Charlotte Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat Associates

HQ: Charlotte, NC   |  
For more than 90 years Charlotte Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat Associates has provided comprehensive eye, ear, nose and throat care to generations of Carolinians in the Metrolina area. In 1923, three physicians became a part of Charlotte medical history when they formed a partnership and built the first specialty hospital for this region in uptown Charlotte.

Today, Charlotte Eye, Ear, Nose & Throat Associates is one of the largest multi-specialty practices of its kind in the United States. The uncommon foresight of our founding physicians set a precedent that has continued throughout three generations of service to the people of the Charlotte area.

1923-2004: 81 Years of Commitment to the Carolinas
Charlotte Eye Ear Nose & Throat Associates, P.A. is a medical group practice specializing in ophthalmology and otolaryngology that has served the Charlotte area since 1923. This multi-specialty group started as Charlotte Eye, Ear and Throat (CEET) Hospital on Seventh Street, downtown Charlotte. The CEET Hospital was formed in 1923 by a partnership of James P. Matheson, M.D., Clarence N. Peeler, M.D., and Henry L. Sloan, Sr., M.D. The original 37-bed facility was a much-needed addition to the community. Prior to the opening of the CEET Hospital, many patients were placed in local hotels following their surgery because the local hospitals were over crowded.

    Charlotte Eye Ear Nose and Throat Associates Helps Bothersome Ringing In Ears Through New Program

    Ringing, buzzing, hissing or humming in the ears is a bothersome condition called tinnitus. Tinnitus is most commonly caused by exposure to excessive noise which damages the hearing nerve, resulting in a constant sound perception. Other causes of tinnitus include wax impaction, ear infections, Meniere’s disease, head or neck injury, jaw disorders, low or high blood pressure, thyroid problems, certain medications, and acoustic tumors.

    Charlotte Eye Ear Nose and Throat Associates (CEENTA) offers a tinnitus retraining program at their SouthPark office in Charlotte. This program helps patients decrease awareness of their tinnitus using different sound therapies including hearing aids and sound generators (devices used at ear level that produce constant background or “white” noise). Patients are interviewed by an audiologist and put through a series of tests to determine the severity of their tinnitus and/or hearing loss. Counseling and tinnitus retraining sessions are then scheduled with a trained CEENTA audiologist. For more information or an appointment, please call 704/295-3300.

    There are only three sites in North Carolina that offer tinnitus retraining therapy (TRT) programs and Charlotte Eye Ear Nose and Throat Associates is proud to offer this to the greater Charlotte area.

    Tinnitus retraining therapy was developed by neuroscientist, Dr. Pawel Jastreboff at Emory University in Atlanta. Its goal is to reduce awareness of the tinnitus and increase awareness of other external sounds.

    It is estimated that 44 million Americans suffer from tinnitus and more than 30 percent of people over age 65 report it to their doctor. Constant tinnitus may be annoying to the point that it interferes with everyday things including sleep and concentration.
    For more than 80 years, Charlotte Eye Ear Nose & Throat Associates has provided comprehensive eye ear nose and throat care to generations of Carolinians. In 1923, three physicians became a part of Charlotte medical history when they formed the multispecialty group, Charlotte Eye Ear and Throat (CEENT) Hospital on Seventh Street in downtown Charlotte.
