All of our physicians are fellowship-trained in pediatric otolaryngology, which requires completion of an otolaryngology residency plus a minimum of one additional year of specialty training. This advanced training is focused completely on the unique diagnostic and treatment issues in children from birth to 18 years of age.

Physician Assistants

Lago Denise M _2014Denise Lago, PA-C

Denise completed her undergraduate studies at UC San Diego in biochemistry and cell biology and earned her master’s in physician assistant studies at Western University of Health Sciences.

Denise knew she wanted to work with children, and during her rotation in pediatric otolaryngology at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego, she decided that ENT was the place to be. There was also a personal reason. As a child, she had ear tubes placed, a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy at age 7, and an earring backing removed.

Denise loves doing office procedures such as foreign body removals, frenotomies, and incision and drainage of abscesses.

She and her husband love to hike, cook, travel and listen to local music performances.
