Ears, Nose and Throat (ENT)

Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose, and Throat or ENT care) constitutes a specialized branch of medicine focused on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders affecting the head and neck.

These interconnected systems within the human body play a crucial role in your sensory perceptions, communication, and overall well-being. From hearing and balance to breathing and vocalization, the health of the ENT region is integral to daily functioning.

At Kimball Health Services, Dr. William O. Dickey addresses a wide spectrum of conditions that can significantly impact your quality of life. Disorders in this region can:

  • Affect sensory functions
  • Lead to chronic discomfort
  • Cause impaired communication
  • Compromise vital functions like breathing

Dr. Dickey offers accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment to ensure the preservation of these essential functions.

Comprehensive ENT Evaluation and Diagnosis

ENT conditions often manifest in complex ways, and a comprehensive evaluation process is essential to properly diagnose your condition. At Kimball Health Services, our ENT diagnosis process involves a detailed examination of the ears, nose, throat, and related structures. 

We employ state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, such as endoscopes and advanced imaging, to enable our specialists to gain a thorough understanding of the underlying issues. Whether you suffer from hearing loss, sinus disorders, or a throat condition, a precise diagnosis guides our specialists on personalized treatment strategies for you.


Allergies are a commonly occurring ailment and can have a tangible impact on your daily life. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), allergies are the 6th most common cause of chronic illness in the United States. 

Whether it's a reaction to pollen in the air or a particular food, allergies can be pretty impactful, ranging from minor discomfort to severe, life-threatening reactions. 

At Kimball Health Services, we are committed to providing expert guidance to test and treat allergies. Our team of primary care providers will work with you to develop a treatment plan or, when needed, refer you to a specialist.

Sleep Issues

Sleep issues or sleep disorders cause changes in your sleep duration, patterns, and quality of sleep. Sleep disorders can leave you feeling tired and without energy even after a regular night’s rest. 

Sleep disorders constitute a spectrum of conditions that disrupt regular sleep patterns, whether stemming from underlying health issues or heightened stress levels.

In the United States alone, over one-third of adults claim they get less than 7 hours of sleep within a 24-hour cycle.

While occasional sleep disturbances are commonplace, persistent disruptions that affect your daily life may indicate a sleeping disorder. The impact of insufficient sleep extends to compromised energy levels, mood alterations, diminished concentration, and overall health deterioration.

Resolving the primary issue through appropriate treatment can often alleviate sleep-related challenges in cases where sleep issues may indicate an underlying medical or mental health condition. 

At Kimball Health Services, we recognize that prompt diagnosis and intervention are important when dealing with sleep disorders. This is because these conditions have the potential to impact professional performance, strain relationships, and impede the ability to engage in routine activities.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), sinusitis impacts about 11.9% of adult Americans annually. 

Sinusitis manifests as an inflammation of the sinus cavities. When these air-filled spaces connecting to the nose and throat are inflamed, they can disrupt normal mucus drainage and lead to pain and potential infections. 

At Kimball Health Services, we provide comprehensive diagnostic and treatment options for sinusitis to guide you toward relief.
