First appointment. Friendly staff, warm, very helpful, good office environment, and I had no wait. Dr Backman was great to talk to, personable, quick witted, understood my concerns right away, reviewed my treatment history & details thoroughly, patiently. He explained the treatment plan very well, answered all my questions. His follow up, and the staff's, was excellent too. I highly recommend Dr. Backman.

This doctor may have saved my life when all the others (ENT, Primary, Cardiologist, etc) couldnt see past their own noses. I'ma 50 yo female w/50-69% blockage of my carotid artery. My labs all came back clean, super clean actually. No issues w/cholesterol, LDL, HDL, kidney or liver function. 2 ER trips and multiple specialists and they all missed even considering my carotid. And with a family history of stroke. WTH?! Backman is thorough, considerate, and professional. And a life saver!!!
