Pediatric ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists from Allegheny General Hospital are now available for appointments at two suburban locations, bringing the best of pediatric ENT care close to home.
Farrel J. Buchinsky, MD, FACS, and J. Christopher Post, MD, PhD, FACS, of Allegheny Pediatric ENT Associates, are seeing patients at 500 Blazier Drive in Wexford, PA 15090, and at the West Penn Allegheny Outpatient Care Center in Peters Township, 160 Gallery Drive, McMurray, PA 15317.
Regarded as clinical leaders and research innovators in the field of pediatric otorhinolaryngology, Drs. Buchinsky and Post lead the way in treating pediatric ear, nose and throat problems, including the management of ear infections, snoring, tonsillitis, adenoiditis and sinusitis. Diagnostic services are also available for children with hearing loss and speech-language disorders. The physicians expect to begin offering surgical treatments at the Peters Township location later this year.
With publication of more than 160 peer-reviewed articles and 25 book chapters to their credit, Drs. Buchinsky and Post receive invitations from around the world to speak about their clinical practice and research. Both surgeons are fellows of the American College of Surgeons.
The surgeons are supported by a caring and personable team that includes Elizabeth Olayer, PA-C, Physician Assistant, Marilyn Smith, Medical Assistant, and Ginnie Turner, Patient Care Coordinator.
Appointments are available at the Peters Township office and Wexford office as well as at Allegheny General Hospital on the North Side by calling 412.359.3445.
