Outstanding professional. Best care ever.

Outstanding. I visit Dr. Close after a quack botched a first sinus surgery in a major way. The sinus surgery I had with Dr. Close was pain free, no complications & pain like I had with the first one by someone else. He really knows what he's doing.

Best doc

Yes. Dr. Close is a little arrogant and cocky but so what. He has every right to be bc he's that good. He's a confident doctor who knows what he is doing and you know you're in good hands. He removed 2 tumors on 2 separate occasions with no complications. He didn't take my insurance but I was happy to have found the best doctor and happily pay out of pocket.

I had to pay over $1200 for a 5 min visit they said the insurance will pay but did not. They should have the guts to let the patient know upfront what the charges could be. Very arrogant Doctor he talked about himself the whole time. Do not recommend.
