Dr. Darshni Vira

Staff News!

It is with a mix of sadness and pride that we must announce that Dr Nadeem Akbar will be leaving California Sinus Centers at the end of June. Dr Akbar is surprised that his time with us is drawing to a close, as he has learned so much from his time in the office and surgery with Dr. Fong and Dr. Vaughan, and as we know “time flies when you’re having fun”.

He is heading to Tampa, Florida where he will reunite with his wife and join the University of South Florida’s Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Department He will be on staff at Tampa General Hospital and H Lee Moffitt Cancer Center. Dr Akbar is looking forward to living in the same state as his wife again, sampling the local cuisine, and enjoying a different kind of “bay area” lifestyle.

Welcome Dr. Darshni Vira

With Dr. Akbar’s departure, we proudly announce the arrival of our newest fellow Dr. Darshni Vira, who starts her practice with us in July. Read more about Dr Vira here.

Nosy News - Many of our patients remember the regular newsletters we used to publish a few years back. After many inquiries and requests, we've begun putting them together again, with the title "Nosey News". The newsletters cover a variety of subjects, from general sinus-related education to specific information from our offices. If you are in any way curious about what we've been doing here, or if you're just "casually interested", poke this link and find our archive of newsletters.
The Walnut Creek office of California Sinus Centers is pleased to announce that the office is now able to perform patient CT scans on site. This is made possible with the recent acquisition of a 3-slice upright CT scanner, manufactured by Xoran. The purchase of the scanner gives the office the ability to scan and treat patients in one visit, at one location. [In-office sinus CT] [Walnut Creek ENT Office]
