Doctors Backous, Anstead and Clinkscales are now seeing patients in the Seattle area at 515 Minor Ave, Suite 140, Seattle, WA 98104.


Our physicians at Puget Sound Ear, Nose and Throat are all board-certified with the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. Each physician brings more than a decade of experience in the medical and surgical treatment of the ear, nose and throat, and have completed a minimum of five years of surgical residency training along with passing rigorous written and oral examinations. Expertise in this diverse field encompasses multiple organ systems and treats diseases both medically and surgically, requiring a high level of competency, knowledge and skill, which we strive to bring to our patient-centered care every day.

We are dedicated to state-of-the-art evaluation and treatment for all ear, nose and throat conditions. We take the time to understand each patient’s individual needs, work with them to efficiently define a diagnosis, discuss treatment options, and provide expert medical and surgical treatment that positively changes the lives of our patients. We understand and enjoy the special care required in the treatment of our younger patients and are privileged to be entrusted to care for them.


Our certified audiologists use testing methodology that goes beyond the basic techniques to determine if a patient can hear within normal range, and if not, what type of hearing aid is best for them. Through extensive training and experience, Puget Sound ENT has created a hearing treatment protocol that is customizable for each patient. Our experts can accurately understand a patient’s specific hearing sensitivity and prescribe the proper rehabilitation treatment.

The best patient care is put into practice every day at Puget Sound ENT — we consider it a privilege to serve you.
