Our Practice

St Joseph’s Ear, Nose, Throat & Allergy Clinic is an independent clinic devoted to the expert care of the patients with problems of the ear, nose, throat , and head and neck.  Started in 1996 by Dr. Thomas deTar, the clinic took its name from Saint Joseph, the patron of compassionate care of the sick and injured. We offer the full spectrum of medical and surgical treatments, in a friendly, personal and professional environment. Through trusting relationships, we are committed to assist you in achieving your best health.

Clinic Hours:

The clinic is open Monday through Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Friday 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. with the exception of holidays.  For established patients, after regular hours the answering service will refer all calls to the physician.


We try to schedule all appointments to minimize waiting time and to provide optimal care for each patient.  First time patients are asked to come to the clinic 15 minutes prior to their appointment to complete paperwork.  Please bring insurance information.  Non-parent guardians should also bring Power of Attorney.  


Please call us at least 24 hours prior if you are unable to make your appointment so we can offer this time to another patient.
