"I have recommended Dr. Gupta to everyone I know at SAS Institute, including our Health Care Director. We consider his techniques and dedication to solve a patient's problems unique and very well aligned to SAS's medical philosophy. I am looking forward to have him as my family's ENT from now on. I will always speak as highly as I can about his work and the way he handled my unique case."

'Dr. Gupta and his team are awesome. I had surgery for an extremely (like, EXTREMELY. Reallly really badly) deviated septum that was quick and easy, it healed perfectly and in seemingly record time. I didn't even need to have a debritment followup because Dr. Gupta and his team were so thorough and on-point with the process and aftercare. I'm currently having follow-up tests done for another condition in my ear. As always, his team is being extremely thorough and is chasing down every lead they can to get to the bottom of my issue. This is the only doctor's office I ever really look forward to coming into. Highly recommended.'

'After months of sinus issues, Dr. Gupta gave me back my life. The surgery he performed has left me able to breathe as a normal person would. I came to Dr. Gupta from another ENT, and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. March 1 was my first visit, totally blocked, and 4 months , surgery behind me , I am well on the road to a full recovery. My thanks and gratitude to Nurse Jackson and the staff that helped make this possible. Would highly recommend WAKE ENT SPECIALISTS to anyone in need of sinus relief. Bless you Dr. Gupta for all you have done.'

'Dr. Gupta and Wake ENT are amazing! In February I started having severe breathing issues. I originally thought it was an allergy so I went (to a different Dr.) and had an allergy test - turns out that was not the issue. After seeing an Allergy specialist and a different ENT, who didn't listen to my concerns, I found Dr. Gupta. I explained my concerns. He listened and immediately scheduled a Cat Scan, identified the issue, and scheduled a procedure. There were no issues with the surgery. During the follow-up, he explained the next steps in detail. I trust that Dr. Gupta knows what he is doing. He has a supporting team who also knows their role and everyone is always professional and prompt. I have had nothing but good experiences during each visit. I highly recommend Dr. Gupta!'

'Dr. Gupta did sinus balloon surgery for me and I feel like a new person now. Dr. Gupta took the time to clearly explain first of all my options and then the procedure itself. He is super nice and easy to talk to. His staff is also great. Everyone I've talked to in his office has been so very nice and helpful. I'm so glad I found Dr. Gupta and his team! I would highly recommend Dr. Gupta!'
