Summer in Long Beach, NY

Ah summer! With the boardwalk under constructions many of my patients have taken to going directly to the beach. As the summer sun beats down, be sure to remember that dust and debris is still floating around town. With construction on going, pulverized sheet rock, foundation material and insulation material is flying around.

When tiny particles of dust remain in your nose inflammation can occur. This swelling leads to sinus drainage problems and sinus infections can occur. If you are experiencing headaches, facial pressure or chronic fatigue it may be sinusitis. We can help! Call our office for a thorough sinus/nasal evaluation and together we will work to your achieving a better quality of life.

Why Long Beach, NY needs Long Beach Hospital — What every Long Beach resident needs to know about summertime ENT emergencies

Long Beach Hospital is still closed nine months after hurricane Sandy. In order to get our voice heard in Albany, we must get on the phone and start signing petitions advocating for the re-opening of our medical center. Unless we work hard, together, the legislators in Albany will continue to put up obstacles and our local hospital will remain closed.

As an ENT specialist, I see numerous emergencies where minutes matter.

You deserve it and our entire Long Beach community deserves it! So get on the phone and let the legislators in Albany know that as a barrier island we need a local medical facility. Every voice counts!

Allergies Hits Hard in Garden City and Long Beach, NY

The sun is shining and five seconds the sky gets cloudy and it rains.
