I had allergies & I was able to get an appt only after a month and a half. By then my allergies had gone but I still went for the checkup anyways just to rule out any other problems. Had to wait for more than 40 mins even with an apptmt and the doctor came in with his assistant and literally just looked inside my nostrils with a tiny probe with a flashlight. He did not mention that this was an endoscopy and NOR did it feel like. Now I recvd bill for over 700$ and classified as surgery :( :(

Dr. Tessema is not only a very knowledgeable doctor but has a great personality and bedside manner. He is patient and answers all questions thoroughly . From my first visit he made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. He has literally changed my life. I was always sick with sinus infections but I have not had one since my operation in September. I have had two colds since my operation and they did not go into an infection! Hooray! I highly recommend Dr. Tessama as an ENT.
