The field of Otolaryngology offers perhaps the best opportunities in healthcare to positively impact the health of patients of both genders and all ages. Some of the most common human ailments from the ear infections of babies, to nasal sinus and allergy symptoms of older children and adults, and extending to age related disorders such as hearing loss in the elderly are all encompassed in Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose & Throat). At CornerStone, we have a group of active and up to date physicians who cover all these ailments and do so with a focus on excellence and compassion.

Rick Gillespie, MD, explains when a patient should seek the care of an otolaryngologist (ear nose and throat physician).

Outpatient surgical options can be anywhere from a 20 minute sinus procedure to an hour-hour and 15 minute sinus procedure.
