Patient Comments (2)
in San Francisco, CA |
An excellent doctor (more than just an MD) and skilled surgeon. I cannot say enough good things about him, he truly saved my life.
in Corter Madera |
I had a nasal polyps in-office removal procedure due to chronic sinusitis at his clinic early 2016. I did the same procedure at Stanford many years go. When I compare the two, the outcome were practically incomparable. The one I did at Stanford, had to be repeated many times with not as much as successful and comfort compared with the one I did at his clinic.
