I felt implored to leave this after how my fianc was treated today. He has suffered with chronic sinus issues for years. We recently saw another ENT doctor and he spent about 5 minutes doing a brief exam and told my fianc that he had allergy problems. This is while he was coughing up the entire visit and complaining of sinus pressure. Suffice to say, we were not happy with that visit. We initially saw Dr. Anand when he worked at Ochnser. We were always happy with his bedside manner. We looked him up again and during our visit he not only spent time with us, but performed XRay imaging and diagnosed chronic sinusitis. We had our plan of attack and are going to get an office procedure in a few weeks. If you have any problems with sinus issues, this is the place to go. Dr. Anand is truly a good doctor.

Having driven from 2 hours away, I was pleased to discover that you undergo all relevant testing during your first office visit. I met with the doctor and had my CT Scan at the same time, in the office. THis was very efficient, especially as I come from a long distance away. We had a plan of action during the end of my visit as well. Highly recommend this office as it is an efficient use of your time. You may wait a little to get in the back, as they are busy, but it's worth it when you complete the entire work up in one visit.

I am happy to review my experience because the level of service here is quite high. It is not like most doctor's office as they have a high standard of customer service. I work in the food service industry and can appreciate excellent service when I see it. All the staff members smile and are very willing to help. Also, Dr. A mirrors this attitude, and it likely comes from him. The work up is very thorough and I felt every minute of my time was well spent. I recommend this place highly.

I am thoroughly pleased with my experience at GNO Snoring. I have been a CPAP user for 5 years. I always suffer with congestion. Dr. Anand diagnosed sinus polyps as the cause of my problems. I had surgery and breathe much better. I am not overweight so I was surprised to learn that I needed CPAP. Once I had surgery, my follow up sleep study did not show any sleep apnea. I am not sure why anyone did not look for this for 5 years. I am happy to have come across Dr. Anand. Thank you.

I would like to review my office experience. I did experience a wait to get in the back, but after my total visit I understand why that occurred. This is not a simple doctor visit. I not only saw the doctor, but had my XRay performed and a long tube placed in my nose to diagnose polyps. Afterwards we booked my surgery. It was all done in 30 minutes! The staff is very professional and you can tell they are at the top of their profession .

This spa has the best relaxation room and if you get to you appointment early, they have the best robes to change into and you get a complimetary warm stone foot soak. There is a locker room where your things are stored securely. You sit in the most comfortable overstuffed chairs, get a warm neck wrap, Enjoy the beautiful fountain, relaxing candlelight and music. I will definitely be back. Definitely worth the try.

My father just completed an office procedure. I decided to fill this out to say how pleased I was at how they treated my dad. He is elderly and needed accommodations for his medical problems. They arranged time for us to be seen, and fit us in on a day they usually do not do procedures. Very nice people. He is breathing much better now. Thank you Dr. Anand.

I was diagnosed with Sleep Apnea. Given my medical problems, I cannot have surgery. Dr. Anand worked with my machine and updated my equipment so I can tolerate my mask easier. Most doctors wanted to do surgery, Dr. Anand provided surgical options but was willing to work with me to accommodate my medical issues. Very nice man. I now sleep much better.

I enjoyed my visit. I had an emergency room visit for an infection and was told to follow up with an ENT. Dr. Anand's office made sure I was seen within 24 hours. They caught my infection progressing and drained it further. I just had my follow up and am doing much better. Thank you so much for treating patients like patients!
Tips & Advices
Scoliosis is a disorder where the spine curves sideways. Most people develop the condition during the growth spurt before puberty. The cause of scoliosis is unknown and most cases are mild, but the rare severe instances can disable a person.
Orthopedic surgeons attend four years of medical school, then four to five years of orthopedic residency in a hospital. They must also be licensed and certified in orthopedic surgery by the state in which they practice.
The terms "orthopedic doctor" and "orthopedic surgeon" refer to the same profession. Related specialties include podiatrist, a doctor who works with the bones, tendons and ligaments in the feet, and a sports medicine physician, a doctor specially trained to treat athletes.
The cost of a visit to an orthopedic surgeon depends on the type of tests ordered and treatment given. For example, an MRI costs $500-$1,300. An initial consultation costs $100- $500, while anesthesia for a procedure generally ranges from $2,000-$4,000. Overall, an orthopedic surgery can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000.
During a consultation or first appointment with an orthopedic surgeon, the practitioner will ask the patient a variety of questions to understand the situation. The surgeon might ask about the patient's pain levels, medical history, and any prior injuries. Then, the surgeon will administer a physical exam and possibly schedule tests to better understand the problem. Possible tests include a stress test, x-ray, or MRI.
