Quincy Medical Group’s Keokuk Clinic adds ear, nose and throat care


KEOKUK, Iowa — Quincy Medical Group is adding ear, nose and throat care at its Keokuk Clinic, 1603 Morgan. Nurse practitioner Ryan Owens will see patients in Keokuk in addition to his practice in Quincy.

In a press release, Owens said, “Many times, the patient’s primary doctor can treat an acute ear, nose or throat problem. When it persists to a recurrent or chronic issue, this requires a specialty to correct the problem. ENT has the specialized equipment to evaluate complaints such as hoarseness with direct visualization to determine the source of the problem.”

Owens said services in Keokuk will include treatment for hoarseness/voice changes/cough, fullness of throat/reflux, recurrent ear and throat infections, wax removal, hearing loss, vertigo, chronic sinusitis/rhinitis, nasal obstruction, recurrent nose bleeds, ear/nasal/oral lesions, evaluation for alternative treatments for obstructive sleep apnea and more.

Owens said the opportunity for residents to have ENT care in their own community allows them to get their concerns addressed in a timely manner.

“One of the goals of our department is to reach out to low-access regions to provide services that would otherwise put the strain of travel on the patient. Certain surgeries and procedures would require travel to Quincy, but the initial consult and ongoing care can be completed right here in Keokuk,” he said. “It also is important to educate people with recurrent or chronic problems there are options other than medications to correct or at least improve their symptoms to try and decrease their visits to the doctor and provide a better quality of life.”
