VivAer for Lasting Relief For Your Stuffy Nose

If you regularly experience difficulty breathing through your nose and nothing seems to help, you may have nasal obstruction. Until now, finding a long-term solution often meant surgery. Now, our physicians may be able to offer you lasting relief without surgery by performing the VivAer® procedure to open your nasal airway.

  • 97% of patients experienced significant improvement in nasal breathing
  • Non-invasive, minimal discomfort, no incisions and can be performed in office

VivAer Procedure Testimonial

Hear from a real VivAer patient, Mitch, on his journey with the VivAer procedure. After 12 years of suffering through very poor breathing and constantly using over-the-counter sprays, he was ready for an effective, lasting solution.

What Our Patients Say

Even prior to my appointment, I was blown away by the care and service provided by San Diego ENT. Lake treated me with extraordinary care, and did it with ease. I was seen by Dr. Yopa and Dr. Reuther for my needs, both taking what felt like extra time with me to get to the bottom of my concerns. Professional and special communicators but also extremely gifted doctors, with a heart. Mel was able to connect all the dots amongst the staff and set the tone for my multiple needs visit, huge support. Can’t say enough about my experience. Results were secondary to the care and depth I was provided, and comfort/confidence in the findings was easily attained. You won’t find a better ENT team, anywhere.

Dr. Leach is the most patient and kind doctor. He took my calls day and night after my surgery. I felt heard and he was always there to help and suggest ways to ease my pain after my nose deviation surgery.

My mom is a new patient which she was referred to Dr. Leach by Loma Linda Hospital in Murrieta. Love his staff, and the treatment given to my mom in what has been a stressful time. If there was a higher recommendation than five stars, I would give it.

Wonderful doctor, very kind. I got instant relief from an ear infection that I had suffered with for a month. Wish I had seen him sooner instead of multiple urgent care visits. Lesson learned. Front office, very kind and helpful. The office got me in immediately as well, I was very anxious because I could not hear through the affected ear. Dr. Leach will be my go to ENT and will recommend to friends.

This was my first time to see an ENT and during Covid-19 it was concerning. This office in Temecula, CA was really nice, clean and using all safety precautions which made my visit care free! From the entrance front desk staff to the MA that took my vitals they were knowledgeable, kind and very helpful. Excellent staff. Matthew Leach, MD was the best. He took me through everything carefully. Explaining things in terms that gave me reassurance and his absolute kindness, patience and knowledge was incredible. Before I left he and his MA had the next steps ready and would follow up with other facilities and would get back to me. I’m so grateful my Internal Specialist referred me to Dr. Leach.

As a doctor I was really impressed with Dr. Reuther's bedside manner and her knowledge on the subject we were dealing with. Great simple advice! I will be referring my patients over to her as they need her expertise.

Yelp Review | Feb. 2020
Dr. Yopa has been extremely helpful and professional in providing the hearing aid solution I knew I needed. I found the whole process of finding a provider/doctor, selecting a device manufacturer, figuring out what device features I needed, and getting insurance coverage, was more complicated than expected. Dr. Yopa was the answer. She was thorough, caring, knowledgeable, works with many device manufacturers, is excellent at answering questions, and has a Doctor of Audiology degree. I am grateful I found Dr. Yopa rather than using one of the chain or retail type providers.
