Patient Testimonial from K.M.The upper lip tie revision seemed quick for my daughter. The staff was extremely helpful. The doctor seemed confident in his work and gave me peace of mind. My daughter is now successfully breastfeeding without causing me pain. ~K.M.
Patient Testimonial from Emily MurphySince our lip tie revision procedure we have experienced improvement with proper latching while breastfeeding and less episodes of vomiting/spitting up after feedings. We are happy to say that breastfeeding is no longer painful. The healing time was very quick with no pain medications needed. I was able to nurse immediately after the procedure with no pain. ~Emily Murphy for Willow Murphy
Patient Testimonial from Ricky TrippBeing a professional singer, I spent many years struggling with severe sinusitis and frequent infections. I used to keep bottles of decongestant nasal spray in glove compartments and in my pocket at all times in order to breathe. At night, many sprays were needed to keep my airway open. Everything I tried failed, including the adhesive strips to hold the nose open, and even nasal inserts. After hearing about Dr. Stroud on the radio, I called the clinic and got balloon sinuplasty surgery. After Dr. Stroud's treatment, it has been a whole new world for me. I no longer need muliple bottles of decongestant nasal spray in order to breathe, nor do I suffer from the rebound that resulted. Nothing can describe the sense of freedom that comes from being able to breathe easily after years of struggle. Balloon sinuplasty is a real miracle because it works like no other treatment. And there is no one better than Dr. Stroud to perform the procedure. His knowledge of balloon sinuplasty is impressive. He and his staff are total professionals who put you immediately at ease. The procedure is simple and short, but the results will change your life. ~Ricky David Tripp
Patient Testimonial from D.C.We had a wonderful experience at Conway ENT Clinic. The nurses and front desk were very friendly and reassuring. Dr. Stroud had wonderful bedside manner, was very engaging and warm. He did a great job of listening to my concerns as a parent and was very informative about the corrective actions that needed to take place. Thank you Conway ENT.
Patient Testimonial AnonymousWe had a positive experience with Dr. Stroud. We were glad that he utilized the laser technique for our child's lip tie procedure. It was very quick and we felt there was minimal to no pain for our little one. Being able to feed immediately was amazing. Breastfeeding has been so much easier and pain free since the procedure. We cannot express enough gratitude for this service being provided. It has changed the experience with feeding our baby to being positive and enjoyable...that is priceless. ~Anonymous
