Notes from Doctor
I am excited for the opportunity to provide ENT care to the people of El Paso. As a general ENT, I am equipped to help manage most ENT issues including hearing loss, chronic Eustachian tube dysfunction, chronic ear issues, thyroid and parathyroid issues, sinus and allergy issues, obstructive sleep apnea, pediatric ENT, and cancer of the skin and head neck. I have a special interest in sinus and allergy disease as well.

Notes from the doctor
I began my career as a nurse in 2002. I worked in various settings such as ICU, medical/surgical, dermatology, allergy, and nephology. I attended Angelo State University, where I received my Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) & Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP)– graduating with honors. I received clinical training in ENT and the primary care settings to provide care to families and individuals across the lifespan. I am also a UTEP graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
I am excited to be working with Dr. Westbrook and the rest of the team as I share the same goals and values in providing “top-notch care, continuing education, and improving patient’s quality of life.
