Maryville, TN |
He didn't solve my problem. After he did surgery and that didn't address problems I was having breathing during sleep I was referred on to a sleep specialist. Now I suspect that the sinus surgery was unnecessary. My first trip into his office following surgery I noticed they had a sign by the check-in desk disclosing that Dr Sexton had interest in the ENT surgery center where my operation was performed Hmmmmm.

First, he made me feel very much at ease and he was very knowledgable. Significantly, he doesn't use packing for septoplasty! You will find his mannerisms and courtesies to be superior. Doctor Sexton will give you all the time you need and will address all your questions and issues. Great job!
