My work as a laryngologist focuses on the care of patients with problems affecting the voice, swallowing, and breathing. All three areas are vital to our ability to interact with others and the world around us. Consequently, an impairment in any of these can be life-changing. I approach the doctor-patient relationship as a partnership anchored in mutual trust. My goal is to understand my patient's concerns and work together to find medical and/or surgical treatment options that meet their individual needs. The most fulfilling part of my work is helping people return to doing the things they enjoy. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, and spending time with my family and friends.
