Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose and Throat)
 

Specialists in pediatric otolaryngology, commonly called ENT, care for children with problems of the ear, nose, throat and neck. Young children cannot always tell you what is bothering them. Our otolaryngologists are experienced in the latest ways to examine and treat children using equipment specially designed for smaller ears, noses, and throats. Our commitment to family-centered care ensures better diagnosis and less stress on your child and family.
