About Our Staff
Carolina Ear, Nose & Throat Head and Neck Surgery Center was originally founded as Viewmont Ear, Nose & Throat by Dr. Harry. L. King in 1979. The practice changed names in 1999 after Dr. Harrill joined the staff. Dr. King died unexpectedly in a 2001 plane crash.
In 1968, Dr. Robert D. O'Connor began the practice that became known as Graystone Ear, Nose & Throat in the Medical Arts Building in downtown Hickory. Graystone continued to deliver top quality care to the community for the next 32 years.
In 2011, the Graystone joined Carolina Ear, Nose & Throat Head and Neck Surgery Center in order to provide more expansive, and more convenient, patient care.
Our practice has grown to include physicians who have trained at some of the best medical schools and ENT programs in the country. The combination of physicians and healthcare professionals provides the best resources and strengths in the field of otolaryngology in the Catawba Valley area. Our physicians are dedicated to making this region a leader in both medical advances and health care cost containment.
We are a physician owned practice with no legal affiliation with any hospital or university. We feel this is an advantage to our patients, as it allows us to select the best and most cost effective services for our patients, rather than limiting them to certain facilities based on contractual or ownership arrangements.
We physicians at Carolina ENT love working with our office staff and our patients. In spite of our size and our state-of-the-art facilities and expertise, we have maintained a personal family-like working atmosphere. We actively seek out ideas from our patients and staff on how to improve the service we provide. If you think of a suggestion or criticism, we hope you will share it with us!
