Meet Dr. Makki

 Dr. K.S Makki has been providing his Ear, Nose and Throat (“ENT”) expertise, specializing in medical and surgical care of pediatric and adult ear, nose and throat disorders in the Maryland, Virginia and DC areas since 1985. Among his peers, Dr. Makki is viewed as a compassionate, knowledgeable and experienced surgeon. For more than 25 years, Dr. Makki has prided himself on being available to his patients by holding appointment hours six-days a week –Monday thru Saturday– to ensure his patients don’t have to wait weeks for an appointment.

Dr. Makki completed his Ear, Nose and Throat, Head and Neck Surgery and medical training at Georgetown University in 1985. Immediately thereafter, Dr. Makki became an Attending Surgeon at the Department of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery at the Washington Hospital Center and in just four years, was selected as a Senior Attending Surgeon. In this capacity since 1989, he oversees the Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic at the Hospital while supervising ENT medical residents at the Hospital.

Also in 1985, Dr. Makki began his practice as a solo practitioner with offices in Virginia, Maryland and D.C. Two years later, Dr. Makki decided to focus his practice in Maryland and D.C., establishing his three offices in Greenbelt/College Park, Washington, DC and Southern Maryland.

In 1994, Dr. Makki expanded his practice to include a certified audiologist to provide on-site hearing test services, as well as hearing aid consultations exclusively for his patients. In addition to his medical and surgical practice, for over a decade Dr. Makki has trained Georgetown University’s Ear, Nose and Throat medical residents, teaching his students how to perform ear, nose and throat operations using the latest and most cutting edge medical technology to improve patient outcomes.

In addition to his more than 25 years of clinical practice, Dr. Makki has also served as a fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery since 1985 and as a member of the International College of Surgeons since 1989. He has also held elected positions — as a two-term Vice-Chairman of the Ear, Nose and Throat Department at the Washington Hospital Center and as a committee member of both the Laser Surgery and Medical Records Committees. He regularly lectures on Head and Neck Cancers at Providence Hospital, National Rehabilitation Hospital and holds workshops regarding upper air-way emergencies, tracheotomy tubes and management and care of these patients.
