What is an Otolaryngologist (ENT)?
Otolaryngologists are doctors that specialize in diagnosing and treating disorders of the ear, nose, throat, head, and neck, and by extension, the sinuses, mouth, tongue, voice box, neck, larynx, trachea, bronchi, and even the lungs and esophagus.
Other doctors who deal with ENT issues include:
- Otologist - An Otologist specializes in hearing disorders such as tinnitus, Meniere's disease, and vertigo which can be treated with surgery, medications, physical therapy, and/or counseling.
- Rhinologist - Rhinologists specialize in nasal diseases including allergies, rhinosinusitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorders, sleep apnea, snoring, etc.
- Rhinolaryngologist - This is a doctor who specializes in issues with the nose and larynx
- Otorhinolaryngologist - These are ENT specialists who focus solely on issues of the ear, nose, and throat and related parts of the head and neck.
Whatever the specialty, we ENTs unite around the idea that your health needs should be carefully examined, understood, and thoughtfully treated.
When to See a Specialist for Ear, Nose, and Throat Problems
If you have any symptoms relating to your ears, nose, throat, or jaw that aren't normal, you must see an ENT specialist right away. This urgency will help get to the root of the issue quicker and allow more time to find an effective solution.
If you wait too long, it could become more difficult to find a time that fits into your schedule which could make the problem(s) worse in turn.
