He told me of a treatment that would help with my breathing. The procedure is the Vivaer Nasal Remodeling Treatment. I had skin cancer on my nose. The after affects of the surgery left me with extra skin on the inside of my nose. I chose to have the treatment done on my next visit. He prescribed 2 nasal sprays for me as well. We will see how the treatment goes and, if it helps with my problem.

Once you finally get back in the back to see him it was okay. He scheduled me for a CT scan and gave me naproxen, nasocort and told me to use a saline rinse 2 times a day. Said was tonsils and sinuses were inflamed but no antibiotic for it. Both times we got there atleast 20 minutes before appt time and still waited over 30 mins past appt time before getting called back. No explanation at check-in that he was running behind.

He spent very little time and really did not do an exam at all. He barely looked at the ulcer I had had for almost 10 months at that time and then told me he could cut it out, adding, "I'm not trying to discourage you, but you will be in a lot of pain afterwards." He never mentioned the need for a biopsy or even the possibility of cancer. Well, here I am 2 months later finding out it is cancer and facing partial glossectomy with neck dissection in just a few days.
