"It was a blessing Dr. Banas was on call the day I needed ENT at ER. She is thorough, kind and knows what she is doing based on her expertise and experience. After 2 immediate care visits and 2 ER visits in 10 days plus coming back fromCollege twice, she finally found the root of the problem and knew how to fix it. Plus she was kind throughout the whole process along with the ER staff which also helped. So thankful for Dr. Banas."
