About

Bio

I am a double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. My board certifications are in Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery and in Facial Plastic Surgery.

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.
