Our ear, nose and throat doctors, also known as ENTs, treat a variety of conditions in adults and children. From hearing loss and balance disorders to snoring and sleep apnea, they are skilled in both medical and surgical treatments. Your family doctor may refer you to an ENT when your condition or the condition of a loved one warrants special care. Ear, nose and throat doctors offer complete care for both adults and children. They work with primary care doctors, audiologists and medical assistants to diagnose and treat the full range of ear, nose and throat issues.
