“At Primary Health ENT our goal is to help our patients achieve the best possible results. We do this by taking a thoughtful, systematic approach to our care so that the patient’s quality of life improves quickly,” explains Matthew Mors, D.O., Primary Health ENT Specialist.

Every year, Dr. Mors and Scott care for thousands of patients dealing with various issues related to the ears, nose and throat. Here are the top 3 reasons patients need an ENT specialist:

1. Chronic sinusitis. Chronic sinusitis is long-term inflammation of the sinuses, which are the air-filled spaces in the bones of the face and skull around the nose.  Symptoms may include congestion, facial pain or pressure, headache, and a reduced sense of smell.  It typically lasts 12 weeks or longer.  An ENT evaluation is necessary for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

2. Deviated nasal septum. A deviated septum is one that is off-center, causing a narrowed nasal passage on one side. The condition can cause difficulty breathing, nosebleeds, and difficulty breathing during sleep. This condition may be treated with steroid nasal sprays or devices such as adhesive strips to open the nasal passageways. In some cases, surgery may be needed to correct and reposition the septum.

3. Nasal Polyps. Nasal polyps are soft and painless growths that develop on the lining of the nasal passages or sinuses.  They can cause symptoms like nasal congestion, runny nose, and a reduced sense of smell. An ENT provider may work to treat this condition with medicine or, in some cases, minimally invasive surgery.

Our ENT team is dedicated to helping patients find symptom relief and solutions for all types of ear, nose, and throat disorders. For more information or to make an appointment, please call 208-947-1947.
