Smoking is a major cause of health problems in America. It is the leading cause of preventable death in the United States, with more than 480,000 deaths each year. Additionally, it is the leading cause of a number of diseases, and quitting smoking can actually reduce the risk or those diseases. Now, a new study has shown that if sinusitis patients quit smoking, they will see their condition improve, too.
CEENTA is known for premier health care throughout the Carolinas. Not only do we offer top-notch eye and ENT care, but we offer a continuity of care between our services. That means that doctors from our eye department can refer patients to doctors from our ENT department without having to send these patients to outside medical organizations, and vice versa. In fact, many times they don’t even have to go to a different office.
Since 1923, CEENTA has cared for the eyes, ears, noses, and throats of the residents of Charlotte and beyond. As an active member of the community, we want our patients to be able to use their senses to enjoy the city we call home.

CEENTA ENT doctors Hunter Hoover, MD, and Darrell Klotz, MD, were on the Charlotte Smarty Pants podcast to talk about the differences between colds and allergies.
