About Me

I am grateful to work in a space where I am challenged both intellectually, socially, and emotionally by the complexity and diversity of the field, the nuances of treating a whole family, and by bearing witness to childhood illnesses.

- Christopher A. Hargunani, MD

Dr. Hargunani is fellowship trained in pediatric otolaryngology. This field encompasses many areas including childhood hearing loss, chronic ear disease, sinus conditions, skull base tumors, swallowing disorders, speech disorders, airway obstruction, thyroid tumors, craniofacial anomalies, tonsil disease, and much more. His special interests are in managing hearing loss, chronic ear disease, and cleft lip and palate.

Dr. Hargunani chose his specialty as he was inspired by the care and dedication his mentors in medical school had for the children they treated. He believes pediatric otolaryngologists can have a tremendous impact on the most fragile lives. He feels deeply rewarded by the improvements, both big and small, that he can make in his patients’ lives.

Dr. Hargunani enjoys the interactions with patients, families, and co-workers that embody the efforts of a team working toward the common goal of helping a child thrive.
