Founded in 1923 as the Charlotte Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, CEENTA has grown to become one of the largest multispecialty practices of its kind on the East Coast, so patients don’t have to travel to receive top-quality care.

CEENTA physicians come from prestigious medical schools and fellowship programs, which means patients will receive the best possible care when they visit our offices.

In 1992, CEENTA’s clinical research department, Southeast Clinical Research Associates, LLC, was established to conduct phase I-IV clinical research trials on eye and ear, nose, and throat disorders. To this day, they continue to advance medicine through their research studies.

Today CEENTA has more than 100 providers in nearly 20 locations across the Carolinas. CEENTA provides comprehensive pediatric and adult eye, ear, nose and throat care, and highly specialized care, too. These services include but are not limited to: audiology, allergy treatment, cataract surgery, cochlear implants, cornea diseases, diabetic eye care, glaucoma treatment, head and neck cancer, neuro-ophthalmology, oculoplastics, optical and contact lenses, pediatric airway care, sleep medicine, thyroid treatment, and voice and swallowing care.



What Our Patients Have to Say

I had a keratotomy 20 or 25 years ago, and for 20 years I did well. Then my corneas started to droop and glasses wouldn’t help my vision. I went to see several cornea specialists, and they said there was nothing I could do. Then I went to see Dr. Hammonds, and he said they could fix me right up. He sent me to Dr. Fox, and she fitted me with scleral lenses.
