EAR NOSE AND THROAT
HOW CAN DR. LINDA DAHL HELP YOU?
An ear, nose and throat doctor is a medical specialist who diagnoses and treats disorders of the head and neck. An ENT (ear, nose and throat doctor) is also known as an otolaryngologist.
The most common reason for seeing an ear, nose and throat doctor is for the treatment of hay fever, also known as allergic rhinitis. Hay fever is a condition caused by an allergy to pollen, dust or other airborne irritants. Symptoms of hay fever include runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes and throat, and congestion.
An ear, nose and throat doctor can also treat conditions such as sinusitis, which is an inflammation of the sinuses - and pharyngitis, which is an inflammation of the throat. Additionally, ear nose and throat doctors perform surgeries of the head and neck, such as tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies.
An otolaryngologist is also a voice doctor and can treat voice disorders. Voice disorders can be caused by many things, including infection, anatomic problems, neurologic problems, and more. Treatment will depend on the cause of the voice disorder and it may include medication, lifestyle changes, speech therapy, and/or surgery.
