Bio

Trained in surgery in Chicago, ENT residency at the University of Iowa. I am a tenured Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology, Head & Neck Surgery at the University of Kentucky. I have a very busy clinical practice and teach medical students and residents. I specialize in nasal and sinus problems including chronic sinusitis and allergy as well as voice and swallowing problems, sleep apnea and other ear nose and throat problems.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
