Florida ENT & Allergy

Pamela Baines, MD, is a board-certified otolaryngologist, or Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) and head & neck surgeon, who has practiced in Tampa for 20 years. Dr. Baines was attracted to ENT as a specialty because of the incredible variety of patients and conditions she could treat, as well as the wide variety of surgeries performed in otolaryngology. These surgeries include ear operations; sinus surgery (including minimally invasive surgery); nasal procedures; skin cancer surgeries and reconstructions; thyroid and parathyroid surgeries; treatment of cancers of the ears, nose, and throat; throat operations such as tonsillectomy and surgeries on the voice box; as well as facial plastic surgeries.  Dr. Baines is a diplomate of the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy and has an interest in allergic conditions that affect the ears, nose, sinuses, throat, and skin. Allergies are a large part of her practice. In addition to providing testing to diagnose environmental and food allergies, she provides allergy desensitization (immunotherapy) for environmental allergies, including allergy shots and oral mucosal therapy (drops or tablets under the tongue and allergy toothpaste). As a member of the American Contact Dermatitis Society, she offers skin patch testing, to diagnose chemical sensitivities causing troublesome skin reactions. Her practice philosophy is that the best medical outcomes involve shared decision making between patient and physician.

After graduating from Plant High School, Dr. Baines received her bachelor degree in Molecular Biology at Wellesley College in Massachusetts, then her medical degree from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in 1988. She completed her otolaryngology residency at LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport, Louisiana. Following residency training, she practiced in Plantation, Florida, then returned home to Tampa in 2000. She had a solo practice for 11 years before joining Florida ENT & Allergy. She serves patients in 3 offices: South Tampa, Mid-Tampa, and Riverview, and is thrilled to be part of such a dynamic practice.

Outside of work, Dr. Baines enjoys learning English hunter-jumper horseback riding, sailing with her husband, gardening, and visiting her grandchildren in Virginia. She also volunteers at the Judeo-Christian Clinic.

Dr. Daniel Vincent, a Tampa native has been in practice in the Tampa Bay community since 1998, concentrating on the care of patients with voice and swallowing problems. He completed medical school at the University of South Florida College of Medicine, residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (Ear, Nose and Throat) at the Medical University of South Carolina, and a specialty fellowship in Laryngology at Baylor University School of Medicine in Houston.

As a Laryngologist, Dr. Vincent focuses on the management of problems related to the voice and swallowing. He has provided state-of-the-art techniques for care of his patients since he first opened his solo practice in 1998. Since then, he has seen his practice grow steadily, and he now serves as director of the Florida Center for Voice and Swallowing. The Center is a clinical division of Florida ENT and Allergy, an independent single-specialty group of 25 ENT physicians in Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco counties.  Dr. Vincent directs a team of two speech pathologists and clinical staff who together provide care out of three offices in Tampa, Brandon and St. Petersburg.

Patients who seek care for voice problems include performers, professional speakers, singers and others who depend on a good voice for their livelihood. But there are many others who are concerned about a change in voice quality after strenuous voice use, smoking, occupational exposures, allergy flares or illness.  Dr. Vincent and the voice team are there for anyone whose life is impacted by their voice quality. Some voice problems are related to underlying medical conditions like neurological disorders or respiratory disease. Dr Vincent treats many patients with these kinds of issues, and also coordinates care with outside consultants as needed for complete care of patients.

Dr. Vincent is currently serving as the Immediate Past President of the Florida Society of Otolaryngology. He is also a fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology and the American College of Surgeons.
