ENT and Allergy Associates®, LLP Substantially Increases its Office Size and Patient Service Capabilities on the East End of Long Island
Signs 10 Year Lease For Spacious, Expanded, Fully Renovated, State-of-the-Art Facility in Southampton; plans to consolidate East Hampton clinical location into new showcase space
Tarrytown, NY: March 24, 2014: ENT and Allergy Associates (ENTA) believes the East End of Long Island is a healthy place to practice medicine. And, a place that deserves to be as healthy as possible.
That's why, when ENTA—New York and New Jersey's premier ear, nose, throat, allergy, and audiology Practice—first began serving the patients of Riverhead, Westhampton, Hampton Bays, Quogue, Eastport, Remsenburg, Bridgehampton, Southampton, and East Hampton three years ago with locations in Riverhead, Southampton and East Hampton, it knew it was only the first step in a long term and deepening relationship with those deserving communities.
Today, they announced the second step. And it’s a big one.
The otolaryngology specialty practice, which also offers sub-specialty care in the fields of Laryngology, Rhinology, Skull Base Surgery, Facial Plastics, and Sleep Medicine performed by the 150+ physicians in its ranks, has just agreed to a new 10 year lease, effectively doubling the size of its clinical presence in Southampton.
In a complete renovation to its existing space at 365 Country Road in Southampton, ENTA has plans to design a cutting-edge 5,546 square foot clinical facility, which will be generously equipped with 6 ENT exam rooms, 2 audiology booths, a hearing aid dispensing room, and 4 allergy rooms. The Practice's current East Hampton office will merge into this one and the resulting spacious showcase facility will complement ENTA's present location in nearby Riverhead at 292 Shade Tree Lane (Aquebogue).
Most importantly, ENTA’s new office—the latest in their strategic initiative to either expand, upgrade, or relocate office sites for the benefits of their patients’ care—means greater convenience, enhanced comfort, and a more comprehensive and advanced menu of services with which to meet the expanding needs of the patient population of the East End of Suffolk County.
The new facility will also offer extended hours with expanded physician, audiology, and allergy staffing.
"We have been seeking the best way to extend and enhance our Southampton presence to more centrally and comprehensively serve East End patient needs for quite some time", noted ENTA CEO Bob Glazer, "and we are extremely pleased to have identified the right opportunity. It’s the best of both worlds...an address that remains familiar to our patients, but with clinical facilities and resources that are vastly improved and greater in scope".
“This expansion, renovation, and consolidation into one extraordinary office will surely serve the best interests of our deserving patients”, added Paul Kelly, MD, ENT Partner and Advanced Facial Plastics specialist in The Hamptons. “We are, in effect, now able to place all of our superb physicians into a single convenient, spacious, and state-of-the-art facility to ensure that our patients receive the best care with the highest level of comfort and convenience”.
The entire current physician roster will remain in place, including otolaryngologists Dr. Paul Kelly (fellowship trained in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery) ; Kevin Braat, MD; Paul Davey, MD; Eric Scarbrough, MD; Joel E. Portnoy, MD (fellowship-trained Laryngologist specializing in Voice and Swallowing); and Allergist/Immunologist Erin McGintee, MD. Working alongside them will be audiologists Jennifer Lohr-Seitz, MS, CCC-A; Emily Ward Au.D.; and Nicole Dornicik, Au.D., CCC-A, F-AAA. This will ensure that patients will always have available to them a full complement of valuable ear, nose, throat, allergy, and audiology services.
Dr. McGintee, Allergist/Immunologist noted, “Since joining ENT and Allergy, more and more patients have sought out our services. So it is particularly gratifying to offer a larger clinical location, longer hours, and increased staffing. We are truly delighted to be able to meet the needs and standards of our wonderful patients.”
