Care Philosophy

As and otolaryngologist who also does cosmetic and plastic surgery, I feel that I can provide comprehensive care for numerous issues involving the head and neck region. I strive to provide care that is tailored to the needs of each individual, not one approach for everyone. I take everyone's concerns seriously and want everyone to leave feeling like I addressed their problem effectively and compassionately.

Niantic, CT |
A wonderful, conservative and thorough doctor. Respectively answers questions and doesn't make you feel rushed.
Norwich ,ct |
Dr. Culviner takes meticulous care to ensure all concerns are addressed. For the detail oriented patient who is willing to spend the time you will not be disappointed with his care. You may wait a few minutes but when you are in your appointment he gives you his full true attention.

Niantic, CT |
He is very thorough and very likable. He makes you feel like you are important.
in Mansfield, ct |
He performed a procedure on me and the doc didn't even do the procedure correctly. After getting "strange" results from the procedure, Dr. Culviner suggested I get my tonsils removed, then 5 minutes later recommended I have surgery on my neck, then changed it to me getting a guided procedure (which would be the same EXACT procedure he already did). Changed doctors and found a good one. That same procedure was done by new doc and found out I have cancer.
