Dr. Sorrel sums up his treatment philosophy as follows: “I believe the most important and challenging part of being a physician is being an effective communicator. A good physician must develop an ability to compassionately and completely explain medical diagnosis and treatment options to patients and family members so that they can make informed healthcare decisions for themselves and those they love. I believe in treating all patients as if they were my own family.” Dr. Nicholas Sorrel is available and enthusiastic about treating the entire realm of Otolaryngology, including allergy, and sinus disease, thyroid and parathyroid disease, head and neck cancer, salivary gland disease, disorders of the larynx and voice, facial trauma, pediatric ENT, facial cosmetics, chronic ear disease and hearing loss.
