Dr. Mendy Maccabee treats Tonsillitis in Hood River
Most commonly seen in children, a single episode of tonsillitis does not need surgery or drastic treatment. However, recurrent episodes of painful sore throat, difficulty swallowing, voice changes, fevers and inflammation of the glands of the back of the throat can require medications and sometimes surgery to cure. Dr. Mendy will examine your entire mouth and tongue, adenoids, tonsils, and thyroid gland to determine the cause of pain and the best treatment.
