“I worked with Dr. Parker and his staff starting in October 2017. Dr. Parker first performed a Septoplasty to fix a deviated septum. He performed the Inspire implant in January 2018. I went to Puget Sound ENT because I was very unhappy with my CPAP experience. I learned that Puget Sound ENT was accepting patients for a new device that would do away with having to be hooked up to a machine every night. I was intrigued and made an appointment to see Dr. Parker. The staff at Puget Sound ENT was great. They made sure I fit the criteria for Inspire, noticing my poor results with CPAP and checking to make sure I didn’t have Central sleep apnea. They also made sure my insurance would cover the procedure. I was the first Medicare patient in the Northwest to receive Inspire. Every nurse, doctor and office professional at Puget Sound ENT was top notch. They really cared about me as a patient and wanted the very best outcome, while also helping to resolve my sleep apnea symptoms. The team at the surgery center was also great. I am now sleeping much better and have recommended Inspire to friends. Inspire can be a life changer, improving both overall health and comfort. Puget Sound ENT personnel are caring and dedicated professionals who truly want the best outcome for their patients.”

“We first met Dr. Kimbrough in January 2011. I had a benign lymph node below my chin that needed to be removed and sought out an ENT doctor after having moved to Edmonds. I had my surgery March 15, 2011 and Dr. Kimbrough provided follow-up care over the next six years, before we moved out of the area. I received outstanding care. Dr. Kimbrough was very proactive in getting me to surgery, while dealing with some of my other health issues, and provided excellent follow up care. Dr. Kimbrough took the extra time during surgery to remove the cancer, and my scar is barely noticeable. I appreciate that he took a personal interest in me and my well-being. Today, I feel well, and I am very grateful. I would recommend Puget Sound ENT to friends and family.”

“I was referred to Dr. Parker by my Sleep Medicine provider. My first visit was primarily a question and answer session. That occurred in May 2018. We agreed that I would have a follow up session at the Proliance Outpatient Surgery Center. Dr. Parker did the necessary procedure to see if Inspire therapy was appropriate for my sleep apnea. It was after that procedure I realized what a pleasure it was to once again have the ability to breathe through my nose. The added benefit, of course was I was a candidate for the Inspire therapy. It has truly been a positive experience working with the entire staff at Puget Sound ENT. I can honestly say I have never had relief from my sleep apnea prior to Inspire surgery with Dr. Parker. I would definitely recommend Puget Sound ENT to family and friends. They are just great people, the type I enjoy having a beer with.”


Jonathan Cannon

“Before I had the good fortune to encounter Dr. Kimbrough, I went to nine other specialists, none of whom provided a diagnosis. If not for Dr. Kimbrough’s competence and caring, I would still have a cancerous tumor growing in my neck. He is a first-class doctor. Many thanks.”


Michael Layman

“I was a patient of Dr. Tyler Kimbrough in October 2017, after being referred by my primary care doctor for a lymph gland issue. Dr. Kimbrough took the time to see me the same day and took a biopsy from my neck. He told me he would call as soon as the results were in. Just a couple days later, he called to give me the hard news – I had cancer in my neck. He went ahead and made arrangements to have a PET scan so he could more accurately diagnose my condition. All of this was done within a week and I could not have asked for better care and attention. Dr. Kimbrough quickly identified I had thyroid cancer and was able to get me into surgery to have it removed and stop the tumor from spreading. Because of his high-quality care, the tumor was removed, and I was able to start a successful treatment program of chemo and radiation at the University of Washington Medical Center. I have been cancer free since then and would certainly recommend Dr. Kimbrough. I’m very thankful I was able to see him when I did and will always be thankful for his professional care.”


Bernice Holfeld

“My first visit at Puget Sound ENT took place in 2012 and I worked with Dr. Shawn Rogers. I came to Dr. Rogers with multiple polyps in both sides of my sinuses and she informed me that surgery was required. Dr. Rogers was always punctual, and she talked to her patients in terms they could easily understand. I was treated very professionally and with consideration. The way I was made to feel comfortable and informed really stood out to me. I have felt great since the surgery. I am well-aware that polyps do return and if need be, I would not hesitate to have the surgery again through this practice. I would most definitely recommend Dr. Rogers to family and friends.”


