South Carolina ENT, Allergy and Sleep Medicine (SCENT) has been serving Midlands’ patients for 15 years. It is not only the largest, but is also the only practice that provides leading-edge services for allergy testing and sleep medicine.
SCENT physicians include: Drs. Robert Puchalski, D. Macy Vidrine, Janaki L. Emani, Joseph Sciarrino, Natalie Sciarrino, Brian N. Boone, Valerie A. Fritsch, and Mariangela Rivera. With training from some of the nation’s leading medical institutions, the board-certified physicians also have sub-specialty training and provide advanced treatment protocols in pediatric otolaryngology, otology, allergy, sleep medicine, and head and neck cancer surgery.
Enhancing SCENT’s ability to deliver timely and comprehensive care is its staff of highly trained nurse practitioners, physician assistants, audiologists, respiratory therapists, and support personnel. They share a commitment to helping their patients become informed about medical conditions and treatments so they can make better decisions about their health and well-being. This collaborative, interdisciplinary approach helps ensure optimal outcomes.
SCENT has six locations with state-of-the-art, on-site diagnostics and convenient hours: Downtown Columbia, Northeast Columbia, Irmo, Lugoff, Sumter, and Winnsboro. We offer two sleep lab locations. One location includes special accommodations for children. Our physicians also have privileges at more area hospitals than any other ENT practice, giving patients more options for in-hospital treatment. It is a prescription for quality care that few practices can offer.
