the report from the office has several errors in it to the point that i don't believe it is my file - the dates are all wrong and the biopsy has an illogical date of 2/11 - when i had the procedure done in April. impossible to reach someone for days to help me straighten this out. i think my insurance should know about this.

Not impressed with her. Three appointments and I feel she didn't take me seriously ~ would like to see different Dr in the practice but was told they don't like to do that. She is talking surgery and would like 2nd opinion but can find any other local ENT!

Total different diagnosis then 2 previous more experienced Doctors. Never took the bags of goo that had been collected and preserved to be analyzed for possible bacterial infection. Waited over an hour for the Doctor to show . Scary part is this Dr performing surgery.
