Ent Treatment in Long Beach – Constant Cough

We have all been there, the cough that just won’t go away.  Having a lingering cough after a cold or upper respiratory tract infection is common for up to one week after your other symptoms have stopped.  For coughs that last longer than that, it is important to see an ear, nose and throat specialist.

I recently had a long conversation about all of the construction in Long Beach.  With a huge number of demolitions and reconstruction projects being done in Long Beach, the dust and other particles are being released into the air.  We are all breathing in these things and so if your cough lingers and you live in Long Beach, NY it is doubly important to have an ear, nose and throat specialist examine you.

At Evergreen E.N.T. we are dedicated to providing the highest quality ear, nose and throat treatment for our patients in Long Beach, NY and Garden City, NY.  See us to get the bottom of your chronic cough!

Snoring? What you need to know. ENT help is here in Long Beach, NY and Garden City, NY

Snoring is very prevalent issue for American adults today.  From an occasional snore to the snorer whose sounds wake you like a train running through your home, most of us have snored or know someone who snores regularly.

Snoring can be range from an innocuous annoyance to a sign of obstructive sleep apnea or OSA.  Sleep apnea occurs when tissue falls into the throat and closes it decreasing oxygen.  The decrease in oxygen then triggers you to wake up from sleep.  The result can be extreme fatigue and untreated can lead to premature death.

We at Evergreen E.N.T. are here to help you figure out if you or a loved one just snores (and we have ear, nose and throat treatments for that). Or if you have obstructive sleep apnea.  In both our Garden City and Long Beach ENT locations we will first perform a full ear, nose and throat exam and then determine if further testing is needed.

So don’t suffer, come in to one of our 4 convenient locations (Long Beach, Garden City, Inwood or Rosedale) to see one of our ear, nose and throat specialists.

Clogged ears? It could be ear wax.

Each day I see several patients who have been suffering with clogged ears or decreased hearing.  Many have used over the counter ear drops or other remedies in futile efforts to “unclogged” their ears.  It is important to understand that there are a myriad of causes for clogged ears, wax is only one possible reason.  Second, using drops or putting things into your ears can cause a clogged feeling to get worse or posssibly cause damage to your ears.

So if you have clogged ears:

*do not use over the counter remedies

*see an Ear, nose and throat specialist

*do not delay

We can help you get “unclogged” safely and expeditiously.  As ENT specialists, we will also give you regimens to follow to keep your ears clean and happy.

Here’s to hearing well!
