What makes an otolaryngologist or ENT doctor different from a family practice or general doctor? These doctors have specialized knowledge about the ear, nose, and throat area, because they have spent much more time learning about this area of the body. This can be essential if your general doctor is unsure of the cause of your symptoms, because the ENT doctor has more experience with symptoms of the ear, nose, and throat. Some ENT doctors specialize in areas like allergy or sleep.
ENT doctors provide surgical treatment for cancer and other disorders of this area of the body, as well as removing tonsils and/or adenoids, which is a very common surgery in children. ENT specialists are also consulted in cases of sleep apnea to ensure that there are no obstructions in the ear, nose, and throat area that are causing your symptoms. ENT’s treat every age of patient-from the very young to the elderly. Whether you are experiencing vertigo, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), sinus problems, or other symptoms in the area of the ears, nose, and throat that is not getting better or is happening often, you should see an ENT specialist to help find the treatment for your condition.
Visiting your family doctor or primary care physician is the normal first choice for most illnesses. Sometimes, however, it becomes necessary for more specialized care, especially when you are having symptoms that do not seem to be decreasing or you are having them on a chronic basis. Visiting a board certified ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat) specialist is sometimes necessary when you are experiencing symptoms such as dizziness, unexplained hoarseness, ear pain, sinus pain, excess ear fluid, or problems with tonsils and/or adenoids, allergies, or sleep.
