Learn about Dr. Anand

Care Philosophy

A native of New Orleans, Dr. Anand received his undergraduate degree in Neuroscience from the Johns Hopkins University.  He then went on to Tulane University School of Medicine and received his medical degree in 2006.  He stayed on at Tulane to complete a one year internship in General Surgery and a four year residency in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.  After graduating from residency in 2011, he relocated to Charleston, South Carolina for a one year fellowship in advanced head and neck cancer surgery and microvascular reconstruction at the Medical University of South Carolina.

In July 2012, Dr. Anand returned to New Orleans to work at the Ochsner Clinic.  During this time he founded the Snoring Center and focused primarily on advanced sleep and sinus disorders, until founding his own practice, GNO Snoring & Sinus, in late 2014.

Dr. Anand is uniquely qualified in that he is the only fellowship trained ear, nose and throat physician in the region with an exclusive focus on treating sleep and sinus disorders.  As a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine he is active in educating his peers and the public on the successes and failures of different treatment options, through invited talks, academic lectures and media appearances.

Patient Comments (16)
in Metairie, LA |
In and out! I had a time crunch due to my work lunch and I told the office staff about that concern. Instead of saying, 'we will see you when we can,' they said 'We completely understand. We will get you going.' In the next 5 minutes I was scanned and the doctor came in the room. They were very accommodating. Great place. I just found my new ENT doctor!

Excellent level of service! The customer service at this office is of a high quality. Staff is very polite and always friendly . Dr. Anand always smiles when walks in the room and is truly interested in your concerns. I have been coming here for 2 years now and recommend this to anyone with ENT issues.

My daughter came here for sinus problems. She has been having lots of sinuses and congestion for years. She has been treated with medicine after medicine without relief. During our visit with Dr. Anand he did a CT Scan and saw polyps! It's frustrating to know that so many other people missed this and the polyps are the reason. Everyone kept giving her medications, no one bothered to look. Thank you, Dr. Anand, for finding the problem. We are on our way to being treated.

I traveled from St. Rose to see Dr. Anand. I have heard he is kind and caring, but was more impressed in person. He took the time to explain my sinus issues and showed me an XRay as well. The level of attention and thoroughness here is quite high. I recommend this to anyone with sinus issues.

Great with kids. Brought my daughter who snores very loudly. Other doctors kept giving medicine. It was not working at all. Dr. Anand used a camera to look in her nose and saw large adenoids. He performed surgery and now she sleeps better.

Dr Anand explained the procedure perfectly, then performed my surgery flawlessly and painlessly. I've seen many, many, ENT doctors and none surpass the caring, quality, expertise, and delivery of Dr Anand. His office is a calming center which puts the patient at ease before an office visit or procedure and Dr Anand has a way of making one more at ease once he enters the room. Dr Anand also has an outstanding office staff. I am so grateful I found Dr Anand, and I recommend him often.
