Providing a diagnosis before beginning any treatment is crucial to a successful outcome. In addition to a careful review of the patients medical history and examination, we perform a variety of important in-office diagnostic procedures and tests. These include nasal endoscopy, allergy testing, nerve blocks, olfactory evoked potentials, acoustic rhinometry, electrogustometry and many other procedures and tests.
Diagnostic procedures and tests play a crucial role in the management of Smell and Taste Disorders. They are vital for identifying a specific Smell and Taste condition, disease stage, therapeutic response or the chance that a person will develop a condition in the future.
