“I became an ENT physician to help people live better lives. From sinus disorders reducing our ability to smell and taste to voice and hearing problems reducing our ability to communicate with loved ones, ENT disorders can have a profound effect on our quality of life. As an otolaryngologist, I have the privilege of helping patients through these problems to improve their quality of life and stay connected with their world and loved ones.
I have been very fortunate in receiving a broad education at one of the nation’s best residency training programs. This has enabled me to expertly address the full spectrum of otolaryngologic disorders. Within this broader practice, I have specific interests in the medical and surgical treatment of nasal and sinus disorders, allergic disease, ear and hearing problems, skin lesions, and thyroid conditions.
My patients and I are a team, united in our common goal of maximizing their ENT quality of life. It is in this spirit that I always approach their problems, infused with empathy and a determination to ensure that each patient fully understands their condition and treatment options. I believe that delivering the best medicine requires not only deep medical knowledge and excellent surgical skills, but also a caring and safe environment through which a trusting relationship can be formed.”
