What People Say About Dr. Joel Anthis, MD

There greatest Dr. I have ever encountered, he went above and beyond in my time as his patient. I cannot say enough great things about he and his staff regarding professionalism, personal attention, they even knew me by name. He involved me throughout my care decision making process by clearly exposing pros and cons of each treatment. There is absolutely no question in my mind as to why he had been so successful.

My daughter suffered hearing loss after a tympanaplasty that was done. At the follow uo we waited 3 hours. NOT EXAGGERATING!! Only to fing iut it was not successful. I don't think he was qualified for this complex of a surgery. Instead of telling me that he saw $$ signs. Come to find out, there is a doctor in the same practice that specializes in this surgery. I also hate it when people hide behind religion.

A couple weeks ago I had endoscopic and septoplasty sinus surgery. Dr. Anthis was a wonderful surgeon and even prayed with us before my surgery. I have been very pleased with my recovery. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and takes time to answer questions.

I was highly impressed with my first visit to Dr. Anthis. The office staff were friendly and helpful, his nurse listened to me, and most important, Dr. Anthis listened to me. He didn't interrupt me, or downplay what I was saying, and he encouraged me to be actively involved and knowledgeable about my health and care.

Dr. Anthis was highly recommended to me from a coworker. Upon meeting Dr. Anthis I could see why, his personality is perfect for a provider of care, he spoke clear and engaging, the facts of my medical case was explained thoroughly. I did wait for a bit but after meeting Dr. Anthis it was clearly understood why waiting a few extra moments was necessary. Thank you

I booked an appointment at 11:15 by 12:15 I hadn't been called back I had a subsequent appointment so I asked how much longer, the receptionist didn't know. I cancelled my appointment and left. No respect for the patients time.

I had trouble with sinus infections and difficulty breathing through my nose at night. Dr. Anthis performed sinus surgery on me and now I wish I'd have done it sooner. I can breathe with ease now and feel like a brand new person.

Breathing well changes your life. It's unbelievable how well I feel after Dr. Anthis removed some pollips from my nose. The sensation is like having doubled the oxygen to my lungs. I have had one side of my nose blocked for many, many years and I was not conscious of that limitation. And the experience because I knew, during the process, Dr. Anthis and his team. They are really great. Professionally and personally. Always smiling and always serious. Friendly and efficiently supporting us. Thanks
