ENT and Allergy Associates (ENTA) and Northwell Health have created a unique clinical affiliation benefitting the residents of Nassau, Suffolk and Queens County. This teaming provides a seamless and patient friendly bridge between community based and academically based medical care, the first of its kind for Long Island. The ENTA/Northwell affiliation means that patients can begin their care in the comfort and familiarity of their neighborhood ENTA office, and be transferred--if needed—within only 24 to 48 hours to Northwell Health for treatment of complex ENT issues. Medical records are sent over immediately. Patients then return for aftercare treatment in their own communities.
