Dr. Stater was great in setting expectations. He was patient and explained everything. And, after surgery he was great in proactively calling to check in on me. A rare trait in doctors today. I am extremely confidant in the doctor and feel my life will be much better now that he has fixed my sinus condition. I could not be more thankful.

Dr Stater absolutly ROCKS! I have been suffering with a miserable stuffed nose for over 30 years, Ive Seen multiple ENT Docs who all stated there was nothing they could do. My first app with Dr Stater he looked in my nose with a camera and said, We can fix you! And he did!! On May 28th 2017 i had my surgery, a week later i got the tubes out, i could not believe how well i could breathe, Thank you seems so not enough for what he has given back to me. He changed my life! 10 Stars!!! Thank you Doc!

Best Dr ever! My husband Marcelo became very ill do to some wisdom teeth removed! Dr Stater was there for both surgeries and arrived everyday day at the hospital to check on my husband for the 3 weeks he was there! Not only that he would call us when he went home and made sure he was doing ok! He was the 24/7 I would recommend him immediately he is a very caring and honest Doctor! Thank you Dr Stater Marcelo and Rosie Chávez

This doctor saved my nose!!! I was bleeding so much due to a septoplasty and had to go to the ER twice. Dr Stater came in and was so comforting and and just simply amazing. He removed my splints, my stitches, and packing in my nose. He vacuumed out my nose and gently packed it. He was an Angel! Very kind, professional and handsome. I looked horrible so ugly covered in and blood swollen but regardless of how I looked he treated me so kindly. He's amazing!!!
