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
