Dr. Nate Tritle has been named Flagstaff Medical Center’s 2019 Nathan Avery Physician of the Year. Tritle is an ENT-otolaryngologist (ear nose and throat doctor).
Dr. Nate Tritle’s mantra is simple: “If I’m not having fun, I’m not doing it.”
In his more than 20 years of working with ears, noses and throats, Tritle has not stopped enjoying even the unappealing parts of his work and the environment where he gets to do it.
With a grin, Tritle said that he and Flagstaff’s four other ear, nose and throat doctors (or otolaryngologists) often help patients by digging out ear wax and picking noses – and they have fun doing it.
