ENT & SLEEP
Ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctors (or otolaryngologists) specialize in treating medical conditions affecting the ears, nose, throat, head, and neck. These specialists are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of ailments including hearing loss, sinus infections, tonsillitis, sleep apnea, and more. They can also perform surgeries such as removing tonsils or adenoids if needed. ENTs are skilled at diagnosing ear problems such as tinnitus or Meniere’s disease; nasal issues like allergies or polyps; voice disorders such as vocal cord paralysis; swallowing difficulties caused by acid reflux or cancer; salivary gland dysfunction due to cysts or stones; thyroid nodules and tumors of the larynx. In addition to these common conditions they also have expertise in rarer diseases that affect these areas of the body.

ALLERGY & ASTHMA
“Allergists” are uniquely trained in the specialty of Asthma, Allergy & Immunology. Our physicians are board-certified allergists, meaning that they are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of multiple conditions, including allergic rhinitis (hay fever), asthma, food allergy, eczema, anaphylaxis (severe allergic reactions), chronic hives/swelling and penicillin allergy. Allergists can often times identify the underlying cause of these illnesses through allergy testing, which is helpful in managing symptoms more effectively.

A hearing doctor (or audiologist) is a healthcare professional who specializes in diagnosing and treating hearing loss, balance disorders, and other issues related to the auditory system. They are trained to identify any underlying medical conditions that may be causing or contributing to these symptoms. Common medical conditions treated by audiologists include ear infections, acoustic neuroma, otosclerosis, Meniere’s disease, perilymph fistula, and sensorineural hearing loss. Audiologists also diagnose and treat tinnitus (ringing in the ears), vertigo (dizziness), hyperacusis (overly sensitive hearing) as well as many other vestibular problems. In addition to diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions affecting the auditory system, an audiologist can provide counseling on how best to manage these conditions for improved quality of life.
