Our ENT Services
ENT services include:
Airway and Breathing DisordersNoisy breathing (stridor), hoarseness, and unusual breathing are reasons for further evaluation by a specialist. An evaluation, including laryngoscopy, can help determine the cause and management options for conditions affecting the upper airway and throat.
Snoring and Sleep ApneaSnoring may be an indication of obstructed breathing and a sign of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA is characterized by multiple episodes of breathing pauses or reduction in airway, due to upper airway narrowing or collapse. This disrupts the natural sleep cycle, which creates problems with a child’s cognitive function, academic performance, and behavior.
Ear and Hearing ConditionsWe offer medical and surgical treatment of chronic ear conditions. Pressure equalization tubes are often recommended when a child experiences repeated middle ear infections or has hearing loss caused by the persistent presence of middle ear fluid. Also offered are hearing evaluations (age appropriate) including air conduction, bone conduction, speech reception, and word recognition testing through behavioral observation, visual reinforcement, conditioned play, and traditional audiology methods.
Nasal and Sinus ConditionsSurgery is sometimes necessary for chronic sinusitis to remove physical obstructions, if medical treatment fails. The type of surgery is chosen to best suit the patient and the disease. Recurrent or frequent nosebleeds and nasal fractures also may need to be evaluated, and sometimes require surgical intervention. Adenoid removal due to recurrent infections and/or difficulty breathing is also offered.
Voice and Swallowing DisordersAn assessment and evaluation, including diagnostics and appropriate referrals, can be managed; however, we are not a treatment center for voice and swallowing disorders.
Tonsillitis and Adenoid HypertrophyRemoval of the tonsils may be recommended if there are recurrent infections despite antibiotic therapy, and / or difficulty breathing due to enlarged tonsils. Different types of surgical procedures for tonsillectomies are offered.
He is the first doctor to finally figure out what was wrong with my son. Ever since my son saw him he has been a new child. Other ENT doctors didn’t even take the time. So very thankful for him and his great staff. So helpful and kind.

From our first appointment at ENT for Kids to the most recent appointment, I have always had a great experience. Our concerns are always heard and every question is always answered. Unlike many other doctors, Dr. Garner and his staff never rush through appointments to get another patient in.
Dr. Garner and his staff are absolutely amazing. He brought so much comfort to us and relief for my daughter. Thank you and I recommend this place to anyone I know who needs an awesome ENT.
