How can we help you? Lots of ways

Onslow ENT practices otolaryngology, which means we provide diagnosis and medical solutions for conditions of the head and neck. This means we are trained, staffed and equipped to handle a very wide variety of disorders. Below is a summary of conditions you might want to consider seeing us for. If you have questions about your symptoms, just call us at (910) 219-3377 and we'll be glad to provide a consultation.


There are a number of conditions that can lead to hearing pain or loss. Onslow ENT is prepared to help address everything from routine issues such as ear infections and aches, to more complex problems such as tinnitus. Just a partial list:

  • Cholesteatoma
  • Ear Tubes
  • Chronis Otitis Media
  • Ear Infections
  • Hyperacusis
  • Otosclerosis
  • Swimmer's Ear
  • Tinnitus

One of our primary skills at Onslow ENT is treatment of the nasal cavity and sinuses, and for good reason: each year nearly 35 million people will suffer from chronic sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses). Here are just some of the conditions we can address, including those of the mouth:

The throat is a pathway vital for a variety of life-dependent and quality-of-life needs. Talking, singing, breathing and swallowing are all made possible by a healthy throat. An otolaryngologist can help ease or eliminate disorders of the throat, larynx (your voice box) and the esophagus (upper aero-digestive tract). Some specific issues:

  • Laryngeal Cancer
  • Nodules, Polyps, and Cysts
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease
  • Professional Voice Help
  • Tonsillitis
  • Adenoids
  • Vocal Cord Paralysis
  • Hoarseness
  • Sore Throats
  • Swallowing Disorders

Think of all the functions in this area: sight, smell, eating, hearing and more. Apart from vital functionality, think of the importance of the appearance of ones face. Otolaryngology is totally focused on the head and neck area, helping to diagnose, treat and manage the health of all related components. Below is a partial list of needs and services we offer:

Hearing aids are offered for adults only at this time. We dispense hearing aids for self-pay patients and VA patients with documented hearing loss. Hearing aids are dispensed by a licensed audiologist.


  • Comprehensive hearing examinations including behavioral audiometric testing, Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR), Immittance testing, and Otoacoustic emissions testing.
  • ABR testing is completed for natural sleep for newborns and can be completed under anesthesia for infants. This is a procedure that measures the response of the hearing nerve when a sound is presented.
  • Immittance testing is a procedure that provides information about the health of the eardrum and the middle ear.
  • Otoacoustic emissions testing is a procedure that sends sound into the ear through a small ear tip and then measures the sound reflected back.
