About Us


Professional service.

Innovative treatments.

The highest standard of compassionate patient care.

These are the central tenets of our practice and the cornerstones of our philosophy for more than 50 years. We pride ourselves on consistently offering comprehensive care tailored to meet the needs of each individual patient by combining old-fashioned quality customer service with the latest proven medical care and technology. Crucial for all of our providers is the responsibility to not only provide the highest level of care, but to do so in a manner that is also both compassionate and cost-effective.

Our suite of available services includes the most up-to-date options for management of all pediatric and adult conditions of the ears, nose (including sinus and breathing problems), throat and tonsils, voice and swallowing, and neck (including head and neck cancer and thyroid masses) including full service hearing testing, hearing aid services, speech pathology services and allergy diagnosis and management.

We now have six convenient locations for you to choose from, including locations in Raleigh, Brier Creek, Cary, Garner, Holly Springs, and Wake Forest.


Raleigh Capitol Ear Nose and Throat came into being in July 2012, with the merger of Raleigh ENT (founded in 1965 by Dr. Nat Sparrow) and Capitol ENT (founded by Drs. Craig Price and Michael Parker in 1983).

These two premier practices combined in order to provide more expansive services and more convenient patient care. Raleigh Capitol Ear, Nose & Throat is Physician-owned, and is not owned or managed by any hospital or university. This represents a significant advantage to our patients, as it allows us to select the best and most cost-effective services for our patients, rather than limiting them to certain facilities based on contractual or ownership obligations.


Our dedication to excellence is reflected in the expertise of our Physicians, who graduated with honors from their medical schools and completed additional Pediatric and Adult ENT training from the leading Otolaryngology (ENT) programs in the country, including Johns Hopkins University, the University of North Carolina, Duke University, the University of Virginia, Emory University, Ohio State University and the University of Pittsburgh among many others. Our dedicated staff of health care professionals further reflects our commitment to service— when you call our offices, you will speak with an actual person, not a computer phone tree.

If you have any questions concerning the services offered at Raleigh Capitol Ear, Nose & Throat, we encourage you to contact us.
