About

Bio

My main interest is in pediatric and adult otology, neurotology, and skull base surgery. These include issues such as cochlear implants, facial nerve abnormalities, acoustic neuromas, cholesteatomas, implantable hearing aids, and other disorders of the lateral skull base.

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.

A 30-year-old female asked:

Need an ear exam: This may be due to numerous reasons / causes. I recommend that you see an otolaryngologist and obtain an audiogram. This physician will examine your ear with a microscope and look for an infection, fluid, etc. You may then need a ct scan or MRI scan or just some reassurance that nothing worrisome is there.

Popping sounds: Bubbles can be in your ear canal or middle ear, where the 3 ear bones or ossicles are located. The symptoms usually include fullness/pressure, hearing loss, and popping sounds. I recommend that you see an otolaryngologist and obtain an audiogram/hearing test.

Speech therapy: I recommend that you avoid screaming. Treating reflux can be helpful. Don't allow yourself to be overweight or obese. Avoid smoking. Consider seeing an otolaryngologist. Before considering surgery for your voice, speech therapy is most often used.
