"He continues to strive to offer patients access to comprehensive care."
Doug Liepert, MD
Dr. Liepert was raised in western and central Canada. After completing high school, he earned a Tricolor Scholarship to study at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, where he completed his Doctor of Medicine. He then returned to western Canada where he completed his residency in Otolaryngology (ENT) in 1994.
Dr. Liepert began his practice in Bismarck, North Dakota, after immigrating to the United States. Dr. Liepert's focus in ENT soon turned to sinonasal disease and sleep apnea. He became one of the first surgeons in the midwest to perform image guided sinus surgery. He continues to pursue this field, engaging in research as well as general practice to provide the highest possible level of care to his patients.
In the late 90's, Dr. Liepert began to pursue surgical treatments for snoring and sleep apnea. In 2000, he determined it was important to study all the facets of sleep to deliver more comprehensive care to patients with sleep apnea. He attended the School of Sleep Medicine at Stanford and was one of the first surgeons to become Board Certified in both ENT and Sleep Medicine. Today, Dr. Liepert practices in South Bend, Indiana, with Allied ENT Specialty Center, where he continues to strive to offer patients access to comprehensive care incorporating both the medical and surgical aspects of ENT and Sleep Medicine.
Dr. Liepert is currently working with the University of Notre Dame as a Guest Research Associate Professor. He is helping to develop new technologies to assist in patient education and surgical preparation. Dr. Liepert's interests outside of medicine include faith and the outdoors. He has been a long time supporter of Young Life. He loves to spend time at his lake home and hunting. He enjoys sharing these activities with his wife and son.
