To become an Otolaryngologist certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology, each applicant must complete four years of medical school.

Patient Comments (2)

Very disappointed in my visit with Dr. Stewart. Having dizziness and was hoping he could help me but he was very disinterested in my visit. Offered no resolution nor diagnosed my problem simply saying he was not the guy who could help me and sent me on my way.
