The Very Best ENT specialist is Dr. Ford. Skilled, thorough, caring; he listens, asks right questions, explains understandably what procedure/medication is needed. He has genuine concern, takes adequate time/not hurried. I have gone to Dr. Ford over the years for ENT issues. Always received best care. Kudos to Dr. Ford!

I have been seeing Dr. Ford for 3 years now and he and his staff at the allergy clinic have been miracle workers for me. It's difficult to even tell you how much better my allergies and overall health is since I began seeing Dr. Ford. His staff at the allergy clinic are knowledgeable, kind, caring and friendly. I believe Dr. Ford's mission in life, not just his occupation, is to care for and comfort the sick.

Years later, I had surgery again. During that surgery massive amounts of scar tissue and incorrectly constructed structure were deemed to be the reason I suffered for the past 15 years with sinus problems. I would not recommend him as a surgeon. It took a whole year for the allergy Dept. to realize I couldn't do their allergy shots. I was just given more steroids when I complained.

Dr Ford has taken excellent care of my wife. She is struggling with a sinus condition and he has gone the extra mile consistently to diagnose and treat her. He has always shown compassion, loving care, and a commitment to her comfort through her surgery’s.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ford for many years. Through all of my complaints, outpatient surgeries and hospitalizations he has been as consistently caring, compassionate and professional more than any doctor I know. He has been instrumental in diagnosing a rare autoimmune disease and has guided me in the proper direction for care outside of his expertise. More importantly, he continues to follow my progress interacting with my other providers. There aren’t many doctors like Dr. Ford.

I am 55 and have had year round allergies since I was a child. I've taken allergy shots as a child, and as a young adult. This never helped. I used allergy pills and sprays for years and still had constant nasal congestion. I was told I needed treatment for allergies. Having 'been there/done that' with shots, I was totally skeptical in trying Dr. Ford's plan for me, a 3-fold approach including the shots. I only tried it because my insurance paid for it. After 3 months I say WOW, no kidding!

Dr. Ford is a model doctor and person. He has been my doctor over 15 years. Everything about his office is professional. He has helped me with allergies, surgeries, and other ENT needs. He is a class act. He listens extremely well, examines, and then formulates a plan. He explains carefully and answers all questions. He is always seeking to improve his practice. The supporting staff is also amazing.

I had been having frequent sinus infections for over 10 years. The one prior to the surgery activated mono. I needed relief! The congestion wasn't draining. I received allergy testing and Dr. Ford conducted a CT scan. Dr. Ford recommended sublingual immunotherapy & Balloon Sinuplasty. The surgery (Dec. '15) was successful. Congestion drains easily now with the use of a neti pot. My energy keeps improving. Throughout Dr. Ford & the entire staff have been top-notch to me. I am so grateful!

I was on vacation in Florida when I started to get some very heavy nose bleeds. I finally went to the emergency room in South Florida, and they cauterized my nose. But, the next night , my nose bleeds started all over again. I went to a second EM, and was told they do not have an ENT doctor there or on call. So, I called my ENT Dr. Ford, and he said if I could make it to Boone the next day, he would fit me in. I drove 675 miles in 11 1/2 hours to get there. He fixed it, and no bleeds since.

Dr. Ford accurately diagnosed acid reflux as the cause of my chronic cough. After a year of treatment including a change of diet, three prescriptions and several visits, the cough is gone, my sleep apnia has abated and I am sleeping much more soundly. He is jovial, positive and takes a team approach with his patients. I love his manner, his explanation of what is happening and his professionalism.

Dr. Ford and his staff always make your visit as relaxing and stress free as possible. He is a very caring, compassionate doctor.
1 1 Gloria G Graham in Boone, NC – Nov 28, 2016
Dr. Ford is a extremely thorough physician who always HEARS my concerns. He has been my ENT for at around 14 years and through this time my health needs have changed drastically. His continual care for me shows with each office visit as he never rushes these appointments and does a thorough examine. My autoimmune disease is challenging and Dr. Ford, is compassionate and continually looks for new ways to help, heal and provide comfort. My only concern I have with Dr. Ford is his retiring!!!

Dr. Ford is an excellent physician who knows and practices his specialty in an exceptional fashion. He possesses and displays warm interpersonal skills taking the time to explain to his patient the nature of the problem and its solution(s). I recommend him highly.
J. Marshall Edwards in Blowing Rock, NC – Nov 17, 2016
I find Dr. Ford to be highly skilled, showing great concern for his patients and very caring in his manner.
1 Ken Davis in Bakersville, NC – Nov 16, 2016
I first visited Dr. Ford 6 months ago because several conditions including acid reflux disease, Meniere's disease, deviated septum, and hypertrophied turbinate membranes, which I had failed to address over a number of years, suddenly converged and intensified and I became very ill. Over the intervening period Dr. Ford has treated all these conditions (the treatments included surgery) with great competence, tremendous empathy, and exemplary bedside manner. I am now well on the way to recovery.
Carrie in Boone, NC – Nov 10, 2016
I have been a patient of Dr. Ford for around 15 years and my son since birth. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone needing ENT services. He is very knowledgeable, gentle, and extremely caring of his patients. I've had extensive issues and he has helped each and every time.

I have had trouble with sinus headaches for years. Dr. Ford cleared them up for me and further improved my health by testing me for allergies. He then started me on an allergy shot regime which has made me feel better than I have in years. He has further helped me with hair loss and acid reflux. He and his office staff are the best and not only do I thank them so much for all they have done for me but I hardily recommend him.
Leslya Phipps in Wilkesboro, NC – Oct 26, 2016
Dr. Ford is the most caring doctor I have ever had! He always took time to listen to me and answered all my questions. He was never willing to give up on me even when I was ready too. I am very blessed to call him my doctor and friend. THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO!
Kathryn Holland in Mountain City, Tn – Oct 21, 2016
I have been treated by Dr. Ford since 2004. He has treated me for asthma, allergies, chronic sinusitis, Graves' disease, and thyroid cancer. I am happy to say that his knowledge and skills have resulted in my being in good health today. I did have sinus surgery after trying all conservative measures to no avail. The surgery brought an end to the chronic sinusitis. Dr. Ford also removed my thyroid gland which resolved both the thyroid cancer and Graves' disease. I highly recommend Dr. Ford.
