TARRYTOWN, N.Y., March 1, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New Jersey is home to a vast amount of vocal talent, ranging from Frank Sinatra to Bruce Springsteen. And now, thanks to ENT and Allergy Associates, LLP (ENTA), there will be even more medical care available to service that talent! And it's being accomplished by design, not accident.
Several years ago, ENTA created its Voice and Swallowing Division, offering a team of laryngology sub-specialists, expertly trained to handle issues specifically involving the voice, swallowing, and related problems and cancers. Today, the Practice -consisting of over 170 board certified physicians located in 43 clinical sites throughout New York and New Jersey - proudly announced that it was adding yet another Otolaryngologist/Laryngologist to its ranks: Amit Patel, M.D. Dr. Patel will serve patient needs in ENTA's Shrewsbury, New Jersey office.
Dr. Amit Patel, who originally hails from New Jersey, is a fellowship trained voice and swallowing specialist who earned his medical degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri and went on complete his residency at Rutgers University Medical School, located in the heart of the community he will now serve. Most recently, Dr. Patel served as a research fellow at St. Luke's/Roosevelt Hospital in New York City under the esteemed laryngologist Andrew Blitzer, M.D., D.D.S.
"Fellowship trained sub-specialists with clinical research expertise are a vital part of what gives our group its unique identity," noted Dr. Jonathan Aviv, Clinical Director of ENTA's Voice and Swallowing Group. "We are thrilled to welcome a colleague as qualified as Amit Patel and look forward to his perspective and expertise on treatment of conditions including acid reflux disease, dysphagia, esophageal cancer and care and maintenance of the professional voice."
Commented Dr. Farhad Chowdhury, laryngologist in ENTA's Woodbridge, New Jersey and Old Bridge, New Jersey offices, "Amit Patel, a recognized expert in voice and swallowing disorders, is a key addition to our New Jersey contingent of sub-specialist physicians. His decision to join us expands our ability to provide New Jersey patients with advanced diagnostic and therapeutic intervention that is timely and convenient. We are delighted that he has chosen to join ENTA."
Dr. Patel is the perfect fit to work alongside ENTA physicians he will be joining in our Shrewsbury office, including otolaryngologists Vin Prabhat, M.D., F.A.C.S., Darsit Shah, M.D., Michael Tavill, M.D., F.A.C.S., Philip J. Passalaqua, M.D. and Allergist/Immunologist Katherine Szema, M.D.
"We are now truly able to provide the most expansive array of ear, nose, throat, hearing and allergy services that our patients in Monmouth County, the Jersey Shore and the surrounding communities deserve", stated Dr. Vin Prabhat. "The addition of Dr. Patel to our Shrewsbury office, and our Practice, will allow us to service our patients better and more effectively."
