About Dr. Gunnlaugsson

Dr. Chad Gunnlaugsson founded the Southeastern ENT, Allergy, & Sleep Disorders Institute in 2010 with a single goal in mind – to provide the most comprehensive and professional environment to treat medical disorders in the field of otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat).  This commitment pertains not only to surgical diseases and procedures relating to the head and neck, but also to the treatment of nonsurgical disorders which are pertinent to this area of the body.  This includes the full spectrum of allergy care and sleep disorder therapies.  Dr. Gunnlaugsson is Board Certified in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and Sleep Medicine.  He is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy (AAOA) which signifies advanced training in allergy care by passing an oral and written board exam.

Dr. Gunnlaugsson graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.).  He obtained his medical degree with distinction from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and subsequently completed his general surgical internship and otolaryngology residency training at the University of Michigan Hospitals.  Following completion of his head and neck surgical training,  Dr. Gunnlaugsson completed an accredited fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Michigan.  He was the recipient of the Jack Anderson Memorial Award for obtaining the highest score on the oral and written board examination conducted by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Dr. Gunnlaugsson is dedicated to providing superior patient care and is committed to obtaining the safest and most current recommendations for his patients.  He treats both pediatric and adult age groups and forms specialized treatment plans based on the symptoms of each individual.  Dr. Gunnlaugsson’s biography and areas of practice are listed below.
