Helps Hopeless Case

Helps Hopeless Case

“I had been suffering from exacerbated asthma that hospitalized me for long periods of time on massive doses of steroids. The frequent cause of these asthma attacks was recurrent sinus infections. I had visited other doctors and none of them even tried to solve the problem and wouldn’t attempt to fix my deviated septum which was part of the problem causing the asthma. Then I read about Dr. Setzen in Top Doctors and thought I would try one more time. Upon our first meeting Dr. Setzen reviewed my records with me for about 45 minutes and assured me he could help. He operated successfully on the deviated septum and he cleaned out my sinus cavities including the sphenoid sinuses that are very close to the brain so other doctors won’t attempt this surgery. I have not had a sinus infection since the surgery. I see Doctor Setzen on a regular basis and he keeps my sinuses clear so I don’t have to worry about asthma caused by sinus infections. On top of that, he is caring and kind to his patients. In addition, his staff are the most helpful and courteous people you can encounter.”
