Types of doctors that treat ear, nose and throat conditions
ENT physicians and their teams are specialized in one of the most complicated-sounding medical fields: otorhinolaryngology. You might hear them referred to as otorhinolaryngologists or otolaryngologists, but we try to keep it simple and just say "ENT doctors" or even just "ENTs."
Whatever you call them, each one has extra training and experience diagnosing and treating conditions that affect your head and neck. Combining this with their close relationships to other specialists in different medical fields, our teams will be able to provide you with the high-quality care you deserve.
