Patients who see Douglas Stanley, MD, and Jason Talmadge, MD, at UT Physicians Otorhinolaryngology-The Woodlands benefit from an office redesign that includes expanded open space and patient-friendly features.
“We took down walls to open up the waiting room and registration area so that patients have greater visibility and easier access to our front desk staff,” says Douglas Stanley, MD, assistant professor in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston. “There are no more windows between patients and staff, which makes it more welcoming and easier for patients to check in and check out.”
“We are now treating patients referred from even beyond the nearby Conroe, Spring, and The Woodlands areas. Our office redesign has allowed us to streamline the patient experience to support this growth,” says Dr. Talmadge, an assistant professor in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology at the medical school. “To further enhance and personalize the patient experience, we spend considerable time educating our patients and families.”
The practice offers comprehensive otorhinolaryngology services and refers very few patients to the department’s Texas Medical Center office. Dr. Stanley and Dr. Talmadge provide general ENT services for adults, adolescents, and children at Memorial Hermann-The Woodlands Medical Center. They performs minimally invasive, office-based procedures for the nose and sinuses, and treat thyroid and parathyroid disorders, salivary gland diseases, laryngeal disorders, ear infections, and tonsil and adenoid diseases, as well as conditions of the nose and paranasal sinuses.
Dr. Stanley also is skilled at hypoglossal nerve stimulation for patients with sleep apnea using the Inspire™ Sleep Apnea Innovation, a small implantable device that stimulates the hypoglossal nerve in patients who are intolerant of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) and bi-level positive airway pressure (BiPAP), and who do not have a complete blockage of the upper airway.
Dr. Talmadge is a rhinologist with special expertise in the treatment of sinus and nasal disorders, including medical and surgical treatments for sinusitis, nasal polyps, nasal obstruction, allergies, and tumors of the paranasal sinuses and skull base using minimally invasive approaches.
Both physicians work in conjunction with UTHealth Houston audiologist Nancy McLellan, AuD, to evaluate hearing loss, dizziness, tinnitus, and related conditions.
Clinic hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Plaza 3, located at 9200 Pinecroft, Suite 425. To schedule an appointment, call 713-486-6180 or visit www.ent4.me/the-woodlands.
