About

I grew up in the State of Idaho and from a very young age knew that I wanted to help improve the lives of children and their families.  After suffering from cholesteatoma surgery (an ear growth) as a child, I was destined to become a pediatric ear nose and throat surgeon.  I have practiced Pediatric ENT in Boise, Idaho for the last two decades and as the only fellowship trained Pediatric ENT for the entire region I had the opportunity to treat a full range of pediatric ENT issues including breathing difficulties, airway and voice disorders, swallowing difficulties and aspiration, sinusitis, sleep apnea, ear disease, speech and hearing difficulties, palate insufficiency, chronic infections, and head and neck masses. Throughout my practice, my true passion has been as an advocate for children with hearing loss.  It is the ultimate reward for me personally and professionally to create an environment where young children can gain the gift of hearing and be integrated into the main stream of society.  As founding director of one of the most successful and innovative cochlear implant programs in the country, my team and I were able to develop patient support systems that result in highly successful outcomes.

It is an honor for me to join the staff at Texas Children’s hospital where I can pursue my patient care passions at the highest levels of my profession.   Here at TCH we are now applying the highest innovative principles and my team and I will be providing the highest level of pediatric ENT patient care found anywhere in the country.  I believe children are more successful when health care professionals, speech pathologists, audiologists, educators and most importantly, families collaborate as a team to find the most beneficial program to achieve the child's success. 

It is an honor to be your doctor, I look forward to meeting with you and helping your family with ENT issues.
