Ear, Nose and Throat Center (ENT)

One stop center for ENT care and treatment for adults and children

The CMC Ear, Nose, and Throat Center was established in 1999 to serve as the first “one sitting, one setting” diagnostic unit of ear, nose, and throat problems in a private health care establishment. It has since provided primary treatment of common ear, nose, and throat ailments.

Within the center is the first-of-its-kind Voice and Swallowing Clinic, set up to address the needs of a specific group of patients: voice professionals like teachers, preachers, and singers, as well as dysphagic or post-stroke individuals. Staffed by trained otolaryngologist and speech language pathologists, the clinic integrates specialist medicine and rehabilitation in a multidisciplinary, integrative fashion.

We welcome patients to this CMC center with our unique brand of care combined with state-of-the-art technology to diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate related disorders of the ear, nose, and throat (ENT).
