Matthew Gillihan, MD Board Certified Otolaryngologist (ENT)


Dr. Matthew Gillihan helps adults and children with all types of ear, nose and throat disorders. He is a graduate of the St. Louis University School of Medicine and completed his otolaryngology residency at the University at Buffalo. For more than 20 years, Dr. Gillihan cared for patients in New Mexico, before joining our team at CornerStone Ear, Nose & Throat.

My goal is to always treat patients as if they were a member of my family. I try to listen, determine the best course of treatment, and have patients leave here feeling better than when they first arrived.

Dr. Gillihan offers general ear, nose and throat care for a wide range of disorders. He also has a special interest in the medical and surgical treatment of nasal, sinus problems, including deviated septum. Dr. Gillihan enjoys helping children suffering from ENT problems such as chronic ear infections, tonsillitis, obstructive sleep apnea, and hearing problems.

He provides otolaryngology care in our Charlotte, Indian Land and Monroe offices and welcomes patients from the Queen City and surrounding areas, including Mecklenburg, Lancaster and Union counties.
