I absolutely recommend Dr. Ito on every single count. 1. Fantastic surgeon! 2. Very friendly/Easy to talk to. 3. Kept me informed about everything with my current and possible future care. 4. Showed he cared about my full recovery by adding a follow-up when full recovery wasn't evident at normal final follow up. I have been a mouth-breather forever. I simply couldn't breathe out of my nose well. Nothing helped and as time passed my breathing slowly went from difficult to "feels like I'm trying to breathe through a straw at a Boba Tea shop". Plus, I could never smell well and this too was getting worse. After seeing Dr. Ito, he set me up for a septoplasty/sinuplasty very quickly. The surgery was my first major surgery under anesthesia and my first major surgical recovery. It was no big deal. Healing was quick and clean. The second Dr. Ito removed my stents, I could breathe! He honestly changed my life. There has been such a benefit. If you need an ENT doctor/surgeon go to him!

I had NO sense of smell for almost 7 years! Most people don't realize that your sense smell is over 80% of what you taste. I love to cook and it was incredibly depressing not to be able to taste what I made. I had another surgeon perform 3, very painful, sinus surgeries prior to meeting Dr. Ito. After I was referred to Dr. Ito, he formulated a treatment plan and performed surgery that was an immediate success! My sense of smell was restored when I left day surgery, that was almost a year ago. I have been able to smell (without being on Prednisone) for an entire year. The treatment plan that I follow, keeps the disease at bay. I would shout his name off of rooftops if that would help others who are plagued with loss of smell, it is a huge loss and sadly most people fluff it off. Dr. Ito is a wonderful, skilled, caring doctor and he listens to his patients.

My Sinus infection started from about 3 years ago, those 3 years was a literal hell, I had complete loss of smell and loss of taste, I couldn't ever taste the food I was eating. Everyday I would wake up with massive fatigues, I'm not exaggerating a single bit when I say the fatigue and feeling like crap was far worse than a hungover; and that was everyday. My eyes were burning ALL the time like if I had onions next to them 24/7. I had a lot of sinus pressure and nasal congestion which was always stuffed with mucus disabling my ability to breathe thru my nose. I had every sympton at it's most severe state. All that messed up with me emotionally, I started to get depressed, it affected my quality of life completely. Then I had surgery with Dr Ito and it was like a miracle, I was completely better after surgery everything had gone away, I can finally breathe correctly, and I've gotten my life back. He is the absolute best doctor ever!!

I have had serious sinus problems and I have seen a few sinus doctors. They told me there was nothing they could do for me because my previous doctor performed surgery on my sinus and removed too much tissue. My family Doctor gave me antibiotic for one week, but it did not help me. I saw Dr. Ito and he helped me a lot. My sinus is getting much better now. I would like to say thank you to him, you really helped my sinus problem!
