When should I see an ENT doctor?

Your first point of contact for all medical care is usually your internal medicine provider. After evaluating your symptoms and performing any necessary tests, your provider may send you to see an on-site ENT specialist if you have issues such as chronic congestion, swallowing issues, ear infections, or hearing problems.

Boulevard Medical HealthCare/Tender Medical Care, P.C., makes both routine care and specialty care, like seeing an ENT provider, easy by housing a diverse group of medical specialists under the same roof.

What can I expect from ENT treatment?

Your ENT specialist tailors a treatment plan according to your condition and how it’s impacting your daily life. Some conditions require medication, while others respond to minimally invasive surgical procedures.

ENT doctors are skilled surgeons who regularly perform procedures such as tumor removal, ear tube placement, tonsil removal, eardrum repair, Sleep apnea correction and septum repair in the nose. 

In most cases, ENT surgeons use minimally invasive approaches with tiny incisions to minimize bleeding and reduce pain during recovery.
