COVID-19 Information Update – November 2021

The health and safety of our employees and patients is always our priority.  Our office will continue to:

      • Require face masks to be worn by employees and patients. Many of the symptoms of COVID are also common symptoms for many ENT problems, for example, cough, loss of taste and smell, therefore we request that you help us keep each other safe and wear a mask.
      • Limit the number of patients in our office at one time to promote social distancing. We encourage you to be mindful of others around you.
      • Clean exam rooms, public restrooms and common areas after each patient.

A Note About COVID-19 and Vaccinations

Many patients have contacted the office asking my opinion of the COVID vaccines and what they should do. I cannot make the decision for you on whether to get a vaccine or not. I can provide you with some information to help make that decision and some sources for further information as well. With the choice of three vaccines now available to the public, patients are being advised to take the vaccine that is available to them. There have been no studies comparing the three vaccines to each other but all three are very effective in reducing symptoms of COVID19.

I got my second vaccine in February. My risk factors include my age and the fact that I am caring for patients. It has been stated that the risk of COVID is greater than the risk of side effects from the vaccine, and that factored into my decision to get the vaccine.

Like most people, I only had arm soreness after my first shot. The side effects of headache, muscle aches, joint pain, low grade fever, chills and fatigue that have been reported after the second shot are indications that your immune system is mounting a response to the vaccine. This is not a vaccine that is made from the COVID virus, so these are not symptoms of COVID. I experienced some of the same side effects which lasted about 24 hours.

I have been taking supplements to boost my immune system for years. I take Vitamins A, C, E and D and have a protocol to follow if you are interested. I plan to continue these supplements indefinitely. If side effects occur after the second shot, I recommend taking acetaminophen (Tylenol®) or ibuprofen as needed. Please do NOT take acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen BEFORE your vaccine as it might decrease the effectiveness of the immune response.

In the end, it is important that all of us do our research from trusted sources and make the decision that is best for us. I believe that choosing to take the vaccine will allow me to continue to take care of you, my patients and be able to visit my family safely. That is very important to me. You should make the decision that works best for you.

I have found reliable information in the CDC website.

Triangle ENT is a small, family-oriented practice specializing in general ENT and allergy treatment for patients of all ages.

Dr. Robert Taylor takes a unique approach in blending aspects of traditional medicine and integrative approaches, for a unique treatment which looks at the cause of symptoms. This approach may include prescription and non-prescription medications, nutritional supplements, environmental changes, desensitization, lifestyle changes and surgical options.

Dr. Taylor believes education is extremely important and patients are strongly encouraged to learn about treatment options so that they may be active partners in the care process. Many of the problems associated with symptoms of chronic illness do not have a “quick” fix, and patience and persistence are often necessary in returning to optimal wellness.

Our staff is very knowledgeable and has extensive experience with all aspects of ENT and allergy treatments.
