Meet the Doctors
Christopher Sarno, M.D.
Dr. Sarno is a skilled otolaryngologist practicing at Family ENT.
As an Iowa native, Dr. Sarno traveled west to California for college, where he attended Stanford University and majored in biology. He met his wife, Samara, in Florence, Italy, where they were both Stanford students studying abroad. After college, Dr. Sarno returned to Iowa, where he first earned his master’s degree in biology and continued on to medical school at the University of Iowa. His post-doctoral training continued with a 5-year residency program in otolaryngology – head and neck surgery at the University of Florida in Gainesville. He and his family decided to move back to his wife’s home state of Maine, where he joined Dr. Rankin and the Family ENT team in 2008.
Dr. Sarno enjoys treating a wide variety of head and neck problems, including ear infections, hearing loss, snoring and sleep apnea, voice disorders, thyroid and neck masses, nasal obstruction and sinus disease, and skin cancer removal and reconstruction. He enjoys treating all ages of patients.
Dr. Sarno is a member of the American Board of Otolaryngology, the American Academy of Otolaryngology, the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy, and the Maine and New Hampshire Societies of Otolaryngology. He is licensed in both Maine and New Hampshire and performs surgical cases in York and Portsmouth. He is also a member of Healthcare GIVES, a non-profit organization donating money to various health agencies throughout the Seacoast area.
Outside of the office, Dr. Sarno loves spending time with his wife and three children outdoors, playing and coaching soccer and kayaking.
