Children Recognize Speech Before They Can Talk

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Nov 9, 2018 3:34:55 PM

We see many young children, between the age of 1 and 3 years old, for hearing testing at Advanced Audiology. While it may seem young, this is the age range when parents and pediatricians start to notice speech and language delays in children. And with any speech and language concerns in children, the first thing clinicians recommend is a hearing test. 

Audiologist, Jocelyn Dore of Advanced Specialty Care, illustrates how and why hearing loss can impact a child's speech and language development if left untreated and why early intervention is so important.

Your Flu Questions Answered

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Oct 24, 2018 12:46:19 PM

It’s that time of the year again, where cough and cold season picks up. Allergies and asthma go hand in hand and those symptoms are often made worse as viruses, such as the flu, are spread. For those with asthma, like many of our patients, they are at especially high risk for flu complications and even in those without, the flu can still be deadly.

As we head into flu season, Allergy & Asthma Specialist, Dr. Yogen Dave, answers some of the most common questions our patients ask about the flu and how to avoid it.

When is flu season?
Flu season typically starts in October, peaks in the winter, between December to February, but can run as late as May. The flu can be a debilitating disease, and unfortunately deadly as well. The CDC estimates that over 10 thousand people annually die from the flu, as well as leading to hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations yearly.

Following Mohs Surgery, Consider Involving a Plastic Surgeon

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Oct 18, 2018 4:33:47 PM

The threat of skin cancer isn't just limited to summer months. For our dermatologists and plastic surgeons, we treat patients with skin cancer year-round.

While there are different treatment options for patients, such as a plastic surgeon removing the lesion or having Mohs surgery by a dermatologist, an important and often unthought of consideration, is how the wound will be closed after skin cancer is removed. 

Dr. Soni, Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeon, recently performed a wound closure on a patient's face after they underwent Mohs surgery from a local dermatologist. Schedules were coordinated between the two doctors in order to ensure that the patient could be seen by Dr. Soni immediately after the Mohs surgery.

Fall Allergy Tips: Don't Let Your Symptoms Pile Up

Posted by Advanced Specialty Care on Oct 4, 2018 4:28:20 PM

Just when you thought the crisp air of fall would bring an end to your allergies, you find yourself sneezing and coughing all over again.

The primary culprit of fall allergies is ragweed pollen. Though the ragweed plant only lives one season, it packs a powerful punch. A single plant can produce up to 1 billion pollen grains. Because of the light weight of the grains, they're easily carried through the air.
