Septoplasty Saved My Sleep (and Marriage)

“I came to Dr. Setzen with sleep apnea problems, sinus headaches, and a bit of a snoring problem (or so my wife tells me). Dr. Setzen performed a septoplasty and the results are life-changing; I never knew what it was like to truly breath. Now I sleep better, have more productive workouts (I’m a runner) and most importantly, my wife says I don’t snore! Thanks Dr. Setzen!”

Student Who Had Deviated Septum Fixed, Adenoids Removed, and Sinuses Cleaned Out

” For years i’ve had trouble breathing, always huffing and puffing as I played sports for my high school teams. In addition to my severe seasonal allergies, I was apparently suffering from a severely deviated septum which left no airway to breathe when the allergies kicked in. Dr. Setzen diagnosed this immediately as the issue when i complained about my breathing ability, and convinced me surgery was the way to go. It is safe to say that Dr. Setzen was clearly correct, as I have no regrets from the surgery at all. The entire procedure from start to finish was pretty seamless, and was well worth the comfort i now have. Dr. Setzen gave great advice, performed surgery well, and followed up with clean-ups and so on with diligence. Highly recommended!”

Sinus Problems

“Sinus problems had been the story of my life until I met Dr. Setzen . I had to have a surgery every four years from the time I was 18. Things changed dramatically from the moment I stepped into Dr. Setzen’s office. Yes I had one surgery which he performed immediately and no mention of surgeries since it has been almost ten years. I can now breathe, my speech is no longer nasal, I forgot I had sinus problems.As a bonus comes his lovely personality which makes it a pleasure to see him on my routine maintenance visits. No wonder Dr. Setzen is one of the top doctors in New York (and in my book).”

Dr. Setzen is a Fabulous Physician

“My son had several sports injuries to his nose.These injuries caused a blockage and scar tissue making it virtually impossible for my son to breathe through his nose.He developed a sinus condition, sleeping problems and loss of appetite. Cosmetically his nose was crooked. Dr. Setzen performed surgery to correct the medical and cosmetic problems.The surgery was successful and the after care was excellent. My son looks and feels great.”

A Model of What a Doctor Should Be

“Dr. Setzen is the third ENT that I went to. He did extensive sinus surgery with excellent success. He, in my opinion, is the model of what a doctor should be. He is extremely competent and he really cares about his patients. You actually feel like a human being when you speak with him. I recommend him without reservation as one of the best.”

Conservatively Aggressive Approach

“After visiting several other ENTs who gave up on helping me with exacerbated asthma caused by a chronic sinus condition, our pulmonologist recommended Dr. Setzen. Previously I had been hospitalize 4 times in a year for extended stays of 6 days or more. The minute I walked into his office with my medical history Dr. Setzen promised to work with me until I became a well man. He performed a surgery other doctors hadn’t even considered and I haven’t had an asthma attack since. He still sees me on a regular basis to make sure the surgery he did is maintained. He is a very knowledgable doctor with state of the art equipment in his office. He is always available for an emergency visit or consultation. He is kind and considerate and for me a real life saver.”
