When I was young, my mother joked that I should become a doctor so that I could take care of my parents in their old age. As a boy, I took her words to heart and developed a commitment to helping others through my work.
Since completing my medical training, I have been privileged to help patients with their ear, nose, throat and allergy needs. While I enjoy all aspects of my specialty, I particularly enjoy treating pediatric patients as well as helping those with nasal and sinus issues. Some of my most rewarding work has been helping those facing the challenge of a new cancer diagnosis.
As your doctor, I will work with you to understand your ENT concerns and to develop a personalized treatment plan.
I met my wife, Anne, during medical school. She is a pediatrician and we are the proud parents of three children, Emma, Jack and James.
My interests include golf, hiking, cooking, tennis, and travel.
