For most of my life I have suffered with severe sinus infections and not breathing well. Sadly I had been to another surgeon that operated and it was worse than ever and leaving me with a poor quality of life. After several visits to Dr. Fakhri and sending me to other specialists to investigate other issues...migraine, immune, etc. He was correct in all of his theories, but it still did not tackle my anatomic issues. We operated today and for the first time I have been able to breathe! So happy!
