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.
