Balloon sinuplasty may be your best bet for treatment if you have chronic sinusitis and are ready to get rid of symptoms for good. It is a quick surgery that you can get done in the office at Southern Indiana ENT, and recovery can be easy with a return to work in two days.
The decision to get balloon sinuplasty can be easy, but deciding where to get it can be quite a challenge. With so many ear, nose, and throat doctors practicing in so many locations, how can you narrow your choices? Here are five ways to recognize a great facility for balloon sinuplasty.
- Everyone else loves it.
Ask for recommendations from your doctors, friends, family members, and coworkers to see if anyone knows of a good place to get balloon sinuplasty. You can also go online to read reviews written by balloon sinuplasty patients. Any good facility will have plenty of positive reviews to recommend it. Look for aspects such as satisfaction with the doctor, quality of follow-up care, and success with the procedure.
- You love the staff and building.
You should feel welcome whenever you come to the facility as the staff greet you. Receptionists, nurses, and support staff should be friendly and able to help with whatever you need. The facilities should be new and clean, giving you the impression that you are in top-notch facilities.
- It puts you first.
You are the patient, and you should be the top priority every time. You come first from the moment you first call (812) 376-3071 to ask for an appointment or for more information. Being put first includes being able to schedule appointments at times that are convenient to you, as well as getting help with tasks such as contacting insurance to find out how your coverage works for the procedure.
- You do not mind going.
This guideline is a little harder to explain. It depends on your gut reaction to the facility. If you cringe every time you need to go there, it is not the right place for you. It may be because it is too far away, parking is difficult, or the office is always running late. Or, you may not even know why
