Our physicians are board-certified in otolaryngology (the study of the ear, nose, and throat) and have also completed additional training, called a fellowship, in pediatric otolaryngology.
This pediatric training consists of 1-2 years of post-graduate work and has been accomplished at some of the leading medical schools and children’s hospitals in the country. A pediatric fellowship in otolaryngology centers solely on a specific area of clinical practice. With this training, we have the expertise to treat any and all ear, nose, and throat conditions ranging from routine ear infections to life-threatening airway disorders or complex head and neck tumors.
As active members of the medical staff at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, one of the leading children’s hospitals in the country, our physicians and surgeons serve in multiple capacities within Children’s and other pediatric healthcare entities throughout Atlanta and beyond.
We are proud of James Thomsen, M.D. who is currently the Chief of Otolaryngology at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, Paula Harmon, M.D. is currently the Medical Director of Hearing Loss at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and Sivi Baktha, M.D. serves on the Quality Utilization Management Committee for Georgia Pediatric Subspecialists. Other PENTA physicians serve in other capacities at Children’s, as well as in the community at large, through their ongoing professional development and contributions.
