I am a general otolaryngologist who specializes in diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the ears, nose, and throat. Though I treat patients of all ages in all areas of otolaryngology, I have special interests in rhinology (nose and sinus diseases), allergy, pediatric otolaryngology, and head and neck tumors.

I was born in Dothan, Alabama and spent my first two years in Troy, where my parents were completing studies in education. Most of my early childhood and adolescence was spent in Pace, Florida, which is a small town just east of Pensacola. I left home after graduating from Pace High School to attend the University of Florida. While there, I became very involved in various student leadership activities and even found time to play football for the Gators under Coach Spurrier. I loved college so much, I got two degrees and spent another two years in Gainesville while my new bride, Simone, finished her degree in health science education. She has been with me through medical school at South Alabama and residency at UAB and deserves a ton of credit for any success I have achieved in my life. Simone and I now have three great children who we are pleased to watch and wonder as they grow up way too fast.

I have been part of the Alabama Nasal & Sinus Center family since 2013. I met Dr. Sillers in 2002 while training at UAB. It is my great privilege to call Dr. Sillers my mentor and friend. We have partnered together to create a practice that is truly different from the norm. That difference is found in the level of excellence of the care you receive and the joyful spirit in which the care is delivered. We treasure the trust you have shown us by allowing us to take care of your medical concerns and hope that your life is a little better after coming to see us.
