Your ear, nose and throat are all connected to each other. When a problem develops inone area, it can affect the other areas, as well. That’s why the field of otolaryngology is so important. An otolaryngologist, also called an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) specialist, focuses on diagnosing, treating and preventing diseases in this area of the body.
