There are many health care clinics available, though very few that provide high quality care while protecting your dollars. At Midwest Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists, we understand and believe that patients deserve to receive the best value for their loved ones. Our record of providing the highest level of care at the greatest value is proven by our acceptance of awards over the past several years for great patient experience, fulfilling needs, and all at the best value. At Midwest Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists we provide patients with a cumulative review of their condition, discuss treatment options, associated costs, and decide together how to manage and relieve symptoms.
Exceeding High Quality Care at the Best Value
Midwest Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists is an independent physician-owned practice with the ability to select highly educated, well-experienced providers that allow us to exceed levels of health care at an individual level. Many of the larger health ENT corporations’ providers are only able to utilize the services underneath that of their own building. These other corporations also use hospital-based billing practices that often result in high healthcare costs; often almost three times what independent non-hospital based providers cost. This means tests and exams ordered outside hospital-based clinics usually cost less. Midwest Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists healthcare providers are not obligated to use any one source, therefore helping you select the best treatment plan for you and your needs. For those of our patients who require surgical treatment, our providers have privileges at a range of high quality facilities that include our physician-owned Midwest Surgery Center as well as rights at other facilities including Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, Gillette Children’s Specialty Care Hospital, HealthEast, and Allina. At Midwest Ear, Nose & Throat Specialists, we work together with you to determine your appropriate treatment plan.
