Pediatric Care

For our youngest patients, we combine advanced ear, nose, and throat treatments with a care experience that’s designed just for your child. Visits that aren’t scary. Doctors that listen and speak their language. And clinic settings that encourage kids to keep being kids.

About Pediatric Care

Ear, Nose & Throat Specialty Care offers the full spectrum of pediatric otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat) care. Our providers personally evaluate and treat thousands of children each year throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding areas, but because we know each case is unique, we take the time to reassure both the child and the parents throughout treatment.

In addition to providing routine pediatric otolaryngology care, our pediatric experts (Drs. Berman, Hill, and Soumekh) treat complex ear, nose, and throat problems, often working in multidisciplinary teams to achieve the highest level of care. For your convenience, we are able to see patients and perform surgery in the majority of the major Twin Cities pediatric hospitals, in addition to select ambulatory surgery centers:

My daughter Vanessa can finally speak and hear because of Dr. Berman! I would recommend anyone with children who are concerned about their child’s hearing or speech delay to go see him. Not only is he a great Physician, he is also great with kids which makes the visit go a lot smoother.”
