How do I know if I must see an ENT surgeon or another type of specialist?
ENT surgeons specialise mainly in surgery of the ears, nose and throat. They also perform neck surgery generally above the level of the collar bone.
If I have an ENT issue do I need to be seen by my GP first?
No, you do not need a formal referral from your house doctor. You may schedule a consultation with Dr Kluge.
