UT Health East Texas Physicians
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.

After a lot of research, I found Dr. Flavill. I couldn't be happier with my choice. He is unparalleled as a doctor and surgeon. From our very first appointment, he took the time to thoroughly explain everything and I never feel rushed which is something I can't say for most doctors these days. Also, his staff is first-rate. I first started seeing him at his practice in McKinney and chose to drive to Tyler (almost 2 hours) for follow ups just because of the confidence I have in him. He was certainly the right physician for me and I can't say enough about him. Wish I would have found him sooner!

It’s all been said in the other five star reviews. Dr. Eric Flavill and his staff are all I could have hoped for in a medical practitioner. He has been my otolaryngologist physician for several years now and has always provided the absolute best care, and I believe, best advice and treatment during every visit and for every issue.
If you are looking for a doctor whose medical knowledge is encyclopedic, treats the whole person, and takes the time to be caring even while maintaining a very efficient office, then Dr. Flavill is someone you should consider visiting.
