3 Reasons to Take Your Child to a Pediatric ENT Doctor

August 9th, 2016

Imagine this: Your child wakes up on the first day of school with a runny nose and extreme ear pain. Oh no, it's the first day of school and your child is sick! Your first instinct is to call his/her pediatrician, but as you’re on the phone scheduling the appointment, your child tells you he/she has been having some ear pain off and on for a few days. You start to think it’s probably best your child see a doctor that specializes in ears and works well with children. But who do you call?

Here are the top 3 reasons why it's best to take your child to a pediatric Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) doctor with pediatric services:

1. Specialized care

ENT doctors specialize in ear, nose, and throat issues. They know exactly how these parts of the body affect each other and how to properly treat each symptom. Pediatric ENT doctors understand the psychological and physiological differences between children and adults and are able to treat and better manage each individual illness.

2. Specialized tests

Pediatric ENT doctors are able to perform pediatric audiology services, including but not limited to, otoacoustic emmisions (OAE) for newborns. ENT doctors are also able to weed out seasonal allergies vs. reoccurring ear infections due to underlying issues. Some ENT offices also offer allergy testing in the office.

3. More time with your child as the patient

Because ENT doctors are specialists, they are able to create a schedule that allows more time to be spent with each patient. By doing this, the doctors are able to spend more time studying and determining your child's diagnosis. Ultimately this means spending more time with your child personally and learning each child individually because they understand every child is special and unique in their own way.
