  Clinical Interests  

As an otolaryngologist, I care for all areas of head and neck disease both surgical and medical. I also have a special interest in pediatric problems; but perform surgery for neck masses, diseases of the sinuses, ear disease and also for diseases of the thyroid glands, parathyroid gland and salivary glands as well as facial trauma. Patients are seen only by referral from their primary care physician.

  Educational Interests  

My personal objectives in the education of the resident are to make them aware of what the specialty of otolaryngology encompasses. I hope to educate them in how to do a comprehensive head and neck examination and then apply this information to an understanding of head and neck pathology so as to arrive at a plan of diagnosis and treatment. Also, to expose the resident to a broad spectrum of ENT surgical cases and their postoperative care and to make the resident aware of what private practice is like based on my 26+ years of personal experience in private practice.
