Dr. Philip A. Matorin
Very nice Doctor. I was a bit disappointed with the wait time. However his staff is young and clueless - no experience. But Phillip is a smart doctor... I liked his bed side manner...Knowledgeable . However I will not return due to the massive wait time and a support staff that is clueless..

Dr. Ninh Ham Nguyen, DO
************HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE***************I saw Ninh Nguyen (not deserving of Doctor title IMO) a year ago for a very urgent matter. He was condescending, rude, pompous, unsympathetic to my very real pain, dismissive and couldn't get me out of there fast enough. And left the room without explaining anything, I had to ask the nurse what was happening. After seeing many ENTs over a year without results, out of desperation, I went back to see him. He was even more pompous, condescending and rude!! He acted put out that I was bothering him by being there!! He never even LOOKED at my file (his file) at his diagnosis from the previous year and diagnosed me with something entirely different and off the wall!! I felt like I was in the twilight zone! Either he is entirely incompetent, or just plain mean. His receptionist Erica learned from her boss because she is extremely rude and arrogant as well. All the way around a NIGHTMARE. BEWARE!

TERRIBLE care. My appointment was at 3 pm and I arrived at 2:50 pm. I proceeded to wait in extreme discomfort until 4:10 at which point I left as I had yet to see my doctor. I will NOT be returning.
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.
