Due to their developing anatomy, children are more prone to ear, nose, and throat issues than adults. In this recent article in Community Impact, Palak B. Patel, MD, Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) at ARC Round Rock, discusses causes and treatments of many common pediatric ENT issues and the relationship between your ARC Pediatrician and ARC ENT specialists.
"Since we [have] connected communication between physicians, it's so much easier if a pediatrician is concerned about something," said Dr. Patel when explaining the unique benefits of connected care at ARC.
