“I chose this field because it gives me the opportunity to treat patients from infants to the elderly. I like the mix of medicine and surgery. I also enjoy being in a specialty where I can solve many different problems and help people with head and neck disorders. I am extremely patient and a good listener. It’s important to me to educate my patients about their medical issues.” – Dr. A. Christopher Manilla
