"Dr. Raj Terkonda and his staff gave us a perfect service and outcome for a deviated septum. The doctor was very thorough in diagnosis, treatment plan, and instructions. The office staff did all of the work to ensure that our procedure and pre-ops were pre-authorized by Aetna and scheduled quickly. We wished we hadn't deferred this procedure for so long, but waiting for the right doctor and team is everything!"- S.C. / Google / Apr 07, 2023
"Dr TerKonda went above and beyond with my surgery to repair a deviated septum, and I can breathe much more clearly now. The admin side of the office has a few things to sort out with duplicate billing and wait communication issues, but I highly recommend the medical care/treatment."- I.T. / Google / Mar 20, 2023
"Dr. TerKonda fixed my deviated septum and excess tissue. Surgery was a success and he and his team are very caring every step of the way."- K. / Google / Dec 22, 2022
"I just had a septoplasty and nasal valve repair. I appreciate that Dr. Terkonda took his time to make sure that I was safe to have surgery. The medication he prescribed for the nasal drip was better than four years of receiving allergy shots. Nasal drip has gotten far better postop, but every now and then I still use the medication. I cannot believe this is how everyone else breathes and smells! Are you kidding me? Absolutely amazing."- H.L. / Google / Sep 16, 2022
