What is an otolaryngologist?

Also called an ear, nose, and throat doctor, or ENT, an otolaryngologist such as Dr. Allan Levin is a doctor who has special training and experience in diagnosing and treating disorders and diseases that affect the ears, nose, sinuses and throat, including issues that impact the way these structures function.
