Christopher A. Perro, MD, FACS, is a board-certified otolaryngologist at UT Health East Texas Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Center. Dr. Perro takes a comprehensive, patient-centered approach to care —treating the whole patient not just the disease. “As a physician and surgeon, I value most the trust relationship that exists between my patients and me,” said Dr. Perro.
“I chose this specialty because I found that some of the most profoundly distressing conditions that affect us involve the ears, nose and throat. When disease compromises our ability to breathe, smell, taste, speak and hear, it deprives us of some of our most precious human interactions. Treating these conditions is especially gratifying for the improvement in our quality of life that results.”
Dr. Perro is also board-certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. He treats children and adults.
