Dr. Wassmuth's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Wassmuth "Dr. Zachary Wassmuth, born and raised in Texas, earned his undergraduate degree from The University of Texas at Austin, subsequently earning his Medical Degree at The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. He completed his residency at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. continuing on to be Chief of Resident Education, authoring multiple research papers on sinusitis and obstructive sleep apnea. Dr. Wassmuth was honored to serve his country in Kuwait supporting Operation Enduring Freedom after the September 11th attacks. After moving back to Austin in 2003 and joining Capital Otolaryngology, he was one of the first physicians in Texas to adopt both minimally invasive Balloon Sinuplasty technology to treat chronic sinusitis as well as Inspire airway stimulation to treat sleep apnea. Awarded Top Doctor in Austin by his peers in 2015 and 2017, he participated in private research, lectured extensively and sought additional education allowing him to become Board Certified in Sleep Medicine. Dr. Wassmuth, a family man at heart, enjoys coaching his son and daughter's sports teams as well as participating in triathlon training himself. He's been known to be spotted on the golf course, enjoying Austin's beautiful sunshine. "

My 15 y/o son was having hearing problems and after discussion with the doctors here it was decided to put a tube in his ear and that would fix his problem. Guess what? It made it worse! Follow up visits end with guesses and no clear answers. Almost a year later the tube hasn't come out like they said it would and it's really hurting him and he says he really can't hear anything now - I call the office for an appointment only to learn they can't schedule an appointment because my account is in c

Fantastic office and doctor! He diagnosed the infection in my sinus after 2 other ENTs failed to do so and recommended surgery. Meanwhile, he had me take the correct medicine to help the infection. Surgery was painless and at follow-up he is taking extra precautions to make sure my infection is gone. Highly recommend him, especially since I have experience with 2 other ENT's in the area. He has been the best.

Dr. Wassmuth listened to my complaints and answered all my questions. He and his nurses took time to call and check on me after I saw him as a patient. Very good bedside manners, and he treated my sinus infection. I recommend Dr. Wassmuth to anyone who has chronic sinus issues, if you want a doctor who will treat you as a person not just another patient.

I had a sinus procedure. Billing caused a huge nightmare with my insurance. They billed 7x's the amt they are contracted to receive. Then continue to charge me everything I come in for insurance limits that I met, with the procedure performed in THEIR office. The billing staff is VERY RUDE and does not know the difference between co insurance and out of pocket. NEVER AGAIN! The doctor was so-so. Said I would be just fine in 24 hours. More like 2 weeks. This is a business, not patient centered.
