new pt appointment has now cost me over a grand. Arrived saw nurse, she sprayed a liquid in my nose. I had to ask what she was doing and why. I was told Dr Thaler wanted to look in my nose BUT was not told it would be billed as an outpatient OR surgery visit! Neither the nurse or Dr Thaler advised what the procedure was and possibility of side effects or insurance issues. Getting the run around from Dr Thaler's office and PennMed when I inquire and ask to appeal bill.

After having sinus surgery with a different ENT, I still could not breathe through my nose. I put off having a second surgery but was miserable with at least 5 sinus infections a year. Finally agreed to surgery with Dr. Thaler and woke up from surgery breathing through my nose. No packing, no bleeding! I rarely have any sinus issues anymore, but if I do, I can talk to Dr. Thaler or a resident at any time - even on Easter Sunday.

While a long road of visits to get the device, the clinical group is excellent! I can't wait until the device is activated. Success is very high based on the clinical studies, post studies & Penn's research.
