At Cincinnati Children’s, the collaborative approach for patients with complex medical conditions results in better care and patient satisfaction.



I am a pediatric ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctor. As an otolaryngologist, I provide care for general and complex ear, nose and throat conditions.

I specialize in pediatric laryngology (airway, swallowing and voice disorders), and head and neck pathology (congenital anomalies of the head and neck, pediatric thyroid disorders and vascular malformations).

At Cincinnati Children’s, the collaborative approach for patients with complex medical conditions results in better care and patient satisfaction. I work with many multidisciplinary teams and clinics, including specialists in aerodigestive, thyroid and voice conditions. I also work with other doctors and nurses at the Cincinnati Children’s clinic for fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) and the Hemangioma and Vascular Malformation Center (HVMC).

I find otolaryngology to be very rewarding. There’s a wonderful mix of medicine, procedures and surgery. Treatment can make profound improvements in the quality of life for a child and family.

My research centers on those areas where I am clinically active. My academic work focuses on medical simulation and resident teaching. I’m working to improve resident education and patient outcomes through the incorporation of medical simulation in education.

When I'm not at the hospital, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children. We like to be outdoors, biking, hiking and skiing.
