Ms. J.

Dr. Pesce is hands down the most attentive, thoughtful, caring doctor I've been treated by in Los Angeles. I'm not sure if she takes brilliant notes, or if her memory is just that good, but she has an incredible ability to remember even the smallest details you've told her. I highly recommend her. Also, the office staff here is exceptional. Kudos to this whole practice. Fantastic all around care is provided.

Dr Wang is great. She performed my turbinate surgery before I left on military assignment. She explained everything thoroughly and did a great job. It is barely 3 days after surgery and I feel great. Her staff was able to work with my insurance to get the procedure approved and scheduled within a week. A+++.

I got in touch with Dr Salvado after years of dealing with decreased airflow in my right nostril d/t a deviated septum and nasal valve collapse and turbinate hypertrophy. I'm very active with surfing and climbing, and lately I was noticing I was not getting enough air when I really needed it when paddling out in heavy waves or when climbing in tough situations. The Vivaer was truly a game-changer for me! Every day I'm so grateful for finally being able to breathe fully thru both sides of my nose. The procedure was done under local anasthesia in Dr Salvado's office and I went home right after. It took about 2-3 months to fully experience the amazing improvement, but every day since the surgery I was slowly getting better. Thank you so much!

Dr. Putnam is hands down the best! After a few failed attempts at self treatment using Web MD and anecdotal recommendations, and one negative experiences with an urgent care physician that felt more like a cattle call, I thought I was going to have to live with sinus pain and discomfort. One visit with Dr. Putnam and I am convinced that modern medicine is the way to go. She was professional and really smart, without a hint of arrogance. She immediately identified my problem, went over the possible treatment options thoroughly (and in plain English) and was patient with all of my cynical questions. I left with the impression that someone cared about healing me. Dr. Putnam is also an amazing surgeon and I feel like a new man thanks to her! No more reading internet horror stories about doctors and no more watching Dr. Oz. Getting professional medical intervention was worth every penny. If you have any ear, nose or throat problems, seek out Dr. Putnam. As far as the office staff, I didn't have any problems. Everyone was nice and professional during my visits and I received an adequate level of personal attention from the staff.

I had an in-office Balloon Sinuplasty procedure last week. The office put me at ease immediately. Dr. Behrad Aynehchi was so kind and patient. Always had time to answer any questions. You are awake during the procedure and I cannot tell you how comfortable Dr. Aynehchi and his staff made me feel. Explained everything and always willing to answer any questions even while working on me. I was able to drive home, followed their easy after procedure instructions and had no problem. I actually went to a party the following evening! I would say within about 4 days I was able to breathe and taste again, which I hadn't been able to do for almost one year! I highly recommend Dr. Aynehchi and his staff. My only regret... I wish I had done this a year ago!

I am very happy with my visit at Westside Sinus. Not only is their staff super helpful and attentive but their doctors are wonderful as well. I received the balloon sinuplasty procedure and it was done by Dr. Michelle Putnam. I have to say this procedure is a life changer! I am able to breathe freely again. I used to have trouble breathing through my nose on the daily, especially when I would workout or was active, as I am an athlete, and now after I've gotten the procedure, I no longer have that problem at all. Balloon sinuplasty is well worth it. I have recommended it to other people who have sinus issues like I once did. The best part is that I can return to my regular activities after 24 hours and I didn't feel any pain! Thank you, Dr. Putnam... you are the best!!!

Dr. Pesce is a terrific doctor. From her practice to her interpersonal skills, she is a true gem. She actually listens to you and works with you so she can properly diagnose the problem. In addition, I am VERY pleased with the results she provided from my procedure. I am able to breathe again, without any issues whatsoever. It's been years since I have been able to breathe out of my nose like a normal person. Overall, my visit was amazing and efficient and awesome results. That is what everyone should receive when visiting their doctor. The front desk staff is great as well. I highly recommend Dr. Pesce for anyone searching for sinus relief in Culver City.

Had the sinus balloon procedure done to open up my breathing pathways and finally undo my stubborn sinus infections and it's been perfect ever since. Dr. Aynehchi's work healed really fast and it's the best I've been breathing in years. His skill is only matched by his empathy and patience, which is a winning combination. 🙂

Dr. wang is life saver! She truly is an expert at what she does and I couldn't be any more thankful for her exceptional work. Not only is she very comforting and made me feel at ease, but she is extremelyknowledgeable. She was able to answer each and every one of my questions, which gave me the confidence in choosing her as my doctor. If you are having sinus issues are looking for an effective, lasting, and minimally invasive procedure that is not painful, definitely look into the balloon sinuplasty procedure at Website Sinus. They are experts in balloon sinuplasty and will get you the results you need. I highly recommend Westside Sinus if you are looking for reliable sinus it is treatment in Culver City.
