Ear, Nose & Throat Consultants
Pediatric and adult health care excellence, timely appointments
Being voted “Top Docs” by other doctors 15 times is an honor and a recommendation. Ear, Nose & Throat Consultants have earned the designation by being available, accessible, and implementing medical “best practices.” Their goal is to surpass medical excellence benchmarks to make patients happy and healthy.
“Good communication with the patients’ health care providers is required for excellence in health care,” says Dr. Jeffrey S. Weingarten, one of three specialists in the practice. “We demand excellence when we care for a patient.”
Their office philosophy of “Patients First and Health Care Excellence” is the reason Dr. Weingarten and his partners, Dr. C. Bart Dickson and Dr. Michael E. Stone, continue to thrive in four office locations — Southfield, Novi, Livonia, and St. Clair Shores — more than 40 years after the practice was founded by well-known ENT specialist Dr. David M. Davis.
“Convenience is an important part of best practices medical care these days, and we provide that with our multiple locations and same-day visits,” Dr. Weingarten says.
That means a patient with an urgent problem is seen the same day, and all patients are seen within one week.
“What separates our group is university-level care in the community, with urgent appointments available,” Dr. Dickson says, adding, “and that’s determined by the patient.”
The “university-level care” Dr. Dickson mentions means the partners are teachers. They have academic appointments at and teach resident doctors-in-training from St. John-Providence Health System and the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine.
In addition, the practice’s doctors are on staff at Providence, Providence Park, Beaumont, St. Mary’s, and DMC hospitals, making the best patient care and technology available to their patients.
That’s important, because these board-certified doctors treat all aspects of pediatric and adult ear, nose, and throat care using evidence-based clinical indications from the American Academy of Otolaryngology.
The two most common pediatric disorders they treat are ear infections and tonsil problems, but their comprehensive pediatric care includes newborns, as well.
“That’s one of the wonderful things about our practice,” Dr. Weingarten says. “We have patients ranging from newborns to my oldest patient, who is 104.” With almost half their patients being children, the office staff respects the needs of families and individuals.
Adults may need care for something as common as impacted earwax or swimmer’s ear to more complex issues such as thyroid problems, dizziness, sleep apnea, head and neck cancer, or a hearing disorder.
For those with hearing problems, the practice offers comprehensive care including medical and audiologic services and diagnosis, surgery when indicated, and hearing rehabilitation (there are six audiologists on staff). Reasonably priced hearing aids are available through its in-office Quality Hearing Aid Center.
Since only a physician can diagnose hearing problems, patients at Ear, Nose & Throat Consultants know that all possible medical causes and treatments are considered. In terms of convenience, patients can have all of their hearing needs met in one location and, if appropriate, they can walk out the door with the best national brand hearing aid.
“We’re on the forefront of hearing aid technology because we’re on the forefront of the medical causes of hearing loss,” Dr. Stone says. “If you don’t need a hearing aid, you shouldn’t be wearing one.”
In addition to comprehensive hearing care, the practice offers a full range of throat and voice treatment for professional singers, actors, clergy, dentists, teachers, and bankers. A full voice lab is on-site, equipped with the technology used with biofeedback to help with professional and nonprofessional voice problems.
If a patient needs follow-up care from a speech therapist, the doctors can make a referral to a professional in the community.
When they’re not caring for patients, these doctors attend medical meetings and participate in hospital, state, and national medical societies to keep current on the latest their medical specialty has to offer.
The practice is designated a “specialty-centered medical home,” which requires a high level of excellence and has third-party review and certification.
