Otolaryngology (ENT)

Otolaryngology (ENT)

The head is home to four of your five senses. Three of those — sound, smell and taste — can be damaged by health problems in the ear, nose or throat. Problems in these areas can also affect your voice or ability to swallow.

An ear, nose or throat problem can make you feel frustrated and worried. We are here to help you manage hearing loss, communication challenges or changes to the senses. Otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat or ENT doctors) at Leon Medical Centers and our contracted specialists want to help you enjoy all the sights, sounds, scents and flavors that you’re able to enjoy.

We work as one team, covering all of Leon Medical Centers. We coordinate your care with your primary care provider and other specialists.

You may receive all your ear, nose and throat care — from preventive tests and screenings to diagnosis and treatment — right here. One thing that stands out about ENT treatment at Leon is the way you are treated. You’re welcomed at the door, greeted in the lobby and, if needed, escorted to your doctor’s office or lab. We’ll even drive you to and from appointments for free.

Here, you are part of our family.

Conditions We Treat

We treat many common and complex health problems that affect the head and neck areas. These include:

  • Deviated septum
  • Ear-related balance disorders

  • Loss of smell
  • Nose-related breathing problems
  • Tinnitus
  • Throat injuries
  • Tonsil infections
  • Voice or swallowing problems

Cancer Prevention and Care

Many head and neck cancers are caused by using tobacco products for a long time. Our team is trained to screen for head and neck cancers and can work with you to make lifestyle changes to lower your cancer risk.

It can be scary to be diagnosed with cancer. If you or a loved one is faced with a cancer diagnosis, we’re here to help. You can count on the team at Leon Medical Centers.

We work hand-in-hand with our team of oncologists and radiologists to offer coordinated cancer care. Our doctors will review your diagnosis and explain your choices for cancer treatments. That way, you can make the decision that’s best for you. If you need to see other specialists, we’ll coordinate those appointments and will be glad to drive you to them as well.

Our otolaryngology team, urgent care centers and diagnostics department share the same electronic health record. This helps our team work better together on your plan of care. It’s also accessible if you need care while traveling to another city, state or country.
