Dr. Larry Simon, pediatric otolaryngologist and fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, recently joined the growing list of pediatric specialists at the Kids Specialty Center.
Otolaryngologists are more commonly referred to as “ENTs,” or ear-nose-throat specialists. They treat children with persistent ear, nose and throat conditions.
That’s good news for Acadiana families, who have a higher tendency to suffer from seasonal allergies and sinus infections because of annual high pollen counts and other environmental factors in the region.
“I’m excited to be part of the Lafayette medical community. I look forward to helping area children live a happier, healthier life,” said Dr. Simon, whose list of services include removal of tonsils and adenoids, ear tubes, sinus surgery, allergy testing and therapy and head and neck surgery.
Dr. Simon recently joined the practice of Dr. Chip Hebert at the Kids Specialty Center, 4704 Ambassador Caffery Parkway, Lafayette, where he will see patients twice a month. He is accepting new patients and also has offices in Eunice. Call 337-550-8530 today to schedule an appointment.
After graduating summa cum laude in biochemistry from LSU Baton Rouge in May 1999, Dr. Simon earned a medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He completed an internship in general surgery at Baylor College in 2004 and later a residency in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery in 2008, also at Baylor College. Dr. Simon completed an additional fellowship in pediatric otolaryngology at the University of California at San Diego and Rady Children’s Hospital, also in San Diego, in 2009.
Most recently, Dr. Simon was on the medical staff at University Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of New Orleans, where he served as co-director of the pediatric otolaryngology service.
Dr. Simon is a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans and is a member of the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. He was included in a list of the Best Doctors in America for 2012, 2013 and 2014 and Louisiana’s Best Doctors for 2012 and 2013.
