What People Say About Dr. Frank Mauldin, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

After having Thyroid Cancer, in 2005, I was put on Levothyroxin. I never regained any of my former vigor. My health kept going downhill, no matter how the Drs adjusted the levothyroxin levels up or down...always too high or too low. My heath was so bad that I could hardly get out of bed...no energy, swelling, anger, depression, and so much more... Dr Mauldin kept checking for something to help me get my health back... Turned out that I was having an allergic reaction to levothyroxin fillers...and sever sleep apnea. He changed my medicine to mix of natural and synthetic. Name brand Synthroid and natural Armour... I highly recommend Dr Mauldin. It has been 10 years since I started taking my new medications, it did take some time to get the dosage right. However, now I can enjoy my children and grandchildren, live my life, and not in a chair or bed all day.

I recently had surgery on the December 21st 2018 for a Septoplasty and Turbinate Reduction, I was very impressed by the staff of Carolina ENT and Dr. Maudlin was very professional. The procedure was explained to me in detail as well as what was to be expected through the recovery process. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to feel better pertaining to issues with their ear, nose or throat. Thank you for your experience and precision!!! Sincerely, Steven R. Schneider

Dr. Mauldin by far is the best ENT Dr. I've had the pleasure of being under his care He's kind and caring towards his patients and takes the time to explain things without rushing you. I've been seeing him since he was at Greystone ENT. And I will continue seeing him as needed.
