Scottsdale ENT doctor takes efficient care of patient
Member: Rose Burns
Provider: Valley ENT
Physician: Dr. Jordan S. Weiner
Location: Scottsdale, Ariz.
Angie's List Category: Ear/Nose/Throat Care
Description of experience: “Dr. Weiner checked on what I thought was a sinus infection.”
Comments: “He’s excellent, very factual and communicative, but has a kind and efficient manner. He ordered an MRI and diagnosed my perpetual dizziness, which turned out to be a pituitary tumor.
Due to the tumor, Burns has acromegaly, which causes her body to overproduce growth hormones. “I’m not big and tall like Andre the Giant because I didn’t have the tumor in adolescence,” Burns says. “But I’ve had symptoms like enlarged fingers and feet for years.”
"The tumor was removed through the nose and sinuses, so I went back to him six weeks after the surgery because I was having a lot of sinus issues. He went into my sinuses with an endoscope to check things out and said there was some irritation, but it wasn’t infected.
"He recommended I do nasal washing to get all of the post-surgery debris and blood washed out. The air is so dry here, that I’ll probably always do the washings.”
