The Department of Pediatric Otolaryngology (otherwise known as Ear, Nose, and Throat, or ENT) provides care for patients with problems involving the ears, sinuses, oral cavity, airway, nose, throat, and neck including sinus conditions, neck masses, allergy, and snoring. The department also specializes in swallowing disorders, voice problems, dizziness and balance disorders, hearing loss, and breathing problems.

Our pediatric otolaryngologists work closely with pediatric pulmonologists and gastroenterologists to provide a multidisciplinary team approach to evaluating and treating each patient. They also work closely with audiologists (hearing experts) and speech/swallow pathologists.

"I was pleasantly surprised with Dr. Levi. She listened to my concerns and offered support and knowledge. We travel from New York and pay for the Boston Medical Doctors out of pocket. They have proven over and over again how valuable their services are. I am extremely pleased with the services I have received."
