What is an ENT Doctor Called?

An ENT – or ear, nose and throat – doctor is called an otolaryngologist. This is a challenging word to say for many people! It’s pronounced: ō-​tō-​ˌler-​ən-​ˈgä-​lə-​jist. The Merriam-Webster online dictionary has an audio pronunciation of this word that can be accessed here: https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/otolaryngology.

ENTs have specialized training to treat disorders of the head and neck. In addition to 4 years of college, they must complete 4 years of medical school, 5 years of residency and 51 months of specialized training. They utilize both medical and surgical care to treat conditions such as:

·       Ear infections

·       Nasal congestion

·       Sinus pain/sinusitis

·       Hearing loss/tinnitus

·       Balance disorders

·       Vocal difficulties

·       Problems swallowing

·       Tonsillitis

·       Infectious diseases

·       Cancer

·       Polyps
