After seeing another ear nose and throat specialist and regular MD. Dr. Rheney easily diagnosed my problem. Pulled out a glob of junk that wasn't visible to the naked eye. Relived me of vertigo I was experiencing, also inserted a tube in my ear while I was at the office. Great doctor and friendly staff!

Dr. Rheney: I want to thank you for doing such a good job operating on my sinus and removing my polyps, I have had almost no pain. You and your staff was very kind and thoughtful during the whole process. I believe I was lucky to get the best surgeon in this area, You was very good at explaining what was going to take place and I felt very comfortable. Thank you for doing such a great job and I would recommend you to anyone.
