An Otolaryngologist is a physician trained in both medicine and surgery to diagnose and treat diseases and conditions of the ear, nose, throat, head, and neck.

Otolaryngology is short for otorhinolaryngology which is derived from the Greek words otos (ear), rhino (nose), laryngo (windpipe), and logos (science). Other names include Ear, Nose, and Throat doctor, often shortened to ENT. Otolaryngology is one of the oldest medical specialties in the U.S., dating back to the 19th century.

At the Ear, Nose, and Throat Center, the Otolaryngologists work closely with the Audiologists to provide comprehensive diagnostic testing and rehabilitative options for patients with hearing related issues.
