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

I had very bad allergies and headache, my sinuses were inflame, and I couldn't sleep at night without Alfrin for years. I had balloon sinuplasty and septoplasty performed by Dr Anthis and could not be more happier with the results. I had minimal pain and no complications. Dr Anthis is a knowledgeable doctor and an amazing person. I would highly recommend him to everyone I know!

I had extensive sinus surgery performed by Dr. Anthis. I can now sleep through the night without waking up in the middle of the night breathing through my mouth. My wife says I snore less and make fewer noises when breathing. Breathing is much improved and a wonderful thing. Dr. Anthis' procedures following surgery prevented complications. If you are considering sinus surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Anthis.

My 21 year old daughter with giant tonsils and turbinates had a great experience with Dr. Anthis, his staff, and the Methodist hospital outpatient surgical team. He is very kind and patiently answered all our questions. The post op instructions were very clear. The Texas ENT group staff contacted us many times during the first two weeks following the surgery to check on my daughter and make sure she had several options for managing pain during her recovery. No complications.

Dr. Anthis diagnosed my nasal problem, performed nasal surgery, and now I can breath again! I had been suffering for I don't know how long, with nasal obstructions in the form of polyps. These were removed and some other work was performed during the surgery as well. I had no pain after surgery (which may or may not be common), and all of my check-ups were good. I would definitely recommend Dr. Anthis, and will continue to use him in the future, if need be.

I came in struggling with sinus infection. I always felt bad and had a hard time sleeping...bad quality of life. He suggested that the Balloon Sinuplasty would help me. The procedure was painless and very effective. I have my energy back and I am sleeping like a baby. My quality of life is much better. Thank you Dr. Anthis!

Dr. Anthis was born to work with kids and put parents at ease. My wife nearly cried out of joy the day of my 2 year old's tubes being put in, because he seems to know exactly what to say and to do to bring mommies down off the ledge of worry. Texas ENT's insurance pre-cert is also accurate, unlike the disasters you can have with other medical groups.
