OVERVIEW

I chose to become a doctor because in college I had a strong interest in the biological sciences and I enjoyed discussing the knowledge I learned with friends and family and educating them on how it impacts their day-to-day life, health and well-being. I believe this proved to be a natural gravitation to becoming a physician for me and something I am still passionate about to this day. I am particularly interested in hearing restoration in the hearing impaired and restorative procedures for hearing loss. These include things as simple as getting patients hearing aids who need them, placing ear tubes for children with chronic ear infections and as complex as performing surgery to repair ruptured ear drums and damaged ear bones, and even includes surgical implantable hearing devices such as bone anchored hearing aids and cochlear implants. I am also very interested in the treatment and surgery of sinonasal diseases such as chronic sinusitis and nasal obstruction and the management of thyroid and parotid gland masses. My approach to patient care is really shared decision making. I believe that patient autonomy should be at the forefront of medical decision making and what patients ultimately decide to do with their bodies is their choice. It is my duty to educate patients on their health status so that they may make informed decisions about their health, even if I may not necessarily agree with those decisions. That being said, it is also my responsibility as a provider to strongly emphasize what I believe is in the best interest of their health. Outside of work, I love the outdoors. Whether it's hiking, climbing, camping or sailing, my wife and I cannot be outside enough. I also greatly enjoy working on and restoring classic sports cars.
