About Me

Dr. Sam Mathur, a native of Western Pennsylvania, grew up in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. After receiving his education from Cornell, Harvard, and his Otolaryngology training at Duke University Medical Center, he returned to Western Pennsylvania in 1998 to take care of patients in this community. Through the years, he has performed thousands of ENT surgeries on adults and children alike, and the practice has now grown to a four location full allergy and Otolaryngology practice.

Dr. Mathur has a strong commitment to full patient care approach, through patient communications, patient information and having his patients have a good understanding of problems they have.

His interests in Otolaryngology are wide, with special interest in allergy and sinus problems. The home allergy program has been extremely successful part of Laurel ENT and Allergy, and in 2015, over 700 patients are actively enrolled. Dr. Mathur's vision of a patient based approach where patients are strongly involved in their own care has proven to be very successful and beneficial to people of this community.

Dr. Mathur also has a strong interest in Pediatric Otolaryngology, treating children of all ages. He routinely performs neck and throat surgery and has a close affiliation with other esteemed institutions in the area for patients that require more advanced surgical or medical treatment.

The expansion of Laurel ENT and Allergy into the North Hills of Pittsburgh is an exciting time for the practice, and the additional services brought to the patients of this area will continue to enhance ENT and Allergy care in this growing community.
