To my Dear Patients and Colleagues – Retirement Announcement
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your trust and confidence in permitting me to take care of your otolaryngology medical needs through the years. It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my retirement from Pacific ENT Medical Group on December 31, 2021. I will continue to perform independent medical and medical legal examinations for the next 6-12 months but will no longer be seeing patients with Pacific ENT Medical Group.
I know that my patients will continue to receive the best possible care and that my former partners, Dr. Moses Salgado and Dr. Hernan Goldsztein and our new associate, Dr. Supriti Paul, possess the highest qualifications and are highly skilled in all areas of otolaryngology.
I have enjoyed, and been honored to have had 2 careers, 27 years as a Navy physician and surgeon and 26 years in Private Practice. I opened my practice in 1995 in Solana Beach and am proud of the growth to 4 physicians and relocation to Carlsbad, CA. I will miss my partners, my office staff, medical colleagues and most of all, my patients. I want to thank the loyalty and confidence of my patients, many of whom I have known long enough that I consider them as friends. I will miss all of you very much, but I know that my patients will be in good hands with the physicians and staff at Pacific ENT Medical Group.
Cynthia Davis, MD, FACS

Hearing Aids and Face Masks
Posted August 28th, 2020
You will want to ensure the strap length is correct. If the straps are too short, they can pull your ears forward. Not only will this cause discomfort but it will make your hearing aids less secure. The straps should be long enough so your ears are able to rest in their natural position when you are wearing the mask. Learn more about Face Masks

Important Allergenic Weeds
The following sheets describe nine of the most important allergenic weeds. Although individual species are described on each sheet, in most cases other members of the respective genera are of similar importance (e.g., although short ragweed is a very widespread and important species, other species of ragweed are also of allergenic importance). The sheets are arranged alphabetically by genus. Allergenic Weeds (PDF)
Important Allergenic Grasses
The following ten sheets describe four of the most important allergenic grasses. There are many other allergenic species, and some are difficult to distinguish unless they are in bloom. Bermuda, Johnson and Timothy grasses are among those that are easily recognized in the field, the former two even before blooming. Allergenic Grasses (PDF)
