Jessyka Lighthall, MD

My goal is to provide the highest level of care to all patients.  Whether a patient needs surgery to improve breathing through their nose, wants natural-appearing facial rejuvenation to combat aging changes, or needs a complex reconstruction after treatment of head and neck cancer, I want them to be able to put their best face forward.”
