"Well, it certainly beats having headaches every single day. Not only do my eyes feel less pressure but my nose is more open too.

This is a quote from G.N. who was diagnosed with a balance disorder. Initially, G.N. was very resistant to using any assistant device while walking. G.N. wanted to share a message with anyone who has balance trouble and is considering using a walker. "There is absolutely no reason to be ashamed of using a walker. I would much rather a walker than wheelchair. If you are or anyone you know is struggling with balance issues, guide them towards a walker. Dr. Gergits and his team have been very knowledgeable and helpful during this process."

Charles had tried to treat his sinus problems with many different medications such as anti-biotics and over-the-counter meds. Dr, Gergits spoke with Charles to discuss other options to relieve and help improve his sinus troubles. Charles had a right side turbinate reduction in September of 2015. In his 6 month follow up appointment, March 2016, Charles stated, "My breathing out of the right side of my nose has improved immensely. I still have some allergy issues but it is noticeably better." Before this procedure, Charles scored 38 out of 40 on his Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation (NOSE). After the procedure, his score reduced drastically scoring only 9 out 40. "I could not believe my results. What an improvement!" 

Then on June 30th, 2016 Charles came in for his next procedure, Balloon Sinuplasty. In his 11 day follow-up appointment on July 11th, 2016 Charles stated, "I felt instant relief and could immediately breathe better. I have not had any sinus headaches since the surgery and my drainage has improved a lot. This procedure has been a 180 degree turn-around for me. I feel better every day. I have not had any side effects or after effects. I would recommend Dr. Gergits and this procedure to anyone struggling with sinus problems. The healing process was amazing! I only had a little bit of discomfort the next day but I did not need to take any medication. The process was very smooth!"

 "I tried using the CPAP machine but still had side effects.  I had to wake up multiple times a night because of "dry mouth" and blockage.  I would often not use the machine those nights.

I then came back to the office to see what other options were available to me.  Dr. Gergits recommended a turbinate reduction.  So, I had this procedure done and I have not looked back since.  My sleep has improved greater than 50%, at least.  I can use my CPAP machine all night long now with no side effects.

I would recommend this procedure to others who were in a similar situation as me.  I had no idea this existed.  I knew a friend who had nose surgery but did not have any luck in resolving his problems.  This procedure was fast with very little recovery time.  The procedure was great and it worked. I am thrilled!"

 "My 3 year old son Jaxson was seen in the clinic for the first time yesterday. The office staff couldn't have been more patient and personable. The nursing staff treated Jaxson like one of their own and put him at ease immediately. We saw the NP, Verona Roberts and absolutely loved her. She was so gentle and understood the discomfort Jaxson had from a double ear infection. We met Dr. Gergits (briefly after our visit with Verona) and he was very outgoing and friendly. From this point forward, I will highly recommend NEENT to family and friends and will continue to bring Jaxson to their clinic for exceptional care!"

 "I had allergy testing, hearing testing, and surgery at Northeast Ear, Nose, and Throat Associates, Inc.  I had a really good experience with all of their staff.  I would recommend their services to all my friends and family.  Verona ROCKS!"

 “I came into Dr. Gergits office in 2014 after suffering for years with sinus infections, headaches, and pain and pressure under my eyes.  I tried numerous over the counter medications but they did not work.  After Dr. Gergits examined me, he explained a procedure he does in-office called Balloon Sinuplasty, which he said was a quick and easy way to relieve sinus pressure.  I scheduled my appointment and am so thankful I did.

After the procedure I was absolutely amazed to feel the instant relief.  I had no pain during or after the procedure.  I was back to my normal activities in just two days.  Since my procedure, I have not had any sinus infections. 

Dr. Gergits has truly made my life better.  I feel better and breathe better.  My entire family comes to Dr. Gergits and I would recommend him to anyone.  If you or someone you know is struggling with sinus problems, you need to have them stop by and talk with their trained staff.  There is nothing to it.”

 “I just wanted to take the time to compliment the staff and services I received in the help with my daughter, Lilian Croman.

Cathy at central scheduling was so understanding and helpful of my situation.  She took the time and effort to help me schedule the sleep study my daughter needed and was so nice every time I spoke with her.

Mark, who conducted the sleep study, was amazing with my daughter.  He was so calm and understanding of her needs, which made me relax a little more.  He definitely has a love for what he does, which makes him a wonderful asset to your hospital!  I'm also grateful for him taking the time to do the study on a Saturday night, which was so much easier than doing it during the week with a 2 year old with working and daycare all week long.

A big Thank You goes out to Dr. Gergits in Bloomsburg for taking the time out of his vacation to translate her sleep study and to the staff to get the paperwork to the pediatrician and the CHOP facility.  This showed major compassion to my situation.

Another big thank you to the nurse at Dr. Gergits’ office who inadvertently had some frustration taken out on her.  It's been a long road to finally get my daughter's surgery scheduled and I'm thankful for her handling my frustration with grace and compassion.

You have a wonderful staff and I'm happy I had the chance to work with them, and would recommend your services to everyone I know.”
