What People Say About Dr. Paul Righi, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
Dr. Righi is such a kind and friendly doctor. I was nervous about having sinus surgery up until the day it was done. I had heard horrible reviews of having a septoplasty and was very very uneasy. He did an amazing job! Made me feel comfortable and even joked around and made that uneasiness go away. There was minimal pain. I was off the pain medication by the second day post op. By the sixth day, all it felt like was a minor cold with a runny nose. No pain. He is by far the best ENT I've ever met

i honestly didn't think he was all that wonderful.I have been suffering with a very uncomfortable problem for a long time that has,at times,driven me to despair.He basically told me that he has only ever seen one other person with my particular issue so I will just have to live with it.He put words in my mouth several times and I felt like he just was not listening to me.He got a lot wrong and would not give me time to explain so that he would understand.Don't go to him with uncommon issues!!!!!
