Sinusitis, or long-term problems with sinus infections or discomfort, is one of the most common problems seen in ENT practices. Experts estimate that 37 million Americans have problems with sinusitis.
The physicians at Auburn ENT Services have treated thousands of patients with sinus disorders. They are skilled in minimally invasive sinus surgeries, involving fewer incisions and less recovery time. If you require a procedure or surgery we will explain the procedure, answer your questions and give you information about what to expect after the surgery.

The physicians at Auburn ENT Services diagnose and treat a wide range of disorders in children, most commonly tonsil and adenoid problems, ear infections, allergies and repeated respiratory disorders. Treatment for these problems may include the placement of pressure-equalizing (PE) tubes in the ears to prevent fluid build-up and reduce the number of ear infections.
Some children may need surgery to remove tonsils or adenoids that are frequently infected. The surgery often can be performed on an outpatient basis and recovery is usually complete within a couple of weeks. Our staff will explain any procedures necessary for you or your child and will be glad to answer your questions. We work with children, their parents and pediatricians and family physicians to ensure that young patients get the most appropriate treatment.
Voice and Swallowing Disorders
Voice and swallowing disorders range from children who have speech problems from voice abuse, cleft palate or other congenital problems, to adults such as teachers, attorneys, or performers who overuse their voices. Singers with voice problems present unique issues because they often need to perform while sick. Auburn ENT Services offers expert treatment for these problems. Swallowing disorders, often a result of stroke or other conditions, may be treated with medication, surgery or speech therapy.
Our highly qualified physicians will explain your treatment options and answer your questions. If you have an ear, nose or throat problem, we can help you. We look forward to serving you.
Audiometry is a test that measures how well you can hear. An Audiologist, a person trained to identify and help manage hearing problems, performs the test. Audiometry is often performed when it is suspected that a person may have hearing loss. The testing requires a person to wear headphones while sitting in a soundproof booth. The Audiologist will sit outside the booth and operate the audiometry equipment and test each ear separately.
Types of Audiometry are:
- Pure tone audiometry
- Speech audiometry
- Bekesy audiometry
- Acoustic impedance audiometry/Tympanometry
- Evoked response audiometry
Our audiometry department is located on the lower level at Auburn Memorial Hospital.
In the event you need a surgery or admission to the hospital, Auburn Ear, Nose & Throat Services is affiliated with Auburn Community Hospital.
