What kind of doctor specializes in sinus & breathing problems?

Filed in Category Pediatric Specialists

I am 16, and I’ve had sinus and breathing problems for quite some time now.

My mom just got us good health insurance, so she wants to take me to a specialist, but we have no idea who specializes in that kind of thing?

What are they called?

    You need a pediatric respirologist. They can usually be found in hospitals running clinics. Search “pediatric respirologist” at your local hospital.

    ENTs can be good, but they tend to specialize more in masses and tumours and things that can be surgically removed.

    By the way, before you can see a specialist, you usually need a referral letter from a GP or your family doctor or at least a walk in clinic. Also, when you do that, the GP can direct you to the right specialist, AND give you their address/phone/name etc.

    Your GP is the best one to see. If he/she can’t handle it then they will refer you probably to an ENT doctor. But most sinus and breathing problems if the breathing problems are related to the sinuses, can be handled very nicely by your GP.
    God bless and keep you well.
