Visit to an ear-nose-throat (ENT) doctor

An otorhinolaryngologist or an ear-nose-throat physician specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the ear, nose and throat.

The most common reasons for seeing an otorhinolaryngologist include:

  • frequent respiratory infections
  • enlarged tonsils, inflammation of the tonsils
  • frequent throat infections
  • allergic rhinitis
  • ear infections
  • frequent nosebleeds
  • Snoring
  • a foreign body in the airways or the ear.

Medicum offers a paid complex service of an ear-nose-throat physician – the price includes the physician’s appointment, the tests and investigations needed for diagnosis and, if necessary, a repeat appointment.

(In Sadama Medicum, the current pricing principle will stay the same – the patient has to pay an appointment fee and additional fees for tests and procedures).

The ear-nose-throat physicians in Medicum perform all kinds of procedures and tests according to the patient’s complaints.

Procedures:

  • opening of an abscess (in the ear, nose, pharynx)
  • nosebleed tamponade
  • coagulation of blood vessels (burning)
  • ear irrigation
  • tonsils irrigation
  • Vibrosession
  • sinus puncture
  • removal of a foreign body
  • Paracentesis

Tests:

  • audiometry (measuring hearing acuity)
  • tympanometry (measuring the mobility of the eardrum)
  • computed tomography (CT)
  • magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • x-ray
  • Ultrasound
  •  epipharyngoscopy
  • laboratory tests

There is no need for a referral for a paid appointment.
