I had nasal surgery in July with Dr. Nachlas that involved computer-assisted sinus surgery and a polyp was removed, nasal obstruction corrected, turbinate reduction, and septoplasty to fix a deviated septum. it’s been a complete turnaround. My nostrils were not working in the sense that I couldn’t breathe through them, I didn’t have a sense of smell which also interrupted the sense of taste, and there was constant draining This went on for 6 or 7 years and so I was frustrated and miserable. Now after the surgery I’m breathing! I said to a friend of mine, it’s so odd that I can smell things now, that I can smell everything, it makes me kind of sick! If I’m in a restaurant, I can smell stuff. This hasn’t happened in over 7 years. To be able to do that, it’s like experiencing everything over again and experiencing food again. All I can say is it’s been wonderful and I highly recommend Dr. Nachlas!

My MD gave me a couple names for septoplasty and Dr. Nachlas was one of the highly recommended doctors. I'd say that my first visit with him was perfect. Everything was done smoothly and comfortable. I had an infection and they took care of that after it happened, so I didn’t have any problems with the whole procedure. The results came out better than expected, actually. I think it was a success and so I’m very pleased with the way they handled their business. If you need anything done, I recommend you check with Dr. Moynihan first.

The sinus surgery and nose reconstruction procedure was easy. Of course there was anxiety because it’s a major surgery and it’s a face changer, but I recommend it to anybody who is thinking about it. I am more confident about the way I look and my overall breathing is amazing! Dr. Nachlas is so meticulous and what he did for my face is perfect. He’s extremely talented and amazing at what he does. Now that it’s done, I wish I had done it sooner.

Dr. Nachlas was the best choice I felt I could make for a Revision Rhinoplasty. Everything was done well at all times and I feel good. I look natural rather than man-made, so I couldn’t ask for more. Dr. Nachlas is excellent at what he does and he is pleasant in person. He’s a great surgeon in the aesthetic, artistic sense. I never had any complaints and couldn’t be more satisfied. It was great.

I had a Septoplasty, Secondary Rhinoplasty, and Sinus Surgery. I received great care at the hospital and the clinic; it was an excellent surgical procedure. Everything was done correctly and my healing has been doing great! I can breathe 100% better. Dr. Nachlas is very precise and reasonably willing to do exactly as you need. They make the patient happy, but they’re realistic at the same time.

I had Mohs surgery and Dr. Nachlas put it all back together. After the surgery he cleaned and stitched it back up in no time. He explained everything upfront so I had no surprises. It’s hard to believe it was even there. By far, he is excellent. I don’t think I have ever run across an office so well organized and efficient.

Dr. Nachlas’ experience motivated me to select him for sinus surgery. It’s not a big deal at all. It’s an important procedure, bit it’s painless and the results are fantastic! I saw results after just two days…
Tips & Advices
The cost to see a pulmonologist can vary depending on several factors, starting with the cost of the appointment. This can range from around $50 on up, depending on location, etc.  You will likely have to take, at a minimum, a spirometry test which records the rate and amounts of air inhaled and exhaled. This initial test is used to diagnose lung conditions. From there your doctor may have to have more tests to further diagnose your condition. If you are paying out-of-pocket, you can expect a minimum cost of your office visit and spirometry test. Obviously additional tests, severity of condition, and other variables can influence your cost. Pulmonologists are usually billable under most insurance plans, but consult your policy or insurance representative to understand what your plan covers.
Pneumonia is an infection of one or both of the lungs. There is no singular cause of pneumonia, making it a common and dangerous ailment. There are more than 30 germs, bacteria and viruses that can cause it. The usual symptoms of pneumonia include coughing with phlegm, fever and chills and difficulty breathing.  The air sacs in the lungs may fill with fluid and this is when it can be very dangerous and potentially fatal. Pneumonia is especially dangerous in infants, people older than 65, and people with reduced immunity. It is usually treatable with antibiotics and over the counter medicines and can sometimes be prevented with vaccines.
Cystic Fibrosis, or CF, is a genetically-inherited progressive respiratory disease that damages the lungs and digestive systems. As the disease progresses, frequent infections limit and reduce the ability to breathe. The defective gene causes production and buildup of thick mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs, due to a defective gene that produces a protein called the CFTR. Symptoms may include frequent lung infection, a persistent cough that produces thick mucus, breathlessness, intolerance to exercise, and frequently inflamed sinuses or nasal passages. Due to the seriousness of CF, it is standard now for all newborns to be screened for it. CF is a life-threatening disease that can be treated to ease the symptoms, but ultimately cannot be cured.
Bronchitis is an illness caused by a viral infection in which the lining of the bronchial tubes in the lungs become inflamed, causing reduces airflow capabilities to and from the lungs. Primary symptoms of bronchitis and acute bronchitis are chronic or persistent cough, and coughing up mucus. These can also be symptomatic of other respiratory conditions, so be sure get a correct diagnosis from your physician. Bronchitis is easily treatable and can take a few days or even weeks to fully recover depending on the strength of the strain, time of diagnosis and the person’s health and recovery abilities. You can treat bronchitis on your own without medical attention, assuming it is not an extreme condition.
Sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder in which a person’s breathing is interrupted or stopped during sleep. Sleep apnea can be dangerous because the lack of breathing deprives the body and brain of crucial oxygen. Symptoms of sleep apnea may include loud snoring and feeling tired, even after a full night’s sleep. These can also be symptoms of other respiratory conditions, and even be harmless coincidences, so be sure to consult your physician for clarity and proper diagnosis. Age and obesity are primary risk factors for sleep apnea and it is more common in men. Sleep apnea treatments include lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise, and the use of breathing assistance (CPAP) machines at night.
