My ear doctor in Fayetteville, NC had recommended Dr McElveen to do my right ear stapedectomy. He explained the procedure clearly, and answered all my questions. The surgery was very successful and I am very grateful for the results, I can now hear in my right ear. His staff was very helpful and courteous. I am now scheduled for stapedectomy surgery on my left ear after 4 months of my first surgery. I highly recommend Dr. McElveen because of his skills as a surgeon and his professionalism.

Had to reschedule follow up surgical appointment because of doctor's surgical schedule. Got there 15 minutes early for my 11:00 appointment; was taken back for hearing test at 11:20. Went back out to sit in waiting room where there were several people who had come in way after I did. Every one was taken to the back before I was. I was taken back at 12:15, very frustrated with their procedure of getting patients to the doctor in order of their arrival. Only saw doctor for around 5 minutes.

I went to 2 ear specialists in the Raleigh area who weren't able to help me before I found Carolina Ear and Hearing Clinic. Dr McElveen was highly recommended. I had surgery to remove a cholesteatoma from my right ear and a repair to my tympanic membrane which went extremely well. From the diagnosis, to the surgery, to the followup, Dr McElveen and his staff were very competent and caring. They helped to reduce my anxiety before surgery and gave me hope for improved hearing in my ear.

The doctor and staff were very professional and competent. I received excellent care.
in Raleigh, NC |
Dr. McElveen and his team are very professional and personable. Dr. McElveen performed a Tympanoplasty in my right ear 3 months ago (to repair a perforation left from a ventilation tube from a previous ENT doc's surgery nearly three years ago). Dr. McElveen and his team were reliable, helpful, and reassuring through the entire process from pre-op to post-op. My ear has properly healed from the surgery, and now I can swim, shower normally, and hear again!
Raleigh, NC |
I was on time. I had to wait one hour and forty minutes to see the doctor. I understand schedules get messed up. No one came to me while I was waiting to apologize for the delay and let me know when I would be seen. When Dr. McElveen came in he didn't say anything about the delay. I'm uncomfortable going to an office where the staff and doctor place so little value on my time.

in Mebane, NC |
My daughter had a persistent perforation in her eardrum. Our local ENT was unable to repair it after two attempts and referred us to Dr. McElveen. Dr. McElveen repaired the hole which in turn restored her hearing in that ear. He is very good with children, and I am so thankful for his expertise.
in Cary, NC |
Dr. McElveen is an incredible surgeon and has performed many operations on my ear. After 10 years of persistent hearing issues, he was able to fully restore hearing in one of my ears by using an omega prosthesis during a tympanoplasty.