Sandra Mack

“I worked with Dr. Kimbrough at Puget Sound ENT for allergies and had a bad sinus infection. I love him. I was one of his first patients. It’s been years. I instantly liked him. I’m a hairdresser and started sending my clients to him. The staff and doctors at Puget Sound are amazing. I had an issue where my ear didn’t pop after a flight and when I called, they got me in within hours. They acknowledge that you’re there immediately and if you have an appointment, they make sure you won’t wait too long. They really go out of their way. I could go on and on. Dr. Kimbrough is amazing and so personable. He is careful and so clear. I told him he needs a cape — he’s one of my heroes.”


Kyleen Perry

“I became acquainted with Puget Sound ENT about four years ago. I sought out help and guidance for my sleep apnea. I worked with the clinic using my CPAP as equipment to reduce the challenges, but I was lucky enough to test to see if I qualified for the new INSPIRE sleep system. Dr. Parker was able to provide the implant for me, and my life has improved more than I ever could have hoped. The staff at the clinic have been very supportive and genuinely caring of my progress, and I am so thankful for such an amazing outcome.”


Charu Kapnadak

“The INSPIRE implant for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea has been absolutely life-changing for me. I had chronic sinus infections due to a deviated septum and anatomical deformation of my sinuses. Working with Dr. Rogers and Dr. Parker, I had sinus surgery in 2011, and then twice again in 2017. My first surgery made breathing so much easier, and I’ve had barely any trace of sinus infection since then. I really appreciated that both doctors gave me my options and were willing to answer any questions I had. I never felt pressured into surgery, which is a huge decision, and I was able to make up my mind on my own time. I can now drive to work without having to stop and get out of my car every morning (because I was too sleepy for my 40-minute commute), I don’t have nightmares anymore, and I feel well-rested throughout the whole day. Going to sleep is no longer stressful for me. Puget Sound ENT has been so helpful in coordinating my INSPIRE appointments and figuring out billing for my insurance, which was not my experience at other clinics I worked with in the past.”

“I experienced Sudden Hearing Loss (SSL) in my left ear at the age of 53, followed by the early stages of hearing loss in my right ear. I’m a vocalist who relies heavily on her ability to hear music to perform. Dr. Doug Backous understood the magnitude of the potential for permanent damage to my hearing should the prednisone injection not take place. However, what gave me confidence to go through with the injection was how Dr. Backous assured me that many people before me have received the same injection from children to adults. After the injection and a two-hour drive home, I realized my hearing had returned at full strength in my right ear. Having a sensitive, caring staff – from the receptionist to the audiologist to Dr. Backous – made all the difference with my confidence in Puget Sound ENT! Their kindness and compassion to my situation, and ability to be empathetic to how I might be feeling was impeccable. Singing is all I know! Having my hearing restored has helped me regain confidence in performing. Any physician can give care. But to provide quality care, to treat patients truly as individuals, be direct in their diagnosis and prognosis, instill faith and confidence about their abilities in their patients… if ever the situation were to arise again, I would make a beeline right back to Puget Sound ENT. They really are the best of the best!”


Cyndi Crull

“I have been a Puget Sound ENT patient for more than 15 years. Dr. Duncan Riddell has been my physician. I receive an allergy shot every two weeks to help with my bronchitis. I no longer get Bronchitis at a pace of three or more times each year. The reception and medical team are always friendly and helpful. It means a lot to know that I have a whole team of doctors available when needed. They all know me by name and I receive a warm welcome every time I go. As a 60+ year old woman, it is comforting to know that I have a whole team standing behind me. They shall be my team for as long as I am on this planet. They are a wonderful group of care providers!”


The best patient care is put into practice every day at Puget Sound ENT — we consider it a privilege to serve you.
