Dr. Riley performed my 1st Septoplasty, Sinus, and UPPP surgeries in April 2012. Afterward, I noticed my nasal breathing wasn't better. In July 2016, had a scope performed from a different ENT and it was completely clear that Dr. Riley performed a bad septoplasty. Also, while under Dr. Riley neglected to perform a needed Turbinate Reduction. I fully believe this was financially motivated since Dr. Riley was the surgeon and owned the surgery center. Now I will have a 2nd surgery to fix bad work!
