Great experience with Dr. Shields, have been unable to breathe thru nose for years and taking numerous meds. Now, after balloon procedure, I am able to breathe without all the meds. Great doctor with a great personality. Office staff very helpful with all my needs.

I am so pleased with the Balloon Sinuplasty surgery done by Dr. Shields. I had been so sick with a chronic sinus infection for a very long time, but since the surgery I've not had any sinus problems at all. It is wonderful !! Dr. Shields and his staff are EXCELLENT !

I suffered with chronic sinusitis for years. I was stuck in a cycle of antibiotics, steroid injections, nasal sprays, CT scans, and OTC remedies. I felt awful most of the time missing out on family activities and responsibilities. Sound familiar? RUN-do not walk, to Alabama ENT Specialists to Dr. Gordon Shields. He diagnosed the cause of my illness and corrected the problem within two weeks. I feel like a new person. Dr. and office staff are efficient, kind, attentive, and compassionate.
