Testimonials

I have suffered from excruciating sinus pressure for 25 years. I went to several allergists, a neuro surgeon, my general practitioner and last year as a last resort, I visited a nose and throat specialist who curtly told me "you just might be one of those people who have facial pain." I simply gave up. Then last Friday I was mindlessly channel surfing after a chemo treatment and saw Dr. Honrubia on Houston Life I believe. I paused just long enough to hear "sinus" and what I heard next gave me hope again. I called and got a Monday appointment. They did a CT scan and clearly showed me a severely deviated septum, a bone spur in my sinus, and 100% blocked sinus passages. I begged for surgery that very week, and they went to work getting oncologist and primary physician approval, insurance authorization, and here I sit in awe that Dr. Palmer fixed me this morning. I want to thank the staff and Dr. Palmer for helping me so quickly. - LINDA HICKS PATIENT
I can't say enough about the staff here! They all care so much and go above and beyond to ensure that your experience is outstanding. I had the surgery and can breathe 10 times better than before! - LAURA R PATIENT
This was beyond an amazing experience for me. All of the staff is great and welcoming. My insurance does not cover the Balloon Sinuplasty as an in office procedure but they worked it out so I was able to do it at an outpatient facility. It's been a little over a month since the procedure and I am extremely satisfied. I feel fantastic and I can breathe! The doctors and staff make you feel so comfortable and do an excellent job explaining everything. I work in a PCP's office myself and would highly recommend this group to my patients. I am so thankful for all they have done!- LALLIE LEIGH LASATER PATIENT
