An otolaryngologist (commonly known as an ENT doctor) is a physician who specializes in the medical and surgical treatment of ear, nose, and throat disorders. Ear disorders that would be treated by an otolaryngologist would include balance disorders, infections, tumors, and surgically reconstruction of external ear deformities due to birth defects and trauma.

An otolaryngologistŐs education is complete after 4 to 5 years of residency training after medical school. To become medically licensed, in otolaryngology, he/she must pass a national written and oral examination.

In California, an otolarnygologist can also be licensed to dispense hearing aids upon successfully passing the Hearing Aid Dispensers Examination.
