As we approach fall and winter, we wish to update you on your ear nose and throat health. We recommend that you have your humidifiers inspected and cleaned. If you don't have one, this may be a good time to purchase. When heaters go on, so should humidifiers. In addition, nasal saline sprays and netty pots often times aid in healthy noses and throats. It is becoming increasingly well known how important good nasal breathing is for our overall health. I am sending a link to a recent story aired on CBS News, featuring James Nestor, author of the recent book, "Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art". It is very insightful and I hope you enjoy it.

We continue to take very strict COVID precautions. We have had no cases as a result anyone coming to our office or having surgery with us at Northwestern Hospital.
Flu season is rapidly approaching and strongly encourage the flu vaccine.
We are very pleased with our results of the Inspire(inspiresleep.com)procedure for sleep apnea. This has proven to be an excellent outpatient procedure for those who are not getting good results with CPAP.
As always, we offer a full range of services for your hearing health. We provide the most current technology for testing your hearing and providing the most appropriate hearing aids for each individual.
Please feel free to call the office(312-988-7777) for further information on all of the above or to set up an appointment. You may also send individual emails through our patient portal.

Wishing you all good health and safety,

What Does an ENT Treat?

As you might suspect, an ear, nose, and throat doctor treats issues that occur in the ears, nose, and throat. There are several issues that you might not realize an ENT doctor can treat, but it’s important to understand what they can do. The ear, nose, and throat control a large aspect of your life and how you function each day. It’s important that you don’t hesitate to visit your ENT doctor for any of these issues and that you’re getting treated as needed.

What an ENT Doctor Can Treat

Some conditions that an ENT doctor can treat may seem fairly obvious. For example, an ENT doctor treats chronic ear infections. Ear infections are most common in children but can happen to adults as well. Ear infections happen because of bacteria in the ears. This can typically be a result of another illness that causes congestion and swelling. Your sinuses are connected to most of your facial structure, and they affect each other.

Common conditions that your ENT doctor can treat include:

  • Vertigo
  • Tinnitus
  • Hearing loss
  • Sinusitis
  • Tonsillitis
  • Sleep apnea

Many of these issues can affect several parts of your facial structure and you might find that it’s difficult to function while you’re suffering from this condition. It can cause pain and inflammation in several areas. You might even find that it’s difficult to eat or sleep while dealing with pain. Your ENT doctor can assess this pain and provide treatment as needed. This can help clear up the pain and help you start feeling like your best self again!
