A good ENT to go to, June 1, 2012, 12:53 pm
Reviewer: Candace56@aol.com

Dr. John Burgoyne has helped me with more than just my chronic and very stubborn sinus/ear problems. I’d been plagued with constant sinus and ear infections for most all of my adult life and no one was ever able to really get to the root of the problem. While I was always suggesting that I needed yet even more of some type of surgery to fix whatever was wrong, he actually tried to avoid doing that as much as possible, instead focusing on trying to get my body to heal in other, less invasive ways.
I’d been to a lot of doctors, trying to find out what was causing all of the chronic infections and he was the only one who ever figured it out. He treats the whole body instead of just the symptoms. He figured out the actual underlying cause of the condition, which in my case turned out to be a combination of about three different things. I was one of those “difficult…complex” cases that most doctors dread to deal with…let’s face it…I was a pain in the a#%!
As a Seattle area jazz/blues vocalist, I was in a world of hurt to say the least. I definitely was no longer able to do the gigs I so enjoyed to do in the past, but now that has all changed for the better. I am able to hear and sing again, not to mention that I’m able to feel a whole lot better too. I am now healthier than I’ve ever been in my entire adult life. Once again I can sing, swim, and do just about everything else that I used to love to do. Yes, there is life after sinus/ear troubles and I no longer fear the future! I highly recommend him to sinus sufferers everywhere…well at least in the Seattle area!

OLD TECHNIQUES & LITTLE INFORMATION, November 12, 2007, 4:37 pm
Reviewer: Trisha10

Quick List of Why I WOULD NEVER recommend this doctor. I would warn away anyone who was even thinking about seeing him.

Eyes: I had both upper and lower blepheroplasty. He actually cut a section out of the lower eyelid (call a canthoplasty). That left my eyes looking smaller and narrower and eliminated several of my lower lashes. It can also cause problems with the eye later and is very traumatic to the eye. I found out later that this was unnecessary. My left eye also looks "hollow" under the eyelid where he took out too much fat. Also his incisions were all from the front of the eye. Not what is called transconjunctival (from the inside of the eyelid where there is no scar). So there are scars on both upper and lower lids.

Face Lift: Although my face does look younger he left 2 3" scars on my neck below the hairline. The are lumpy, obvious and gross. I will never be able to wear my hair up again. And if anyone were to touch me on my neck they would probably be completely disgusted by the feel of them.

Laser skin resurfacing: CO2 was used. He gave me very little information. Said I would look normal in 1 month. His aftercare advice consisted of "buy a big jar of vasoline." It is now over 2 months and the skin looks red and feels pinched and tight. From what I understand I can expect another 4-5 months before I look like a human being again.

I FOUND OUT AFTER THE PROCEDURES WHEN I STARTED HAVING GRAVE DOUBTS -- HE ADMITS THAT HE ONLY DOES PLASTIC SURGERY ABOUT ONCE A MONTH. His assistant, who had worked there for 4 months said he had never seen a patient after one of the procedures I had done except me. So he probably does this twice a year at most.

STAY AWAY FROM HIM. He uses techniques that are 10+ years old, gives virtually no information unless you ask him directly (who knows what to ask when they first start??) and then he lies.

He gave virtually no information about aftercare for any of the 3 procedures I have done -- no handouts -- nothing. I felt completely on my own.

I just don't want anyone else to go through what I am still going through. STAY AWAY!
