Dr. Conley was very patient and took his time in explaining everything about my situation and what to expect. The outcome was truly remarkable and I have been able to return to a normal life of mobility and exercise.

I have been suffering for years with severe chronic sinus issues along with severe sleep apnea. I had been seeing another ENT and was very dissatisfied with the care I was getting. Also had health concerns with meds being prescribed and a surgery that was being recommended. I went to see Dr. Conley for a second opinion and the experience was night and day right from the start. He was extremely caring and listened well, spent time with me and truly understood my issues. The surgical approach he recommended was different from the other doctor and more realistic in terms of what expected outcomes. My surgery went smoothly and the quality of care at the time and Dr. Conley’s follow up has been outstanding. The follow up care (clear and easy instructions for me, reasonable medications, follow up visits, and ongoing monitoring of progress) has been way beyond expectations. I would trust Dr. Conley completely in treating other concerns and highly recommend him. His staff is excellent as well

I first met Dr. Conley to cure a staph infection, which he found when other doctors just threw antibiotics at me. He then discovered I had a polyp and blocked nasal passageways that he removed via surgery. Throughout the entire ordeal he was caring, professional and incredibly helpful. I cannot recommend him more highly. He is a great doctor and was instrumental in fixing my breathing issues.

From my very first visit through my post-operative care, Dr. Conley has been wonderful. He thoroughly explained all of my options, began with the least invasive options, and when they did not solve the problem and I chose surgery, provided a thorough and accurate explanation of what I would experience. His skill provided an end result that has enabled me to breathe better than I have breathed in years and corrected the dry mouth and snoring I was experiencing. He is caring and has a wonderful staff, too. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Conley is very caring and patient. He is extremely comforting and will take the time to answer and clarify anything you wish to know. He has great bedside manner and I was very confident in his ability to improve my sinus issues going into surgery, and post surgery reassured that for me.

I would highly recommended Dr. David Conley to family and friends. My two adult children have had surgery with Dr. Conley years ago and I had complete confidence in Dr. Conley to resolve my sinus issues.

I'd recommend Dr. Conley for sinus surgery. Large nasal polyp was removed and my deviated septum was corrected. Procedure went very smoothly and without any complications. Recovery was quick and I did not need to take any painkillers (although some were prescribed). Rather than trying to overmedicate me, his approach has been to try and help my sinuses heal and restore its natural defenses.

He is a very thoughtful and caring physician who truly cares about his patients and is not quick to do surgery because as with all surgery, there are risks and no guarantees that they will solve the problem. Rather he wants to make sure that all less invasive approaches are considered. I really appreciate that about him. He is also personable and energetic and makes me feel like he wants to connect with his patients

I felt competence everywhere! Dr Conley, and all the staff for that matter, were always friendly and took however much time was needed to answer my questions, etc. I never felt rushed. Several of my local doctors have attitude issues. Their staffs as well. I felt respected by Dr Conley.

Dr. Conley was utterly professional and kind. He was a fantastic listener and showed great empathy in helping me figure out my chronic sinus problems. He read the sinus CT for me and showed me how it factored into his treatment decision. Would recommend for anyone. Thank you, Dr. Conley.

Suffering an unending cough since Jan. 2012, Dr. Conley met with me to review a CTSinus of Dec. 2012. He said there was nothing remarkable, nothing he could offer, saw no reason from CTSinus image for my cough. In Jan. 2014 a Mayo Clinic physicin reviewed the same CT Sinus & immed. exclaimed this is not even subtle, this is not even subtle, I see what's wrong with you. A new CTSinus confirmed his opinion. Meds. prescribed to control the cough, then four hours of sinus surgery in April 2014.
