About Our Practice
 

Western Michigan ENT, PC was founded in 1995 by Dr. J. Ben Hengy, D.O. The practice specializes in otorhinolaryngology and orofacial plastic surgery and otolaryngic allergy. The practice handles a wide range of illness affecting the ears, nose and throat. We are known for excellence in patient care. 

In 1999, Dr. Andrew E. Mendians, D.O. joined the practice to further expand our ability to care for patients in the Manistee and Ludington areas. Drs. Hengy and Mendians are both Board Certified in Otorhinolaryngology and Orofacial plastic surgery. Both physicians are Fellows of the Osteopathic College of Otorhinolaryngology and Orofacial Plastic Surgery - the highest honor to be bestowed on its trained physicians. Both physicians have had additional training in allergy affecting the ears, nose and throat. 

The practice is priviledged to have the training and experience of Dr. Brenda Beckrow-McCann, AuD. Dr. Beckrow-McCann has a doctorate degree in Audiology (hearing and ear health). Dr. Beckrow-McCann has helped to expand our practice to caring for patients with hearing problems and diseases of the ear. The Hearing Institute of Western Michigan (a division of Western Michigan ENT, PC) provides a wide range of services to our patients with hearing problems. We are able to provide hearing tests, dizziness studies and hearing aid evaluations to our patients. We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality hearing aids in the industry and are able to back this with quality service. Unlike hearing aid dealers, we provide Comprehensive Hearing Care.
