Dr Frost did my tonsillectomy . I was age 55. He recognized my swollen tonsil was all tumor and got it all out encapsulated . He saved my life by being aware and diligent. I had to follow up with cancer treatment , but because he did a great job . I'm here to tell you about him .

Both my kids have had their tonsils taken out by Dr. Frost. Both had a good experience and have missed a lot less school days since. They were always getting sick! The office staff are all very caring and appointments are relatively easy to get. I had a few questions after one of my kids surgery and these were answered in a prompt manner.

I would tell others about Dr. Frost because he takes time to listen to the patients and is very good at what he does.

Experienced and competent. Recently performed in in office balloon sinuplasty with most excellent results. My sinuses have not felt this good in 40 years. No problems with insurance. Follow up was great. Nothing but praise for his training, experience, talents, communication, and availability. He is in the top tier of ENT specialists!

I was experiencing recurring sinus infections, and I was also prone to allergies which was compounding my problems. Dr. Frost suggested opening my sinus drainage points with surgery. I agreed with his prognosis, for two other Doctors have told me the same thing, but the surgery wasn't an option when I was under their care. Today I sleep better I still get a little neck pain, but with a little persuasion and irrigation my sinuses drain in minutes instead of hours. I couldn't be any happier.

I went to Dr. Frost in regards to my sinus disease, which I have had for a few years. After receiving antibiotics for several months with no improvement he recommended a balloon sinuplasty, which I had performed in the office under sedation. I was totally unaware as to what was going on and after just several weeks I am feeling SO much better.
