What doctor do you see to have a transnasal esophagoscopy done? I've been having a chronic cough and tickling in throat. I've had a chest x ray done by my primary doctor. Chest x ray was normal. I've had allergy testing also done by an allergist. Next time I see him he's going to check me for post nasal drip. I do have allergies but so far no medicines help not at all. I've had another doctor put a mirror down the throat and doctor says throat looks fine. Next step I think I should have a scope to look down the esophagus.

Go to an  ENT that specializes in Laryngeal Reflux, and Neurogenic cough, and does the transnasal esophagoscopy right in their office. I have a chronic cough for 30+ years before I was diagnosed correctly. I had been to allergists, gastroenterologists, other ENTs, pulmonologists, had chest xrays etc. . None of them were able to diagnose me correctly, so they never treated me correctly, until up to 2 years ago I found the doctor that knew exactly what was going on with me.
Good Luck
