I saw Dr. Smith for my sinus surgery and I couldn’t be happier. He was so helpful, reassuring, and informative during this process. He calmed my nerves and always took the time to explain everything to me. He and his staff are as professional as they are kind and I am so pleased with my results. They are amazing and I would highly recommend.

Dr. Smith of Cornerstone ENT performed surgery to straighten my deviated septum. Everything went perfect. Surgery/recovery was not near what I was dreading. Doctor and all staff were great and made the whole process very smooth. I can now breath through my nose easily and no longer have the daily congestion that I’ve had for many many years

After seeing two other doctors who provided no real diagnosis, I was feeling anxious and worried as my symptoms continued. Through my own research, I suspected LPR, and was hoping to find an ENT in Charlotte who offers TNE (Transnasal Esophagoscopy—which is easier, faster, and less expensive than an endoscopy) and I was THRILLED when I discovered he did. The TNE was painless and fast, and Dr. Smith confirmed that I had treatable LPR and mild inflammation. I am so grateful to have found him!!

Dr Smith and his staff have been fantastic with my little girl ... she was just about 18 months when she had tubes put in her ears. Recently, at four years old we have returned for treatment for nosebleeds. Dr Smith has pulled three frogs out of her ears so far, and it doesn't seem to get old. He has such a good way with little kids!

Dr. Smith assessed an extremely painful boil in my nose and immediately began the process of eliminating the abscess and pain. He followed up with me three times during the process to make certain all was well. He is truly professional and sincerely cares for his patients. I certainly recommend Dr. Smith and the staff at Corner Stone Ear, Nose & Throat.

I would highly recommend Dr. Smith. He was instrumental in helping my wife identify a continuous swollen lymph node condition which turned out to be related to Lupus, which is an extremely hard condition to determine. In addition his facility is clean and well maintained, his staff was prompt and his knowledge was outstanding. Made us very comfortable.

Dr. Smith assessed my ear infection and eliminated the abscess and pain. He met me three times over the course of two weeks. The entire staff and office at Cornerstone Ear, Nose, and Throat were fantastic. I couldn't be happier with their service and professionalism.
