May is Better Hearing & Speech Month

May 1, 2023

Do you or someone you know have frequent infections, ear pain, hearing loss, sore throat, or snoring at night? Children often develop medical conditions that affect the ears, nose, and throat (ENT), and frequently miss school. They are unable to keep up with their studies while they are out, and can suffer social isolation. Adults with hearing loss may have difficulty communicating with others, leading to feelings of social isolation and exclusion. If you or someone you know is experiencing social isolation due to an ENT disease, it is important to seek treatment from an ENT specialist. Treatment options may include medication, surgery, or therapy to manage symptoms and improve quality of life. Visit our ENT Clinic at Children’s Surgical Centre (we treat adults as well as children) Monday-Friday 8AM-5PM. No appointment is needed, and we offer free or low-cost care for Cambodians.
