Services Provided

Endoscopic Procedures (Nasal Endoscopy and Laryngoscopy)

An internal examination of the nose and throat through use of an endoscope. An endoscope is a small device with a camera on the end that allows the doctor to look into your nose, throat, larynx, or voice box. This procedure allows the provider to determine why you may have congestion, cough or sore throat, to find and remove something that's stuck in there, or to take samples of your tissue to look at later.

Hearing Screening

This is an initial, non-invasive exam that determines if any hearing loss is present. The patient will be asked to listen to a number of sounds and respond to them accordingly. If hearing loss is detected, your ENT Specialist will have you follow up for further testing with one of our Doctors of Audiology.

Pulmonary Function Testing

This test will be utilized to assess lung function and determine the degree of damage to the lungs. This test is commonly performed on patients with asthma symptoms to help differentiate asthma from other chronic lung disorders, assess the severity, and/or to see if specific treatments are working.

Rhinometry

A diagnostic test that measures nasal pressure and airflow in and out of the nose and evaluates its respiratory function. It is the standard method for appraising the strength of the nose, including measuring the resistance of nasal airway.

Ear Wax Removal

In order to diagnose a buildup of earwax, your doctor will need to look in your ear with a special magnifying instrument called an otoscope. Once diagnosed, the wax buildup can be removed by an ENT Specialist a few ways: with a small curved instrument called a curet, through suction or by flushing out the wax using a water pick or warm water. If you continue to struggle with ear wax buildup, wax-removal medications may be recommended.
