Growing up in Knoxville, Nicholas went to Webb High School.

While no day is the same, as he is constantly managing different projects as a general ENT, his practice specializes in head and neck cancer.

The job can be difficult; however, he loves to work alongside a wonderful group of doctors and providers who all want to work together to help ensure patients have the best possible outcome.

Everyone is so supportive of each other and loves to bring new techniques and surgical options to the East TN area.

Outside of work, he dedicates his time to his wife and two young kids. They enjoy spending time on the lake, fishing, mountain biking, and snowboarding. He is also involved with his local church and the Emerald Youth Foundation
