About

Bio

Tell us about your background, specialties, interests... After being in academics for 20 yrs, I decided to take a break from the rat race and slow down a little. The stress level was out of control with a boss that did not have my interests in sight. I am happily in a private practice with a physician who sought me out, once I left my previous employer. I am teaching residents from three different residency programs and am loving it. I am doing procedures in the office and am enjoying the flexibility of private practice and the many new opportunities to do procedures I could never do as part of a health care facility (like balloon sinuplasty). I am still doing a far share of voice and swallowing work which is my true passion. I am also doing a great amount of allergy.

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.
