What Real Patients are Saying
Dr. Bouknight and her staff are so friendly. I really felt cared for. The procedure I had was something new to me, and they were with me every step of the way, and I’m here because of them.Ernest
After a number of years of sinus problems and three sinus surgeries, balloon sinus dilation opened my frontal sinuses better than ever before. I know my sinuses are draining much better than they have in a very long time. I felt very comfortable with the care given to me by Dr. Bouknight and her staff. She takes the time to explain any diagnosis and what needs to be done to relieve any symptoms. I would highly recommend this practice and procedure to anyone with sinus problems.Linda Craft
Dr. Bouknight is blessed with skill and compassion. She is always careful to ensure that I understand the issues attendant to my case, which has been, and continues to be superb.Connie B. Walters
What stands out the most is the disciplined approach taken to address the real issue, not just treating the symptoms. Sinus endoscopy, MRI identified the real issues. The time spent with me and my wife, explaining the conditions and possible treatments was excellent, very professional.Jaime A. Zuloaga, Jr.
