Clinical Interests
My clinical interests include treatment of voice disorders, complex dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), endoscopic management of laryngeal cancers, airway reconstruction, and diseases of the upper airway. I am also interested in office based laryngeal, airway, and swallowing interventions.

Care Philosophy
I provide individualized care, with the highest level of integrity, to each patient affected by voice, swallowing, and airway disorders. I bring cutting edge knowledge and techniques to patient care. Most importantly, I approach patient care with a team philosophy that incorporates the patient, family, and other healthcare practitioners into the decision making process.

Personal Interests
In my spare time, I enjoy long distance running, mountaineering, music, and eating.

Volunteer Activities
I am dedicated to improving health in the domestic populations. My prior activities have included helping to run and staff free medical clinics, and the founding of the national non-profit Ride for World Health.
