Essentia Health-Fargo doctor achieves national allergy certification

Essentia Health is proud to announce Dr. Alan Bruns, an otolaryngologist, is now certified by the American Academy of Otolaryngologic Allergy (AAOA), the governing body for ear, nose and throat physicians. This makes him one of a select few physicians in North Dakota to receive this accreditation.

“I am incredibly serious and committed to serving the people of our region,” says Dr. Bruns, who sees patients at Essentia’s South University Clinic in Fargo. “I’m glad I can take my new training and apply it to our work in making a healthy difference in people’s lives.”

The treatment plans of Dr. Bruns’ patients were reviewed by the national group as part of the accreditation. Dr. Bruns then passed written and oral exams to become a fellow of the AAOA and the Academy of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery.
