Cape Fear Otolaryngology is committed to the treatment of the diseases of the ear, nose, and throat. For your convenience, we offer a number of services in our clinic. We have an audiologist on staff that is comfortable with performing hearing tests on our youngest patients, as well as dispensing hearing aides to our most mature. In addition, living in the southeast means that we are disposed to multiple allergens that impact us. Since a large part of what an otolaryngologist does is associated with allergy, we have the ability to test and treat patients who suffer from these problems.
We understand that in this time of information accessibility, you have the opportunity to go to any number of outstanding physicians. We count it a privilege that you are a member in our family of patients. Therefore, we will strive to be worthy of your confidence. We understand that our patients not only care about how much we know, but they also want to know how much we care. We do.
Cape Fear Otolaryngology was founded in 2001 by Dr. Eric Mansfield with a vision of a multi-specialty practice made up of providers with diverse training and knowledge committed to improving a patient’s quality of life. After many years of hard work, personal sacrifice, and dedication, Cape Fear Otolaryngology, PA would not be possible without Dr. Mansfield’s, Dr. Francis’, Dr. Friedrichs’ and Mrs. Mehta’s hard work.
