Allergy Sinus Voice is an ear, nose and throat specialty practice operated under the direct supervision of Shaista Husain, M.D. As an Otolaryngologist, head and neck, facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Husain has developed the technical and clinical skills required in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of diseases and disorders of the head and neck.
The evaluation of suspected nasal allergies is initiated with a detailed assessment of the patientís history and thorough physical examination utilizing diagnostic nasal endoscopy. If a diagnosis of nasal allergies is found, proper environmental control strategies are discussed with the patient. Furthermore, active infections or structural abnormalities witnessed on the endoscopy are addressed and indentified as to their contributing roles in the disease process. Treatment options include the use of topical therapies, surgical management of refractory disease, and immunotherapy. Immunotherapy is uniquely tailored to be patient specific after allergy testing has determined the specific allergen(s) resulting in the patientís symptoms.
In her ENT practice, Dr. Husain spends about 50% of her time treating patients with sinus diseases, sleep apnea, and voice disorders. Many of her patients with chronic sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, and otitis media show signs of nasal allergies.
