What People Say About Dr. David Conley, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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

Dr. Conley was very professional and put me at ease by answering all my questions and reassuring me that the surgery was going to be fine. The results were great . I can breath, smell, and sleep well again.

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.
