I'm not sure what this person was talking about but they seem to want to cut and paste the nonsense as much around the web as possible. I have been a patient (and consider myself a friend) of Dr. Goltry for 10 years now. He has always been respectful and was instrumental in saving my life! I'm sorry this other person seems to think he's not 'nice' enough to her hispanic-ness but I can tell anyone who wants that he's not biased against hispanics or anyone else. The only message I've gotten from him is that the government has ruined healthcare...and that a lot of that started due to greed of a large number of physicians back in the '60s, when free handouts through Medicare started. About the only people I have ever seen Dr. Goltry disrespect are some of our elected government officials and those political types that think socialized medicine is the only right way to have doctors work. That being said, politics is not Dr. Goltry's primary interest....his patients are. I've been in his office pretty much every month or two, and the patients are always his priority. I see happy, smiling faces leaving...not angry ones. My only thought is that there is a political agenda in the other review, so hopefully this one balances things out a little.

Dr. Goltry treated me back in the mid 80's and continued treating me until my insurance ran out in the early 90's. He corrected a botched surgery for an inner ear infection by a previous surgeon. He was very professional, was always polite and respectful. I was happy to see he is still serving patients. I would highly recommend him. A year ago, during my first doctor exam since Dr. Goltry I mentioned my cholesteatoma surgery. She was training a medical student that day and was excited for her and the student to examine the results. When I asked how it looked, she said it looked GREAT. I was so relieved. THANKS Dr. Goltry!

I took my son to Dr. Goltry on a Saturday. He was planning to meet another patient in his office for a dressing removal post surgery. My son has had numerous nose bleeds over the last year. Dr. Goltry cauterized his nose and fixed the problem on a Saturday. He also cauterized my husbands nose several years ago and he has yet to have a nose bleed. Dr. Goltry takes his own call - numerous times I have called him expecting to get an answering service, but get to talk with him instead. He is the last of a great generation of physicians.

Several years ago I went to another ENT group in Boise and was treated like a number. Then my children's pediatrician referred me to Dr. Goltry and he was marvelous with my children. He's been our ENT doctor since. When I had serious vertigo, he diagnosed me correctly, and the vertigo has been controlled ever since.
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.
