Otolaryngology, or oto-rhino-laryngology (ear, nose and throat), is a surgical subspecialty that is commonly referred to as ear, nose and throat (ENT) or otolaryngology - head and neck surgery. An otolaryngologist treats patients with conditions involving the ear, nose, throat and related structures of the head and neck. At the University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville Division of Otolaryngology, we offer a wide range of patient services using the most current advances and techniques in diagnosis and management. Our team of healthcare providers unites years of expertise and knowledge to deliver the highest level of medical and surgical care. Our physicians practice at UF Health Jacksonville and at Emerson Medical Plaza.
