He was joined by Dr. Michael Malotte in 1995. Dr. Lisa Molin joined the practice in 2000. Together they form the only single specialty Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery practice on the central coast. To become an Otolaryngologist certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology, each applicant must complete four years of medical school. This is followed by five or six years of post graduate education including at least one year of general surgery and three years of Otolaryngology.
