When to see an ENT D: It varies... It depends on the problem and the experience of the g.P. Anytime a patient is not cured by simple measures they are a candidate for a specialty referral. Often a gp doesn't have the time to sort through a difficult problem like dizziness so they refer to an ENT for further tests and treatment.
