Your ears, nose, and throat have a connection with one another. Ever notice when you have an issue with one, you may also develop an issue with another? Therefore, if you’re looking for assistance for services with ear nose and throat in NYC, our ear nose throat (ENT) practice, headed by Dr. Dagan, can help.

At Dagan MD, we provide comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of ear, nose, throat, and sleep disorders in both adult and pediatric patients.

Our specialists can diagnose and manage diseases of the sinuses, larynx (voice box), oral cavity, and upper pharynx (mouth and throat), as well as structures of the neck and face. Otolaryngologists also diagnose, treat, and manage specialty-specific disorders and many advanced primary care problems in both children and adults. You are sure to find the right physician here to help diagnose and treat your condition.

Ear Nose and Throat Services

At our specialty practice, we offer treatment for bacterial and viral infections that affect your ears, nose, and throat. Our practice even provides preventative treatments to reduce your risk in the future.

Part of the services our doctor can perform include screenings to evaluate these areas. In some cases, we may use CT scans or other imaging to further examine you for problems.

Once we determine the nature of your issue, we may recommend a minimally invasive procedure to address the condition. Sometimes, you don’t even require a procedure, and we can treat your problem with medication and possibly even at-home techniques to help manage your condition.

Plus, we provide services, such as diagnostic testing and treatment for people of all ages, from the youngest to the oldest.

The Ears

One service our ear nose throat specialist offers is thorough ear cleanings. This prevents you from damaging the delicate parts inside of your ears by trying to use a cotton swab.

Although ear infections are most common in children, you may develop an ear infection at any given time. At our practice, we examine people of all ages for ear infections. The treatment process may consist of an antibiotic for a bacterial infection. However, if you have a child who suffers from recurring ear infections, we may recommend an ear tube insertion, medically known as a tympanostomy tube insertion.

Tinnitus, more commonly known as ringing in your ears, is another ear issue you may experience. The treatment process consists of diagnosing the root cause and treating it accordingly. The diagnostics may include a hearing test and even imaging. If our doctor suspects an underlying condition is to blame, you may receive a referral to a specialist to address the issue.

Hearing loss affects one in ten North Americans. Our unique domain as otolaryngologists is the treatment of ear disorders. At Dagan MD, we are trained in both the medical and surgical treatment of hearing, ear infections, earwax, balance disorders, ear noise (tinnitus), nerve pain, earaches, and facial and cranial nerve disorders. We treat balance disorders and vertigo that are commonly related to the inner ear.

When you search for those who specialize in ear nose throat in NYC, you’ll find physicians who offer care for issues like the following:

  • Deviated septum
  • Nasal allergies
  • Nasal polyps
  • Nasal blockage
  • Nasal congestion 

As a medical practice for ear nose and throat in NYC, we supply you with comprehensive screenings for nasal problems also. We may take a sample of the mucus from your nasal passageways or look inside of your nose using a fiber-optic light. Sometimes, we may recommend you undergo a CT or MRI to capture an image of the inside of your sinuses. 

The treatment process may include medication and at-home care. If you have recurring sinus infections, we may recommend you undergo balloon sinuplasty to free up space in your sinus cavity. 

Chronic sinusitis and rhinosinusitis are some of the most common health complaints in America. At Dagan MD, we manage the nose and sinuses with the latest technological breakthroughs including Balloon Sinuplasty, the latest technique in long-lasting relief from sinusitis. At Dagan MD, the inside of the nose is as important as the outside cosmetic appearance, when you get your rhinoplasty with us, we ensure your appearance doesn’t compromise function.
