Practice Priorities
Patients: "Listen to the patient.”

Specialty: “My two areas of clinical care are the surgical management of chronic sinusitis and participation in the UW multi-disciplinary approach to patients with head and neck tumors.”

Research Support
"I am Principal Investigator on the departmental NIH Training Grant which supports intensive research training for each of our residents. It is the goal of our program to recruit, train, and ultimately place individuals in productive academic careers.

My personal research has pursued investigations regarding quality of life in patients with sinusitis, head and neck cancer, and the development of data systems to support national and international collaborative research."
