Allergies are the immune system responding to a typically harmless factor in your environment. This could be pollen, dust, or pet dander. Allergies can also come in the form of food or medication and may result in skin rashes, watery eyes, or congestion. Our allergists can help locate and treat a wide range of allergies.

Allergy treatments always begin with allergy testing in order to ensure the proper allergen has been located. Our Ft. Lauderdale ear, nose and throat office provides testing for food allergies, medication allergies, and environmental allergies. Once this is complete, we also offer treatments that include allergy shots, allergy drops, and biologic therapy to help patients achieve long-term relief.

The sinuses are hollow cavities within the face that help humidify the air we breathe and drain mucus. Over time they can become blocked or infected, leading to pain or discomfort, as well as nasal congestion and drainage. Our Ft.

Sinus treatment often has the goal of removing build-up or blockages from the sinuses. This can be achieved through several different methods of treatment, including balloon sinuplasty, nasal turbinate reduction, or sinus surgery. If you are interested in sinus treatment, contact our Ft. Lauderdale ENT office for more information.

Sleep apnea can often cause patients to snore, making it difficult to differentiate between the two. Our Ft. Lauderdale sleep specialists can help patients determine if they have sleep apnea through a sleep test. They can also help those experiencing sleep disorders find lasting relief through treatments that include CPAP machines and sleep apnea surgeries.
