Do I need to see a specialist? Should I contact my GP first?

The majority of ailments are best handled by your primary care physician. They are the best persons to determine whether or not you should visit a specialist and which expert you should see. Conditions like deafness or discharge from the ears, on the other hand, are typically easy for the ENT to diagnose. If you’re unsure, consult your doctor first.

What can I expect during at ENT exam?

Obviously, your exam will be tailored to your symptoms; however, you should be prepared to share a detailed medical history and a very thorough examination of the different areas of your ears, nose, and throat.

Why is throat care important?

Your throat helps you swallow and speak. When there are issues with the throat, it affects your quality of life. You can also develop severe issues like cancer in the throat. Regular check-ups with your doctor is the first step in throat health.

Should I see an ENT to have wax removed from my ears?

The majority of wax is syringed out by GPs and clinic nursing sisters. In some circumstances, wax might be difficult to remove, and it is best to get your ears cleaned by an ENT. It is better to consult an ENT directly if you have had past ear issues or procedures. Ear buds should be avoided since they condense wax in the ear canal and make removal harder. Commercial drops used to try to eliminate wax from your ear have a very poor success rate.
