."

– Catherine, 46-year-old patient after sinus surgery

"I just want to thank you so much for the care you provided my daughter during her surgery. Your acts of kindness and your big hearts will never be forgotten."

– Amanda, mother of 13-year-old patient after septoplasty & adenotonsillectomy

"Thank you. I can’t believe I waited 60 years to be able to breathe through my nose and you made it happen. You and your staff…all the way to the billing dept are wonderful."

– Fonda, 60-year-old patient after septoplasty and inferior turbinate reduction

"I wanted to write to let you know how impressed I was with everyone I met [at your office]. The Front Desk Staff immediately greeted me … the person who brought me in to the patient room greeted me with a smile. Both the intake nurse and the doctor himself were warm, friendly, knowledgeable, and really took the time to ask me questions and listen to my answers. I would recommend [your] services to anyone looking for superior care from people who are genuinely interested in the well-being of their patients."

– Shelly, 42 year old new patient

"My upper and lower eye lift turned out wonderful. All eyelid droopiness, under-eye fatty pockets and sagging skin – now gone. You can barely see the scar and I haven’t even finished healing yet. I’m 50 and lovin’ it. Thank you!"

– Kathy, 50-year-old patient after upper and lower blepharoplasty

"I had been thinking about getting an upper eyelid procedure for about 5 years. I happened to run into a friend who had her upper eyelid procedure done at this office. Her results were great…. I met with [the doctor] and his team and had an instant connection with them. I had my upper and lower eyelid procedures done and I love my new look! [The doctor] did a great job and his team is awesome. I’m so happy!"

– Rosie, 50-year-old patient after upper and lower blepharoplasty

"I was so impressed by the demeanor and thoroughness and consideration your office provides. Compliments to the doctors because I know that those things begin at the top. The professionalism and the concern you all conveyed to me was hands and feet over the other office I visited. Thank you so very much."

– Kristin, 25-year-old patient after consultation for rhinoplasty

"There are no words to explain how very thankful I am for your time and your skills to reconstruct my face. Daily, people tell me that I look wonderful and they are amazed at what a wonderful job you have done. I thank you very much for what I look like today."

– Allen, 25-year-old facial trauma patient

"Thank you. I am so grateful for the phenomenal results of my surgery. I sincerely appreciate your medical expertise and surgical skills. My scar line is invisible. I look like myself again. When I look in the mirror, I am thankful that you were my surgeon."

– Dianne, 55-year-old facial melanoma patient

"I wanted to thank you for your empathy and quality care during my appointment with you. You not only made me feel better but also made me look better. I am very pleased with the Juvéderm that you placed in my face. Thank you again."

– Julie, 45-year-old patient after Juvéderm treatment

"I have been going to the Medical Spa for several years and have been enormously pleased with how they’ve kept up with the latest technology and available treatments. They provide me with the information I need to make good decisions, don’t keep me waiting when I arrive and always make sure I am comfortable throughout the procedures. [They] explain what [they are] doing and adjust [their] pace to fit my tolerance, if necessary. I have been quite pleased with the results I’ve had from the Medical Spa."

– Doré, 48-year-old skin care patient

"[You] performed a life changing sinus surgery for me several years ago. Prior surgeries with other docs offered me no relief. [You were] able to fix my sinus problems from which I suffered for over 12 years! Best of all, my surgery was a smashing success with very minimal discomfort. Relatively painless with a very quick recovery. What more could I ask for? Since my personal experience with [you], I have recommended [your] services to my friends and family. All have been completely satisfied."

"Three years ago [you] removed my 13 year-olds adenoids at our local surgery center. We went camping later that same day!"

"Professional and very knowledgeable. Excellent surgeon. I’ve had sinus surgery by other doctors in the past. [You were] the only one who (finally) fixed my problems – and then some. [You were] conscientious and took extra steps to achieve success. I am most grateful to have hooked up with someone so well skilled. Office staff is a pleasure to deal with and [you] have one knowledgeable person dedicated to effectively dealing with insurance."

"[You were] very patient and thorough. [You] took the time to educate me about my nasal and sinus problems. [You] actually walked me through my CT scan to show me where I had disease and where surgery is done. I never felt rushed. Surgery went great—I’m breathing better and sleeping better than I have in years and I don’t get sick all the time any more. Great bedside manner. Super friendly staff."
