Had sinus surgery last week and am feeling fantastic. Never realized that my breathing was so bad until I had this done. I am very happy that I finally did this and I had complete trust in Dr. Han. He's very good.

Excellent! Explained surgical procedure to my elderly parent in a way she would understand without insulting her intelligence. Very patient and kind. Also, he ran on time. Which is also a huge bonus. His office staff who schedules surgery is also amazing. Would definitely recommend.
