Dr. Anthony’s practice philosophy embraces patient-centered care with a multidisciplinary team of expert-trained specialists to deliver the right diagnosis and appropriate treatment in a timely fashion. His team-based approach ensures he and his team are at the forefront of medical care and can offer patients the best of medical, surgical and therapy-based care.

Before medical school, he was a professional opera singer. Through a physician visit with his wife, who is also a singer, Dr. Anthony discovered laryngology and went from pursuing a performing career to caring for those pursuing a performing career.

Dr. Anthony received his medical degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. He completed his residency at the Baylor College of Medicine and MD Anderson Cancer Center Combined Program, where he also completed his internship. His fellowship training was at Emory University Voice Center.

Dr. Anthony is chief of the laryngology division at the Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. He is also one of the highest-volume thyroplasty surgeons in the country and one of the only physicians in Indiana who performs awake surgery on the larynx.
