Audiology (Ears)

Nose and Sinus

Each year, millions of Americans suffer from one or more episodes of the common cold, flu (influenza), allergic rhinitis, and sinusitis. All of these conditions have one thing in common -- they all produce respiratory problems.


The throat is located in the front part of your neck and contains the pharynx and larynx. Below are common conditions affecting the throat.

Snoring and Sleep

Does your snoring disrupt your spouse? Are you just plain tired? Snoring may appear to be a lot of harmless noise at night, but many people do not realize it can be a sign of a more serious condition known as sleep apnea.

Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery is used for the correction or restoration of form and function including reconstruction of the nose, scar reduction, mole removal, and ear surgery.
