Dr. Bergstein, who has helped thousands of patients overcome their sinus problems is fortunate to be among the first in the area to offer a new breakthrough medical device for patient’s suffering from chronic sinusitis.

The spring-like PROPEL implant props open the ethmoid sinus to maintain the surgical opening, delivers an anti-inflammatory medication directly to the sinus lining, and then dissolves, avoiding the need for removal. For more information, please watch the video below.

Dr. Bergstein is our family ENT and recently performed surgery on my 4 year old daughter, who needed tubes in her ears and her adenoids removed. He was not only a very skilled doctor, but made himself very available to answer all of our questions and concerns - and never made us feel as if we were a bother. He was patient and helpful. His bedside manner and interpersonal style is very relaxed and personable, and we all feel he cares about our care and how we are doing in general. Dr. Bergstein helped make my daughter quite comfortable on the day of the surgery and she was not nervous in the least. He is a "human" doctor - who treats us with the respect we deserve as patients - and demonstrates a great deal of kindness and heart. We are truly happy to have Dr. Bergstein as our family ENT.
I have been going to this practice for years and have always felt-well treated. The doctors all take their time (that may be why they often run behind), and get the correct prognosis and remedy. On my last visit, I thought I had an ear ache, turns out it was TMJ. Dr. Bergstein gave me some corrective measures and my TMJ is better!
