I am new to Amarillo (October 2018), although not to medical practice.  I come from a family filled with doctors, and was actually born in Baltimore at Johns Hopkins Hospital while my father was training there.   I returned to Hopkins for my undergraduate education, and went on to medical school and residency at UPenn, where I met my wife.  We later settled in Florida, and I had my own practice for 20 years.  After our kids went off to school and jobs out-of-state, we visited Amarillo and loved the candor and kindness of its people.  We had enjoyed visiting Texas many times over the years, but we found Amarillo to be a truly special place and decided to make it our new home.  My practice has focused on the management of general ears, nose and throat disorders, with particular interest in nasal issues, sinus surgery, and facial skin cancer.  I also have extensive experience treating geriatric patients.  I am excited to join this community and honored to serve the people of Amarillo.
