Ask your primary doc: If you need a second opinion, ask your primary care doctor to make a referral for you. He/she will have all the records and can send it to your next referral. You can even ask your current ENT for a name for a second opinion. Good specialist should not be offended if a patient asked for a second opinion.

See Laryngologist: See a voice specialist (Laryngologist) usually but not always associated with a major academic center. You can look at the American Academy of Otolaryngology--Head and Neck Surgery website for physicians.
