ENT Specialists

Since ENT specialists are trained in medicine as well as surgery, when patients present to ENT physicians, they generally will not need to be referred elsewhere. The ENT specialist will likely be able to thoroughly diagnose the patient’s condition and administer the proper treatment for the patient, even if it includes undergoing surgery.

Physicians who are ENT specialists have obtained education to include college, medical school, and at least five years of specialty training in the field. In order for an ENT to be certified, he or she must pass the board examination for Otolaryngology. Some practitioners in the field also carry additional training in specialty areas such as pediatrics, allergies, rhinology (medical or surgical treatment of the nose or sinuses), laryngology (medical or surgical treatment of the throat, including the voice, or reconstructive surgery.
