“Our role as physicians is to provide answers to challenging questions, allay concerns, reduce suffering, and improve quality of life. We have an obligation to provide our patients with a plan when they take the time to see a doctor”
As an otolaryngologist, I have the opportunity to provide care for a gamut of head and neck disorders. Our patients include the very young and the very experienced. As both surgeons and clinicians, we can provide a variety of solutions to common problems such as hearing loss, the draining ear, nasal obstruction, recurring sinusitis, and tonsillitis. We provide tertiary care for more complicated conditions such as head and neck cancer.
As a laryngologist, I have the good fortune of focusing my practice on caring for the patient with hoarseness, swallowing dysfunction, and airway obstruction. I feel it vital to the patient experience to provide visual understanding of laryngeal disorders, and expect that each patient will be satisfied in our collective plan to evaluate and treat such conditions, before concluding any visit. I provide surgical and medical solutions for voice and swallowing disorders, including in office laryngeal biopsy and injection medialization. We work with our radiology colleagues to comprehensively evaluate the functional and anatomical elements of swallowing. Decisions on patient care are made collectively between physician and patient, with a full understanding of all risks, benefits, and alternatives, as this is the foundation of the reliable practice of medicine.
