    I'm really surprised that Dr. Pickford's rating is average. I went to him for not only for sinus congestion surgery but also for surgical sleep apnea treatment. He was exceptionally knowledgable about my options. Post surgery I not only have clear sinuses but I've also been able to stop using my CPAP. I feel he's a gifted surgeon and have already recommended him to some of my friends.
