As summer approaches, community members can learn about skin care, including the signs and prevention of skin cancer, as well as about the latest in non-surgical facial rejuvenation during an Ask the doctor program by Oswego Health’s two otolaryngologists.

Dr. Melanie Pence and Dr. Nichoals Groch, who treat a variety of ear, nose and throat issues, will hold an Ask The Doctor program at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 10 in the lower level JPC conference room of the Oswego Health Services Center, which is adjacent to Oswego Hospital.

The program is free and open to the public. Both Dr. Pence and Dr. Groch, of Lakeside ENT, are certified otolaryngologists and in facial plastic surgery.

“It’s very important that community members know the importance of preventing skin cancer, especially since we live in a community of waterways,” Dr. Pence said.

Along with discussing skin cancer, the skin care experts will discuss the facial enhancement procedures they are performing that improve the appearance of frown lines and crow’s feet, as well as fillers.

The two otolaryngologists have a joint practice providing a wide range of services including allergy testing, sinus surgery, pediatric ear infections, snoring and sleep apnea, thyroidectomies, skin cancer excisions and cosmetic procedures.

Both physicians are board-certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Otolaryngology head & neck/facial plastic surgery.

The new physicians can be contacted by calling 349-5828.
