Although my initial consultation was very informative and well conducted by a APN, I was very disappointed in the lack of response to a problem I developed. After starting 4 new meds, I developed vertigo. Called the office for assistance and never received a return phone call.

Dr. Tamez performed Sinus and Nose surgery with GREAT RESULTS. I'm 67 years old and I've had allergies since the age of 3. My allergies got worse with time, ended up in St David's ER. After 15 hrs, & 41/2 hrs of steroids, then dismissed me with a bunch of meds & a referral to Dr.Tamez. He ordered XRAYS & MRI and did a thorough exam. Outcome; After the 2nd week of the surgery I was able to breathe deeply and comfortably thorough my nose without any issues. I never breathed like that before!

I can’t express how much relief and knowledge I walked out with after my FIRST visit. I was so happy to know that my initial thought wasn’t the issue but something else and I was able to breathe fully for the first time in 38 years - my entire lifetime. The science behind and seeing firsthand through scope, I understood my issue and what can be done! I’m so grateful!
