McChesney joins ear-nose-throat group

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Jason McChesney, M.D., has joined the faculty of the West Virginia University School of Medicine. He is a laryngologist who specializes in treating patients with voice and swallowing problems.

Doctors who have diagnosed vocal cord paralysis, hoarseness or nodules of the vocal cord can refer patients to Dr. McChesney in WVU’s Ear, Nose and Throat clinic for treatment.

McChesney received his degree from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland in 1997 and completed a residency in otolaryngology at the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, Pa., in 2002. He was in private practice in Pennsylvania and Ohio until he decided to pursue a laryngology fellowship at the Medical College of Georgia, which he completed in 2009.

McChesney is a member of the WVU Department of Otolaryngology and the American Academy of Otolaryngology.
