Ear Nose & Throat Consultants wants all patients to know we are taking every measure to continue to keep you safe and healthy. The health and well-being of our patients and our employees is our top priority. To better protect you from COVID-19 we are requiring all patients/employees in our office to wear a mask, promoting social distancing measures in the lobby and throughout the office, using contactless payment options, and enhancing our cleaning measures. As the situation around coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, I want to take a moment and share an update.

As of now we are open and operating per usual business hours for in-office visits, surgeries, and Telemedicine visits. We will continue to notify our patients of any changes and updates as they occur so we can best support any of your ENT healthcare needs during the pandemic. We appreciate your patience and assistance during this time, as we can continue to keep our patients and staff as healthy as possible.

All patient’s coming into the office, vaccinated or unvaccinated, will be required to wear a face mask. We ask that you continue to attend your appointment alone unless you are a minor or disabled; if either of these apply to you then you will be allowed to have a visitor accompany you to your appointment. Any patient under the age of 2 will not be required to wear a mask per CDC guidelines. If you have any concerns regarding this, please do not hesitate to give us a call before your appointment.

Please be aware for telemedicine visits we are using an internet-based services that include:  Doxy.me or Facetime. We would like our patients to know that Telemedicine is fairly straight forward and that we can bill your insurance just as we would for an office visit but, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to give us a call.

Our allergy clinic is currently open and operating with limited injection visits. If you have not restarted your injection therapy and would like to do so, please call our office at 402-778-5250 to discuss our current allergy schedule.  Patients who do sublingual immunotherapy (allergy drops) can continue this therapy per their usual scheduled. Please call us to reorder your drops. Once your order is complete, we will then give you a call to let you know, collect payment, and then mail your drops to you.

If you are experiencing a fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, new loss of sense of smell and taste, or body aches we ask that you call your primary care provider if you have questions on what actions you should take.

If you have additional questions regarding COVID-19, please contact one of the following:

  • Douglas County Health Department (402) 444-3400
  • Nebraska Department of Health & Human Services (402)552-6645 or dhhs.ne.gov
