Why ENT Care Now?

The notion of having good health care is taking the shift from Mortality care to Morbidity care. Out of the 5 special senses, the ENT specialist has three senses under his care, they are Hearing, Smell and Taste. There is another sixth newly counted special Sense of Balance which is linked to ear. So the concern of hearing, taste, smell, voice and balance come under the zone of ENT. So wellness care and morbidity are deficient without ENT care.
