About Me

I genuinely feel fortunate to have a career where I can focus on improving the lives of others, especially children. As an otolaryngologist, I am focused on the improvement of the ear, nose and throat health of patients. I’m fellowship-trained in pediatric otolaryngology and my focus is on pediatric patients. However, my training and background has included caring for adult patients with complex issues and I continue to see some adults. I perform a wide variety of procedures from the more common ones such as tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy to complicated ear and neck procedures. My ultimate goal is to provide the best care to my patients so that they can return to a healthy life with little need to return in the future.
