"I sought Dr. Karen for help with ongoing sinus infections and related symptoms that had been ongoing for 2years. I was desperate for relief and decided to seek a specialty service that Dr. Karen could provide with Balloon Sinuplasty. The procedure itself was straightforward with simple pre-op and post-op instructions, same-day service, and a short recovery window at home, although, the most difficult task was not blowing your nose for 2-3days following the procedure. I found this procedure to be essentially pain-anxiety free, even days following and resumed most daily tasks within 48hours. The staff explained the procedure as it was happening and provided directions/recommendations when necessary. All-in-all this is the most simple procedure ever that produces results, now 2months post I have had NO sinus issues and was able to stop ALL OTC medications! I was desperate for relief, now LIVING my BEST life without sinus issues THANKS to Balloon Sinuplasty."
