Doctor Gregory Bussell corrected a sinus condition for me that I had lived with for three years. I constantly had congestion and could not do strenuous activities without coughing. I had no sense of smell and my sense of taste was severely diminished. After three years of seeing doctors, I consulted Dr Bussell for a second opinion from an ENT. All of my problems were solved within four weeks. I have no congestion problems, my airways are clear, and my senses for smell and taste are back. I have already recommended Dr. Bussell to others with similar issues and will continue to do so. He is an excellent doctor and I am so glad that I found him when reaching for a second opinion!

Dr. Bussell is a rare combination of high skill and ability to communicate and ease patient concerns. I required surgery and I have to say the results are amazing due to him taking a little extra time that gave me better results and an easier recovery. He seems to really care and does not rush you. I recommend him without reservation, he is an outstanding ENT and surgeon.

Dr Gregory Bussell examined me on time, heard my concerns, scoped my larynx, diagnosed my vocal cord nodules (just like Adele!) & got me outta there in 45 minutes. Seriously, they were as efficient & informative as a veterinary practice. (That's what I do for a living.) I'll need to rest my voice more now, but at least I know what's going on. #Hoarse #NotHittingThoseHighNotes #TalkLess #TypeMore

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Bissell. He seems very adept in his practice. His ability to explain my what was going on in my ear made it clear he is great at what he does. Highly recommended.

Dr. Bussell is an excellent ENT physician. I've been a patient of his for about 3 years now. He is very caring and easy to talk to. Dr. Bussell will answer any questions you have and he is never in a hurry. What makes every visit so unforgettable is his socks - he wears the coolest socks I've ever seen!! Some have polka dots, stripes, stars, plaid, I would guess he has over 200 pairs. Sometimes when I'm having a procedure in his office I will look down at his socks and it will make me giggle it makes me forget about the procedure. I highly recommend Dr Bussell without any reservations.
