Your Pediatric ENT Specialist

At South Valley Ear, Nose & Throat, 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.

Who Should See a Pediatric Otolaryngologist?

Children experiencing ear, nose, throat, head or neck issues should be diagnosed and treated by a physician trained to address these complex problems. Pediatric 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 a pediatric ENT doctor if they are experiencing any of the following symptoms or conditions:

  • Ear infections
  • Tonsillitis
  • Dizziness and balance problems
  • Sinus infections
  • Allergies
  • Snoring and sleep apnea

What Are the Next Steps for Your Child’s ENT Visit?

1. Setup an Appointment

Contact us to schedule an appointment with a pediatric specialist. Our front office staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Visit our location page for direct contact information.

2. Prepare for Your Visit

Write down any questions you may have for your ENT and list your symptoms, when they occurred and any treatments you have tried, even if those symptoms do not seem related to the condition you are being seen for.

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. The symptoms of ENT disorders often overlap. We use a holistic approach to determine the cause of your symptoms so we can recommend the right treatment for you.
