I was suffering from breathing issues caused by a deviated septum, enlarged nasal turbinates, and nasal valve collapse. Dr. Peter Hwang correctly diagnosed the issues I was experiencing and went above and beyond in his consultation process. He recommended his colleague Dr. JP Pepper to perform the deviated septum portion of the surgery due to the nasal valve collapse. Dr. Hwang performed the turbinate reduction and septal body shave. The first 5 days or so after the surgery were a little rough, but a couple of months in now it was totally worth it! My breathing has improved immensely and no longer have been experiencing any congestion after the surgery. I couldn’t recommend Dr. Hwang highly enough or his colleague Dr. Pepper. They both did a fantastic job and the surgery was a total game changer!
