About the Practice

We utilize the most up to date and advanced services to identify and treat your ongoing ear, nose, throat, allergy, and sleep needs.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help restore you to your ideal health and quality of life, so that you can in turn serve and help those around you. Our ENT Cool Springs practice desires to improve your health for the near future, but also to help identify and educate you on ways to prevent further problems down the road. Another integral part of our mission is to build into and positively affect the surrounding community.  To accomplish this, a portion of our time and your collected fees are donated back into the community to minister to those in need.
