Dr Neilan did my Sinus procedure and deviated septum surgery. I was happy with the outcome and felt in safe hands with him. He explained what was wrong, what needed to be fixed and what the outcome should be. I followed all of my directions post surgery and have fully recovered with no pain or after effects. There was no fancy doctors speak, just plain simple explanation. The staff at the office are all friendly and helpful and the office is easy to get to, park and is bright and cheery.

I appreciate Dr. Neilan's honest communication and willingness to answer all questions. Although I know he has a busy schedule, I never feel rushed, but have a thorough exam. He also performed my septoplasty for a deviated septum. I can breathe more easily now and experience a better quality of sleep. I recommend this procedure to anyone who suffers from that condition. It'll change your life.

After years and years of frustration trying to convince my son’s doctors that he didn’t “just” have allergies, Dr. Neilan was able to tell me what exactly was going on with my son in about the time it would take me to get a coffee at Starbucks. He was that quick! But in no way did we feel rushed and he was able to tell me precisely what was going on and answered any questions. And he really put my nervous 8 year old boy at ease. If you’re looking for great ENT, Dr. Neilan is your answer.
