"My goal as an experienced ENT specialist is for my patients to have the best quality of care, the resolution they're looking for and to leave knowing what is going on and what needs to be done to achieve their objectives. Ultimately, I know that, as a physician, I'm here for my patients. It isn't the other way around. People need doctors. People need care... and that care needs to be appropriate and effective. For me, this means always putting each person's individual needs first and then committing all my training, skill, knowledge, resources and heartfelt best into helping them. This is the commitment I make each and every day."

Ratings & Reviews
At URMC, we believe that patients should be empowered to make the right decisions regarding their personal healthcare. To do so, transparency is critical. URMC partners with Press Ganey, to survey our patients about all aspects of their care experience. We are now putting this pertinent information at your fingertips by displaying star ratings for our providers along with anonymous patient comments on our website. This will help you make better-informed choices about how and with whom you seek care. Click here to learn more about the surveys used to generate this vital information.
