Total waste of $4,000 to address my snoring. Didn't do a thing and was told time after time by the nurse "just give it time" and after 6 months passed no improvements at all! I found out that I actually had an elongated soft palate so this procedure could not have possibly helped but Dr. Schwimmer opted to take the money instead of telling me the truth that it would not help.

It’s been several years since I had the turbinate reduction procedure done and I have to say dr. Schwimmer told me I probably wouldn’t get very good results because I had a deviated septum and a hole in my septum from 4- way nasal spray, but I was desperate and insisted! It changed my life immensely for the better! Highly recommend. Jim p.

This place is not at all what it promotes. I was told that the pillar procedure along with the turbinate reduction would reduce my snoring by...wait for it...90%! I totally understand that practicing medicine is just that: practice. But to go out on that limb and quote a 90% effective rate is a little more than practice. The verdict: WORSE! The cost: $4k! Now for the best part: The implants are coming out 9 months later. I have to go to Vanderbilt Medical Center and have another doctor remove.

How is this doctor getting 4 1/2 stars? My poor husband wanted this for me so bad because he was afraid I may stop breathing during my sleep. We showed up for our first office visit and made the biggest mistake by deciding to do the procedure on the spot. We were out of pocket 3 grand and NOTHING was fixed! When we questioned it, THEN they suggested the mouth piece. Why couldn't they do the mouth piece in the beginning, because 1 has nothing to do with the other. It's a scam altogether!

He was patient, calm and extremely informative. I'm a lousy patient and he handled my anxiety really well. Plus, the treatments were extremely effective.

The rudest Doctor I have ever come across. Completely money hungry. He was completely annoyed by every question I asked him and then left the room and had his incompetent employee come in to answer any questions I had. I received two different prices and explanations about insurance. I'm not sure what's going on in that office but I know it's shady.

My husband struggled with CPAP for years. He tried many, many different masks, and simply could not get a good night's rest. We were both miserable. A friend told us about Dr. Schwimmer and the Snoring Center and we are SO glad she did. A few (painless) procedures later, and we are both sleeping so much better! And Dr. Schwimmer was simply delightful. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Dr. Schwimmer was patient, informative, and clearly knows his stuff. His bedside manner was excellent. If having procedures can be pleasant, this is as close as it comes. I was back at work in just over an hour, and in the 3 weeks since my treatments, my wife says my snoring has decreased by over 50% - and getting better. I recommend Dr. Schwimmer and the Snoring Center to anyone!

Dr. Schwimmer is a fraud. Worst money I have spent. I reported him to my insurance company after reading other complaints.
