I am an otolaryngologist and sleep medicine subspecialist at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. I treat pediatric patients with ear infections, hearing loss (including cochlear implants), cleft palates, congenital syndromes, voice problems, and other ear, nose and throat concerns.
I also work with Memorial’s sleep medicine team treating children with sleep apnea, snoring and other sleep issues. I am passionate about helping pediatric patients improve their sleep quality, which is critical to their growth, development and function in everyday life.
I love working with children and I am proud to be the father of five wonderful children. My favorite part of my job is improving the quality of life for a child and their family.
Before joining Memorial in 2017, I served for more than 20 years in the U.S. Military caring for our servicemen and women and their families. Most recently, I served as Otolaryngology Residency Program director, director of Pediatric Otolaryngology and director of Adult Sleep Surgery at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. I was also very active in the cochlear implant program for both children and adults there. I also devoted a great deal of time teaching residents, medical students, and new physicians at Walter Reed and enjoyed having an impact on our next generation of physicians.
While in the military, I had the pleasure of making 11 trips to a community in Honduras, where we provided complex ear surgery and hearing rehabilitation to children and adults, and helped teach otolaryngologists in the country how to provide this much-needed care. It was a unique experience where we were able to return to the same community and see the impact of our work grow over time.
Now, at Joe DiMaggio, I am proud to serve with a team devoted to caring for children in the Broward community.
