About Carolina Ear, Nose & Throat, Sinus and Allergy Center
Carolina Ear, Nose & Throat Sinus and Allergy Center was originally founded as Viewmont Ear, Nose & Throat by Dr. Harry. L. King in 1979. In 1998, with the addition of Dr. Harrill, the practice began a transformation to a regional provider of ENT care and became Carolina Ear, Nose & Throat.
In 2011, Graystone Ear Nose and Throat joined Carolina Ear, Nose & Throat Sinus and Allergy Center. With the addition of Dr. Mauldin, the practice has grown to its current staff of seven physicians, two physician assistants, and six audiologists. This has allowed us to provide more expansive and convenient patient care.
