St. Augustine Ear, Nose & Throat
"Our goal is to get you back to your healthy, active lifestyle as quickly as possible."
When it comes to selecting an ear, nose and throat doctor, your instincts tell you to choose a doctor that provides complete services at one location. Naturally, this saves you time and allows your entire family to receive comprehensive patient care. For the past decade, Dr. Kalpana DePasquale and her well-trained staff have been providing a broad range of in-office procedures with excellent outcomes for ENT patients in St. Augustine, Palm Coast and Palatka. Once your condition has been accurately diagnosed, our specialist will discuss different treatment options with you and develop a customized care plan based on your specific needs.
Minimally-Invasive Balloon Sinuplasty
Do you have difficulty breathing, recurring chronic sinusitis, sleep apnea or nasal blockage? Previously, balloon sinuplasty had to be performed in the operating room. In 2007, Dr. DePasquale became the first and is still the only doctor in St. Augustine to offer this minimally-invasive procedure in her office. She has performed hundreds of successful in-office surgeries. As an International Master Trainer for Acclarent, she is routinely involved in educating and training fellow Otolaryngologists on how to use this revolutionary technology.
Dizziness & VNG Balance Testing
Ear pain and dizziness can be symptoms of more serious problems. If our examination of your ears indicates an ear disorder that requires specialized care, we will address it accordingly. St. Augustine Ear, Nose & Throat treats problems as simple as earwax buildup and as complex as chronic ear disease, or a damaged or perforated eardrum. For patients with balance disorders, dizziness and tinnitus, we have onsite VNG testing for eye movement analysis.
Dr. DePasquale specializes in voice disorders and is currently the only ENT physician in St. Augustine, FL to offer three revolutionary exams:
- Transnasal Esophagoscopy - used to examine the esophagus and other structures of the throat.
- Functional Endoscopic Evaluation - helps evaluate the structure and function of your throat during swallowing.
- Videostroboscopy of the Larynx - uses a strobe light to allow visualization of vocal fold motion.
Our video stroboscope magnifies a view of the vocal cords and allows Dr. DePasquale to see them in slow motion. We also have an onsite speech pathologist for complete "physician-supervised" patient care.
Hearing Aid Specialists
The hearing specialists at St. Augustine Ear, Nose & Throat will conduct a state-of-the-art hearing test to determine the exact nature of your hearing loss and to determine if hearing instruments are appropriate for you. If needed, one of our on-staff, state-licensed hearing instrument dispensers will recommend a hearing device that best fits your lifestyle and budget. We offer a 30-day trial period for all behind-the-ear, in-the-ear and in-the-canal hearing aids.
Pediatric Ear, Nose & Throat Doctor
In addition to caring for adults, Dr. DePasquale can also treat pediatric issues. Dr. DePasquale's warm and friendly communication skills can ease kids' fears about going to the doctor and make their visit a positive experience. From infants to teenagers, your child's care is in excellent hands at St. Augustine ENT. We are uniquely qualified to diagnose and treat conditions of the head and neck, ears, nose and throat no matter the patient's age. In addition, the ENT testing and minimally-invasive surgical procedures your family may need are provided on site.
