New clinic opens in Bellevue for ear, nose and throat care

Nebraska Medicine ear, nose and throat specialists have opened a new clinic on level one of the Bellevue Health Center. It's a move designed to offer greater access for patients in the area who suffer from allergies, sinus problems, dizziness or hearing loss.

"I'm thrilled to offer our team's expertise to the Bellevue area," said Timothy Knudsen, MD, otolaryngologist. "From tinnitus to tonsillitis, we treat all kinds of ear, nose and throat issues with treatments designed precisely for each individual. We care for patients from birth to over 100 years old."

The clinic opened Jan. 6. Schedule an appointment here.
