It doesn’t get any better than this. I came for a second opinion regarding sinus surgery- which I was told I needed by more than one ENT MD previously. The staff was professional and accommodating. They even worked with me to keep the cost of my appointment down! The entire office was very advanced technologically- I even got a copy of the Dr. Gold’s notes to take home! Dr. Gold was genuine and on time! And you could definitely tell that he knows his stuff. AND It turns out I do not need sinus surgery, I have reflux! 5 star medical care, I didn’t know there was such a thing but apparently there is!
Took very sick husband to see Dr. Gold, following visit to internist, who said husband needed to be seen immediately by a specialist. Though late in the day, with patients still being seen, Dr. Gold and his staff spent about an hour with us, and my husband improved greatly over the next few days, confirmed by a follow-up visit which was also very thorough. Dr. Gold is very knowledgeable and experienced, warm and thorough, and really listens to his patients. I have seen him over the years, and recommend him unreservedly.

Dr. Krevitt is a phenomenal doctor — the best thyroid cancer doctor in the country. And also an incredibly kind and caring person. When I was in need of cancer surgery specialist for thyroid cancer, I asked everyone I could who was the best, and I was repeatedly told to go to Dr. Krevitt. And I am so fortunate that they did. He saved my father’s life. He quickly diagnosed the issue, and the surgery was a perfect success. I whole-heartedly recommend Dr. Krevitt. Surgery is scray, especially throat cancer surgery. So, it was important to have the best doctor. My whole family is incredibly lucky to have found Dr. Krevitt. And, because we did, we also will be incredibly lucky to have our father around for many years to come.
After going through all the specialists I was sent to in Ontario Canada I was told they couldn’t find the cause or fix my sinuses and I had to live with it and take pain killers. I contacted the office of Dr. Krevitt and found the entire staff very helpful and knowledgeable. They went out of their way to work with me for a resolution. Dr. Krevitt not only figured out the issue on the first appointment he did surgery and in a one hour surgery was able to fix everything our doctors had given up on. I had forgotten how amazing it felt to be able to breath and sleep an entire night. The quality of service was so amazingly professional and courteous that I am unable to put It into words. Thanks to everyone at your facility, you gave me a quality life back.

Question: What could be the cause/reason for on/off nose bleeds from 1 nostril frequently?
First of all, thank you for your question. Recurrent nose bleeds (epistaxis in medical terms) is quite a common problem. We see this most often during the winter when the heat is on. If we heat room air from 30 to 65 degrees, the humidity drops down to levels one sees in the desert. The mucous membrane lining of the nose then can dry out and crack, causing a nose bleed. It there is a prominent blood vessel on one side- or if the septum- (center wall of the nose) is deviated (twisted)- then there can be a prominent point on the wall that the air hits and dries out faster- Both of these will cause nose bleeds to be more common on one side.
If you are taking aspirin (even baby aspirin) or a blood thinner- then the bleeding can often become more problematic- as these medictions delay the forming of a clot- or scab-
When the lining of the nose is more swollen (from a cold, allergies or a sinus infection- among other causes)- then there is a greater blood flow to the nasal lining and that also makes people more susceptible to nose bleeds.
Lastly, and thankfully least commonly, there can be a growth- benign or malignant tumor- in the nose that causes bleeding.
Try to keep the nasal passages moist in the winter- use topical saline sprays, ointments to the tip of the nose, humidifier if you can keep clean,-
If you have a nose bleed- put some cotton in the nose- with afrin(oxymetazoline 0.05%) if you have- and find a clock. Then pinch the bottom of your nose for 5 minutes (about the time it takes to form a clot in most people)- but longer if you are taking a blood thinner.
If the bleeding persists, you need to seek medical care- And if you continue to have bleeding from one side of the nose, even if it stops- it is important to have your nasal cavities evaluated to make sure there is no worrisome cause, and to see if there is a blood vessel that needs to be cauterized.
I hope this clears things up.
