After 39 years of service to the Cleveland area, the Cleveland Head and Neck Clinic will close on December 23, 2022.  It has been  the premiere otolaryngology clinic in Cleveland, TN, and was founded in 1983 by the late Dr. John McNulty and Dr. Jack Byrd.  High quality and compassionate health care has been delivered since that time.  Joined in 1991 by Dr. Tim Viser, the Clinic has offered diagnosis and treatment options for a wide variety of diseases of the head, neck, ears, nose, and throat. This includes the evaluation, excision, and reconstruction of facial skin cancer.  Drs. Byrd and Viser are board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology,  are members of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, and are fellows of the American College of Surgeons.  The Clinic offers a combined experience of over 70 years in the field.

We have thoroughly enjoyed and have been privileged to get to know and treat thousands of patients through the years.  It has been a wonderful career for both of us. Our retirement letter explains our retirement and documents options for our patients.

Cleveland Head and Neck Clinic has also been home to an Audiology Department, headed by Dr. Emily Knowd, Au.D. , and has been providing diagnostic and rehabilitative services for patients of all ages.  All major brands of hearing aids are offered, with expert and personable fitting, post-fitting care, and hearing aid maintenance.  Hearing testing is available, as well as special audiological testing for other ear disorders.  Unfortunately, Dr. Knowd will also be departing our clinic and the area at the end of November, 2022.
