“I reluctantly went to the Dr. Holmes (I have been to several ENTs in this area) after my mom (a nurse of 25 years) told me I needed to see a doctor for an ongoing scab I had in my nose that I thought was due to allergies. He diagnosed me with exactly what my mom thought I had, a bacterial infection. After 3 months of suffering, I’m already starting to feel better after two days of visiting his office. He was very kind and took his time to assess me not just once, but twice. The nurse I had (I believe her name was Monica) was extremely sweet and very engaged to assure I received the proper treatment. I will be sure to visit him in the future if any other problems arise, and I would advise anyone else suffering with chronic issues to do the same. Thank you to the staff and doctor for making this a positive experience!

“My only regret is not becoming a patient of Dr. Holmes sooner. I suffered from reoccurring sinus infections 3 or more times per year for years, which became more frequent in occurrence. After going to several other ENTs without any improvement, I finally started doing some research on my own, and was fortunate to find Dr. Holmes. My condition was so severe, the in-office balloon sinuplasty procedure required a follow-up procedure at a day surgery center. I noticed that I could breathe significantly better right away.

Surprisingly, I experienced no pain or discomfort from either procedure. Since my balloon sinuplasty procedures approximately eight months ago, I have experienced no sinus infections or upper respiratory infections. I am thrilled to have found Dr. Holmes, and could not be more pleased with the outcome.” –  Kennedy Q.

“I’ve suffered from chronic sinusitis rhinitis for years and Dr Holmes is the first doctor to discuss treatment plans and find ways to get me OFF medicines and live a more productive and healthy life. He is all for what’s right for me!! He understands my triggers that cause flair ups and rather the push pills down my throat he has supported finding stress relievers (massage therapy, chiropractic work, anything that keep my stress triggers at bay) He’s easy to talk to… matter of fact with a sense of humor. I recently had nasal polyp removal and I feel amazing. Literally six hours post op and zero discomfort with limited pain management. So happy to have a doctor I trust and who has my best interest at heart.

He genuinely cares about my well being and I am sincerely grateful. I will have a continued relationship with Dr Holmes for the management of my condition and I couldn’t be in more capable hands. He’s is the sixth ENT I’ve had over the last four years! The search is OVER. Never retire Dr Holmes… You have a gift.” – Loni G.

“For my whole life, I’ve suffered by chronic Sinusitis. I’ve seen MANY ENT’s that basically gave up and one (local) ENT even said that I was “Making it all up.”. I heard of Dr. Holmes and Balloon Sinuplasty and thought I would give that a try. For the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE, I CAN BREATHE! The procedure was simple, quick and life changing. Won’t ever see another ENT as long as I’m in Raleigh. ” – Darren H.

“Dr. Holmes and the staff at ENT & Audiology are amazing! Courteous, patient, and thorough in all they do. The office is extremely clean, the play area is perfect for young children, and we have never had to wait long for our appointments. My son was sent to Dr. Holmes after a poor hearing test.

Dr. Holmes determined that my son needed tubes, as well as tonsils and adenoids removed and nasal turbinates reduced. NONE of the doctors my son had seen in the past for his allergies, sleeping issues, etc ever looked into these areas. Thanks to Dr. Holmes my son no longer suffers from sleep apnea, “allergies” or hearing problems!! I would recommend this practice to EVERYONE!” – Cassandra W.
