Hi again,
I just have a quick question right now. If I want to see an "ENT" for a "2nd opinion," I assume the "ENT" stands for "ear, nose & throat" doctor... is that the *same* as an Otolaryngologist? When I look through our insurance directory to find an ENT that is covered, I can't find "ENT" listed anwhere in the specialty area... just Otolaryngologists... I want to make sure I'm looking at the right section!
Thanks,
Michelle (Happy Dog)

You are on the right track, go to an otolaryngologist.

Yes, "ENT" is just shorthand for "ear, nose, throat". Actually "otorhinolaryngologist" would be most accurate, because without the "rhino" (nose), you're just an "ET". But, these guys have enough problems to deal with, so they're happy to be known simply as otolaryngologists.
