Dr. Weissbrod's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Weissbrod "Philip Weissbrod, MD, joined the faculty in 2011 as an assistant professor of surgery in the Division of Otolaryngology, and serves as the director of the Center for Voice and Swallowing. He is certified by the the American Board of Otolaryngology and is fellowship trained in laryngology, a subspecialty that encompasses voice, swallowing, and upper airway disorders. Dr. Weissbrod is attracted to laryngology because it encompasses the most human of functions: breathing, talking, and swallowing. Eating and communicating are at the root of how we function on a societal and cultural level. Addressing these issues can lead to significant quality of life improvements, especially in patients who are professional voice users or who have complex disease processes such as head and neck cancer, stroke, or neurologic disease. Dr. Weissbrod prides himself on patient education and believes that a patient's understanding of his or her condition is the first and one of the most important steps in treatment."

in Carlsbad |
Dr. Weissbrod is kind and knowledgeable. He diagnosed my condition quickly and performed the procedure to correct it two weeks later. I felt relieved to be under his care and confident that he knew how to heal me. He personally followed up with me twice after my procedure to see how I was doing. ...more

So he's a voice specialist & if you fill out online form You CAN NOT make an appt unless you call him? I have NO voice, which is why I want to see him in the 1st place so I can't call ? Does this make any sense..
