I had septoplasty done with Dr. Requena in August this year and I just wanted to say this has been an exceptional experience!! Dr. Requena is a wonderful doctor with equally professional and supportive team of nurses who all share excellent work ethics. Everyone on his team made me feel comfortable and safe. Although I heard many horror stories from people who had this procedure done in the past, I, personally, did not experience any difficulties at all. My surgery went off without a hitch. I ha

My first appointment with Dr. Requena was on 02nd December 2016. Although the issues involved with my hearing could not instantly be diagnosed, Dr. Requena patiently and comprehensively, in layman language, explained the processes, and the prospective procedures and testing which would be employed, enabling him to ultimately provide a diagnosis. Dr. Requena’s nurse was competent and assuring. The doctor of audiology, who also examined me, was comprehensively professional.
