ENT consultation in Dubai what to expect

Dec 13 2017 By Dr. Ahmad Bassel Chaykhouny - Specialist Otolaryngology (ENT)

An ENT specialist works with your ears, nose and throat. The practice is called Otolaryngology.

ENT consultations in Dubai generally treat infections and troubles in the head and neck including cancers and diseases. ENT physicians deal with cosmetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery while Pediatric ENT specialists treat children. They specialise in allergies, facial and reconstructive surgery, rhinology, head and neck issues, laryngology, otology and neurotology. ENT consultations in Dubai are a regular affair and chances are, every person will meet with a doctor at least once in their lifetimes. After all, an ENT specialist looks after three of your vital senses, hearing, taste and scent.

If you’ve been asked to meet with an ENT specialist and want to know what to expect, here are a few things you can do to prepare yourself and to make things easier for you and the doctor.

A medical history

The doctor will first require you to provide your medical history to them. This will give them a look into any prior or existing conditions you have and if you are allergic to any drugs or treatments in particular. After the doctor is done going through your medical history, depending on your current reason for visiting, they may check all or only specific areas of your ears, nose and/or throat.

Listen up

When checking your ears, a doctor uses devices such as an otoscope and sometimes a tuning fork. The ENT specialist will be looking for any signs of infections, bruises or any other unusual elements in your ears. From the eardrums to the canal, the doctor may have to use a solution or suction devices to clean any debris like wax that could be obstructing your ear canals. The doctor may also conduct hearing tests.

What’s that smell

An ENT consultation in Dubai includes checking on your nasal cavities and its proper functioning. Using a speculum and a light, the doctor will check your nose for any signs of trouble. Whether it’s chronic sinusitis which affects millions of individuals annually or allergies, smelling disorders or nasal obstructions such as a deviated septum. These are the things an ENT specialist will be on the lookout for.

Speaking with ease

Checking your throat can get pretty uncomfortable if you’re not used to it or have a sensitive gag reflex. However, ENT specialists are trained at being as discreet and gentle as possible when inspecting your digestive tract, esophagus and larynx. They can also detect and treat swallowing disorders.

When getting an ENT consultation in Dubai make sure that the clinic or hospital you are going to has certified doctors, medical licenses to be practicing and a level of trust from past patient referrals. If you or someone you know is looking to get an ENT consultation in Dubai, look no further than GMCClinics. Boasting state-of-the-art facilities, highly trained staff and  the trust of many patients who’ve been treated by them, GMCClinics is a great place to come to for your next ENT visit.
