Joanna Mercado, LVN, Supervisor

We are committed to providing compassionate care of the whole person in a relaxing, welcoming environment. Some of the ailments we provide treatment for, as well as the services performed are:

• Hoarseness/ Globus sensation/ Throat Pain = Nasopharyngoscopy; a thin endoscopy scope that is guided through the nose down the throat to better visualize the throat anatomy

• Tongue Tie = Frenulectomy; a small quick procedure that involves excising the tight tissue connecting the tongue to the floor of mouth in order to improve tongue mobility

• Lower lip mass (Mucocele)= Lower lip excision; excising the mass carefully with a scalpel which may need stitches to help with wound healing

• Fluid Behind TM/ Eustachian Tube Dysfunction = Myringotomy with tubes; insertion of a PE tube into the tympanic membrane (inner ear) to alleviate fluid or ear pressure

• Nasal Fracture = Closed Nasal Fracture Reduction; manually adjusting nasal septum to original placement
