Ryan Gegg, DO, FAAOA

Dr. Gegg was born and raised in Michigan. After completing his training, he and his wife decided to head South for warmer weather year-round, start a family, and begin a career. He found an amazing partner and practice with Dr. Nunnally and joined ENT South in the summer of 2017. After 4 great years with ENT South, he decided to move to the Emerald Coast to open Emerald ENT.

Otorhinolaryngologist (ENT):  Dr. Gegg treats a variety of ear, nose and throat conditions, both medically and surgically using the most updated, current medical innovations and treatment options.

“As an ENT and DO, my goal is to treat the whole person and how a given condition affects different aspects of one’s body. Nothing makes me happier and excited, than a patient who returns after a surgical procedure / medical treatment and can’t believe how much better their sinuses feel, breathing is improved, hearing /ear condition is improved or allergies better controlled. I thrive on helping patients feel better.”

Otolaryngic Allergy:  Dr. Gegg completed a fellowship in Otolaryngic Allergy through the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy in 2019. The allergy Clinic offers the most up to date allergy treatments and testing options. We treat allergy patients according to AAOA guidelines with proven medical options in a stepwise fashion. Our testing is comfortable and efficient. Allergy immunotherapy is offered based on allergy history, testing results and previous failed medical treatments. Allergy immunotherapy is offered via “shots” or oral “drops”, based on patient preferences and testing results.

Facial Plastics:  Dr. Gegg has had extensive training in facial plastics and cosmetic surgery. He will soon be opening a cosmetic clinic that offers minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. These cosmetic treatments include: Botox and facial fillers, minimally invasive face and brow lifts, eyelid procedures, skin resurfacing and nasal procedures. He is also very proficient in facial skin cancer removal and reconstruction.
