Filled out paperwork before the visit, on-line, and then more paperwork at the doctors office. After waiting for the consultation to see the doctor, I was told that I would not be seeing a doctor, but rather a medical practitioner. I expected appropriate testing and a thorough diagnosis, not the equivalent of a nurses aide to prescribe an R/X and then schedule a second appointment to see the doctor. Poor business practice. Patients should be advised if they are not going to be able to meet with a qualified physician.

My experience with the Sinuplasty, was well worth it all. Years of sinuses problems, was all my life pretty much was given medications to cover up the problem. Pressure coughing, bending over, congestion at night and sometimes durning the day, has been eliminated. And would definitely reconnomended it to anyone. Thank you, Paul Fulmer and your staff Darlissa White

This office is beautiful. It also is a one stop shop! I was tested for allergies, got the X-ray of my sinuses, and was diagnosed in ONE appointment. My procedure was life changing! No more pressure and headaches! The day of the procedure was also very easy and the recovery even easier! So happy with my results and this office! Highly recommend!! PS I never had to 'wait' either at my appointments! Great experience all around from doctors to office staff!
