Michael Guttenplan, MD

Chief, Otorhinolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery

I was born and raised in Suburban, New York and educated in Philadelphia where I met my wife. We then relocated to my wife’s home town of Amarillo, Texas where we raised two beautiful children as well as a number of horses. Finally we’ve enjoyed living in the Valley of the Sun where we enjoy hiking, golfing and the beautiful weather.  I continue to get great joy out of my medical practice as I enter my third decade of being a physician.
