My goal as a pediatric ear, nose, and throat surgeon is to provide compassionate, patient-driven care. I believe the most important part of a patient's visit is listening. I make it a point to listen to all of my patient's concerns and answer all of their questions before formulating a management plan together. I like to give my patients all of their options for treatment and guide them so they can make the best decision for their child. While I am a surgical specialist, I do understand that surgery is not for everyone and every case needs to be treated individually. If surgery is the chosen treatment, counseling patients thoroughly is critical to make families comfortable through the process. I treat all families with the same dignity and respect as I would want my own family to be treated.
