Although I have had an ENT related Web site since 1994, the original KidsENT.com Web site was launched in 1998, and since that time I have answered thousands of questions from families around the world.

I worked as a programmer in a bioengineering lab in the early 1980s, writing software to help analyze gait using high speed digital cameras. During medical school, my research involved an artificial intelligence system to help physicians optimize medical management. Later, as multimedia applications became feasible for personal computers in the early 1990s, I developed CD-ROM based training material for ENT residents. As the Web developed in late 1990s, I pushed for the widespread adoption of online doctor-patient communication, and wrote a number of articles on this topic.

I have always felt that computers had great potential in medicine, and my interest in this field goes back many years. As technology has developed over the past few decades, I have seen more and better medical computing applications, such as online resource where patients and their families can research conditions and communicate with their physicians and others with similar conditions. Furthermore, there has been an incredible expansion of mobile technology recently, as well as the the widespread availability of inexpensive consumer digital imaging equipment. This has resulted in numerous advances in health care, especially telehealth consultation.

My first ENT Web site went online in the very early days of the Web, in 1994. The images below will show you what the site looked like over the years, as I continued to revise and update the content, navigation, code and overall design.

It is important to realize that online consultation is not substitute for a formal doctor-patient relationship, and that I cannot actually diagnose or treat a child over the Internet. Nevertheless, this correspondence seems to have been quite helpful to many families. Sometimes, something as simple as an explanation of a basic disease process or a referral to a local specialist is useful.

Feel free to contact me through this Web site, I continue to try to answer questions submitted as quickly as time allows, in the longstanding tradition of KidsENT.com!
