A medical specialty focusing on conditions of the ear, nose, and throat and related structures of the head and neck.


The ENT services offered through Touchette Regional Hospital encompass medical and surgical management related to hearing, earaches, ear infections, nasal congestion, etc.

Most of the time, patients are referred to our otolaryngologists by their primary care provider if they need treatment as a result of the following:

  • Balance problems or dizziness
  • Chronic ear infections
  • Ear, nose, or throat birth defects, injuries, tumors, or nerve problems
  • Nasal congestion and nose bleeds
  • Sinus problems
  • Swimmer's ear
  • Tinnitus
  • Tonsil or adenoid infection
  • Voice or swallowing problems

At Touchette Regional Hospital, we employ ENTs who are credentialed in numerous health plans. The physicians, RNs, medical assistants, and clinical service representatives, as well as licensed physician assistants and certified nurse practitioners,  are proud to offer exceptional care tailored to your needs.

If you suffer from serious conditions involving your ear, nose, throat, head or neck, have it checked by your doctor. You can always ask for a referral to come see us. 

Our ENTs are located at Archview Medical Center, 2071 Goose Lake Road in Sauget just off Interstate 255 in St. Clair County.
