Nice to Meet You

"Many people that I see have the same nose and sinus issues that I did. Even to this day, there are many of them that are undiagnosed. I strive to diagnose these conditions properly, treat the root of the issue, and change patients’ lives."

Hello, my name is Dr. Mohammad Shaker, and I am a sinus and sleep surgeon at ADVENT. Growing up, I had trouble with my nose and sinuses, too. It wasn’t until I was 18 that I found out I had a deviated septum and allergies. It took me ten more years to get the help I needed. Fixing my nose became a priority for me during medical school. After my surgery, taking that first breath through my nose felt amazing! I remember specifically chocolate chip cookies and milk smelling and tasting so different, so much better, than they had in the past. That experience drove me to help others with nose and sinus issues.

As your doctor my main goal is to use simple procedures done in the office to help you breathe better. Breathing well through the nose, especially during sleep, is crucial for good quality of life. When you visit me, know that I understand what you’re going through because I’ve been there too. I know it can be tough when doctors don’t take your symptoms seriously or don’t diagnose you properly. That’s why I’ll make sure to take the time to help you, just like I was helped myself. We’ll work together to discuss your goals and come up with a plan to tackle the root cause of your problem.

"I went to ENT's for years and they did very little to help my sinus issues. They just prescribed nasal sprays for years, one after another. Advent was great. All appointments were very detailed and informative. They spend a lot of time looking into my sinus problems. My breathing is so much better but not perfect after my procedure. I will take the improvement they gave me any day over the ENT doctors I saw before."

This place has literally changed my life. I have been a lifelong sufferer of sinus problems. Through the years, I have tried multiple over the counter remedies, seen several ENT specialists, and had a majorly invasive sinus surgery. None of it has ever really helped, and the surgery made it worse. I went to ADVENT...and I'm breathing more clearly than I ever thought possible. They truly delivered significant results. I am and will forever be grateful for the major improvement in the quality of my life.

This is a 1-stop-shop for issues dealing with those miserable nose, sinus and throat and breathing issues with lots of solutions and info to make an informed choice. Don’t waste your money on "a" specialist when it's all here under one roof and very reasonable cost wise. All we know is to go to Sleep centers that will slap miserable CPAP machines on you which only help with sleep disorders. Allergists give you sprays. Helpful....but ADVENT addresses several areas of sinus-nose-throat concerns. My Family member was given a Balloon Sinoplasty because sinuses were in bad shape from all previous nonsense and chronic drowning in mucus. He back at work next day with mild discomfort for 2 days. Major improvements! Was told if this didnt help as much as hoped, other things could be assessed. Very nice staff. Terrific follow up aftercare and support all along the way. very professional.

More About Me

Outside of work, I like to spend time with my family. A fun fact about me is that I am a private pilot. I always wanted to fly as a kid, so during medical school I pursued that dream as an escape from my grueling schedule. A second fun fact: My most scenic flight was over the Cascade Mountain Range in Washington.
