Are you in search for a provider who offers quality care in the specialty of ear, nose, and throat (ENT)? Here at Kingwood Urgent Care, we have some of the top-rated doctors in the area to provide this specialty of care. These doctors are called, Otolaryngologists (pronounced oh/toe/lair/in/goll/oh/gists) which are physicians who are trained in the medical, surgical and treatment of patients with ailments and disorders of the ear, nose, throat and related issues of the head and neck. These specialists treat a wide range of these conditions such as, hearing loss, sinusitis, vertigo, sleep apnea, tonsillitis, chronic sore throats, thyroid disorders, and ringing or noise in the ears which is also known as tinnitus. Our doctors provide care to both children and adults.
Having any of these conditions can have a considerable effect on your quality of life, especially in chronic cases of ENT issues like hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Thyroid issues are common in America and impact over 200,000 people each year with hyperthyroidism being the most common. Hyperthyroidism is the overactivity of your thyroid gland which creates an overproduction of the thyroxine hormone which can increase metabolism. Some symptoms include unexpected weight loss, rapid or irregular heartbeat, sweating, and irritability. Although it has been noted that the elderly often experience no symptoms. It is essential to seek medical attention if you are experiencing these symptoms, and our doctors will work with you to find the best treatment options. Some treatments include radioactive iodine, medications, and sometimes surgery.
Otolaryngologists have advances skills in other areas as well. Some of those skilled areas are in Otology and neurotology which is a disease of the ear that comes in many forms. These conditions include hearing loss, ear infections, swimmers’ ear, and tinnitus. Many of these issues such as ear infections, problems with the tonsils, asthma, allergy, and sinus concerns are seen in children. This is another specialty that is offered at our location, with Pediatric Otolaryngology. Head and neck issues such as cancers, tumors, and lumps are also issues an otolaryngologist will help provide care for.
Our doctors can also evaluate you for rhinology, diseases of sinus and nose, and laryngology, problems with the throat. These problems can include GERD, swallowing difficulties and allergy issues. We’ve treated many patients suffering from hay fever, laryngitis, dizziness, and seasonal perennial rhinitis. Similar to hay fever, perennial rhinal is a chronic allergic condition that doesn’t wane throughout the year and results in nasal congestion and a runny nose. These are all just a few more examples of what our well educated and highly professional physicians can provide services for.
