At ENT & Allergy Specialists, we incorporate gentle techniques to help engage and comfort children while evaluating and treating them. We understand that children require a special kind of care, which is why we strive to minimize pain, discomfort and anxiety in our child patients.
In addition to our focus and expertise performing pediatric ENT surgeries, we always do our own procedures and personally provide all necessary follow-up care. Many of our procedures can be done at our fully accredited and professionally staffed Center for Surgical Care. Our physicians also have privileges at all Northern Kentucky Hospitals for times that we feel its use is most appropriate.
Who Should See an Otolaryngologist?
Children experiencing ear, nose, throat, head or neck issues should be diagnosed and treated by a physician trained to address these complex problems. Otolaryngologists are skilled in both the medical management and surgical treatment of ear, nose and throat conditions in children and infants.
You should consider bringing your child to an ENT doctor if they are experiencing any of the following symptoms or conditions:
- Ear infections
- Dizziness and balance problems
- Sinus infections
- Snoring and sleep apnea

3. Set Your First-Time Visit Expectations
An otolaryngologist will ask you questions about your symptoms and typically examine your ears and sinuses, feel your neck for lumps and visually inspect your throat and tonsils.
Further testing, including X-rays or CT scans, may be requested before a diagnosis is determined.
