Abby Meyer

Assistant Professor


As a pediatric otolaryngologist, I enjoy treating children with a variety of ear, nose and throat problems.  I have a particular interest in caring for children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing (DHH) or who have chronic ear disease.  Related to this interest, I am a member of the Minnesota Department of Health Newborn Hearing Screening Advisory Committee and am the American Academy of Pediatrics Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Chapter Champion for Minnesota. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time on the lake and cheering on my kids at their sporting events.
