As an Otolaryngologist/Head and Neck Surgeon, my goal is to provide the best care to my patients for head and neck problems through a thorough and thoughtful evaluation, as well as offering up to date management options. Often patients have more than one diagnosis contributing to their problem, and I try to consider relevant diagnoses to help identify and treat my patients. My additional training and experience in Allergy is an important adjunct in helping manage a variety of ENT problems.
