Your sinuses are hollow cavities that help found around the noses and eyes. Their walls are lined with mucus that helps filter and humidify our air. If this mucus does not drain properly, the sinuses can become blocked. This leads to problems such as sinus infections or other conditions.

“My patient care philosophy can be boiled down to this: Do the right thing for the patient, always. Sometimes that can mean staying late, working a patient in, spending extra time with a patient who needs more support, asking for help, saying "no" when a surgery or procedure is not in the best interest of the patient, or recognizing and validating a patient's emotional needs. Medicine has always been a calling for me, and the doctor-patient relationship is the best part of my job. Taking the best possible care of my patients is my number one priority.”
