Patient Care Settings

Otolaryngology, Surgery


When I was in college, I was interested in science and sort of caught between engineering and medicine as my career path. The more I learned, the more I realized I wanted to do something not merely scientific in nature but that had to do with working with people, developing rapport with others and making a difference in their lives. I chose medicine, and I've never regretted it. It is extremely gratifying to be able to help people through their challenges and help them have a higher quality of life.

"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."
