Dr. CT (Cong Thu) Nguyen, MD, FACS

Head & Neck Surgeon, Ear, Nose & Throat Doctor

Houston, TX

*****This practice does not see patients for Vertigo, Thyroid, or injuries caused by car accidents. NO DRUG SEEKING PATIENTS***** Since 2001, Houston Sinus and Allergy has been dedicated to relieving sinus and allergy symptoms. Symptoms we treat are sinus headaches, chronic or recurrent sinus infections, sinus-induced migraines, nasal allergies, chronic congestion, and drainage. Please note we do NOT see patients for general ENT conditions such as dizziness, ringing in the ear, tonsils etc. Thank you for your consideration and understanding. Dr. Nguyen’s 10+ years of experience have allowed him to realize that a disease may require more medical intervention and investigation rather than an immediate need for surgery. If surgical treatment is necessary, Dr. Nguyen is trained in the latest advancements in minimally invasive treatment of the nose, sinuses, ear, head and neck even before it became widely popular. He is board certified in Otolaryngology -Head and Neck Surgery by the American Board of Otolaryngology. As a designated center of sinus excellence, our practice is the leader of in-office balloon sinuplasty in the Houston area. This procedure is a comfortable and effective way patients can receive sinus relief without general anesthesia. Because of Dr. Nguyen's experience with balloon sinuplasty, he was chosen to train a hand-selected group of ENT physicians from all over the country so patients can have access to this revolutionary procedure no matter where they live in the US.

Dr. Nguyen had the perfect combination of providing information, comfort and reassurance. He has a great spirit--in addition to his skill--and very supportive. His nurse was precious as well--lots of understanding and professionalism and his office staff receptionist really wonderfully receptive as well! Great Team. Thank You so much! Liz

I went in because I'm having pretty bad vertigo, and I hadn't checked that he specialized in sinuses rather than just being an ENT (this was my first time). He didn't really provide me much insight or any helpful tips. Heseemed very rushed when interacting with me. Didn't ask me any in-depth questions, and then seemed to berate me for "hiding" that I had seen another doctor who prescribed me medication. (I'm very tired and dizzy... My recall really isn't at its best.) however, his office seemed very busy so maybe he's a really great sinus doctor! Just wouldn't really recommend any one suffering from vertigo to go to him.

The staffs were okay. We waited less than 30 minutes to see this doctor. Throughout the examination, he was brief by providing short responses. We felt like he didn't pay enough time explaining and discussing our concerns.

It was awesome! The check-in was smooth. The doctor was friendly. He seemed smart, but made me feel comfortable. He used the videos and cool nose camera to help me understand my problem. I've never had a doctor's visit like that before. Highly recommend.

The doctor was very professional, but also personable as he interacted with the patient, my 85-year old mother. My mother felt very confortable with the doctor's examination and was confident that he addressed the cause of her pain accuratelywhich was not her impression of the other 2 doctors we visited for this same problem.
