ELEVATE YOUR HEALTH
As a board certified Otolaryngologist I am both a physician and a surgeon. My mission and goal is to elevate you to your highest level of personal health. With this in mind, my first consideration is to assist you from a medical perspective looking at your health and your environment. Medications are integrated into your treatment plan when they are safe and beneficial. Surgery is considered based on your individual needs and, when used in a conscientious fashion, will serve to diminish or resolve your illness.
