Empty Nose Syndrome

Turbinate surgeries from ent doctors can cause Empty Nose Syndrome, which damages the nerves in your nose and makes you feel like you're suffocating. Think again before having the surgery.

Full Review Rating Breakdown

Excellent surgeon. Highly recommended.

Try to pay no mind to any negative reviews. I can't speak specifically to someone else's patient experience. However, despite their words, Dr. Apicella is a sturdy choice for your Ear, Nose and Throat needs. Having recently been seen and treated by Dr. Apicella, I can easily say I have not a single regret in going forward with my plans to have a septoplasty performed by her. From initial consultation to pre and post surgery care, the doctor and all of her terrific colleagues treated me with respect, dignity and sensitivity to my condition and needs. And not a bit of this review is exaggerated. My wish is that anyone considering her as their personal doctor will rest easy knowing they have found another good one.
