Eric Flavill, MD, is a board-certified otolaryngologist at the UT Health East Texas ENT Center in Tyler. As an otolaryngologist, Dr. Flavill specializes in treating conditions affecting the ears, nose and throat either medically or surgically. He makes it a priority to help patients understand their diagnosis and treatment options, and works with them to choose the best treatment for their unique needs, priorities and life circumstances.
“My personal approach is to favor trying the lowest risk and most minimally invasive treatments and procedures first. My goal for every patient is to deliver the best possible results, and to achieve those results with the lowest risk and smoothest recovery.” said Dr. Flavill.
He offers surgical treatments ranging from tonsillectomies to complex nasal reconstruction and revision sinus surgery. “For patients who don’t want or need surgery in the operating room, I have great options for simple in-clinic procedures that offer substantial improvement in nasal and sinus symptoms with essentially no time away from work and school.
