Spent more time filling out paperwork then being seen by the doctor. After suffering with nasal congestion for over a year here's what I got: My weight, pulse and blood pressure checked by a nurse. Then a visit from the doctor. He sprayed some afrin up my nose, took a look, and said surgery MAY help. The reason I'm upset: he didn't seem concerned about how I felt and didn't seem interested in helping me. I honestly felt like he didn't believe me. I would not recommend to anyone.

I was seen by Dr. Hopfenspirger at the Med Ctr on 111 Hundertmark in Chaska. I am giving him and his staff 5 stars. Everyone that I came in contact with was friendly and very helpful; from the receptionist (I regret I didn't get her name) to the nurse and doctor. All of my questions were answered. Dr Hopfenspirger took time to show me a diagram of the sinuses and nasal passages and explained the problem. I will certainly recommend him to others needing an ENT doctor.
