Being an otolaryngologist allows me to work with people at every stage of their life. From young children to senior citizens, every patient is unique and equally important. I view patient care as a privilege, and strive to treat all patients the same way I would expect for myself or family. While I am comfortable working with patients with a wide variety of concerns, my main interest include diseases of the paranasal sinuses and the ear. When not working, I enjoy spending time outside with my wife and dog 'Buddy'. My favorite activities include fishing, hiking, canoeing and golf. I also spend time cooking, rooting for the Minnesota Twins and reading.
