Head & Neck

Are you hoarse? Having trouble swallowing?

Who We Treat

Our expertise is in diagnosing and surgically treating disorders of the head and neck. These include benign and cancerous lumps and bumps, thyroid and parathyroid problems, salivary gland conditions, voice and swallowing troubles, and skin lesion removal and reconstruction. 
We also have state-of-the-art equipment to accurately diagnose your voice problems. Our physicians have partnered with a group of speech-language pathologists at Advance Therapy of Dothan. These therapists have specialized training and a genuine interest in voice problems. The video stroboscope technology is performed in our office and allows us to record and analyze a magnified image of the larynx (voice box) which is useful for diagnosis and treatment of many voice disorders
