Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Geraghty "We combine critical analysis of the advantages of new technology and procedures with a strong philosophy of patient care. We do not defer important aspects of patient care, evaluation and follow up to other providers. My personal emphasis is on progress with minimally invasive surgery for various conditions, but particularly thyroid/ parathyroid disorders and sinus disease, and sleep apnea surgery, within a full service office which includes Plastic Surgery, Audiology and Allergy divisions."
