Lesley Soine, MD
I chose to be a physician to help people and be an educator. I believe patients need to understand what ails them in order to be active in their treatment plan. ENT/FPS drew me in because of the complex anatomy, areas treated and variety of patients (ages and conditions). I also enjoy the procedural/surgical aspects of the specialty. And, after practicing medicine for six years I made the decision to open my own practice, and am excited about my future in medicine.
I have a second job where I chauffeur my two daughters to numerous activities. I am a lake rat; enjoy snow skiing and love animals, especially our Great Dane and French bulldog, which we affectionately call the pony and the pig.
I received my undergraduate degree in zoology from North Dakota State University, medical degree from the University of North Dakota and completed my residency in Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Colorado.
