Allergic rhinitis (also known as allergies) and sinusitis are two of the most common diseases affecting millions of Americans each year. Both conditions cause very similar symptoms and are often hard to distinguish. In addition, recent studies show allergies have a direct impact on sinusitis. Because of the overlapping symptoms and connection between the two conditions, it is important to receive a correct diagnosis and treatment plan from a physician.
Dr. Gould is has more than 20 years of experience diagnosing and treating these conditions.
