He is very patient to go through all the tests on me. He is knowledgeable, kind, and confident about what he does. I had this sleep apnea problem for years without treatment, after surgery, it has gone now. I didn’t feel I had nose and throat problems before, I really can feel the difference. Thank you so much Dr Gheriani!

Dr. Gheriani performed a sinus surgery on me in May 2015. My first sinus surgery, performed by another surgeon, was not successful. Dr. Gheriani used a different technique and the surgery was ultimately successful. In the months of follow-up, Dr. Gheriani was and is extremely attentive, patient, and professional. Since the surgery, I haven’t had the sinus headaches, sinus and bronchial infections, and bronchitis that I usually suffer from for months, and the rather severe seasonal allergies I have had since childhood have been reduced to the point of wondering whether I still have allergies! No sneezing, no runny nose… nothing! I am so happy! I can breathe! Thank you Dr. Gheriani, for giving me full confidence in you. You are amazing! — Gale Leitch

I would like to take this opportunity to say what a wonderful experience it has been to have Dr. Gheriani as my ENT specialist. Without going into details, he was able to quickly confirm what I had thought was going on for months with a few tests. Initial antibiotic treatment hadn’t worked so it became clear I was a candidate for surgery. I had the day surgery within a few weeks of seeing him. Dr. Gheeriani’s follow up has been spectacular as has his advice and teaching around what clearly will be a life long process to keep my sinus’s healthy has been clear and concise. I would highly recommend Dr. Gheriani and appreciate all he has done and continues to do on a follow up basis. Frank Morgan.
