What Real Patients are Saying
I could never figure out what was causing my sinus pain until I met Dr. Thompson. Working with him and getting a ballon sinus dilation, he was able to diagnose and treat my problem.Christine
Greatly improved sense of taste and smell. Eliminated sinus issues in the morning. Couldn’t be happier with the results! Highly recommend it. In fact, my wife will be making an appointment.Brian Grant
