This patient’s nose knows that no pain after sinus surgery is worth a party.
I had a sinus surgery and had no pain after. Surgery on Wednesday and went to a party on Saturday.Our ENT Patient
Dr. Lykins was my final hope after suffering several years from previous misdiagnoses. This wonderful, patient, man gave me a life that is now livable, but most importantly proved that “the cream always rises to the top” the best is to be tasted and God gave me the chance to taste the best. So my friends, seek comfort and see this great doctor.
I really like Dr. Lykins!
I have visited Dr. Lykins 2 or 3 times, and he is really kind and friendly. I will have him as my primary doctor for nose / allergy issues. No doubt.
Dr. Lykins is an unbelievable surgeon!
Dr. Lykins removed our daughter’s adenoids and tonsils in two separate surgeries. With each surgery she had relatively little recovery time and was back on her feet (and eating!) that same day. His method on the tonsils was quick and painless. I would highly recommend you see him for this procedure and others. His staff is friendly and accommodating and he is an unbelievable surgeon.Pediatric Tonsillectomy Parents
Dr. Lykins Takes Pride in His Work
This review is long past due. Dr. Lykins performed my partial thyroidectomy in Oct 2014. This sounds common, but it is not an easy surgery and my goiter was particularly large. Dr. Lykins takes pride in his work, he wants to do an excellent job, and he did take all the extra time in surgery that day to get it right. I have a very small scar, but did not suffer any of the possible complications from the surgery.
As is typical, I had pre and post op office visits with Dr. Lykins. He has a cheerful personality, he explained everything, answered all my questions, and he did not rush.
Dr. Lykins seems like he genuinely likes what he is doing and wanted me to have a successful experience. At a post-op office visit the MA was busy, so he took out my last lingering stitch himself instead of making me wait.Gloria D.
