What is an otolaryngologist?

More commonly referred to as an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) an otolaryngologist provides comprehensive medical and surgical care for patients with diseases and disorders that affect not only the ears, nose and throat, but also the respiratory and upper digestive systems and related structures of the head and neck. Dr. Obokhare’s areas of expertise include facial and reconstructive surgery and the treatment of disorders of hearing and voice.

The skilled surgeons at Permian Premier work closely with Permian Premier’s Primary Care providers to give you a focused and cohesive plan for your overall health.  Permian Premier’s offices are located right next to the Medical Center of Southeast Texas on Jimmy Johnson Blvd., in Port Arthur.
