About Us

Our Specialties

Over two decades ago, Dr. John T. McElveen founded Carolina Ear & Hearing Clinic, PC, a private medical and surgical practice specializing in the diseases of the ear. As experts in Otology and Neurotology, our team focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders involving the ear, its related skull base structures, and specific areas of the central nervous system. Both are highly specialized areas, requiring at least five years of residency training, in addition to completion of medical school and Otology and Neurotology fellowship training. 

Our Mission

Each and every day, we fulfill our mission of providing world-renowned otological and audiological care. By helping each patient understand the full scope of their diagnoses and treatment options, we create an ideal experience that leaves them feeling understood and in good hands.

To be able to clearly hear my sweetheart say "You are beautiful" when I turned on my new hearing aids was amazing. They are life changing! The audiologists are kind, patient, knowledgeable, and just generally awesome!
