  • Interests

  • “I love being an ENT physician.

I enjoy being a clinician and a surgeon. It is also a specialty where I get to see babies, kids, and adults. I have been in practice long enough now that some of the babies I’ve treated, now see me as adults and often bring their kids in for care. That is pretty special.”
