    Ear ache : Which type of doctor should I go to?

    Should I bother going to my primary care physician or should I go straight to an Otolaryngologist?

    If you have the opportunity I'd see the ENT.

    How do I know whether to see an ENT or otolaryngologist?

    ENT = otolarynologist. ENT is short for ear, nose and throat which is what the O is. So same thing....I just didn't want to have to type the long word!

    an Otolaryngologist is an ear, nose and throat doctor and that is who you need to see.
