We are delighted to announce a number of important changes to our practice:
First, with the vision of enhancing and expanding access to our services, Anne Arundel Ear Nose & Throat (AAENT) and Severn River Ear Nose & Throat (SRENT) will be officially merging on July 1, 2021. Dr. Rob Meek, the medical director at AAENT, and Dr. Kleiman, the medical director of SRENT, have found from years of collaborating together, that they share the same philosophy of care and high standards of skill and excellence in each of their surgical practices. Their common focus is on quality and compassionate care. In fact, the two doctors have long been respected colleagues and friends of one another and have been partners at the Arundel Ambulatory Surgical Center for over 16 years.
Second, as a combined practice, we are excited to welcome the addition of a new physician to our team. Dr. Brandon Wachal earned his Medical Degree and completed his Residency Training in Otolaryngology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, and completed a fellowship in Facial Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery at the Virginia Commonwealth University Hospital. He will be joining us in late August!
Although we will be working hard to integrate our systems into a new combined system over the next few weeks, we will try to keep any disruption to a minimum for our patients. Ultimately, we see this as an opportunity to improve our facilities and processes and to offer more flexibility, more resources, and best care to our patients.
The same healthcare professionals and staff at both offices will continue as part of the combined team, and we have made it a top priority to ensure as seamless a transition as is possible for all of our patients. We look forward to continuing to provide patients with the same excellent care. Thank you in advance for your patience, and please call us if you have any questions along the way!
