Practice Priorities
Patients: "Effective communication is critical for normal social, emotional and cognitive development. I am interested in helping children with deafness and those with impaired speech intelligibility.”

Specialty: "Pediatric otolaryngology is a subspecialty that focuses on issues related to the head and neck in children.”

Research Support
I am interested in clinical outcomes research in areas related to childhood communication.
