Pediatric ENT Treatment

Greenville ENT is proud to have the Upstate’s only pediatric otolaryngology division. Led by Dr. Alexander and Dr. Penn, our team of surgeons, physician assistants, pediatric audiologists, and medical assistants is dedicated to the care of pediatric patients. We will treat your children as if they were our own.

Why Do You Need a Pediatric Otolaryngologist?

The vast majority of ENT problems in children are expertly treated by Greenville ENT’s comprehensive otolaryngologists. But sometimes children have complex ENT disorders and need advanced care.

Drs. Alexander and Penn are the only board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric ENTs providing care to the Upstate. They are skilled in specific surgical procedures that aren’t commonly performed by comprehensive ENT surgeons.
