What is an ENT?
An otolaryngologist or ENT is a doctor that specializes in issues of the Ear, Nose, and Throat. The ears, nose, and throat all work together as part of a larger system, however, they each have their unique characteristics.
Ears - Your ears play huge roles in hearing and balance. We have the skills to treat ear infections and other issues facing the anatomy of the ear.
Nose - The nose helps the body filter out foreign substances, it purifies and moisturizes the air we breathe, and it is the pathway to our sinus cavity. Illnesses of the nose include things like allergic rhinitis, sinusitis, and physical defects such as a deviated septum or nasal polyps.
Throat - The throat helps you breathe, eat, speak, and sing. Common issues with the throat include trouble swallowing, tonsil infections, and vocal problems.
