Dr. Burgess' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Burgess "I was born in Deadwood, South Dakota, and grew up in Rapid City. I graduated from Stevens High School and went on to the University of South Dakota for college. After obtaining my undergraduate degree, I went to the University of Iowa for medical school and stayed there for residency in otolaryngology (ENT). I practiced in Montana for six years and then returned to the Black Hills to be close to family. As an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist, I treat and manage conditions related to the ears, nose, sinuses, larynx, mouth and throat. I practice general ENT on patients of all ages, with a special interest in allergies. In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors. I like to go hiking, biking, camping, hunting and fishing."
