I took an elbow to the nose over 10 years ago back when I was in high school playing basketball and it closed off one of the airways in my nose. It was never anything debilitating but it was always something I noticed but eventually got used to. I finally decided to look into having it fixed as it seemed to be affecting my breathing and I went and saw Dr. Alvi. He was unbelievably friendly and was fantastic at explaining things to me in a way I could understand. He ended up performing a septoplasty on me to open up the airway and while I had an uncomfortable two weeks after the procedure others that told me about having it done made it sound like my experience was a cakewalk. I'm a year past the surgery now and I can't believe I went so long without having this done, I can breath immensely better now. If you are looking for a good ENT in the area you absolutely should make an appointment with Dr. Alvi.
