Today’s ENT Doctors tends to get mixed in with the field of an allergist because allergies tend to affect the ears, nose, and throat, but there is so much more to the Ear Nose and Throat Specialty. An ENT specialist is also known as an Otolaryngologist.
Oto- means ear and -laryn refers to the throat. Laryn = larynx get it. The nose has a connection with both the throat and the ear. It is important to note that not all Otolaryngologist treat the ear, nose, and throat; some of them specialize in only one area and/or structure. They are trained to diagnose, treat, and manage diseases and disorders of the ear nose and throat.
You can choose other doctors for your ear, nose, and throat problems, but an otolaryngologist is the best as they are the ones who would be performing your procedure if you should need one. It is easier working with a doctor that can diagnose, treat your problem and perform surgery without referring you to another physician. They can make all the difference in your decision of who to select as your families ENT specialist.
