WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I provide comprehensive care of ear, nose, and throat problems. I have particular interest in surgical treatments for obstructive sleep apnea, offering some of the most novel approaches to provide a permanent solution to sleep apnea. I also have interest in nasal and sinus problems. As a Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy, I manage the allergy program (allergy shots and allergy drops), and I care for patients with some of the most chronic sinus diseases. I have now more than 15 years of experience caring for children and adult patients with routine issues (like ear infections, tonsil problems) and complex problems (like head and neck masses and cancers, thyroid problems). My clinic is next to Duke Raleigh Hospital, where we've built an excellent team of fellow otolaryngologists, nurses and medical assistants, front office staff, and therapists. We look forward to meeting you.
