How You Can Find the Right ENT Specialist for You

How You Can Find the Right ENT Specialist for You


At some point in your life, you will need an ear, nose and throat doctor, a medical professional also referred to as an ENT specialist or otolaryngologist. Perhaps your ears hurt or you’re having difficulty breathing properly through your nose. Or perhaps you often find yourself coughing at night but are absolutely cough-free during day time. Whatever it is that you feel or notice in your ears, nose or throat, it’s always a good idea to see a doctor that specializes in diagnosing and treating such problems to ensure that the problem doesn’t get worse.


Finding an ENT doctor can be a little confusing, however. There are so many ENT doctors in Hong Kong and unless you have a referral from your primary care physician, it can be overwhelming to choose the right doctor for you. This is particularly true for those who have never been checked by an ENT specialist in the past. But here are some tips to help you along in your search for the right ENT specialist:


  • If you have some form of health insurance, the first thing you should do is call your insurance company. Some insurance providers will only cover services rendered by physicians that belong to their network so make sure to check with them before making an appointment with an ENT doctor. Also, your insurance provider should have a database of doctors that are in your area so you can get these details from them and find a doctor near your home or office.


  • You can also ask your family physician or GP for a referral. If there is a good ENT doctor in your area, your GP will have heard of him as word travels fast in the medical community.


  • You can also ask around. Chances are that a friend or family member has an ENT specialist he goes to. If the recommendation is coming from someone you know, then at least you are able to find out if the doctor is good based on their own experience under his care.


If you have ENT related problems, it is always important to see a specialist to prevent any condition from getting worse. Most symptoms are harmless but others require medical care to avoid complications. Other symptoms also need treatment so they do not affect your quality of life.


So, make sure you find a good ENT specialist that is covered by your health insurance. After all, the costs should be the least of your worries. When you have a highly qualified doctor, you can rest assured that you will be taken care of and that your ENT problem will be treated accordingly.
