A Message To Our Patients

alt text
Welcome to the Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose, & Throat) Section within the Department of Surgery at Yale. Otolaryngology focuses on structures and activities critical for swallowing, smelling, hearing, balance, sleeping, speaking, and non-verbal communication (i.e. many of the traits that make us “human”). Professional organizations have recognized Yale ENT for the world-class care that we provide, but our highest priority and greatest sense of accomplishment comes when we hear from our patients that we have improved their lives. 

We appreciate your feedback as you move through the care process at Yale, so that we can continually improve your experience. We are excited to offer a full range of cutting-edge care, including medical and surgical care, for diseases impacting:

Our continued focus on innovation and research enables us to serve you by delivering superior quality care. As full-time academic faculty at Yale, we are able to offer cutting-edge, minimally invasive approaches and team-based care by partnering with other leading experts at Yale. 

We recognize that each medical problem is significant, that seeking therapy is difficult, and that therapy can be scary, especially when surgery or procedures are required. We are continually amazed by the courage of our patients, and this courage reminds us that our highest priority is to provide the best patient experience throughout the entire care process. 

The Yale Otolaryngology Team, thanks you for visiting our website and invites you to learn more about our services. 

Sincerely, 
The full time academic Yale Otolaryngology Faculty
