“I was drawn to medicine as a career because it marries the things in life about which I am most passionate — understanding anatomy and physiology, solving complex problems, and helping others. As an ENT specialist, I can bring these passions to bear providing medical and surgical treatment options for the full range of ENT-related problems.
From allergies to cancer, treatment of head and neck health issues requires a thoughtful, compassionate approach. So, my patient care philosophy focuses on patient engagement — listening to their concerns, hearing their stories, and breaking down their problems in a way they can understand. No two patients are the same and I feel this individualized approach lets people know they are special and helps keeps them involved in their healthcare decision-making.
While I treat the full spectrum of ENT issues, I am also fellowship trained in Head and Neck Surgical Oncology & Microvascular Reconstruction, a subspecialty dedicated to treating masses, tumors and cancers of the head and neck through open, endoscopic and robotic surgical methods. My broad training allows me to treat patients with complex pathologies from start to finish ensuring continuity or care while providing the gold standard of treatment and reconstruction.
Patients of all ages are welcomed.”
