An ear, nose, or throat problem can be simple or complex. It might range from a sore throat to severe hearing loss.
Your PCP may suggest you see an expert in otolaryngology. That's a doctor with special training in head, neck, ear, nose, and throat disorders.
At UPMC, our ear, nose, and throat doctors (ENTs) take a team approach. An ENT often aligns their treatment with speech pathologists and hearing and balance experts.
