LOWCOUNTRY EAR, NOSE AND THROAT
Specialists in adult and pediatric otolaryngology, hearing and balance, we are located near Charleston Southern University and Trident Medical Center in North Charleston, SC
At Low Country ENT we recognize that you have a choice in the Charleston area when it comes to selecting an ear, nose and throat specialist (known as an otolaryngologist), or in purchasing a hearing aid. That's why we want you to be as relaxed and informed as possible about our practice; ear, nose and throat related health issues; and treatment options. We've created this information-rich website to give you 24/7 access to an array of the most common ear, nose and throat topics. The more you know, the more comfortable we hope you and your family will be with our otolaryngology practice.
Low Country ENT is a relatively small, friendly, family oriented, one physician practice. We think this offers a refreshing alternative to the less personalized experience in a large corporate or academic practice. The doctor who evaluates you in the office should be the same one who sees you in follow up or takes care of you in the hospital if that becomes neccesary. We strive to remain academically current, with the goal to continue providing state-of-the-art medical, surgical and audiologic care. A board certified specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of ear, nose and throat disorders in children and adults, Dr. Russell Kitch has been seeing patients in the Charleston area for over 20 years. Dr. Kitch has advanced training and board certification in sleep medicine, and has special interests in vertigo, sudden hearing loss, sinusitis, and sleep apnea. Our board certified audiologist, Dr. Julie Shoemaker has been with the practice since 2004. In that time she has acquired many satisfied customers who have been relieved of benign positional vertigo, or have improved their hearing thanks to new hearing aids.
This website contains information about our doctors, locations, hours, emergency practices and more. We believe our website is the best way for you to stay connected to our practice and get the highest quality ear, nose and throat support.
We appreciate the faith and reponsibility you have entrusted to us and will always strive to provide you with the most ethical and highest standard of medical care. Low Country ENT promises to uphold the patient-physician relationship which is based on courtesy, honesty, trust and confidentiality. On behalf of Dr. Kitch, Dr. Shoemaker and staff, we welcome you to our practice and look forward to helping you and your family preserve a lifetime of good health.
