Biographical Statement: 

I am board certified in otolaryngology – head & neck surgery and have been a faculty member with Henry Ford since 2010. As a general otolaryngologist, I see patients of all ages, from premature babies to older adults and will be happy to take care any ear, nose, or throat surgery problem from tonsillitis to sleep apnea to sinus problems to broken facial bones to diagnosing your head & neck cancer and more. 

Most importantly, I promise to treat you like a person, not a disease, as we work together to fix what’s bothering you.

Research Interests:
My interests are in process improvement and education.
