Nasal Congestion/ Sinus Infections / significant Nose Bleeds cured by surgery

“Dr. Setzen performed surgery for the aforementioned health issues that I was dealing with. He has the best bedside manner, and I believe he is in the best in his field. Not only was I totally cured, but he in fact most likely saved my life due to Nose Bleed issues. He is great and I highly recommend him to anyone with these types of issues.”

“I work and am friendly with a number of physicians. They all recommend Dr. Setzen for ENT, and when they need an ENT, they use him. What better recommendation? But from the non-professional point of view– Dr. Setzen makes you feel like you are the most important patient he has. You have his full attention for as much time as you need.”

Avoiding surgery

“I came to Dr. Setzen over a decade ago with another ENT specialist having recommended surgery. Dr. Setzen instead recommended working with an allergist and regular checkups and treatment from him. I did not have surgery and improved dramatically with Dr. Setzen’s care. He helped me end a cycle of sinus infections; I haven’t had one since I started working with him. In short, I highly recommend him!”

“Dr. Setzen is a compassionate doctor and an excellent diagnostician and surgeon. He listened to my concerns and took as much time as I needed to thoroughly discuss the procedures I needed to have done. After performing extensive surgery on my polyps, my sinuses, and my deviated septum, Dr. Setzen gave me back the ability to breathe through my nose again. It is truly life-changing for me. I am extremely happy with the results. His staff was very kind and it was very easy to get convenient follow-up appointments at his office. I would highly recommend Dr. Setzen!”

Dr. Setzen – a review and thank you

“Dr. Setzen was highly recommended to me by my personal physician to address my chronic sinusitis and mouth and nose breathing conditions. I had nasal polyps, swollen turbinates, and a severely deviated septum which he corrected through a successful surgery in 2000. His enthusiastic, upbeat attention to my problem, state of the art equipment and talent, and a terrific office staff and process made the whole experience worthwhile with the successful result of restoring my free breathing and quality of life. Years later, I began to develop age related (family history) allergies and sensitivities, resulting in allergic rhinitis, new polyps, and swollen turbinates. In 2010, I opted for Dr. Setzen to surgically address these conditions and simultaneously straighten my crooked nose with rhinoplasty surgery. It turned out terrific with no complications. He has been my otolaryngologist for over 16 years and I am very grateful to be in his care. I rely on him for care of my throat, ears and nose and addressing my age and genetic related conditions that emerge while I continue to enjoy a very good quality of life. Dr Setzen is a wonderful, talented and dedicated physician and surgeon, a recognized leader in his field, who loves his work and loves to do it well. I highly recommend him.”

Great physician great results

“As a fellow physician I have put of my health for far longer than I should have. Dr Setzen was extremely helpful in reducing my symptoms of constant drainage and sneezing. I can now breath through my nose, my drainage problems no longer cause me to be short of breath and I am now able to do more physical activity than ever before, and I no longer get headaches due to my headaches. I regret putting off my health for so long but I am beyond grateful I chose Dr. Setzen for my surgery.”

“For years I had severe sinus infections and was in constant pain. about 15 years ago I was referred to Dr. Setzen and he recommended sinus surgery after a couple of treatments. The surgery was a complete success. I get check ups regularly and all is well. there was no scarring or black and blue and best of all no more pain and infections.”

I can breath 10 times better

“Before I had the surgery on my deviated septum done I could breath but not as good. I was always stuffy and blowing my nose. Since I had my surgery on my deviated septum I can breath 10x better then I did before. I suggest to patients that need to get it done it was worth it. Dr. Setzen did a really excellent job on it and I can’t complain. I hope this will help a lot of people to get it done. Thank You”

Balloon Sinus Dilation

“After suffering nasal congestion, ear stuffiness and pain and sinus headaches for several years, I decided I needed to do something about it. I remembered Dr. Setzen who had removed my son’s tonsils some years earlier and promptly made an appointment. At my initial examination, he discovered how closed up my nasal passages had become and proceeded to explain a procedure he could perform to open them up. As it could be done in office and with no down time, I was very interested. The following week I returned to his office for my balloon sinus dilation which took about one hour. My nose was anesthetized and I was comfortable throughout the procedure. That evening, I didn’t even need Tylenol and the next morning I awoke without a sinus headache for the first time in years!! I have felt so much better ever since and I’m so glad I did it. Dr. Setzen called me at home to see how I was doing and I had several follow up visits to check the healing process.”
