Ear Nose Throat

As with most medical issues, an evaluation by a licensed physician is the first step. Dr. Janning will address your issues and provide a medical evaluation to determine the diagnosis. Treatment options will be discussed. The treatments may include medication, surgery, lifestyle changes, or a short procedure that can be done here in the office. Often times follow up is needed to ensure the symptoms have decreased or resolved and the issue is managed.
