Per title, has anyone used a really good ENT specialist for kids?? also, is it ok to use a normal ENT specialist??not just one for kids??? DH is see'ing Francis Chai in West Perth soon - wondering if its ok to book my 3yold son into see him also??? any recommendations? thanks in advance. son has snoring problems and been told that his tonsils are extra large, so looking at getting them removed.

Ive seen Tim Cooney and also Dr Paul Yuen.

Both great, Dr Yuen is usually easier to get into and is less likely to remove more than is necessary. I found Dr C a little too keen to remove all components for no reason other than "incase they cause an issue later on".

Paul Yuen at Murdoch is awesome! He's treated both our boys for tonsils, grommets, adenoids etc!

thanks for the info - GP hasn't recommended anyone from Murdoch although its one we requested, not sure why??? recommended someone in Nedlands on Hampton Rd - anyone used them??? bit worried as when I rang I apparently could get in in about 2 weeks or so ... was surprised as most specialists have about a 3-4 months waiting list ... are most EarNoseThroat specialists like this??

we got our referral, were in to see tim cooney within 2weeks and were in having the grommets 2 weeks after that....so i guess if you just jag it you dont have a long wait!

The ENT in Hampton rd Nedlands would be Dr Harvey Coates - one of the best kids ENT docs in WA! My DD goes to him and he is great! She has had her grommets put in with him last year and is having adnoids and tonsils out in January too. You'd have no probs if you went with Dr Coates!

We saw Dr Shyan Vijayasekaran for DD in August, he was brilliant. We had an appt to see him on a Wednesday, and because he knew we were going into a 4night stay at Ngala the following Monday he managed to squeeze DD in on the Friday (2days after seeing him) to have her grommets put in! Then while we were in Ngala DD got checked over by the pead there and she couldnt see one of the grommets, so she phoned Dr Vijayasekaran and he said to bring her in first thing the following morning and he would see her first to check. Thankfully they were both still in her ears!

I'm a big fan of both Harvey Coates and Dr VJ.  Dr Coates has done both my kids (Tonsils, adenoids, grommets), but I knew Dr VJ through work a while ago, and would have happily seen him too.

St John of God Subi is lovely too.

Hello all

Because we have rules about not discussing doctors publicly - including making recommendations - I need to close this topic. Please read the pinned post at the top of the WA forum. Thanks. original.gif
