Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

I had an issue with my ear that required surgery. As with any surgery the potential risks are always scary. I went to several surgeons and put off the surgery for 10 years because they just didn't make me feel confident. Finally I met Dr McAfee. His calming demeanour and grasp of the situation just made me feel comfortable. I had the surgery and everything went perfectly. I cannot say enough good things about Dr McAfee. From our first visit to my final post op visit. He was tremendous. He is obviously highly skilled, but more importantly he cares. He takes the time to explain everything. He responds to every question. Never makes you feel rushed. He just makes you feel like your case is important to him. And after the surgery he was generally happy, not just as a doctor who resolved a patient's issue, but as a human being who just helped another human being. That type of personal personal care is tough to find these days. Thank you Dr McAfee.

A few years back I was going to another EN&T location for hearing loss. That place had recommended hearing aids. After multiple visits and adjustments, they were unable to help me. Getting frustrated with my hearing loss, I reached out to Coastal Ear, Nose and Throat. I spoke with Dr. Houston and Dr. McAfee. They told me about otosclerosis. After a stapedectomy procedure in for both ears, my hearing was so much better. I don't even use my hearing aids today. Dr. McAfee performed both procedures and carefully explained the benefits and possible risks of the procedure. I am very grateful for Dr. McAfee and the staff at Coastal Ear, Nose, and Throat. I highly recommend Dr. McAfee and the team at Coastal. They definitely made my quality of life so much better than it was previously.

Dr McAfee is a caring and thorough physician. He quickly solved my problem. He listens and is very comforting. I also have to give a compliment to his office staff. Everyone there is knowledgeable, pleasant and realize your time is valuable; they do not keep you waiting.

Would adamantly not recommend this practice or DR. And this is why: The staff can be hit or miss, meaning they can be flat out rude with attitude or very nice. Depends who you get, and what sort of day theyre having. Thats the first warning sign. 2) Made an appointment for severe vertigo. Arrived, and filled out all the paperwork. Sat in the office for >30 minutes before one of the front staff called me over to say Dr Mcafee had to leave and that i missed my appointment. I said I was here and had to fill out all your paperwork. They said they still had to reschedule. So upon leaving the dr is out in the parking lot loading up his car with equipment. Very unprofessional. If this was any indication of their attitude or services I'm glad I found out now before having any procedures done and will not be back.

Dr. McAfee is an incredible physician and an even better surgeon. From the minute I met him upon my initial consultation to the follow up after my surgery, Dr. McAfee is the gold standard as to what a doctor should be. He explains things thoroughly, isn't in a rush, allows the patient to ask any questions or ask for further clarification and has excellent bedside manner. In my 45 years, Dr. McAfee is the best doctor I've ever had. And the office is the most organized I've ever seen.

Truly Perfect across the board. Sits with you for an extended time,actively listening, before he even examines you. Extremely thorough. Kind, non alarmist. Obviously beyond competent and educated- (hes a neurotologist that’s not exactly an easy course of study) but able to relay that information needed to you in a simple easy to understand Manner. All while maintaining humor. Never fill These surveys out- he deserves the review. He is OUTSTANDING.Now for his front desk staff..the woman who took my Initial appointment lacked patience, listening skills and was extremely notably rude every time I spoke to her as I had to reschedule. It is a shame that she is the first impression that someone would have for this manS office. Front desk workers at a doctors office sometimes have such an heir about them- one that the NEUROSURGEON THEMSELVES would never have.

Dr. McAfee helped me monitor my surfers ear (he's performed many procedures to help surfers and swimmers etc, is dialed into the latest ways to handle and was very clear and helpful to me along the way) until it was time to have a canalplasty. I'm glad I found him and he's changed my quality of life, thank you!

I saw Dr. McAfee and I thought he was very professional and friendly. I have Meniere's and was treated originally by Dr. Mary, who I love, as she fixed my dizziness and I am forever grateful to her. Dr McAfee is very knowledgeable and since Dr Mary is no longer seeing patients, I will use Dr McAfee as he seemed very caring.

Dr. McAfee provided care to my son for years whenever he would have an ear issue. Recently I saw him with my first ever adult ear infection. He has provided excellent care to both me and my son. I highly recommend him as a provider.

Dr. McAfee took care of my 2 year old son today. He was kind, compassionate and helped us get through the visit with a smile. You can tell he works with kids often. He was quick to identify the issue and solved it in the same visit as well. I would trust him with my son’s life and would recommend him to anyone who needs a smart and thorough ENT. 10/10 in my book.
