Illnesses that attack your nose, throat or ears can make you sniffle, cough, wheeze or feel just plain miserable. While some ear, nose and throat (ENT) conditions can be addressed by your primary care physician, there are some illnesses that are best handled by an ENT specialist with in-depth experience in diagnosing and treating these delicate structures.

That's just what you'll find at CGH Medical Center. Our ENT specialists can give you the help you need, and you won't have to leave northern Illinois for that expert care.
