I’m trained as a Pediatric Ear, Nose & Throat surgeon. After spending a decade heading toward becoming a “Head & Neck” cancer surgeon, I spent some time treating only children with Dr. Frank Rimell, Pediatric ENT Extraordinaire.
My clinics at that time – days filled with babies, toddlers, and children – were pure magic. Like alchemy, they took me from bitter and angry back to the joy of being a doctor. It was my time with Frank (and those kids!) that convinced me to spend my life in the pediatric specialty of ENT. Thanks, Frank.
My clinics have been a sustaining joy in my life. My patients call me their “booger doctor,” and then laugh hysterically.
So, when I developed a medical education website for families of children with respiratory ailments, it became boogordoctor.com, naturally. It could have been booger, or boogar, but “boogordoctor” was just easier to explain – “spell it with all-O’s” I tell people.
If you have a child who struggles with ear infections, or sinusitis, allergies, asthma, or other respiratory ailments, be sure to check it out: boogordoctor.com
