I am submitting my review of Dr. Kathy Yu-Syken as she is an expert in her field. I have suffered sinus headaches, nausea, postnasal drip, and acid reflex over many years as a result of a severe sinus problem categorized as sinus disease. I have dealt with severe opacification of my frontal sinuses and other nasal blockage in other sinus cavities along with bad polyps which have affected my breathing in every day life. I have always been allergic to anesthesia. In all my prior surgical history, I would get so nauseated that I had to be returned back to the hospital for overnight stays for special nausea treatment. This allergic reaction to anesthesia has plagued me for over 40 years. As a result of my history of anesthesia problems, I have avoided more surgeries over many years. However, Dr. Yu-Syken has perfected the balloon sinuplasty surgery whereby she can do more complex sinus surgeries along with the balloon sinuplasty surgery to allow her patients to avoid hospital stays and not have to be put under anesthesia. Being placed under anesthesia always carries a risk. Dr. Yu-Syken can do these complex sinus surgeries in her office surgery operating room with special numbing procedures which is a blessing and is pain-free. The recovery is very fast and the progress in healing is absolutely fantastic. Dr. Yu-Syken uses the latest technology and her skills are incredible. I was so nervous about this operation. However, Dr. Yu-Syken makes it high priority that she and her staff always talk you through each step in her surgeries. Her compassion and her surgery style of telling you the progress during the surgery has a very calming and reassuring affect on her patients. This means so much to ease the anxiety of her patients. Dr. Yu-Syken is very positive and thorough and precise in her techniques. She strives for 110% satisfaction in her surgeries for her patients. I feel very blessed to have a ENT surgeon of such high quality in this area. Those of us who have had surgical work completed by Dr. Yu-Syken can attest to that. I am two weeks post surgery from a complicated sinus surgery and I am doing great and my breathing is great, no nausea, no postnasal drip, no headaches and no sinus pressure. Those of you who may be reading this review should be highly encouraged that we have Dr. Yu-Syken and her team to guide us through any sinus surgeries or concerns that you may have in this area. I highly recommend Dr. Yu-Syken. Her team is excellent, caring and so patient friendly to answer your questions and guide you through any concerns you have. I am so relieved at the success of my surgery and my quick recovery. Our good Lord has used Dr. Yu-Syken as a vessel of healing in her field as he has given her the wisdom and expertise to heal others. God bless you Dr. Yu-Syken and your wonderful staff. Getting a quality sinus surgery makes all the difference in improving your life and ability to cope with those debilitating issues on a daily basis. Her surgeon team and office staff are top-quality just like Dr. Yu-Syken. Sinus surgery is a delicate operation and strikes fear in so many patients. Dr. Yu-Syken‘s High level of expertise and skill and desire to help you get better will ease your anxieties and give you assurance of quality care when you are in her hands. Thank you so much Dr. Yu-Syken for what you have done for me.

My son has suffered for years. His symptoms became noticeable as a toddler and he is now 21 years old. We came to Dr. Yu feeling discouraged and with little hope my son would ever feel comfort. That day, Dr. Yu confidentially assured us she would not let him leave her care untreated, and actually seemed excited to be challenged. Amazingly, what other doctors could not diagnose or treat over the past 20 years, Dr. Yu cured after only a few appointments and an in-office procedure. My son is 100% cured!!! Dr. Yu, I want to thank you and your entire staff for the amazing care you gave to my son. His life was consumed by daily vomiting, vertigo, migraines, exhaustion, malnutrition...the list goes on. Now, he wakes up and lives a pain free, symptomless life! I cannot thank you enough!

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Yu and the entire team at Oceann ENT. They were able to fit me in to there busy schedule to treat me for an ear infection that was causing me immense pain. I will admit there was a little bit of pain but it was necessary to try to get the infection under control. At first i was seen by PA John and he did a great job and made the right decisions on when to guidance from Dr. Yu and she did an amazing job treating my ear and made me feel a lot more comfortable about the situation. She advised me to get a CT scan and her front office did a great job to get me an appointment in the area on the same day. I didn't eat before all of this and was a little exhausted so to top off my great experience they gave me some fruit and doughnuts while Dr. Yu reviewed my CT scan and this helped hold me over till i could go eat. I would highly recommend this to anyone who needs to see an ENT whether its an emergency or a routine visit. Thanks again to everyone at Oceann

John took great care of me during my first post-op visit while Dr. Kathy was away! John is very patient and listens carefully. John has a very calm and soothing demeanor which I appreciate. I’m confident to see him for treatment.

I have no words to describe what an amazing Doctor we met, Doctor Kathy Yu-syken! My daughter who is 15yrs was going through terrible sinus issues with everyday headaches for 7 months! We met with several doctors but as long as she took the antibiotics she was fine but the moment she stopped it would all come back. But it all changed when we met Doctor Kathy Yu-syken! She is an extraordinary amazing Doctor who will listen carefully to all your problems and suggest solutions which actually will do wonders. You can tell she cares deeply about her patients and is very passionate about her work. My daughter is totally feeling well under her care and I feel fortunate to have met such an amazing Doctor. My heartfelt thanks to Doctor Kathy Yu-syken for making my daughter feel better and helping her come out of her severe sinus issues. Thank you!!!

I was beyond miserable when I went to see Doctor Yu-Syken. In my first visit I learned so much, and she knew exactly what to do for me. I am not going to sugar coat the balloon process, it was not fun, but the pay-off was well worth it. While under her care, she was very informative about the process I was going through and how long it would take to recover, and she was spot on with the whole thing. I am so very thankful that I was sent to her by my primary doctor. She is a Rock Star of Ears, Nose, and Throat.
