The first in the region to offer allergy drops!
Since 1994, the physicians of CornerStone Ear, Nose & Throat have changed the lives of patients in the Charlotte region with effective, innovative, and personalized care. Continuing in that tradition, we’re proud to announce the addition of allergy services to our practice. Along with traditional allergy testing and treatment, we are the first in the region to offer sublingual immunotherapy, which uses drops under the tongue that patients administer at home instead of weekly allergy shots!

Bilateral myringotomy and tube placement, or “placing PE tubes”, is the most common surgical procedure performed in the United States, and for good reason. Simply put, for the right child, it is a simple, safe procedure, which can help resolve chronic middle ear infections while preventing future infections and eliminating the need for numerous courses of antibiotics.
