ENT and Allergy Associates, LLP (ENTA) believes that the residents of Somerset County, NJ and surrounding areas deserve every medical resource available.  And that’s why they are once again expanding their roster of superb physicians, and proudly announcing that Dr. Dennis Burachinsky will join their Somerville office this summer upon completion of his residency at Saint Barnabas Medical Center. Dr. Burachinsky will be seeking privileges at nearby Somerset Medical Center.

Dr. Burachinsky will be part of the Advanced Facial Plastics Division-The reconstructive and cosmetic surgery division of ENTA, which is one of the largest private practice of fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeons in the Northeast. When training for board certification in otolaryngology/ Facial Plastics- physicians concentrate on the complex anatomy, physiology and pathology of the head and neck, enabling them to become uniquely qualified to perform sculptured surgery in this region of the body.

In Somerville, he will join otolaryngologists’ Drs. Kenneth Kunzman, Amy Lazar, Adrianna Hekiert, Tahl Colen (Fellowship trained in Neurotology and Skull Base Surgery), allergist/immunologist Smruti Parikh, MD, and Audiologists Christine Atkins, M.A. and Lorianne K. Owen, M.A., and see both adult and pediatric patients.  This combination of clinicians in one office is unique to this region of New Jersey and provides residents and patients with local access to physicians and audiologists that trained at some of the leading academic institutions in the United States.
