Testimonials

For a few months, I had severe congestions and many various doctors/specialists were unable to diagnose what was the matter with me.  My family doctor prescribed antibiotics twice which did not help the nose situation.  I decided to see a nose specialist and selected Dr. Rheuark over 3 other doctors.  Dr. Rheuark is very knowledgeable and was able to diagnose my sickness exactly like it was described in the newest laryngologist book that was published three months ago (“Sinus Relief Now” by Jordan S. Josephson. M. D.).  His endoscopy was better than CT images on the pictures.  I ended up having multiple nose polyps removed through surgery which resolved my congestion matter.  Now three years after surgery, I feel great and like a new person. A month ago, I had an MRI of my head (for a different reason) and the results showed no polyps in my nose!

Beyond surgery, Dr. Rheuark recommended that I see an allergy doctor.  After a couple visits with the allergy doctor, various tests have shown what my allergies are.  Resolving the daily functions that cause the allergies have made the polyps not come back.  I am thankful to Dr. Rheuark for his expertise and caring services that he provided to resolve my congestion matter.

Our son was constantly sick, stuffy, and coughing. His ear infections were unrelenting. The runny nose and ear infections were keeping our boy from progressing in his speech therapy. Our experience with Dr. Rhueark was professional and immediately effective. Dr. Rheuark corrected the problem in one surgery and within one week our son is already making marked improvement with his speech. The office staff is considerate, compassionate and very understanding. And if that isn't enough, we have never waited for our appointment to see Dr. Rhueark. He is always on time, which is very important when you have a 5 year old boy.

Thank you to Julie at the front desk forfitting us in quickly.. We felt we were very well taken care of and you should be proud of your staff. Please pass on our thanks and gratitude.

Thanks again, and best wishes

Dr. Rheuark:

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for truly changing my life.  For years I suffered with an undiagnosed deviated septum and restricted breathing.  It led to increasing snoring and truly difficult sleeping for me (and my wife).  I came to see you and you recommended surgery to correct the problem with my septum and to perform a radio frequency procedure on my turbinates.   You indicated you thought it would make a big difference in my breathing and it did.   Immediately after the packing material was removed I felt a remarkable change.  That improvement continued for several weeks and I am now fully healed with completely free airways.  My snoring has stopped and I am sleeping through the night.  Even more importantly, my wife is sleeping through the night!

Thank you for making a truly incredible difference in my life.

Best,

Craig

I'm a middle aged surfer, longshoreman, ex commercial fisherman. Needless to say, I had significant closure of both ear canals due to bony growths.  I was just plodding along suffering year after year. The left ear had degraded to the point of being infected very often, both ears would hold water. I would try alcohol applications which were very painful. They burned and were a real drag.

As most surfers of my generation can tell you, I heard horror stories about surgeries that guys would go through to resolve their surfer's ear issues- all were frightening and very effective in keeping me away from surgery.

After many years of this, hardly surfing or swimming and always dreading the pain and hassle associated with wet ears, a friend went and had his ear canal repaired. I waited for word of his butchered experience. He shows up one day, tells me he got a referral through a good buddy to this office. He went on to say, that he not only had an easy and mostly pain free experience, he healed very fast and was in the water in about 5 weeks. Well, I had to admit, he was right there in the water, smiling.

I went into the office, scheduled the first surgery on my left ear (the worse one . I can't tell people enough how very non-invasive and quick healing the whole thing was.  Surgery for a couple of hours, feeling pretty normal a day or two later, surfing, swimming, free diving in about 6 weeks. I have not had an issue with that ear in 5 years. Just a few months ago, seeing opportunity in my schedule and having to admit that the right ear was acting up, I had that ear opened up with the same experience, same result, I was in Bali surfing just 5 weeks later. My advise to the water person who is hesitant is to just go for it. It's the best feeling in the world to just dive into the ocean, care free again.

Best Wishes,

Dr. Rheuark is wonderful!

After 30 years of sinus problems and four ineffective sinus surgeries by other doctors, finally someone who gets results and now I can really breathe!   I have a nose that works.  That may sound silly, but to me it's a big deal.

I've had sinus problems all my life - since I was a small child.  I didn't know the sinuses were swollen closed in many places.  Breaking my nose playing football didn't help. Over years I had allergy treatments, injections, medications, and four sinus surgeries.  They didn't work.  The best sinus surgery, until Dr. Rheuark, helped for 6 months.  I thought this is great.  I'm not kidding, five months of breathing, which was wonderful and then down hill, again.  I was ready to give up.  Why does this keep going wrong.  It turns out, you have to do more than fix the problem.  You also have to set the patient up to heal right and get the right medications to make sure it lasts.

I came to see Dr. Rheuark.  He looked, saw the problems, the scar tissue, the swelling, the frankly messed up bone and anatomy, and had me get a scan.  The medical imaging showed how bad things were and he recommended surgery.

Now add to this, my very bad breathing problems.  I have severe asthma– near lethal.  Not being able to breathe through my nose didn't help. I even had dental problems because of breathing through my mouth all the time.  The gums were red and swollen and bled.  This was trouble. And all damn inconvenient!

Rheuark did the surgery.  I have to tell you, for a few days, it's quite a post surgical headache.  It hurts. But this is skull surgery after all, and it is SO worth the effort.  It is wonderful!  I'd have the surgery every day for a year, if I could keep these results.  I. Can.  Breathe!  I can eat.  I can swallow.  I can sleep.  My wife can sleep because I'm not gasping for air.  My teeth and gums are better.The dentists says my tongue is not blue anymore!  I am healthier.  One of the big things to me, but just one of the details Rheuark made happen, is he put dissolving spacers or something like that, in place at the end of the surgery.  This kept things in the sinuses in place while I healed.  This made sure that all those surfaces and my messed up sinuses didn't heal together or cut off any areas where air needs to flow. He did the work, and set me up for success.

Now when he looks up in there he says I have wide open spaces.  He makes me laugh.  I have holes in my head.  Thank, God.  And I can breathe.  That's pretty big deal after decades.  In.  Out.  Air.
Through the nose.  Wow!

He told me what was going on every step of the way.  He helped me anticipate the problems.  He got me right medications.  He worked with the anesthesiologist because I'm a problem with some medications.  He even fixed my ears, but that's another story.

If you have sinus problem, or ear or throat problems, go see Rheuark. And if you have kids who face these problems, get them in to see him. Give them their childhood back.

I am a 77 year old female who had a severe chronic cough for at least 2 years. I saw two Pulmonary Specialists who prescribed several medicines, none of which offered much relief. One of the Specialists then suggested I see Dr. Rheuark. Dr. Rheuark discovered and removed nasal polyps and cleared a sinus infection and the coughing subsided and is now gone. I have a check up every six months and I feel fine.Dr. Rheuark seems to have gotten to the root of the problem and solved it.
