5 Surprising Reasons to Visit an ENT Doctor

5 Surprising Ways an Ear Nose Throat Miami Can Help

Most patients don’t realize ENT doctors in Miami treat more than just ears, noses, and throats. Here are some potentially surprising areas we treat every day.

1. Allergies

Environmental allergies to dust, dander, and pollens are very common problems. ENTs are best suited for evaluation and treatment of these issues for a number of reasons:

  • We perform the most accurate, sensitive type skin testing. It is not uncommon for us to see patients with “negative results” from other Miami Allergists only to have many positive results when we test them.
  • We offer both subcutaneous (shots) and sublingual (drops) forms of immunotherapy.
  • We can evaluate and simultaneously treat complications of allergies, such as sinus infections, headaches, facial pressure, etc. using medication and / or procedures. Other types of doctors do not perform these procedures.

2. Rhinoplasty

It is not well known that 25% of an ENT’s training is Facial Plastic Surgery. This is required for our Board examinations. As surgeons dedicated solely to the face, we are truly the experts of the nose. Compare this to General Plastic Surgeons, who are more generalized.

Often we see patients who have had cosmetic rhinoplasty elsewhere, who have unfortunate complication problems breathing afterwards. As an ENT, we are treating breathing problems very regularly and understand how to avoid these mistakes.

More information on rhinoplasty is available on Dr. Murray’s Rhinoplasty Miami website.

3. Facial Rejuvenation (Botox / Injectables)

As Facial Plastic Surgeons specializing in the face, who better to trust with your Botox and injectable treatments? Our highly trained professional facial experts provide you with attractive yet relatively conservative non surgical therapies in our Aventura and Midtown / Wynwood offices.

4. Sleep Problems (Apnea)

ENT’s diagnose and treat a wide range of sleep related problems, including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. There are often medical and sometimes surgical options which your provider can discuss with you.

5. Dizziness / Vertigo

While not all dizziness originates from the inner ear, it might be the most common source of these types of complaints. Certainly, unless there are extreme circumstances suggesting stroke or heart attack, an inner ear evaluation is a good place to start. Often it can be difficult to find the diagnosis, but this gets the ball rolling in the right direction at least.

Ultimate Guide to Finding a Good ENT Doctor

THE Guide to Finding a Good ENT Doctor Miami, Florida

 

Ever wonder what type of advice an ENT doctor Miami might give to a family member or really good friend, that possibly isn’t already common knowledge?

 

Since we here at Miami ENT Doctors value the health of our patients above all, we want you all to know that we will treat you like family. Starting with this goldmine of a list here – insider information on what to look for and what to consider before visiting an ENT doctor in Miami or anywhere for that matter.

 

Ready?

 

1. Go to an ENT doctor.

While this may sound almost silly to mention, it’s probably the single biggest way to save yourself time, money, and stress. Too often we see patients who have been to an Urgent Care 3, 4, or 5+ times prior to eventually making it to see an ENT specialist. While it might feel quicker or less expensive to see an Urgent Care, the failure to have a more specific diagnosis (and therefore effective treatment) can ultimately lead to only delay in feeling better.

Sure, Urgent Care is great after hours or on the weekend for a once in a while problem. But if you are a “frequent flier”, do yourself a favor and see an ENT specialist instead to help you get to the actual root of your issue and break the sickness cycle.

 

2. Get a Fast Appointment.

We all know what it’s like to be sick or not feel well. ENT related problems can come on quickly and the suffering can be intense. We pride ourselves on getting patients in right away, since this is a very important part of the philosophy of our practice.

Our aim is same day appointments if needed! If one of our doctors isn’t available because of surgery for instance, we can often provide you another one of our excellent ENT physicians instead.

We have even developed a rapid, online appointment scheduler for your convenience. You can see which doctors are available and in which offices easily at a glance and book right away.

3. Check office services.

The vast majority of ENT type of problems we see people for requires some type of special equipment for proper evaluation or treatment. Yet another reason Urgent Care isn’t your best bet. An accurate diagnosis requires detailed evaluation – be it via endoscopy, audiometric evaluation, allergy testing, or CT scanning. We perform all of these services directly in our offices, in order to serve you most efficiently.

See the following for more information regarding each of these technologies.

  • Endoscopy
  • Audiometric Evaluation (Hearing Test)
  • ENG (Balance Test)
  • Allergy Testing
  • CT Scanning

While there is truly no such thing as the “best doctor”, since medicine, although rooted in science and evidence based decision making, is still somewhat of an art form. Just like there is no such thing as the “best painter”, a title of the “best doctor” is somewhat arbitrary. Of course, we all have been provided excellent care by health care professionals at some point in our lives – the joy of feeling healthy no doubt inspires one to want to dish out that “best doctor” title.
