Dr. McClelland is a Board Certified Otolaryngologist (ENT) as well as the Founding Partner of CornerStone Ear, Nose & Throat, PA.

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 are important to him.

The most appealing aspect of the practice of otolaryngology to me is that, as physicians in this field, we can so often and so positively impact the lives of our patients.

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.
