Patient Comments (1)
in Hendersonville, NC |
I had been very sick with a bad sinus infection for over six months. I had been to other doctors and all the antibiotics they prescribed did no good. I had a CAT scan done which showed my left sinus was totally blocked. I was afraid I was going to have to have sinus surgery again for the eighth time. I made an appointment with Dr. Kosnik and he prescribed antibiotics to use in a sinus rinse directly up my nose. I used this and my sinus infection was cleared within one month.
