What Happens During A Typical Appointment With An ENT Specialist?

A visit to an ENT specialist or otolaryngologist is different from an average visit to your family physician, as the specialist may use instrumentation to allow better visualization of difficult areas.

Outlined below is what to expect from a general ENT visit, however, depending on the presenting symptoms of the patient, the consultation may vary, tailoring the history and the examination to the patient’s complaint and presenting symptoms.

Why Do I Need A Hearing Test?

A hearing test, or audiogram, is an important part of your visit. The testing not only checks your hearing, but also gives the ear, nose and throat specialist a more thorough assessment of your inner ear and whether there might be a physical cause for your hearing difficulty. A hearing test helps answer three important questions:

Do you have hearing loss?
What is causing your hearing loss?
What is the best way to improve your hearing?
Most individuals have not had a hearing test since they were in elementary school! Along with the physical examination of your ears that will be performed during your visit, the hearing test allows the physician important data to create a more thorough plan of care for you.
