Everything was very clear right from the start so I was not surprised by anything. They knew what they were doing and it was a very pleasant experience. The surgery was very well done--as a patient who is very sensitive, I recovered very quickly and nicely with the most minimal pain I've ever experienced after a procedure.

Dr. Gupta and his team are Amazing and the service I received was excellent. Jennifer the CST was extremely helpful and made this process a lot easier than I expected. This has been my first experience working with an ENT doctor and it was well worth it. I have always had issues with my sinuses and breathing and for years I received different prescriptions and/or recommendations for allergy medications. I felt like most doctors just put a Band-Aid on my sinuses or blew them off as not a big deal. Well if you know like I know your sinuses are important and profoundly affect your quality of life. Dr. Gupta performed a balloon sinuplasty, septoplasty and a turbinate reduction and I can already feel the difference. I also appreciate how Dr. Gupta explains everything he does to you and for you and really gives patient centered care!

Dr Gupta saved my marriage! After years of not being able to sleep because of my husbands snoring, Dr Gupta recommended a nighttime dental device and problem solved. My daughter suffered for years with sore throats and strep. After having a tonsillectomy, another problem solved. Dr. Gupta spends time with you to resolve issues, you never feel like you've been rushed through the process. I highly recommend this practice.

He did an excellent job of informing me, making sure I was comfortable and answering all of my questions. I had a hard time with the pain as I am an adult who had to get a tonsillectomy, and he did everything to help me better manage the pain and ensure I was recovering the best way possible.

Dr. Gupta and staff did a great job diagnosing my issue (didn't even know I had a deviated septum). I underwent septoplasty back in August and my breathing is much better and I have much fewer complaints from the wife about my snoring.

I am very satisfied with the care I received at WAKE ENT. Normally when I visit a doctor's office I leave feeling that I did not explain my problem fully, which is why I appreciate the detailed history Jabria and Dr. Gupta took of my chief complaint (questions, surveys, examination, etc.). I also appreciated how simple the billing aspect of my treatment was due to the prompt quotes prior to the CT scan and surgery. The surgery itself went well for me, I had no nose pain after and I feel that my initial problems are resolved. My postop visit was also pleasant thanks to Jennifer removing my splints smoothly.

For most of my life I was unable to breathe through my nose. I always was a mouth breather and it made sports/conversation/sleeping difficult. Dr. Gupta performed a septoplasty and now I can breathe much better.
