LOCAL ENT AND ALLERGY EXPERT NAMED A FELLOW OF THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF OTOLARYNGIC ALLERGY (AAOA)

Wyoming Otolaryngology’s Dr. Cope Norcross Continually Seeks New Ways to Better Serve Central Wyoming Allergy Patients

CASPER, Wy.—Wyoming Otolaryngology’s Dr. Cope Norcross was recently selected as a Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy (AAOA), following the successful completion of specific rigorous educational and clinical requirements set by the AAOA.

“It is an honor to be named a Fellow of the AAOA,” said Norcross. “The fellow designation work will pay off in being able to help patients through their more complex allergy problems and treating and preventing allergy-related diseases. Casper is a great community with outstanding healthcare. I want to do my part to continually elevate the standard of care in Central Wyoming, and this fellowship designation is part of that effort.”

Norcross is a fifth generation Wyomingite. He received his medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. He completed his postgraduate training in otolaryngology head and neck surgery at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. Norcross joined Wyoming Otolaryngology in 2006.

Norcross is board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology. He is also a fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. Outside of his ENT and allergy work, Norcross enjoys spending time with his family, being outdoors and volunteering with the Boy Scouts of America.

In order to be chosen as a Fellow of the AAOA, Norcross had to successfully complete a variety of educational and clinical requirements, including advanced coursework over several years, programming and testing as well as attending meetings and documenting an advanced allergy clinical experience.

Since the 1980s, Wyoming Otolaryngology has been one of the largest allergy practices in the state. It was the first to employ sublingual immunotherapy in 2007, a treatment patients can take at home under the tongue versus frequent injections administered at the office. Wyoming Otolaryngology continues a heritage of advanced medical and surgical care, serving patients across the Central Wyoming region.

“At Wyoming Otolaryngology, we strive to maintain the highest possible standards in patient care—part of that is our continuing effort to educate and train ourselves,” said Norcross. “The more we know and understand as science and medicine advances, the better our patients will do. Our patients hold us to high expectations—they do not want to drive for hours to receive help for their allergy problems.”
