Rush Excellence in ENT
- Individualized care, team approach: When you have common or complex ear, nose and throat issues, our teams of specialists come together to address all your needs. We work with specialists in many areas, including allergy, gastroenterology, medical oncology, neurology, neurosurgery, pulmonology and radiation oncology. For you, that means you're getting coordinated, personalized care with your quality of life at the center.
- First program of its kind in Chicago: Sinusitis, allergies and asthma, chronic diseases that afflict millions of people, are often interrelated — not only do many people suffer from more than one of these conditions, but each condition can affect the severity of the others. You're likely to experience a combination of symptoms, including persistent sinus pain and pressure, breathing problems, sleep apnea and coughing, that can severely affect your quality of life. That's why we created the Rush Sinus, Allergy and Asthma Center, the first of its kind in the Chicago area and one of only a handful nationally.
- Clinical trials and groundbreaking therapies: Our physicians are leaders in cutting-edge clinical and basic science research, including clinical trials, aimed at improving treatment for a variety of conditions and shaping the future of ENT care. So you may have access to treatments and therapies that are not yet widely available.
- Appointments to fit your schedule: Our doctors see patients at multiple locations in Chicago and the suburbs, with early morning, evening and weekend hours to accommodate your busy schedule. We can typically see you within 1-2 business days.
