Meet Dr. Michael Bublik

Dr. Michael Bublik ENT Glendale and Beverly HillsMichael Bublik M.D. is only one of very few physicians in the world who is Triple Board Certified.  Dr. Bublik is a fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon and a member of the highly elite American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, a selective group consisting of 2,700 qualifying surgeons throughout the world and is board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS).  Its members are board certified, focusing on surgery of the face, head and neck. He is also board-certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, one of the oldest medical specialties in the United States.  Otolaryngologists are physicians uniquely trained in the surgical and medical treatment of patients with disorders and diseases of the head and neck.  His third board certification is in Allergy and Immunology from the prestigious American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy.

Dr. Michael Bublik ENT Glendale and Beverly HillsDr. Bublik graduated from UCLA where he majored in Physiology. He was one of a select few who graduated with Highest Honors and a Chancellors Award. While at UCLA, his dedication to the community was immense. He volunteered in homeless shelters and clinics and helped engineer the first mobile health clinic through the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and UCLA School of Public Health.

Dr. Bublik’s interest in this field began when he was an undergraduate at UCLA and continued throughout medical school at the Keck School of Medicine at USC in Los Angeles. While an undergraduate he spent hundreds of hours working with lasers and their application to treat diseases in the head and neck area. In fact, his research was so well recognized that during medical school he was the recipient of an NIH grant. His fascination with the head and neck area and facial aesthetics, with its intricate surgery and positive impact on patients solidified his decision to pursue triple board certification.

Throughout his medical career, Dr. Bublik has trained and worked with leaders in facial plastic surgery, ENT, Sinus and Allergy. He completed a residency in Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Miami School of Medicine and Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida. At this authority of facial plastic surgery, ENT, Sinus and Allergy, he trained under world-renowned cosmetic dermatologist, opthalmologists, facial plastic surgeons, sinus surgeons , allergists, and plastic surgeons. While in Miami, he received many awards for clinical teaching, and he published numerous articles and textbook chapters.

Following residency, he was among an elite group selected for a fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Because of his continued success at the University of Miami, he was offered to stay on faculty as a clinical instructor to teach residents and medical students. At the University of Miami, he continued to train with pioneers in rhinoplasty and facial reconstruction and also received additional training in lasers, injectables, and skin care by prominent cosmetic dermatologists. As a fellow, he continued to be a prolific writer, writing additional book chapters and continuing important research.

Dr. Bublik’s track record in academic success demonstrates his unrelenting commitment to his work. He has published ground breaking research articles in peer-reviewed journals and has received many awards and honors throughout his medical and surgical training. Perhaps more importantly, he is committed to delivering compassionate care to every patient doing whatever it takes to ensure patient satisfaction, while adhering to highest level of integrity and ethics.
