NYU Langone Medical Center, New York, NY

American Board of Otolaryngology

Medical Interests

Diseases of the nasal sinuses, ear, voice, thyroid, parathyroid, salivary glands, general otolaryngology

My Philosophy

My philosophy towards medicine is simple: start with conservative, non-invasive treatments and reserve surgery only when all other options are exhausted. I believe in establishing a strong doctor-patient relationship through good communication — every patient should walk out of my office with a good understanding of what’s causing their symptoms and the roadmap for treating it.

I received my undergraduate education from the University of Pennsylvania, my medical education from Stony Brook University, and my residency training from NYU’s Department of Otolaryngology, one of the top head and neck surgery training programs in the country.

In my spare time, I enjoy a variety of outdoor activities and spending time with my family. I consider myself extremely lucky to love my job and find it very gratifying to be able to help my patients overcome their ailments.

What I can do for you

The ear contains not only our hearing organs but also our balance organs. Diseases of the ear thus not only affect our ability to hear, but can cause dizziness, ringing in the ears, watery drainage, and overall loss of quality of life. Complicated disease processes often require careful workup and treatment by specialists like myself. I offer medical and surgical treatments for the following conditions:

  • otitis media
  • otitis externa
  • vertigo
  • hearing loss
  • perforated eardrum

Nose And Sinus

Sinonasal disease can cause significant reduction in the quality of life. Not being able to breathe, smell, and cope with sinus pressure can affect your mood and productivity. Your symptoms may be caused by sinusitis, allergy, nasal polyps, anatomical defects such as a deviated septum or enlarged turbinates, and even autoimmune disease. Proper diagnosis and treatment are paramount to achieving a successful and durable outcome. I strongly believe in conservative and non-invasive treatments, reserving surgery only in the most severe cases. If surgery is needed, I provide cutting-edge minimally invasive, endoscopic treatments.

Endocrine And Salivary Gland

(THYROID/PARATHYROID/PAROTID/SUBMANDIBULAR)

Diseases of the endocrine and salivary glands often initially manifest as small lumps and bumps in the head and neck region. The majority of these masses will never cause problems, but in some instances, they may grow large and unsightly, create hormonal imbalances, and harbor cancer. I provide screening and monitoring for these lumps and bumps, and if needed, biopsy and surgical excision.

Voice/Vocal Cord

Our vocal cords not only produce sound, but help protect our airway from aspiration. Vocal cord disorders can cause significant impacts on our quality of life by inhibiting our abilities to communicate, eat, and drink. Our First Hill clinic is equipped with high definition laryngoscopy and stroboscopy to help diagnose and treat voice and vocal cord disorders.
