Sneezers and Wheezers Lets Talk Sinus and Allergy

Tuesday, March 01, 2011 - New Milford, CT

On Thursday, March 24, 2011 Ear, Nose Throat Specialist Timothy Kaiser, MD will provide a community health forum entitled “Sneezers and Wheezers: Lets Talk Sinus & Allergy.” This program will be held at the New Milford Hospital Robison Conference Rooms.

Most of us look forward to the many signs of spring – with the budding of the trees, the flowers springing from the ground and the grass turning green. But, for many other people, these wonderful acts of nature bring a season of wheezing, runny noses, breathing problems, itchy eyes, and various other allergy symptoms. The media continues to promote the over-the-counter and prescription “cures” for these discomforts, but the fact is – not all are effective or safe for general everyday use.

Join Dr. Kaiser as he discusses the causes, symptoms, risk factors and treatments for allergies and sinus conditions. He will provide information on the many seasonal and non-seasonal allergens such as pollen, mold, pet dander, dust and insect bites. His lecture includes information on an in-office Baloon Sinuplasty procedure now available.

Pre-registration is requested on the hospital website,
