Snoring and Sleep Apnea - New Hartford, NY

I have been a lifetime snorer. It was embarassing and inconvenient. I finally decided to do something about it and made an appointment with Doctor Falk. He suspected Sleep Apnea.The Sleep Study showed that I have Sleep Apnea. CPAP was not an option for me. I can not tolerate a mask on my face and the noise it makes. UPPP(Uvulopharyngopalatoplasty) and Base of Tongue Reduction were recommended by Dr. Falk. Recovering after the surgery was not easy. I stayed in the hospital overnight to control swelling and pain. For the first week after the surgery there was a lot of pain and difficulty with swallowing and eating. Despite the pain, I felt that I could breath better even during the daytime. I have not awakened with snoring or needing to catch my breath. I was able to control the pain with Tylenol 3-4 times a day by the 10th day.

Dr. Falk did an excellent job. He is precise and efficient. Despite his busy schedule, he is thoughtful and warm. He is a highly respected surgeon and physician. I would recommend him to others including my own family. I am looking forward to travelling with family and friends without embarrassment or worries. I have more energy to enjoy life since I no longer feel tired all the time. Dr. Falk improved my life. I am a happy patient.
