Dear patients,

With the need to slow down the infection rate of COVID-19 and out of an abundance of caution for your health, we will be transitioning to more virtual care (phone and video) appointments when possible.

For any booked non-urgent appointments, particularly for patients aged 70 years or older, patients with complex medical conditions or who are immunocompromised, we will contact you beforehand to determine the safest method for your appointment.

Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time. We will do our best to ensure your health care needs are met.

Born and raised in Winnipeg, I completed both medical school and residency training at the University of Manitoba. After completing Rhinology fellowship training BC, I have been in practice in Winnipeg since 1998.

Along with being a busy ENT (Otolaryngology-Head and Neck) surgeon in Winnipeg, I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Manitoba and have helped train numerous medical students and residents. Some of my current, local, provincial, and national medical leadership positions include:

  • 2018-19 President of the Canadian Medical Association
  • Regional Secretary, North America and Caribbean, IFOS
  • Assistant Professor with the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Manitoba
  • Member of the RAC 2 and Professional Learning and Development Committees for the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada
  • Past Chair of the Physician Health and Wellness Committee and past Chair of the Section of Otolaryngology for Doctors Manitoba
  • Co-Chair 2015 Canadian Conference on Physician Health
  • Past Chair of the Continuing Professional Development and Global Health Committees for the Canadian Society of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery
  • Recipient of the 2017 Health or Safety Promotion Award from Doctors Manitoba

As a dedicated advocate for global surgery and the promotion of safe, accessible surgical care, I volunteer annually on surgical missions to low and lower-middle income countries. This volunteer work inspires me to work harder for my patients and the health care system. I am also passionate about physician health and wellness and have worked to support the health and well-being of doctors.
