Patient Comments (1)

I have had a lot of sinus problems throughout the years . Other doctors always give antibiotics and send me on my way . Dr. Howard is the only doctor who said he wanted to do a septoplasty and turbinate reduction and did an excellent job . I have never been able to breath this well in my life ....more
