Common nasal or sinus symptoms can be due to a variety of underlying problems.  Underlying problems can include chronic sinusitis, allergic rhinitis and anatomical abnormalities.  We recommend referral to a specialist when the sinus issues do not respond to common therapies such as topical steroids or antibiotics.  In the office, we can get a detailed history and perform a comprehensive examination to include nasal endoscopy.  Based on the history and findings, an appropriate plan can be formulated.  Please schedule an appointment with one of our physicians today if you are having sinus problems.

April 16this World Voice Day sponsored by the American Academy of Otolaryngology.  The theme this year is Educate Your Voice.  Here are some tips on caring for your voice: Don’t smoke. Keep yourself well hydrated. Water is the best.  Don’t scream or shout excessively.  Take a vocal recess if you have laryngitis. Resting your voice will help it to heal.  Be smart and get evaluated by one of our physicians at Ocean Otolaryngology if you have persistent hoarseness.
