Dr. Anwar is skilled and dedicated at his trade. He is thorough and compassionate and I felt so comfortable having him look at my sinus issues. He's a great listener and takes the time to explain everything in terms I understand. Most of all I appreciate that he did not push procedures or medications on me! I feel like he genuinely cared about my well being and I trust his opinion as he's extremely knowledgeable.

– Roya K.

I only spent 1 night in the hospital. I recovered at home! All is Good!! God bless all of you that helped us.”

Dr. Walgama was recently interviewed by Giddy for Thyroid Awareness Month.

Dr. Walgama says, "Most cases of thyroid cancer arise sporadically. It affects women more commonly than men, but it does affect both, [and] sometimes the very young, sometimes the elderly. Young people under the age of 55 are staged differently than older people and generally have an excellent prognosis.

Other risk factors, which don't come up that often, are a personal history of radiation exposure or a family history of thyroid cancer."

January is Thyroid Awareness Month
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped organ located below the Adam's apple (base of the neck/front of the throat). Most thyroid diseases are life-long and can be managed with medical attention. The thyroid is important because it releases and controls thyroid hormones that control the metabolism.

Patient says,
“Dr. Kochhar is an incredible surgeon who fixed my severely deviated septum and helped me breathe properly for the first time in my life. He is special because on top of being a skilled ENT and a Plastics surgeon, he also has the most patient and kind bedside manner that I haven’t encountered with others I’ve consulted with. He spent time to explain my condition and treatment plan in detail and took the extra measure to ensure I was feeling comfortable with everything. I’m 4 months post surgery and only wish that I had met him sooner.”

Reinke’s edema is the swelling of the vocal cords or a type of vocal fold polyp. When vocal cords are swollen, they cannot vibrate per usual which means the voice will sound different.

Symptoms may be:
- Raspy Voice
- Shortness of Breath

If you haven’t been hearing well as you used to, it could be the result of ear wax build-up. Some people’s ears produce so much ear wax that it doesn’t get expelled easily – instead, it builds up and hardens which can cause hearing problems.

Happy New Year! We are happy to care for you this year.

Did you know that normal day-to-day motions like chewing and talking allow earwax to be removed naturally? Using cotton swabs to clean your ears actually pushes the earwax deeper into the canal! Let earwax come out naturally to avoid it becoming impacted.
