Bio

 Allen Seiden, MD, is a professor of Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Cincinnati, where he is also currently the director of the Division of Rhinology and the director of the Taste and Smell Clinic.  His clinical interests focus primarily on diseases of the nose and sinuses, and he has been one of the leaders in expanding the use of minimally invasive endoscopic techniques to treat sinus pathology. 

He is a fellow and past member of the Board of the American Rhinologic Society, for whom he has chaired a number of committees.  He is board certified and is also a fellow in the American Academy of Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery, as well as the American Laryngological, Rhinological, and Otological Society.

One of only a few physicians nationally with expertise in taste and smell disorders, Dr. Seiden has edited a book and published extensively on this subject. He continues to be involved in chemosensory research.  He remains an active teacher both locally and nationally, having received the Distinguished Honor Award from the American Academy of Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery.   He has repeatedly made the list of Best Doctors in America and Cincinnati Magazine’s Top Doctors. 

Dr. Seiden completed his undergraduate work at the University of Pennsylvania, his medical school at the New Jersey College of Medicine, and his training in Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Illinois in Chicago.  Although he was raised in New Jersey, he fell in love with the Midwest and has never left.  He has three children, all of whom were born and raised in Cincinnati.
