Happy holidays from River ENT!

[11/11/20]   Happy Veteran's Day! Thank you to all those who have served our country.

[08/20/20]   Keep up the masking and social distancing Austin! We can do this together!

[08/20/20]   Parents, don't forget to stay up to date on your children's vaccinations! Vaccines are important, safe and effective. They keep our kids healthy, especially during a pandemic. Be sure to include your yearly flu vaccine for the entire family. Contact your pediatrician or primary care physician for more information. Stay healthy and safe!

[06/26/20]   Patients, please be aware that the governor has suspended most elective hospital surgeries, but not surgeries or procedures in the office or in surgical centers. This is to preserve hospital beds as well as equipment needed to treat the recent surge in COVID-19 cases. If you have any concerns about any upcoming surgeries or procedures, feel free to call us. We are here for you!

[06/16/20]   Friends and family of River ENT, please continue to wear your masks and practice social distancing! Wash your hands often and stay home if you are sick. We can work together to get through this pandemic!

[05/15/20]   Dear patients, friends and family, we are open with full services. Thank you for your patience during the pandemic. We are taking all the steps needed to protect you and our staff from exposure to COVID-19 including thorough cleaning of our exam rooms, waiting area and offices, wearing masks and limited the amount of people in our waiting area to allow for social distancing. We are also performing temperature checks on all staff and patients as they enter our office and asking that all patients wear masks in the clinic. We are here for you!


Thank you so much to all our generous donations of N95 respirators and surgical masks: David and Agnes Cheung and the Church in Round Rock, the Church in San Diego, TMLT and TCMS! We are so grateful to you.

[04/16/20]   Friends of River ENT - if you know of anyone in construction or industry that carries N95 masks, please consider asking them if they would donate their masks to us. We are also ready to buy any supply as there is a nationwide shortage! Thanks and be healthy and safe!
