I feel very lucky to be Dr. Ambrosio's patient! I underwent repair to my septum and enlargement of my sinus openings and nasal turbinates...game changer. For the first time in YEARS, I can breath fully through the left side of my nose, and the facial pain & sinus pressure I felt nearly daily is essentially gone at this point. I feel like I am in the greatest of hands. I had a lot of questions and Dr. A made himself very accessible via email, which I greatly appreciated. A true professional.

Dr. Ambrosio performed a septoplasty, turbinate reduction, and BMTT on me at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton on 4/20/17, and I'm so glad he was the doctor to perform the procedures! Dr. Ambrosio is educated, thorough, professional, and extremely personable. He informed me every step of the way what each phase would entail and what I should expect as well as always making sure my questions were answered. He made sure I was comfortable and informed. I recommend him to everyone who needs an ENT.

Dr. Ambrosio is a great surgeon! He is very knowledgable and he explains to you exactly what type of procedure you'll have done in detail so you can fully understand. He always made me feel comfortable. I have also worked by his side as his surgical tech and chose him to do my surgery. Anytime I ever had a question about my recovery I could contact him and he always responded in a timely manner. I have recommended him to my family members as well.

Dr. Ambrosio is knowledgeable, thorough, and has great compassion for his patients. He put emphasis on making me feel comfortable and i never felt rushed. He answered all my questions and made himself available to any future ones. Dr. Ambrosio is very professional and an excellent physician!
