Super nice guy.

This was one of the best doctors I have seen at VM and I'm so thankful he was able to see me. He wasn't rushed with the time he spent with me and took good care to walk me through the process of the procedure he did. He was very polite and kind and I felt like he was family when we were done which I haven't felt before with other doctors especially first visit. Please keep him at FW for our area needs someone like this!!

Since I don't seem to be healing as quickly as normal the dr. took extra time to explain next steps/options.

this was my best experience with an ENT physician in my life. Dr. Deschenes was knowledgable, thorough and gave me an excellent explanation. I think I finally know what is wrong.
