Dr. Haunss is an excellent ENT. She is great at communicating all aspects of your situation. I have been her patient for about 10 years, and had 2 sinus procedures, the second just last week at St. Francis Hospital. Procedure was clearly explained, and went smoothly, with no problems. I highly recommend Dr. Haunss.

Dr. Haunss has been treating myself and my family for many years including my son since he was 3 years old, he's now 21 and continues to see Dr. Haunss whenever the need arises. She is compassionate, caring and listens to her patients. She is very clear in explaining any issues or questions that may arise. I wish there were more doctors like her!

Dr Haunss-Sapinski is wonderful. She has the best bedside manner and is extremely gentle during the examination. I was very anxious about my appointment and the minute she came into the room, she put me at ease & I knew I was in great hands with her as my doctor. And I can tell she is great with children & if ever needed, I would be very comfortable with her treating my child too. I highly recommend her.
