What Does an ENT Doctor Do?
An ear, nose and throat doctor (ENT), also referred to as an otolaryngologist, has special medical training to diagnose and treat disorders of the head and neck. Not only do they have a medical degree; they also have at least 5 additional years of specialty training to gain the knowledge to pass an exam by the American Board of Otolaryngology. ENTs provide both medical and surgical care to treat a wide variety of ear, nose and throat conditions. ENTs focus on improving the function of 3 of our senses: sound, smell and taste.
