Amazing talents for people who need ENT help - She did rhinoplasty, compacted sinus and uvula - don't live with a c-pap machine! She can help

Dr. Tansek surgically removed a cancerous tumor on my thyroid as well as total thyroid removal. It's been almost 21 years since my surgery and I am still cancer free, not to mention the scar on my neck is almost completely unnoticeable! Thank you, Dr. Tansek!
