If you want to wait for 3 weeks for an appointment only to come in and wait 2 hours past your appointment time before being seen then this is the place for you! This place and Koder are terrible and the only time you’ll get seen quickly is when they are under review. Been here twice and I will never be back.

I can't imagine not having Dr. Koder to address all of my complicated sinus issues. He is the best. His nurse, Melissa always call me back in a timely manner and seems to be able to answer all of my questions. And I have a lot of questions all the time. Their front office is more friendly than most office I go to so that's a plus.

Dr. Koder is everything we could ask for in a doctor. He gave us plenty of information answering questions we didn't even know we had. His bedside manner is phenomenal. You can tell he cares about each patient as well as his practice. Very professional, but caring. His expertise brought our daughter through her ear tubes/adenoid removal procedure quickly and without complication. Thank you, Dr. Koder.

Staff was amazing, Dr. Kosher was arrogant, condescending, and only wanted to talk about sinus surgery without explaining why. I would never go back.
