Patient Testimonial

If I could give more stars I would because Dr. Anthis, his staff & anesthesiologist were so great!

by C.M

Everyone was so hospitable & Dr. Anthis made sure to take care of us like you would for family from start to finish. My son’s adenoids & tubes in ears was a smooth surgery & seem like a great road to recovery for our little guy! Couldn’t be more pleased, highly recommended Dr.Joel Anthis if you’re looking for a great ENT!


Ear & Hearing

The ears help us hear the sounds around us, as well as maintain our balance when we stand and walk. When pieces of the ear are infected or begin not to work properly, your hearing and balance can be impacted.

Allergy

Allergies are the immune system’s abnormal response to a foreign substance around you. These are items that don’t cause a reaction in all patients, but your immune system has found them to be harmful and reacted. Allergies can include environmental allergens such as dust and pollen, as well as food or medications.

  • Allergy Shots
  • Allergy Drops
  • Food Allergy Testing
  • Environmental Allergy
  • Allergy Testing

Sinus

Your sinuses are hollow cavities that help found around the noses and eyes. Their walls are lined with mucus that helps filter and humidify our air. If this mucus does not drain properly, the sinuses can become blocked. This leads to problems such as sinus infections or other conditions.

  • Surgery for Nasal Polyps and Chronic Sinusitis
  • Septoplasty Deviated Septum Surgery
  • Nasal Turbinate Reduction
  • In-Office CT Imaging
  • Nasal Fractures
  • Deviated Nasal Septum

  • Balloon Sinuplasty

Sleep

Sleep is an essential part of preparing yourself for the day ahead. We’ve all experienced the difficulties that a lousy night of sleep can cause. For those with sleep disorders, achieving a good night of sleep can be even more challenging and even require medical intervention to be achieved.

  • Prescribe and Monitor CPAP
  • Sleep Apnea Testing
  • Sleep Apnea Surgery
  • Prescribe and monitor CPAP
  • Snoring
  • Sleep Apnea

Head & Neck

The head and neck are hosts to different types of glands that help us maintain our health. Much like other areas of the body, the head and neck and the glands within can experience infection, swelling, and cancer. This can affect the overall balance of our health and the systems that maintain it.

  • Thyroid Surgery
  • Parathyroid Surgery
  • Salivary Gland Surgery
  • Head and Neck Cancer Evaluation & Surgery

  • Enlarged Lymph Nodes
  • Abnormal Parathyroid Glands
  • Chronic Tonsils and Adenoid Infections
  • Endoscopic Inspection of the Throat and Voice Box (Flexible laryngoscopy)

Voice & Swallowing

Our voices can help us connect and communicate with the world around us. While speaking can seem easily achieved, it is really the work of several muscles and organs working together to achieve sound. If one of these muscles is strained or infected, the voice or swallowing can be impacted.

  • Acid Reflux Testing
  • Vocal Cord Tumors
  • Vocal Tremors and Spasms
  • Acid Reflux
  • Hoarseness
  • Difficulty Swallowing
