We mean it when we say we’re cutting-edge.
In 1998, our specialists pioneered the first computerized electronic medical record system for patient charting, record keeping and scheduling in the greater Knoxville region. We have since continued to innovate and expand our otolaryngology services in order to better assess and care for our patients. Our physicians perform surgery at Advanced Family Surgery Center and Methodist Medical Center in Oak Ridge, East Tennessee Children’s Hospital and Parkwest Hospital in Knoxville, Cumberland County Medical Center in Crossville and Baptist Health Hospital in Corbin, KY.
There is simply no substitute for experience.
Since 1973, our physicians and staff have been delivering leading edge medical and surgical therapy for pediatric and adult patients with problems of the ear, nose, throat, and neck. Collectively, our physicians have over a hundred years of experience.

What Our Patients Have to Say:
“Dr. Sewall is an exceptional ENT. Always professional and makes a point to explain exactly what is taking place. He does a great job in communicating and keeping you at ease. All in all, one of the best physicians I’ve ever known. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone.”
“We have been patients of Dr. Hafner’s for over three years. We were both diagnosed with numerous allergies as well as sun-induced facial skin cancer. Dr. Hafner’s personality, skill, and technical expertise all contributed to a fully successful facial reconstruction. We receive weekly shots for our many allergies which are administered by Ashley and Callie. We cannot say enough positive things about these two CCMA’s. Their expertise in administering our shots coupled with their friendly, engaging, and cheerful personalities make for a most pleasant experience.”
“Since I have had this BAHA implant, the staff has given me the best of care. The HEAR Services have been great to adjust the hearing that I need. Heather Bales has been so efficient and kind in her profession. I would highly recommend anybody with hearing loss. It has really changed my life. I was missing out on a lot of things.”
