So long winter coats, hello dresses, baseball hats and flowers! After the long dark days of winter, spring seems to finally be here! Long Islanders are breathing in the spring air and listening to the wonderful sounds of birds chirping. But as we know, spring on Long Island tends to be a tricky time. It seems that all at once the pollen count jumps causing nasal congestion and itchy eyes!
One question I get all the time is when to see an allergist and when to see an ear, nose and throat specialist. If you have nasal congestion, my advice would be to see an ENT specialist. Using our specialized tools (including nasal endoscopes) we can see deep into the nose to determine which parts of the nose are congested. ENT specialists can also determine if you have a sinus infection.
Garden City has an abundance of wonderful flowers leading to increased allergen counts, whereas Long Beach has different beach foliage and off the water winds leading to increased blowing/dispersion patterns. If you get congestion, headaches or difficulty breathing see an ENT specialist. With our advanced training and specialized tools, we will take care of your nasal congestion, sinus problems or snoring issues expediently!
