As an otolaryngologist and fellowship-trained laryngologist, my primary interest is disorders of voice, airway and swallowing, but I believe in the holistic model of care and try to reframe every patient complaint within the larger framework of their overall health. Moreover, I believe that the physician-patient relationship is an essential component of holistic care; in my experience greater trust leads to better outcomes, and I strive to reflect that philosophy in my practice.

I am happily married and have two wonderful girls. I completed medical school and otolaryngology residency in Philadelphia, and then moved to Augusta, Georgia for an additional year of fellowship training. I look forward to providing subspecialty laryngology care to residents of El Paso County as well as Southern Colorado and surrounding states.
