I've struggled with sinus congestion for years-constant use of decongestant sprays just to be able to breathe. The thought of sinus surgery really scared me because I'd heard lots of horror stories. Dr. Alvi promised the surgery to repair my deviated septum and clean out my sinuses would be painless and effective and he didn't lie. Anytime I called with questions, he returned my call personally. He's kind and genuinely cares. I'm 100% better thanks to him. Simply put, he's the ABSOLUTE BEST!!!

Dr. Alvi recently took our four year old son's tonsils out. He did an excellent job and the recovery was great. We have been happy with every visit to his office. Everyone is always friendly, the wait time is minimal and we trust Dr. Alvi's opinions and recommendations.

I had terrible sinus issues for years and decided to finally get it taken care of. Dr Alvi was quick and to the point and didn't make me try a million different things before finding the one that would work. We did an allergy test and ct of my sinuses and decided sinus surgery would be the best route for my issue. I was asleep for surgery but the recovery was painless. The surgery was on a Wednesday and I was back at work the following Monday. Dr. Alvi was great and I highly recommend him!
