  • I am a board-certified Otolaryngologist who joined ENT & Allergy Specialists in 2006, and became a partner in the group in 2008.

    I enjoy practicing all aspects of Otolaryngology, including Pediatrics, Sinus and allergy disorders, hearing loss, and thyroid and parathyroid cancer.

    ENT doctors have the benefit of helping patients with both medical and surgical therapies. Most of our patients can be managed with conservative medical therapy or immunotherapy such as allergy shots or allergy drops. I spend most afternoons at one of our office locations working with these patients. For those that do require surgery, I spend most mornings operating at our independent surgical center, St. Elizabeth Hospital, or Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

    ENT & Allergy Specialists is a proudly independent medical and surgical practice. I serve as a board member and managing partner of the Audiology Division, and the technology needs of our practice.

    When not working, I enjoy spending time with my 3 children and traveling with my family.
