Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Zavod "I am committed to caring for people using the highest standards and quality. While I see patients for general otolaryngologic (Ear, Nose and Throat) concerns, the focus of my work is reconstructive surgery of the face. As a vocalist, I also have a special interest in patients who are professional voice users. I am involved in administration of our medical group, constantly trying to improve how we care for our community."
