Clinical expertise and an unwavering commitment to each patient – these are the principles with which Dr. McClelland founded CornerStone Ear, Nose & Throat, and they have been embodied in the growth and success of the practice since its inception in 1994. They have been reiterated more recently in the Mission Statement. Dr. McClelland regards the doctor-patient relationship as a partnership with the common goal of improving each patient’s health and well-being. He believes communication is vital, and properly addressing the patient’s concerns and expectations is important to him.
Dr. McClelland attended and graduated with honors from Princeton University. He earned a medical degree from the University of Virginia. He then completed five years of post-graduate training in both general surgery and otolaryngology at the Albany Medical Center in Albany, NY. Dr. McClelland and his wife moved down to the Charlotte NC area to begin a new practice focusing more on quality of care, patient experience and clear communications with referring doctors and patients. He continues to enjoy seeing patients and also serves as the Administrative Partner for the group.
Sinus Surgery Shouldn’t be Scary!
The most misunderstood procedure that we do at CornerStone Ear, Nose & Throat is sinus surgery. In our hands the procedure takes about an hour. It is an outpatient procedure that does not require packing of the nose. Post-op pain is mild and patients can usually return to normal activity in 3 to 4 days.
