Pediatric ENT Care
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
• Dizziness and balance problems
• Sinus infections
• Snoring and sleep apnea
