Also known as Ear Nose and Throat doctors, these medical professionals treat a wide range of medical issues that involve the ears, nose, throat, and related structures of the head and neck. A small number of ENT doctors undergo specialized training to become an otologist/neurotologist.

These specialized physicians have a deep understanding of the science of nerve function, hearing, balance, and disease.
