New Orleans, LA |
I looked for a good ENT all over NOLA, when I moved here 10 years ago. Dr. Cecola has been very helpful in managing my chronic sinus problems and terrible nose bleeds. He and his office have always been friendly and caring with my issues. He is also willing to discuss the problems and possible solutions, rather than just running in and out of the room.

I have been a patient for 10+ years with the other Physician. Today I saw Dr. Cecola. This visit started out fine in the beginning but resulted in a camera being inserted through my nose to examine my throat. I had trouble breathing and started to gag. Dr. Cecola, showing no compassion had a tantrum, ranting he has done this procedure 1000's of times not 100's. Considering a formal complaint, but will never set foot in that office Again.
