Ear, nose and throat symptoms affect us all. Each year, as many as 36 million American adults report some degree of hearing loss, two-thirds of couples say their partner snores at night, and 37 million people are afflicted with sinusitis. Otolaryngologists are trained in the medical and surgical treatments of patients with diseases of the ear, nose, throat (ENT), and related structures of the head and neck. They are commonly referred to as ENT physicians.
There are many reasons that may lead you to schedule an appointment with an ENT physician. They might include snoring, hoarseness, chronic headaches, repeated nose bleeds, tonsil problems, breathing difficulties, frequent sinus infections, nasal fractures, chronic sore throats, ringing in the ears, dizziness, balance issues, hearing loss, difficulty swallowing, and any ear, nose or throat pain or injury.
If you have any of the above concerns that do not clear up within a few weeks or if they are reoccurring, it might be time to speak to your primary care physician or consult an ENT physician. With a complete array of diagnostic and therapeutic services for all healthcare needs associated with the head and neck, otolaryngologists are experts in the full spectrum of ear, nose and throat care.
The ENT physicians in our community are committed to providing children and adults of all ages with high quality, clinically proven, medical and/or surgical treatment options for conditions that involve the ears, nose, throat, head and/or neck.
