All South Florida ENT Associates locations are now open to serve their patients and communities. Patients can request their appointment online at https://www.sfenta.org/locations or by calling the office directly.
South Florida ENT Associates realizes that healthcare is an essential need that one should continue to prioritize, even in these troubling times. That’s why the practice is taking every possible measure to make sure patients are still able to access the same safe, high quality care that patients have come to expect at South Florida ENT Associates.
In an effort to provide our patients the safest and most effective care social distancing techniques and appropriate protective equipment will be in place in our offices.
All of our locations have implemented protocols which include extra instrument disinfection, rearranged waiting rooms to allow for greater social distancing, thorough surface cleaning and exam room sanitizing between patients. Our physicians and staff are provided personal protective equipment (PPE). Patients will be asked to wear a mask or at least a homemade covering scarf, or bandana at all times when on the premises. Additionally, only the patient is allowed in the office. For children and adult patients who require a caretaker, one adult may accompany the patient.
Our offices are following all recommended guidance from public health authorities, including best practices for hygiene, infection control and medical professional team health. We are grateful to the healthcare professionals on the front lines who are fighting to contain the virus and helping patients with COVID-19 and thankful to our colleagues who continue to come to work on site each day to ensure we can continue to deliver the best ENT, Allergy, and Audiology care our patients deserve.
South Florida ENT Associates will continue offering Telemedicine visits for patients who do not feel comfortable in the clinical setting.

South Florida ENT Associates (SFENTA) is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our patients, clinicians, and employees, particularly among the recent concern and outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. We are continuing to respond to the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Department of Public Health from each state, which are closely monitoring the outbreak of the COVID-19.
Across our network, SFENTA is implementing safety precautions to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the health of our patients, employees, and visitors. These preventive measures include:
As a current patient, if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms (i.e., cough, fever, shortness of breath, sore throat), please call your care center location and ask to speak to a staff member who can guide you with more information and treatment suggestions.
We ask that you DO NOT come into the office for any pre-scheduled appointments if you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms.
In addition, if you are not experiencing flu-like symptoms, but have traveled outside of the country in the last 14 days, contact a member of our triage staff to determine whether you should come into one of our care centers.
It is our goal to keep all of our patients healthy , reduce the spread of infection, and to make sure you have accurate information. We will continue to keep this site updated as more information becomes available.
Please note that the overall immediate health risk from the coronavirus is still considered low. People in areas where ongoing community spread of the virus has been reported are at elevated, though still relatively low, risk of exposure.
However, healthcare workers caring for patients with the COVID-19 and others in close contact with infected persons are at a greater risk of exposure. Travelers returning from affected international locations where community spread is occurring are also at elevated risk of exposure.
The CDC believes the virus may appear between 2-14 days after exposure. There is no vaccine and treatment is supportive. The virus is spread person to person mainly by respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. This is similar to other respiratory pathogens like influenza.
Together, South Florida ENT Associates will continue monitoring and preparing to meet the current challenge in order to ensure our staff and patients receive the same quality of care they deserve. We are committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our patients, clinicians, and employees
