I had a wonderful experience with Dr. ERSTINE. He treated me for a deviated septum & other related issues & I had great success. He was very professional & would spend as much time with me as was needed to answer all my questions & concerns. I was very sad, indeed, when he made the difficult decision to move to Las Cruces, NM to continue his medical career. Our loss was certainly their gain. I wish him all the best in his new practice. I will miss his staff & his nurse very much, too.
