Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Khetarpal "Founded on a vision of excellence, we are deeply interested and committed to your welfare. Our approach is interactive and thoughtful. Each patient responds to a different style. Some come with pre-conceived ideas of what they would want from the visit whereas others are just looking for a solution to their problems or even a quick fix. While I try to keep my approach flexible, I also believe that information must be shared so that the encounter is meaningful for both of us. Sometimes during my exam, I may find other problems such as sleep apnea, or imbalance or a swelling in the neck or allergies, different from what you came in to see me. In keeping with our comprehensive approach to your ENT health I may recommend treatment or tests for those as well. Our goal is to attempt to give you the highest quality care we can by incorporating ideas of old and new as well as the latest technologies. Being a physician-surgeon is a privilege one that I treasure. "

Patient Comments (1)
in Brownsville, TX |
Very pleased with service. Fully informed about CT scan and about Dr Khetarpal's PIVA balloon sinuplasty. Excellent results from surgery without much pain. Had nasal congestion for about a week after surgery, expected from turbinate reduction. Would recommend Dr Khetarpal very highly. No more headaches, no more sinus pressure or breathing difficulty and my fatigue is all gone. I am working out a lot more now. Feel like a new man.
Thank you for sharing your experience with everyone.
