Ear

The ears help us hear the sounds around us, as well as maintain our balance when we stand and walk. When pieces of the ear are infected or begin not to work properly, your hearing and balance can be impacted.

  • Hearing Loss
  • Ear Infections
  • Dizziness

Audiology

Audiology is the branch of medicine that deals with hearing. Our specialized audiologists help to determine the source of your hearing loss and work with you to utilize the available options that can help improve it.

  • Hearing Loss

Allergy

Allergies are the immune system’s abnormal response to a foreign substance around you. These are items that don’t cause a reaction in all patients, but your immune system has found them to be harmful and reacted. Allergies can include environmental allergens such as dust and pollen, as well as food or medications.

  • Environmental Allergy
  • Immune Deficiency
  • Asthma Management
  • Hives and Eczema

Sinus

Your sinuses are hollow cavities that help found around the noses and eyes. Their walls are lined with mucus that helps filter and humidify our air. If this mucus does not drain properly, the sinuses can become blocked. This leads to problems such as sinus infections or other conditions.

  • Deviated Nasal Septum
  • Congestion (Nasal Blockage)
  • Nasal Drainage
  • Sinus Infections
  • Loss of Sense of Taste and Smell

Sleep

Sleep is an essential part of preparing yourself for the day ahead. We’ve all experienced the difficulties that a lousy night of sleep can cause. For those with sleep disorders, achieving a good night of sleep can be even more challenging and even require medical intervention to be achieved.

  • Snoring
  • Sleep Apnea

Head & Neck

The head and neck are hosts to different types of glands that help us maintain our health. Much like other areas of the body, the head and neck and the glands within can experience infection, swelling, and cancer. This can affect the overall balance of our health and the systems that maintain it.

  • Thyroid Masses
  • Neck Masses
  • Salivary Glands Masses
  • Enlarged Lymph Nodes
  • Abnormal Parathyroid Glands
  • Chronic Tonsils and Adenoid Infections

Voice & Swallowing

Our voices can help us connect and communicate with the world around us. While speaking can seem easily achieved, it is really the work of several muscles and organs working together to achieve sound. If one of these muscles is strained or infected, the voice or swallowing can be impacted.

  • Vocal Cord Tumors
  • Acid Reflux
  • Hoarseness
  • Difficulty Swallowing
  • Vocal Cord Nodules and Polyps

Ear

The ears help us hear the sounds around us, as well as maintain our balance when we stand and walk. When pieces of the ear are infected or begin not to work properly, your hearing and balance can be impacted.
