Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery
In the Sinus Center, we aim to preserve and improve the function of your nose and sinuses. Our physicians and fellowship-trained specialists provide the latest evaluation and treatment options in order to determine the source of your sinus problems and find the most effective treatment plan for you.
Sinus symptoms are among the most common health conditions seen in the United States. When it comes to your nose and sinuses, knowing when to seek care is important.
For those who have nasal congestion consistent with a routine sinus infection, a visit to your primary care doctor should help relieve your symptoms. If you have constant sinus infections, sinus pressure, nasal obstruction, smell loss, or bleeding, we recommend seeing an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) specialist.
In this webinar, Benjamin Bleier, MD, discusses:
- How to manage your sinus and allergy symptoms at home
- Why so many people are talking smell loss during COVID-19
- When you should talk to your doctor about your nasal and sinus symptoms

Anyone who has had persistent sinus pressure for more than three months or has had more than four acute infections within one year should see a specialist.
When it comes to tasting your food, it’s a combination of taste and smell that gives you what we know as flavor.
Many people attribute sinus symptoms to a sinus infection, when that might not be the case. There is a difference between acute sinusitis (sinus infections) and chronic sinusitis.
Because sinus infections are frequently diagnosed, many patients are taking antibiotics unnecessarily. If there is no bacterial infection to treat, then antibiotics will not help you feel better.
