Specialized ear, nose and throat care for your child

For over 40 years, our ENT specialty group has been serving the needs of South Snohomish, North King County, and the greater Puget Sound region – and many of our patients are children. We understand and pay attention to the special care required to evaluate and treat younger patients. It’s no easy task to entrust the care and health of your child to someone else, and we don’t take that choice lightly. Know that when you choose to work with the care team at Puget Sound ENT, you are working with experienced specialists who go above and beyond to make sure your child is receiving the best and safest ear, nose and throat treatment available.

Our pediatric otolaryngology team is led by specialists and surgeons with many years of experience, working together with your family to achieve optimum results for your child.

We specialize in the following childhood ENT diseases:

As a multi-disciplinary group dedicated to the care of children, our doctors, nurses and support staff understand the special needs of children and do their best to minimize pain, discomfort and anxiety. Offering a full spectrum of therapies and procedures, rest assured, there’s reason Puget Sound ENT is the premiere ENT group in the Puget Sound region, and we consider it a privilege to work with your family and your child.

Our care-centric audiologists can perform in-depth testing to determine if children could benefit from a cochlear implant or hearing aid, providing support before and after.
From the first visit to pre/post-surgery, our medical staff always walks the entire family through the process, step-by-step, alleviating concerns and answering all questions along the way.
Expect compassionate care for infants, children and adolescents with ear, nose, and throat disorders including deviated septums, ear infections, rhinitis, sinusitis, tonsillitis, and more.
With two accessible locations in Edmonds and Mill Creek, we schedule patient appointments as soon as possible, maintain open communication lines, and provide 24-hour support to established and post-surgical patients.

“Puget Sound ENT has been my families’ provider for many years. They have provided the highest level of care for my two children. Six years ago, my daughter discovered a lump on the side of her neck, which grew quickly. Dr. Tyler Kimbrough performed a delicate surgery and I had complete trust that he was the best doctor for this type of procedure. Not only did he do an amazing job at carefully removing everything that needed to be removed, he did his incision on a neck line, so the result is nearly an invisible scar. My son on the other hand, has had chronic ear infections since he was a baby. After several surgeries over the years, my son has only had a couple ear infections in the past two plus years, which is scientifically less than before. I highly recommend Dr. Kimbrough and Puget Sound ENT. They’re experts at examining, diagnosing, and treating patients with top-notch care. Dr. Kimbrough is a kind, compassionate doctor and I am very thankful.”
