About Us

Here for the long haul. Here for you.

Welcome to Greenville Ear, Nose, and Throat Associates

Founded in 1992 by Drs. Patrick McLear and John Phillips, with Charles Smith joining shortly after that, Greenville ENT Associates has steadily grown in numbers and expertise. The practice now includes 14 partners and a superb cadre of professionals including advanced practice providers, audiologists, speech and language pathologists, nurses, and medical assistants.

In 2009 the group joined and became employed by the Greenville Health System. Then, in 2021, Greenville ENT moved back into independent practice in order to have the flexibility to meet the changing needs of our community in the Upstate of South Carolina.

At Greenville ENT, we have the expertise to care for the full spectrum of ear, nose, and throat issues in patients of all ages. We are a full-service comprehensive and subspecialty ENT practice, providing care aspects that are usually only available in a university hospital. Whether your child needs help with all of those ear infections or you or a loved one has head and neck cancer, we have a team of professionals with the knowledge, skills, and compassion you need.

We are here, caring for Greenville and the Upstate with excellence and compassion, just like we have for 30 years. We look forward to caring for you and your family for generations to come.
