in Point Pleasant, WV |
I would highly recommend Dr. K to anyone! Our son had nasal polyps/90% blockage, and Dr. Karanfilov did so well with the surgery that our son was breathing normally and without pain IMMEDIATELY after surgery!! There is not enough room here to state all the good things about Dr. Karanfilov, however I will say that, in my opinion, he is an EXPERT in the treatment of nasal polyps and in nasal surgery. (5 stars)
in Mount Vision, NY |
Had surgery on July 6 to remove nasal polyps. Surgery was on time and Dr Karanfilov explained the procedure, the outcome and what to do and expect when we got home. I had virtually no pain after surgery and very little discoloration and swelling. Wish I would have known how simple this would be a long time ago and I would have done it sooner. I had this done before and it was painful and the recovery time was a lot longer. I would highly recommend Dr Karanfilov if you are having any ENT problems

I'm 44. Bad ears as kid and adolescent. Recently had bad middle ear infection. Worse one in twenty years. He examined me, treated me, and listened to me. Has referred me to excellent Ontologist for hearing restoration surgery. Excellent Doctor in my opinion.

Excellent communication skills- excellent Doctor - saved my life- had a huge oral abscess back of my throat and tongue- I didn't think it was a big deal... He let me know how severe the infection was and that I needed to receive iv antibiotics in hospital!!! The abscess was very close to my brain and spine and the infection could become severe very quickly and travel to my blood if I did not get treatment- wow - I finally got the message so I stayed! Thank you Dr. K!!! ( The iv antib. Worked!
