Welcome Dr. Danielson

We would like to give a warm welcome to our new physician, Dr. Greg Danielson! Dr. Danielson grew up in Vermont with his parents and younger sister.  From there, he went to Saint Lawrence University in Canton, NY where he met his future wife.  After college he went to Medical school at the University of Vermont.  He got married during medical school and then went into residency at the University of Vermont doing 2 years of general surgery prior to changing to ENT.  During his residency, he and his wife had their two sons.  His second to last year of residency was spent at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire.

"During my time as a resident I worked with and got to know Dr. Kasznica and Dr. Tamura, who were also training in ENT at UVM," said Dr. Danielson.  "After completing my residency in ENT I took a job with a large multi-specialty group and practiced in Exeter and Portsmouth, NH.  I practiced in NH for seven and a half years.  During that time I kept in contact with Dr. Kasznica who encouraged me to come out to South Dakota and see why this was such a great place to practice ENT and raise a family.  Eventually I came to visit and was impressed with the practice and people that I met.  After bringing the rest of my family out to see the area, we felt the opportunity was too good to pass up.  In April, my father and I hopped into a very packed car and drove to Sioux Falls so that I could settle in and join the practice.  My wife and sons remain in NH so that the boys can finish out the school year.  In June they will be coming out to join me here!" 

Dr. Danielson is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys fishing (especially fly fishing), hunting, hiking, camping, & water skiing.  In the winter he enjoys snow skiing. When asked how he decided to become an ear, nose & throat doctor, he responded, "My father was an Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon who inspired my interest in medicine and surgery.  As a medical student he encouraged me to look into Otolaryngology since he had worked with many of them and thought highly of the field.  I found that I greatly enjoyed my time on the Otolaryngology service, with a great combination of challenging surgeries and medically managed problems.  During my time spent with the Otolaryngology service as a medical student, I met and worked with Dr. Robert Sofferman who at the time was the chairman of the division.  Dr. Sofferman became a mentor for me in the process of pursuing a residency in Otolaryngology.  I was accepted into the otolaryngology residency at the University of Vermont where I was able to continue to work with Dr. Sofferman until he was forced to step down as the chairperson due to health problems."

Dr. Danielson expressed that he has always enjoyed getting to know his patients. He also finds great satisfaction in improving the quality of life for the patients he treats. So far, he has greatly enjoyed his time in Sioux Falls.  "I have found it a very easy city to navigate as I am exploring what it has to offer.  The people I have met have been so helpful and friendly, which makes you feel welcomed and a part of the community within days of being here," Dr. Danielson said. "I am looking forward to discovering much more of what Sioux Falls and South Dakota have to offer!"

We are thrilled to have Dr. Danielson join our amazing team here at Midwest Ear, Nose & Throat. He is now accepting new patients.
