General Info

About me

After obtaining my medical degree, I wanted to focus on a specialty that dealt with children and adults and that offered both medical and surgical solutions. Otorhinolaryngology fulfilled those expectations and also allowed me to focus on pathologies dealing with ears, nose and throat. I also enjoy the using the latest state of the art technologies in dealing with head and neck issues.
