From the first appointment to the last, dr paun made me feel very comfortable. The operation I had was made stress free and the outcome is great and better than I expected. Thank you very much.
Mr. Paun inspires confidence with his thorough and professional demeanour. I know I was in very skilled hands yesterday for my revision rhinoplasty, and I am so glad I did my research and found him. I look forward to healing and seeing the results over time.
Compassionate and professional care! Everything went extremely smoothly and I have a true feeling of trust being under Mr Paun’s care. All my questions were answered in an honest, calming way. I feel I can always reach out to him in case I have any queries.
Mr. Paun performed a brilliant FESS and balloonoplasty. It was done quickly and almost painlessly. Highly recommended.
Very happy with the consultation, treatment and care shown by Mr Paun. Thank you so much.
Dr Paun understood exactly what my issues were with my breathing and nose from the first appointment and advised me to have the nasal septum surgery as it was the right step for me. He gave me time to decide if this is really what I wanted to do and explained what the outcome might be like. Truthfully, the results are better than I could have imagined. My deviation was quite severe in the first place which is perhaps why I have experienced such positive results but generally it was pleasant to deal with Dr Paun throughout. He explained everything well and suggested other ways I can help myself with my breathing in addition to surgery. Eg by running an allergy test. The recovery from the operation was more sore than I had expected and I would recommend a full week off work to recover, I thought I could work from home after the op but I actually needed around 4-5 days of rest. To others who have the same level of deviation as I did, I would recommend this surgery. It got slightly infected but Dr Paun suggested some medicines that cleared this up within a couple of days. All in all, a positive experience dealing with him and his secretary and I am very glad I chose to go through with this procedure.
I had Mr. Paun as my Consultant for a Septoplasty and Turbinate reduction procedure. Mr. Paun was prompt, professional, knowledgeable, and most importantly an incredible surgeon. My breathing capability through my nose is significantly improved, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Would highly recommend Mr. Paun.
Very happy with the result of my septorhinoplasty carried out by Dr Paun. Finding it much easier to breathe and the whole experience from consultation through to operation and post op meetings has been very smooth.
