Meet a Specialist: Noah S. Siegel, M.D.
“I am thrilled to have returned to Mass. Eye and Ear after 15 years,” Dr. Noah Siegel begins. After completing his residency at Harvard Medical School in 2000, Dr. Siegel joined a Boston area private practice where he had the opportunity to manage the full spectrum of disorders of the ears, nose and throat. Over that time, he also developed expertise in Sleep Medicine, allergy and pediatric care. Today, Dr. Siegel is the Medical Director of Otolaryngology at Mass. Eye and Ear, Longwood where he manages the full range of conditions affecting the ears, nose and throat.
Dr. Siegel’s professional passion is sleep. He was the first otolaryngologist in Massachusetts to have obtained Sleep Medicine subspecialty Board Certification. He focuses on adults and children with breathing related sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. As an ear, nose and throat doctor with a deep understanding of the upper airway, he is uniquely positioned to review a wide range of treatment options with individuals with snoring and sleep apnea. Treatment options for sleep apnea may include surgical procedures, CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure machines), oral appliance therapy and others. Dr. Siegel regularly teaches courses and contributes to national forums on sleep disorders.
Dr. Siegel stresses the importance of lifestyle modifications for his sleep patients. “The vast majority of sleep disorders can be improved with lifestyle adjustments,” Dr. Siegel notes. “By focusing on diet, exercise, mindfulness and stress reduction, patients can significantly improve their sleep quality. Our actions during the day set the stage for good quality sleep. Conversely, good sleep prepares us for the subsequent day. Optimal sleep restores our bodies, consolidates our memories and improves our productivity and mood.” He continues, “Individuals who are appropriately treated for sleep apnea will have a reduction in their risk of developing cardiovascular disease or being involved in motor vehicle accidents.”
In addition to treating patients for sleep disorders, Dr. Siegel sees children and adults for allergic conditions and sinonasal issues. He mentions, “At Mass. Eye and Ear, Longwood, we perform allergy testing, allergy shot therapy and sublingual therapy.” Mass. Eye and Ear, Longwood doctors also see individuals with the full range of range of ear, nose and throat conditions in a modern, convenient and state of the art facility. Mass. Eye and Ear, Longwood also features full audiology or hearing care services and a vestibular (balance) rehabilitation program.
Dr. Siegel concludes, “At the Longwood facility, we are exceedingly focused on providing an outstanding patient experience. When patients trusts us with their healthcare, we consider that a huge responsibility. From the time an appointment is made, and throughout the entire interaction with our office, we do our best to address all patient concerns and provide each individual with a clear treatment plan. Our ultimate goal is to provide compassionate, high-quality care to every patient who walks in our door.”
