Jessica Specht

Let’s Elevate Your Health Together

I entered medicine first and foremost to help care for others. The complexity and resilience of the human body are awe-inspiring, and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to navigate its problems alongside patients. As an Ear, Nose, and Throat Surgeon, I am an expert on a complex and critical area of the body that can affect important senses and daily quality of life. I am dedicated to continuing education so that I may always stay up to date on the latest evidence-based recommendations. Patients know their bodies better than anyone, and I am here to listen to you.
