Dr. Wilson DuMornay, a balloon sinuplasty doctor in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is pleased to announce the publication of online documents for his patients.

Dr. Wilson DuMornay

Among the most respected and well-known balloon sinuplasty doctors in South Florida, Dr. DuMornay explains the thought process behind his digital documentation: “We wanted to make our website a distillation of all the forms and documents that come your way as a doctor. I spoke with my staff and together, along with my design and marketing team, created a system that educates the public, helps our patients, and ensures a more user-friendly and mobile-friendly way for people to book appointments and learn about the latest procedures, from balloon sinuplasty to allergy testing and radiofrequency ablation.”

It is estimated that more than 87 million Americans suffer from chronic allergies and related breathing difficulties. Today’s otolaryngologists (Ear, Nose and Throat physicians) are highly sought-after specialists who are committed to treating all aspects of breathing and hearing complications and diseases.

With new safer, less invasive and effective techniques, ENT doctors are finding a new way to treat patients young and old for their breathing and sleep difficulties ranging from sleep apnea to sinusitis.

Today’s medical professionals, particularly specialists like Dr. DuMornay, understand the importance of using their websites and other digital resources such as social media, as an extension of their practices.
