Gleinser, David, MD
The absolute worst experience I've ever had with a doctor's office. I was prescribed a cpap machine in the beginning of November and it's been almost 2 months of being given the run around by doctor's office employees and I still don't have my machine. I've called several times trying to resolve this issue and all I get is the run around. I've even had the phone hung up on me by the receptionists. I've been transferred to voicemail on purpose. Nothing but "I don't know what's going on" excuses, and I'll call you back (they don't call back) etc. I've never had such a horrible experience like I have with this Doctor's office. I'll never return.

Alamo ENT-Northeast
Dr. Edwards is my doctor and I really appreciate him and his staff. I've been going to them for about 8 years. I spent 3 years searching for a problem with acid reflux and Dr. Edwards was the first doctor to set me on the path to discovering what was wrong. Also, the staff, particularly the office manager, Ms. Ramirez, helped me once when I had a problem with my insurance. My insurance refused to pay the exam fee after I paid the office visit, so she worked out a self-pay discount for me for the exam fee when I unexpectedly had to pay for the exam fee. I would recommend Alamo ENT.
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.
