Dr. Kridel and Dr. Caceras are perfectionists. They explained in detail my procedure.

He repaired a large septal perforation that nobody in my city would touch. Then he went to bat for me with my insurance company, which didn't want to reimburse me much, writing a great letter that I'm pretty sure will convince them otherwise.
