Dr Metson is the best nose surgeon . He is so knowledgeable and kind. I've suffered sinusitis and deviated septum for more than 20 years. Finally I decided to have the survey done. I found Dr Metson though this website .After surgery I didn't have any pain and no bruise. I was shocked what a great skill Dr. Metson has. I have to say what a life changing experience . I can breath though my mouth now. Never had to suffer from sinus infection and stuffed nose no more. I will highly recommandate him

My experience with Dr. Metson has been very positive. After rather intricate sinus surgery, I'm breathing and sleeping better than I have in over a decade. In addition, I no longer need over-the-counter or prescription medications. The surgery has been life changing.
