""My goal is to listen to patients and families and understand the problem. This helps me guide families to make the best decision for them. It is a privilege to treat patients and families, and I will always make sure that they are cared for in the best possible way.""

  • Randy Bly is a pediatric otolaryngologist and cares for patients and families with a variety of problems in the head and neck. He has specific interests in patients with speech and swallowing problems, vascular malformations, breathing difficulties, neck masses, and congenital anomalies. He incorporates resources available at Seattle Childrens Hospital to provide the highest level of care to patients and families. His research interest is in how surgery is planned, guided, and analyzed in order to improve patient outcomes, reduce the length of hospital stays, and recover more quickly.

      Dr. Bly met us in the OR at Seattle Children's the night my 7 year old son Beau had an arterial bleed on post op day one after his tonsillectomy. He was calm, reassuring upon arrival. I trusted him immediately. He was able to quickly cauterize the vesel after the anesthesia took effect. He explained everything very thoroughly afterwards and checked on Beau in the ICU the following day and was just a genuinely kind young man.
