Quinn A. Dunlap, M.D. – Otolaryngologist

I find the entirety of the field of Otolaryngology to be fascinating and enjoy virtually all aspects of the field.

Dr. Dunlap ultimately made the decision to pursue medical school following a medical mission trip to Guatemala during his sophomore year of college. The satisfaction and fulfillment he experienced through helping those in need during this trip led him to pursue medicine as a life-long passion.

“Throughout my time in medical school I increasingly came to appreciate that otolaryngologists can function to produce high-impact, often-immediate results as a surgeon as well as form meaningful relationships and manage patients much like a primary care physician. Very few other areas of medicine, if any, possess both of these capabilities in such an intricately woven fashion. Furthermore, Otolaryngology is a field that encompasses the essence of communication. As such, ailments jeopardize the very identity of those they affect through the loss of vital and unique human characteristics. The otolaryngologist thus serves as the means of re-establishment of the patient as an individual, markedly impacting and improving quality of life. For all of the reasons listed above, I have found being an Otolaryngologist to be exceptionally fascinating and fulfilling.”

Dr. Dunlap says he finds the entirety of the field of Otolaryngology to be fascinating and enjoys virtually all aspects of the field. However, his interest in head and neck cancer led to pursuing and completing an additional year of fellowship training in head and neck oncologic surgery, transoral robotic surgery, head and neck reconstruction, and surgery of the thyroid and parathyroid glands.

Dr. Dunlap enjoys spending time with his wife, Jill, and his son, Anders. He also enjoys a plethora of outdoor activities including hiking, road biking, running, canoeing, fishing, camping, and anything involving a lake. He is also a big SEC fan and enjoys virtually all sports, with his favorites being football and baseball. Without question, Dr. Dunlap and his family are very excited to be in the Knoxville area as it possesses a wealth of opportunities regarding both the sports and outdoors.
