Board-certified ENT surgeon Charles “Lane” Anzalone Jr., M.D., was born and raised in Crowley, Louisiana. Upon graduating first in his class from Louisiana State University with a bachelor’s degree in bioengineering, he received his medical doctorate from the University of Texas at Houston in 2015. During his tenure at the University of Texas, he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Society, a prestigious distinction amongst the top percentile of medical students. After graduation, Dr. Anzalone was only one of four residents worldwide to be accepted into the ENT residency at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, which during his training, was recognized as the top ENT department in the United States.

During his time at the Mayo Clinic, Dr. Anzalone developed expertise in comprehensive ENT care, including pediatric ENT, allergy and sinus surgery, and thyroid / parathyroid surgical treatment. While at Mayo Clinic, he authored several peer-reviewed articles in ENT that gained him recognition within the international medical community. He was voted top resident teacher by his peers, and was awarded a large medical grant by the United States Department of Defense for his work with veterans. He was also presented with the Mayo Clinic Karis Award, a high honor among a small number of medical professionals for exemplifying the Franciscan values of integrity, compassion, and stewardship in his care for every patient.

During his general ENT training, Dr. Anzalone also recognized a void in the subspeciality of ear and hearing care in the Acadiana region and opted to pursue further fellowship training in Otology/Neurotology with world-renowned ear specialist John L. Dornhoffer, M.D., at the University of Arkansas. Along with general ENT, his area of expertise is in Otology as a comprehensive ear specialist, specializing in treating pediatric and adult patients with chronic ear infections, hearing loss, and cochlear implantation. With a unique skill set ranging from ear tubes to more advanced surgical techniques, Dr. Anzalone is one of only a few fellowship-trained ear surgeons in Louisiana and the only one in the Acadiana region. He is currently welcoming patients at both our Lafayette and Crowley locations.

After several years of traveling across the country, from studying medicine in Houston to his fellowship training at the University of Arkansas, Dr. Anzalone has finally come home to Acadiana! He and his wife, Mary Gayle have returned to the Lafayette area with their four children. When he isn’t busy helping patients, he enjoys watching LSU football, outdoor activities, and spending time with his family.
