Went to see Dr. Archer due to chronic sinus condition. Seen several other ent drs. who could not diagnosis my problem. He just did a ct scan which didn't show anything and sent us out the door. He is not the one to go to if you have something out of the ordinary.

I went to doctor Archer for a particular reason which is not addressed specifically by most otolaryngologist to the degree that it is addressed by Dr. Archer and found him to be all that I had been told.

my baby went to dr. archer a couple of years ago and she is still sick with chronic sinusitis. He did nothing for her except give her a shove out of his office.
