When to see a pediatric ENT specialist

Children and adolescents are most likely to visit a pediatrician for an ear, nose or throat problem. Children often get ear infections because the gap between the ears and the back of the throat is short and nearly horizontal. This makes it difficult for the nose and ears to drain vertically down the throat, causing painful bacterial build-up.

It may be confusing to know when a child should see a pediatrician or an ENT specialist. While pediatricians can make referrals to ENT doctors, patients or parents can schedule appointments as well, if your insurance carrier does not require a referral to see a specialist.

Some reasons to visit a pediatric specialist include:

  • More than a few ear infections in one year
  • Chronic or recurring issues (usually if the problem does not improve or completely resolve within three months)
  • Frequency of issues (if your child experiences multiple chronic episodes in one year)
  • Testing and treatment for allergies
