Meet Dr. Sillers

Michael J. Sillers, M.D., an esteemed ENT specialist, completed his undergraduate education at the University of Alabama in 1984, followed by his medical degree from the same institution in 1988. His postgraduate training included an internship in general surgery and a residency in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, which he completed in 1993. Further honing his expertise, Dr. Sillers undertook a fellowship in rhinology and sinus surgery at the Medical College of Georgia. In 1994, he joined the faculty at UAB, where he made significant contributions to the field of ENT, culminating in his promotion to Professor of Surgery in 2003. He notably held the prestigious James J. Hicks Chair in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery until July 2005. Dr. Sillers is currently at the forefront of ENT care as the founder of the Alabama Nasal and Sinus Center in Birmingham, AL, where he continues to advance the field of otolaryngology through his dedicated practice and expertise.

Meet Dr. Lay

As a dedicated ENT Doctor and Otolaryngologist, I have been an integral member of the Alabama Nasal & Sinus Center family since 2013. My journey with this esteemed center began when I met Dr. Sillers, a renowned ENT Surgeon, in 2002 during my training at UAB. It’s an honor to regard Dr. Sillers not only as a mentor but also a dear friend. Together, we’ve collaborated to establish a practice that stands out, both in the unparalleled quality of care we provide and the warm, compassionate manner in which it is delivered. We deeply value the trust our patients place in us, and it’s our constant endeavor to ensure that each visit to our center leaves you feeling better and more reassured.

Meet Tiffaney Lard, FNP-C

I am a native of Huntsville, AL. After marrying in 2007, my family relocated to Montevallo, AL where we lived for 11 years until building a home in Alabaster in 2018. I am a proud mother of two sons, ages 20 and 14. I began my medical career as a patient care technician in the Emergency Room at Huntsville Hospital in 1997. I accepted a job closer to home in Alabaster at Shelby Baptist Medical Center as a Surgical Services Charge Nurse. While working at Shelby for over 7 years, I realized how much I missed the direct patient care that I had experienced earlier in my career and decided to further my career as a family nurse practitioner. Today, I am privileged to work alongside esteemed ENT specialists and Otolaryngologists, Dr. Sillers and Dr. Lay, at the Alabama Nasal & Sinus Center. This collaboration has indeed been a rewarding phase of my professional journey.
