Who are ENT Physicians?
ENTs, more formally known as Otolaryngologists, specialize in treating ears, noses and throats. That mouthful of a medical specialty is more commonly referred to as ENTs or ENT Physicians. These doctors typically provide both medical and surgical treatments for their patients.
For many families, ENTs are sought when their child needs specialized care for ear infections or concerns with their tonsils or adenoids- but ENTs can cover a myriad of conditions:
ENT Areas of Focus
Ears, including hearing loss and ear tubes
Tonsils and adenoids
Smell and taste disorders
Lesions or tumors in the mouth and throat
Cancers in the head and neck

It can be hard to determine whether to seek a specialist’s care. For most families, your first stop is the family doctor or pediatrician.
If there is a condition that warrants a more specialized approach, they will make a referral to a local ENT physician’s office. You can also call the ENT offices directly; some may not require a referral for an initial consult.
