Otolaryngologists diagnose and manage diseases of the sinuses, larynx (voice box), oral cavity, upper pharynx (mouth and throat), and structures of the neck and face, as well as many ENT primary care problems in both children and adults. These specialists differ from many physicians in that they are trained in both medicine and surgery. Otolaryngologists do not need to refer patients to other physicians when ear, nose, throat, or head/neck surgery is needed and can offer the most appropriate care for each individual patient. Therefore, otolaryngologists are the most appropriate physicians to treat disorders of the ears, nose, throat, and related structures of the head and neck. Audiologists are health-care professionals who evaluate, diagnose, treat, and manage hearing loss, tinnitus, and balance disorders in newborns, children, and adults.
Audiologists are trained experts who:
•Evaluate hearing using behavioral and objective (non-behavioral) test procedures
•Identify hearing loss
•Refer patients to an otolaryngologist (ENT) for medical or surgical management of hearing loss
•Determine need for hearing rehabilitation
•Determine candidacy for hearing aids
•Select and fit hearing aids
•Evaluate the balance system
