Since seeing its first patients in 1997, Charleston ENT & Allergy has been devoted to making high-quality care both affordable and accessible. Since then, Charleston ENT & Allergy has grown to South Carolina's largest private ENT practice, with 12 locations across the Lowcountry, 23-board-certified physicians, 8 mid-level providers, and 15 audiologists. Its fully-accredited, state-of-the-art Surgery Center, with pediatric anesthesiologists to care for even the littlest patients, ensures those undergoing surgery are on their way to recovery quickly. An in-house compounding pharmacy makes medication pick-up convenient, allowing patients to spend more time getting better, and less time driving around town. That's better care in every sense.
