Margo Tanghetti, D.O.

Dr. Margo Tanghetti is a board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric otolaryngologist, who loves working with kids. As a lifelong Californian, raised in Sacramento, she traveled a unique road to practice medicine. In college, she studied costume and textile design and after graduation worked for a designer in New York City. Her path changed after waking up with a lightning bolt moment and deciding she wanted to be a doctor.

During medical school, Dr. Tanghetti was paired with an ENT physician who inspired her to pursue otolaryngology and she has been smitten with the field ever since. She describes her specialty as a mix of artistry and design. Surgery requires great attention to detail, as well as creativity, in order to compose the perfect ending for a patient. Otolaryngology allows her to focus on great detail, which is what she thrives on and knows is needed to make a difference.

Dr. Tanghetti believes her specialty is rewarding because of the children she engages daily. She sees it as a privilege to work directly with kids because of the pure joy and innocence of their personalities. Dr. Tanghetti feels she has a front row seat to positively impact lives through a patient-centered approach to common pediatric ear, nose and throat problems, including sleep apnea, recurrent ear infections, and Oklahoma allergies, to name a few. She wakes up every day excited to absorb the satisfaction associated with a pediatric specialty.

Dr. Tanghetti’s decision to establish her practice in Oklahoma was not difficult – everything about Oklahoma already felt like home to her. She and her husband, James, knew Oklahoma was special and the perfect place to raise a family.
