I love Dr. Postma! i have been seeing him for a paralyzed vocal cord for quite a while now. He just performed surgery on me Thursday, November 3, 2020. He dilated my esophagus, which he does about once a year. My case is so bad, I am going to ask him to do it more often. I am still having a great deal ofs post op pain. I have complete trust in Dr. Postma and his staff!

I just had my 6th surgery with Dr Postma. I have reoccurring HPV in my larynx that he has surgically removed. I have a very tight airway that other ENTs won’t go near but Dr Postma loves the challenge. I would never consider going anywhere else. He takes the time to understand your condition and provides the right treatment without wasting a lot of time on things that don’t work. I highly recommend.

Dr Postma and his staff were friendly, courteous, and extremely professional. I was amazed at how he took the time to thoroughly explain my procedure and answer all of mine and my husbands questions (in a way we understood!!). Also, his follow up after surgery has been fantastic. I am confident enough with what I’ve experienced to recommend him to anyone! I just cannot say enough good things! Thank you Dr Postma for giving me my speaking voice back - I’ll be singing in no time!!

Never met Dr. Postma but first encounters make a lot of difference. His receptionist gave me a very negative first encounter over the phone. I'm currently having some difficulty speaking. So of course I was going to come to him for my voice problem. The person I talked to named Stacy was very short with me because I was having a hard time answering her. I talked to her several times and each time, she was always the same. Very short and inconsiderate

Great! Very personable, knowledgeable, confident, and experienced. He listened to my concerns, answered all my questions, ordered the appropriate tests, completed the needed surgery in a timely fashion, and seems to have done excellent work since the problem has been corrected. His staff is efficient and friendly.

Bedside manner could definitely use some work. Visit was rushed and had little time to speak with him. I still have a lot of unanswered questions.
