Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Snoring may be a symptom of a condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). OSA is diagnosed when a patient's breathing slows or stops for a significant period of time multiple times throughout the night, and can be detrimental to your health. Read more about OSA and treatment options here.

Sinus Infections/Sinusitis

Sinusitis is inflammation or swelling of the sinus tissue which can block the sinus drainage pathways, making you feel congested. It can be caused by infection, allergies, and more. Read more about Sinusitis and treatments here.

Chronic Nasal Obstruction

Not being able to breathe well through the nose can be a very frustrating problem. Not only can nasal congestion be extremely uncomfortable, but it can also make it difficult to exercise and sleep through the night. Read more about treatments here.


Tonsillitis is the inflammation or swelling of the tonsils. Tonsils are part of your immune system and help to fight infection. However, sometimes they can become a problem of their own. Find out more here.

Our Mission

We do our best to create a soothing atmosphere for you, our patients. Our goal is to help you receive the care you need as thoroughly and efficiently as possible in a warm and friendly atmosphere. We will take the time to listen. We will take the time to explain why recommended tests are ordered, why medicine and/or surgery may be needed, and what those treatments entail.

Continuity of care is essential to your total health. We work closely with your internists and other specialists to gain a more complete understanding of your health issues. If you need further care outside the scope of this practice, we can help you find the healthcare provider who we would trust to evaluate the problem, or the complementary treatment we feel may help. Please take some time to look at the services we provide to see the many ways in which we may be able to help you directly.
