Robert C. McLean, M.D Ph.D
Assistant Professor, Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery
Although I was born in Pampa, Texas, I was raised in Roswell, New Mexico. When it was time for me to attend college, I came back to Texas to attend West Texas A&M University (WTAMU) in Canyon.
At WTAMU I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biology and chemistry, which prepared me for earning my medical degree. I completed my medical studies at the School of Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, where I also completed my residency in otolaryngology and head and neck surgery.
I joined Panhandle Ear, Nose and Throat in 2001. While I enjoy my practice in all areas of otolaryngology, I have a special interest in working with patients who have voice disorders.
I met my husband, Thane Morgan at WTAMU. He also attended medical school in San Antonio where he completed his orthopedic residence. We chose to moved back to Amarillo in 2001. We find that Amarillo is a great place to raise our family and we both enjoy practicing medicine in Amarillo.
I was raised in Amarillo, Texas and graduated from River Road High School. I attended Texas Tech University where I received my degree in biology from the Honor’s college. I earned my doctorate in medicine from Texas Tech School of Medicine. When I returned to Amarillo to complete my medical degree, I met my husband, Austin Price. We moved to Oklahoma City where I completed my specialty training in otolaryngology head and neck surgery. My husband and I chose to move home to Amarillo. I enjoy caring for the people of my hometown. I am board certified by the American Academy of Otolaryngology and enjoy all facets of ear, nose and throat care including; head and neck cancer, thyroid and parathyroid disease, sinus disease, allergy disorders and pediatrics.
I graduated from Tascosa High School in Amarillo and attended the University of Texas in Austin for my college training. I subsequently received a doctor of medicine from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston Texas in 1981. Following my residency in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston Texas, I returned to Amarillo to begin practice with my father, Dr. Norman Wright in 1986. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and is a board certified with the American Board of Otolaryngology. I enjoy the practice of all facets of the specialty of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. I have a special interest in the area of pediatric ear, nose, and throat disorders and diseases of the nose and paranasal sinuses.
