I Found Another Great Ear, Nose And Throat Doctor! I have Not been to an Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor in years and am so glad that I made an appointment last week to see this one. When I first arrived, I filled out their very important, lengthy questionnaire and then I was first seen by Brenda, the doctor's assistant. She listened to my concerns and then cleaned out all of the wax from my left ear. I also expressed concerns about my snoring problem and was given some other paperwork to fil

He performed a septoplasty and removed a retention cyst from a sinus on one side and polyps from the sinus on the other side. As he suggested I used saline spray religiously and thanks to his gel pack technique there was no bruising or swell. My boss & friends thought the surgery had been postponed because the result was so great. Also, like many who must repeat this, mine has lasted fo 20 years. He has a gift,

I recently had a septoplasty performed by Dr. Schenck. Not only did he do a FANTASTIC job with my surgery, but he was also incredible helpful in all of my post-surgery appointments. I used to snore and no longer do thanks to the great work of Dr. Schenck. I'm a singer and I've had many different ENTs in my life but pale in comparison to the care you will receive at Tower ENT and from Dr. Schenck.
