JP, 8/10/16

I want to thank you so much for saving my life. Before I came to you I was so sick for so long. I couldn’t think straight. I almost ended my life I was so desperate. They just kept throwing more meds at me which just made me feel worse. The sinus infections were so bad, I thought my head was going to explode. That surgery you did was a Godsend. It changed my life. My husband will tell you the same thing. This is the first time I’ve been sick since then, and I wouldn’t even call this sick.

MH, 5/16/18
I have a patient who has been sick for a year and a half, missing work all the time because of daily fever, severe fatigue, and a pounding headache. She couldn’t think straight. Couldn’t focus on her job. She had to go on short term disability while her insurance company drug their feet, denying coverage for the treatment she needed.

After MUCH effort and appeals, she was able to undergo inoffice balloon sinuplasty. I saw her today for her postop appointment. Her HEADACHE IS GONE! She is breathing better and sleeping better. She is back to work, and very happy.
