When should I report to the laryngological office?
Whenever we are concerned about long-term symptoms from the ears, nose or throat, and in case of recurrent infections of the upper respiratory tract. It is also worth knowing that a laryngologist can help us get rid of snoring, which can have negative consequences for our health. Of course, a visit to the laryngological office is absolutely necessary if you notice any symptoms of worsening hearing.
Laryngologist – waiting time for a visit
For a visit to the laryngologist under the insurance of the federal tax service, you have to wait quite a long time. These are not as long-term as in the case of, for example, an endocrinologist, but often the deadline has to wait from several to several weeks. The situation varies from province to province, affecting m.in.:
- location of clinics – the most besieged are those in the city center;
- qualification and experience of a laryngologist – some laryngologists are more popular and enjoy greater patient confidence;
- the amount of the contract with the NHS-the lower the amount of the contract, the less patients can accept the laryngologist.
We make an appointment after getting a referral to the laryngologist. We can do this in person, by phone, and in some clinics even via the internet.
If time is of the essence, we can arrange a private visit. Such a visit is paid. The price of a private laryngological visit depends on the city and the qualification of the laryngologist and is approx. For such a visit, you usually have to wait a maximum of about a week.
