Dr Wyatt’s Testimonials
I am a lifelong sufferer of seasonal allergies. All my childhood photos show a kid with a red nose and puffy eyes, while the rest of the family looks fine. By the time I was in my twenties, I was up to four to six sinus infections a year, along with all the trappings: postnasal drainage; sore, congested throat; itchy eyes; and at least one blocked nostril at all times. Worst of all, it led me to lots of antibiotics, which were really hard on my stomach. I just plain didn’t feel well most of the time. I thought this was my lot in life, and something that would never improve. Never say never! By March 2008, it was time for a referral to a specialist.
In my initial examination, Dr. Wyatt explained to me that what I had were nasal polyps, and they could be surgically treated through endoscopic sinus surgery. Naturally the word “surgery” brings up concerns, but in my initial visit, Dr. Wyatt explained all the long-term benefits of the surgery, as well as the improvements that had been made in the same surgery in recent years. No longer do patients have the nose packing and bleeding that were part of this surgery in the past. In fact, I don’t even think of what I had as surgery. I think of it as what it was: an outpatient procedure. Best of all, while I still have allergies, I am now free of all the infections and misery that goes with them.
The staff set the date for the surgery then and there, and made all the arrangements. All I had to do was show up. My recovery was very fast. I was up and alert and sent home the same day of the surgery. And I used only a few doses of the pain medication. In a little over a week, I was back to my “new self” again. From that day on, things were different. My constant sinus infections and the drainage and pain all stopped. I have never again had excessive drainage as a symptom, even during the times I have seasonal allergies. I have had one mild sinus infection in the three years since my surgery. Thanks to Dr. Wyatt, and FESS, I can breathe easily, and I mean that literally. It has changed my life for the better.
When I first visited the Dallas Sinus Center, I had polyps in both sinuses, a sinus infection that had hung around for several months and a badly deviated septum. I had also been using Breath Right strips every night for the past 10 years to sleep.
Since my procedure, the sinus infection is gone and I no longer need the Breath Right strips. I can even smell the wild flowers across the street! I have to say I’m really, really pleased with the results.
The Dallas Sinus Center team did an awesome job:
- You addressed all of my concerns and questions prior to the procedure.
- The “What to Expect” handout was very informative and answered all of my post-procedure questions.
- Your “Do-Say” ratio was spot on –– I asked for a call back the day prior to the procedure and got one that evening.
- I received excellent care during my short stay in the medical facility.
- I knew what to expect and how I would feel for the week or two after the procedure.
Overall this was an extremely positive experience. I appreciate both the professionalism and the compassion I was shown throughout the process. I’ve recommended Dr. Wyatt and the Dallas Sinus Center to several friends and family members with similar issues.
I was constantly sick with colds and major sinus problems. I had sinus surgery in November 2003…I say I was roter rooterd out. 7 years later I am still feeling great…I can breath. He did a great job for me and if I had to have the surgery again I would want Dr. Wyatt to do it.
