I had a deviated septum from years ago and a large benign growth in my nose, and after reading the reviews of how painless surgery was with Dr. Medaris, decided he was the one! I was NOT disappointed! I had really no pain afterwards, just slight discomfort from the stents in my nose. After having those removed, its unbelievable how good I feel! Dr. Medaris was very informative, and very personable. I highly recommend him to anyone.

In October 2016 Dr. Medaris straightened my deviated septum and removed a large maxillary sinus cyst. There was next to no pain during recovery. He removed the cyst through the nostril even though a different surgeon had told me they didn't recommend removing the cyst because they would have to cut through the gums in my mouth to reach it. I can breath so well now and should have done this years ago. On top of being a great surgeon he is a really nice person!

Dr Medaris has treated me kindly, and taken care of my difficult sinus problems. He takes time to make sure I understand my condition and what surgery would involve. I am very pleased to have him a health care provider for me and my family.
