Dr. Amoils recently performed Balloon Sinusplasty in his office to relieve my chronic sinusitis. A catheter was inserted into my sinus passageways via my nostrils, then a balloon was inflated to open the passageways and then they were flushed. I took prescribed sedation medication prior to the procedure & it took less than an hour. Recovery was quick and painless. Thanks Dr. Amoils!

I would like to thank Dr. Amoils and staff. I have been having breathing problems for 3 years. I have gone to other ENT Dr.'s and no one has helped. When I finally went to Dr. Amoils office in Palmdale for the first time, I was greeted with a smile from the staff and I only waiting 3-5 minutes before they called me back. Right away Dr. Amoils sent me for a Ct Scan and found out the problems. With in in weeks I was going into surgery. He did a new state of the art balloon Sinuplasty, Turbin

Always a great experience going in to see Dr. Amoils! I wouldn't go to anyone else! He does a great job explaining to patients the diagnosis and their options. I have been seeing him for many years now (for multiple problems), but just recently underwent surgery with him. My surgery went so smoothly and I had such a painless recovery compared to other horror stories I've heard. He is an excellent doctor and very knowledgeable.

Dr. Amoils exceeded my expectations and is the best surgeon in correcting sinus issues. My Septoplasty with Latera implants was and is a success. My issues have all been corrected.

Came in to see ENT specialist Dr. Amoils for a chronic sore throat and raspy voice that hadn't gone away for about 5 months. Other Dr's couldn't give me a definite diagnosis or options for treatment that worked. Here I am a few months later back to NORMAL with no pain or raspy voice! He's a master at his profession, and I am forever grateful. The entire experience was a good one- from the staff to the pretty, cozy office. I recommend this Dr and staff 100++% to anyone!

Dr. Amoils and all of his staff were the best. When I was intially needing to be referred to an ent for a complicated sinus infection, they were able to accommodate me the very same day and I can't say enough about the excellent care. Dr amoils rocks and has the surgical hands of an artist. I can't thank them enough.

I suffered fifteen years with sometimes debilitating vertigo. Recently, I moved to SoCal. With that, comes new doctors. My new primary care was not familiar with BPPV, but knew who to send me to. Dr. Amoils, examined me and knew immediately what was going on. He treated me in the office and sent me home with specific instructions to continue on my own. Within two weeks, the vertigo was gone. I'm forever grateful! I can exercise again. I have energy I've not had in years!

Dr. Amoils and his staff are awesome! Before I went to my first appointment I did my own research and and can honestly say it was the best choice I made to see Dr. Amoils. Dr. A. is clearly extremely knowledgeable in his field, excellent bedside manner, and makes you feel comfortable from the first moment you meet him. He takes his time to explain whatever is going on, even showed me pictures and walked me through what we needed to do. I was beyond shocked when after my surgery he called me
