Our appointment was in the morning and the place was relatively empty. Waiting time is too long, between being in the lounge and to the patient room. We waited 45 minutes before being called. Then while in the patient room, between intervals of doctor and medical assistant leaving and entering, it was half an hour in there and only ten minutes were actually with the doctor and MA. It seemed slow pace. Staff isn't the friendliest and we question the medical assistant as we are first timers and she wasn't very informative. Even at the end, we weren't walked out or told where to leave. So we assumed the exit and check out was at the front counter where we checked in. Usually on exit at an efficient office, a staff would walk or tell you where to exit and check out. Not going back. I didn't feel a vibe as they genuinely care for patients.

I had a great experience with them, they were so nice an friendly - they made me feel at ease and answered all my questions. When I arrived the day of my procedure, they did not ask me for one dime and instead said they would bill my insurance and I have terrible insurance and haven't come close to meeting my deductible but they were not at all concerned about money, just me having my procedure and I have never felt more comfortable anywhere! The nurses and staff were all awesome. I would recommend this place to anyone.
Tips & Advices
Balloon sinuplasty, or BSP, is a treatment for people with chronic or recurrent sinusitis. It's a safe, noninvasive and highly effective procedure that is becoming more common among ENTs. To perform BSP, the doctor inserts a small, flexible catheter into the sinus passageway. Next, the catheter is expanded, as like a balloon, to open up the cavity and allow built-up mucus to drain. This also widens the sinus cavity and restructures it to discourage further blockage after the procedure is completed. Then, a saline solution is sprayed into the cavity to wash out any remaining pus or mucus. Finally, the balloon is removed. Most patients find they experience fewer sinus-related symptoms and little to no device-related complications following the procedure.
For basic cases, a decongestant or saline nasal wash can treat sinusitis. A doctor can prescribe these or recommend an over-the-counter remedy. If the sinusitis persists for more than three days, further treatment should be sought. In other cases, a doctor may prescribe antibiotics or steroids. These often are taken over the course of 10 days to two weeks. Warm, moist air, such as that created by a vaporizer or a bowl of hot water, may also treat chronic sinusitis.
Pressure in the ears, also called ear barotrauma, is caused by blockage in the Eustachian tube, which spans from the rear of the nasal cavity to the middle of the ear space. Ear barotrauma is most commonly caused by altitude changes, as in plane rides, scuba diving, or hiking or driving through the mountains.
There are many causes of hoarseness. Common causes include:
  • Acute laryngitis
  • Smoking
  • Excessive use or strain on the vocal chords
Tonsils are two soft, small tissue masses located at the back of the throat. They are a part of the lymphatic system, which helps fight infections, though tonsils don't seem to play a large role in this process. Recurrent tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils), which can be caused by strep throat or other infections, could mean having them removed.
