Melanie Pence, DO, and Nicholas Groch, DO, of Lakeshore ENT will hold an Ask The Doctor program at 6 p.m. on 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 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 and neck/facial plastic surgery.

Dr. Groch earned his bachelor’s degree and Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University. His internship and residency in otolaryngology/facial plastic surgery were both completed at Henry Ford Bi-County Hospital in Warren, Mich.

Dr. Pence earned her bachelor’s degree, as well as her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University. The East Lansing based-college is where she also completed her internship.

Dr. Pence fulfilled her residency in otolaryngology head and neck/facial plastic surgery at Metropolitan Hospital in Grand Rapids, Mich.
