Thanks for the warning , this guy had it done for the 3rd time without consent and the ENT botched the job and this is a quote :

On March 3rd I saw the ENT and a terrible thing happened. Right there in the office without really me giving my consent he performed a third turbinate reduction. I was very unsure about it given that I had had it done twice in the past but he assured me it was safe. He was very aggressive and during the procedure burned a hole right though the musosa in my left nostril. In the end the procedure should have never been done and has left me with a terrible condition called Empty Nose Syndrome.
