Comprehensive Diagnostic Process
Our team has decades of combined experience providing relief for patients. Throughout our years of service, we have performed countless sinus diagnostics to help identify the underlying cause of many sinus-related conditions, including sinus infections, deviated septa, nasal polyps, and more. This safe and painless assessment is performed in our office and doesn’t require any anesthetics. During your evaluation, our doctors may check for the following:
We begin by inspecting the surface of the nose. We make special note of any discoloration, such as redness. Our team will also identify any swelling, malformations, asymmetry, or other abnormalities.
Next, we’ll inspect the nasal cavities using a scope. Your doctors will be on the lookout for any malformations, such as polyps, lesions, or masses. We can also identify a deviated septum.
We may ask you to perform various breathing exercises to ensure no obstructions are blocking the airways.
