This year marks ENT and Allergy Associates LLP’s (ENTA) 20-year milestone. The practice, which was founded in 1998 when several independent physician groups merged, has 200+ otolaryngologists and allergists and 115+ licensed audiologists. Every month, ENTA strives to exceed the needs of more than 80,000 patients in 42 tri-state locations.Each ENTA clinical location provides access to a full complement of services, including general adult and pediatric ENT and allergy, voice and swallowing, advanced sinus and skull base surgery, facial plastics and reconstructive surgery, disorders of the inner ear and dizziness, asthma, clinical immunology, diagnostic audiology, hearing aid dispensing, sleep, and CT services. As business continues to grow, the company looks to expand its geographical footprint and expects to serve 1 million patients in 2019.

In 2019, several ENTA locations are slated to open in Central New Jersey and the practice is considering expansion into Western Connecticut and Northern New York, bolstering physician recruitment efforts. From a leadership perspective, ENTA most recently implemented a new senior management structure that will align company business operations with core growth strategies. CEO Robert Glazer, who has been with the practice since inception, also has plans for continued growth in existing regions.

“The last five years has been a period of time where the practice has made significant financial investments in clinical and business technology and analytics,” says Glazer in a release. “By the same token, we have invested in upgrading personnel and developing training programs for the continued education of our physicians and staff. These investments have truly helped to throttle our growth, as physicians and patients recognize the commitment we have to quality healthcare and patient access. ENTA is now well-positioned for further expansion in the region. I’m proud of the brand we have developed and the accomplishments we have made in all of our 20 years.”

Robert Green, MD, president of ENTA, says, “As one of the original partners at ENTA, I am extremely grateful for our staff and our doctors in helping to make this milestone anniversary possible. As we move forward, our strategic vision and our growth will continue to enhance our ability to provide our patients with the finest ear, nose, throat, allergy, and audiology care possible.”
