Sinus and Nasal Specialists of Louisiana, led by Dr. Henry Barham and Dr. Christian Hall, provides ENT care from allergies, infections, and tumors to other complex problems of the nose and sinuses. The new location at BRG Ascension joins their main location on BRG’s Bluebonnet campus. Sinus and Nasal Specialists provides convenient, in-office sinus imaging technology and offers a full-service allergy clinic with the most sophisticated allergy testing and treatment strategies available today.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to develop relationships within the Ascension community and surrounding parishes as they entrust us with their ENT care, especially in such a conveniently located and new facility,” said Dr. Barham.
