I was set to get my tonsils removed with another doctor at a different hospital, but my gut feeling said to cancel and go to UF Health. I made an appointment with Dr. Halawi and was seen the next day. Dr. Halawi spent more time with me than I would have expected and worked with me to fit in my surgery as soon as possible. She even gave me optional alternatives to surgery options, but I was set on having the tonsillectomy. The surgery was well over an hour because Dr. Halawi took her time and did a fantastic job. I know so many others who have had a tonsillectomy with other doctors and went through a nightmare recovery (some the same week as myself). My recovery was a dream. I elected to not have any sedatives prior to surgery and woke up feeling great. I did only soft foods the first day, but the second day I at Chick-Fil-A (although I had to write down my order since I could not talk). It has been nearly 3 months since surgery... I would 100% recommend to everyone I know.
