Satisfied Patient

“I have been extremely impressed with the Modern Nose Clinic thus far.”

I am seeing Dr. Skarada and staff for allergy testing, potential sleep apnea and some sinus issues. The staff has been extremely professional throughout my experience thus far. They have made my appointment booking a breeze, send reminders of my appointments, figure out all of my insurance information letting me know what to expect prior to a consultation and of course are super friendly and fun to work with! Keep up the great work!
