Otolaryngologists are doctors trained in the surgical and medical management and treatment of patients with disorders of the ear, nose, throat (abbreviated as ENT), and related structures of the head and neck. The physicians are commonly referred to as ENT physicians.
ENT doctors' special skills include diagnosing and managing diseases of the oral cavity, larynx (voice box), sinuses, and upper pharynx (mouth and throat), as well as structures of the face and neck. Otolaryngologists diagnose, treat, and handle specialty-specific ailments as well as many primary care problems in both children and adults.
You may want to see an ENT doctor if you have an ear disorder or condition, such as ear infections, hearing impairment, disorders that affect balance, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), or pain in your ear.

ENT doctors are trained to manage tumors, diseases, trauma, and deformities of the head, neck, and face and can perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgery in these areas. They can also manage problems with the nerves in the head and neck that control sight, hearing, smelling, and facial movements.
