Expertise, integrity, and professionalism. These are the attributes that form the foundation of the Otolaryngology Division of CHOC Children’s Specialists. The CHOC Pediatric Otolaryngology Division is the only group in Orange County that is exclusively dedicated to pediatric ear, nose and throat disorders. The division’s highly acclaimed surgeons are all board-certified and have received their pediatric fellowship training at various top institutions in the country.  The division’s surgeons are completely dedicated to providing compassionate and comprehensive care for ENT problems in children of all ages–from newborns to teens-while fostering a trusting and professional relationship with our patients and their families.  The three senior members, Dr. Ahuja, Dr. Pham and Dr. Huoh have been recognized by the Orange County Medical Association as “Physicians of Excellence”.
