The Woodlands, TX |
Very Knowledgable, great bedside manner.
in The Woodlands, TX |
I have been a patient of Dr. Ryan Neilan for the past year for sinusitis and allergies and after suffering for a long time with chronic sinus infection I finally decided to do the sinus surgery and I couldn't be more happy with the results. I can finally breath again. Dr. Ryan Neilan is a excellent surgeon very friendly, very knowledgeable and very professional. Thank you Dr. Neilan for the excellent care I have received from you and your very friendly staff.

Dr. Neilan is a nice guy when things go well, but if there are complications, he hides. I had several issues including pronounced hearing loss, severe pain and bleeding following placement of ear tubes, yet he did not return phone calls nor work me in to his appointment schedule when requested. I saw him a week after surgery, and when asked why I still couldn't hear and why my ear was bleeding, he just shrugged his shoulders and said, I don't know. I will not return.

Dr. Neilan did a great job in the correct diagnosis, timely treatment and surgical correction of all of the issues I came to him with. His bed side manor is superb and never seemed as though he was rushed when I was in his office for appointments. His resume is very impressive and his skill as an MD and surgeon far surpass that. I would highly recommend him to all of my family and friends. Thanks Dr. Neilan great job! You know you can trust a man who wears a nice set of cowboy boots to the OR!

Awesome. Dr. Neilan quickly found my problem, and developed a treatment plan that is working very well. He is the first of 5 Doctors that actually treated my problem, not just the symptoms
in Woodlands, TX |
Dr Neilan is a confident, knowledgeable and very approachable doctor. Having a doctor calling you personally after surgery is not common and I really appreciated the differentiated approach. I'd highly recommend Dr. Neilan to family and friends.
