Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Poss "I am happy to be practicing in Western New York as an Otolaryngologist.   My wife grew up in Buffalo, which is what brought our family here.  Though I am new to the region, I have been warmly welcomed.  I look forward to establishing a family-oriented ENT practice.  My goal is to treat each and every patient with respect and dignity, while competently treating their ear, nose and throat issues. My approach to patient care is to explain the diagnoses as thoroughly as possible and give alternatives, risks, and benefits of each treatment option available. I welcome patient participation and feedback. "
