I came to see Dr. Karanfilov after having a previous failed sinus surgery. He performed my revision surgery. I wish I would have done my research before having my first surgery. This time I went to a fellowship trained ENT. He had an extra year of school in sinuses. Very happy with the staff and surgery scheduling. Highly recommend the office!

Dr. Boris spent a lot of time with me. He made sure to get every piece of information he needed from me to review my situation. He recommended things, told me some of the medications I was taking weren't necessary. So less things I need to take! He was very professional. All around really nice doctor. He was very knowledgeable. He definitely knows his scope of practice inside and out. I would recommend him to anyone who has similar issues.

Dr. K was very nice, thorough, and respectful. He helped my family and me come to decision about an experimental surgery by explaining all the facts, risks, and benefits associated since we had never heard of the surgery before. I would definitely recommend him to anyone of my family or friends.

Dr. Karanfilov identified a specific bacteria that was responsible for my chronic sinusitis for the past several years. We fought the infection for several months but finally beat it! I can breathe better than I have for years. The care I received was outstanding. He and his staff really cared about me and my case.

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.

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

Dr Karanfilov is the best doctor ever! Not only are his medical skills exceptional but he truly cares about his patients. You are never rushed during your appointment, he takes time to completely explain your medical situation. He goes the extra mile and then some. His office staff is wonderful!
