General Otolaryngology and Laryngology

What is an Otolaryngologist?

Otolaryngology is one of the oldest medical specialties in the United States. Otolaryngologits are physicians who are trained both medically and surgically to manage and treat patients with diseases in the ear, nose, and throat (ENT). They are able to treat patients with diseases of the nose and sinuses, larynx, oral cavity, pharynx, neck, and face. They can treat both children and adults.
