About Our Practice

Thank you for your interest in the newest Otolaryngology/ENTA practice serving the Tucson community! Sonoran Ear Nose and Throat was founded by Dr. Kang and Dr. Lara to provide full-service diagnostics and treatment within our medical specialty to help patients remain healthy and enjoy the best-possible quality of life.

Patient-Centered Care

Have you ever felt that you are being treated like just a number at your other doctors’ offices? Our goal is to deliver the best personal service to help you throughout your visit and treatment. Our staff members have been selected specifically for their superior personal skills and courtesy to ensure that your experience in our office is pleasant, cordial, and respectful. We promise to take all measures to remain on time for your appointment, as we know that your time is as important as ours.

Our providers focus on patient-centered care, with the concerns and desires of the patient always taking precedence in our medical recommendations and decision-making process. We communicate electronically with your referring provider or other provider after your appointment so that information regarding your condition and our treatment recommendations are available to them immediately. Dr. Kang and Dr. Lara will recommend surgical intervention only when necessary; our patients will never feel pressured into performing procedures if they are not ready to do so. We believe that our patients are entitled to full disclosure of the risks and benefits of all possible interventions, and should be involved in their own health care decisions.

Our office is stocked with new equipment and tools to ensure that a thorough examination and accurate diagnosis is made. We have the newest audiology equipment and the latest dizziness and balance testing equipment available. We follow the most up-to-date and complete allergy testing and immunotherapy protocols. We use a very patient-friendly electronic medical records system complete with a patient portal where you can view your medical chart, see your lab test results, and enter your medical history information from home should you choose.
