Dr. Omoro's Care Philosophy

My approach to patient care is one that encompasses expert clinical and surgical judgment, knowledge and skill focusing on positive patient outcomes. My staff and I believe in delivering compassionate care to the patient and their family. Education is power and I believe in remaining ahead of the game when it comes to advanced approach, technique and technology. I also believe that educating patients and their family empowers them to make better choices in their healthcare. My primary interests are General Adult and Pediatric Otolaryngology with special interests in cutaneous malignancies, endocrine otolaryngology (thyroid and parathyroid surgery and evaluation), parotid, head and neck masses, ear surgery, and diseases and surgery of the nose and sinuses.
