Within St. Joseph’s/Candler Physician Network – ENT is the subspecialty of Pediatric Otolaryngology.

Our physicians, Dr. Michael Poole and Dr. Stephanie Ambrose, are the region’s only fellowship-trained pediatric Ear, Nose and Throat specialists. Pediatricians often call upon our physicians when standard treatments fail and the expertise of Dr. Poole and Dr. Ambrose becomes necessary.

Dr. Poole treats more adenoid and tonsil patients than anyone combined and has the lowest rate of complication and significantly lower recovery time based on patient response. Meanwhile, Dr. Ambrose is the region’s only fellowship-trained pediatric ENT who performs cleft lip and cleft palate corrective surgery. Those specialties combined with numerous other conditions we treat make our pediatric ENT practice the perfect place just for kids.

Parents’ minds also can be at ease by the fact that our team is extremely conservative in recommending surgery. Our physicians are proficient in nonsurgical management of pediatric ENT conditions. Some of the common conditions and symptoms our pediatric ENTs treat include:

  • Ear infections
  • Ear fluid
  • Ear pain
  • Nose and throat problems (tonsils and adenoids)
  • Snoring
  • Loud breathing
  • Sleep apnea
  • Swallowing difficulties
  • Cleft lip and cleft palate
  • Airway problems
  • Tumors/abnormal growths of the head and neck
