About Flavio Oliveira, MD, PhD

Flavio Oliveira, MD, PhD, is an Otolaryngologist (Ear, Nose and Throat specialist) and Head & Neck Surgeon at Washington Township Medical Foundation. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and Medical Doctorate (MD) from the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Oliveira then completed internship and residency at Stanford where he was a chief resident.

Dr. Oliveira believes it is a privilege to enter someone's life during a vulnerable moment, with the potential to alter their path, reduce suffering, and enhance health and happiness. This deep responsibility drives his philosophy of care and commitment to approach every patient interaction with the same level of compassion, empathy, and attentiveness that he would extend to his closest family members.

As a former high-level professional athlete, Dr. Oliveira was naturally attracted to the surgical procedures of the head and neck. He believes that the commitment and dedication necessary to develop the dexterity, precision, and focus required to excel in sports parallel the skills essential for surgical excellence. While he values the intricacies of surgery, he equally advocates for non-surgical medical interventions, ensuring holistic patient care.

In his free time, Dr. Oliveira enjoys spending time with his wife and kids. He also enjoys playing sports and traveling to explore nature – with a keen interest in mountain areas.
