I am a pediatric otolaryngologist with a subspecialty focus in complex sinonasal diseases, as well as tumors and other disorders of the skull base. My goal is to provide exceptional, comprehensive care for patients and their families. I believe a child’s healing begins with a mutual understanding of the disease process and collaborative decision-making between the physician and family. I also understand that management of certain complex diseases requires a multidisciplinary, team-based approach, and thus, work alongside highly skilled providers in other pediatric subspecialties to formulate individualized treatment plans for every patient.

Clinical Interests:

Allergic rhinitis, nasal obstruction, acute and chronic rhinosinusitis, fungal sinusitis, cystic fibrosis sinusitis, post-transplant sinusitis, sinonasal tumors, and tumors and other disorders of the skull base

Research Interests:

Chronic sinusitis, sinonasal tumors, skull base lesions, multi-institutional collaborative studies, quality improvement and outcomes
