After separating from the military, Eric chose to stay in the city that had embraced him as a soldier, Fayetteville. He opened Cape Fear Otolaryngology, an Ear, Nose and Throat practice.
After 15 successful years in practice in Fayetteville, he moved to Holly Springs, North Carolina to give his son the opportunity to enroll in the Engineering Academy at Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School.

He currently has taken on the challenge of crossfit and is a struggling avid member of Crossfit Shoofly in Fuquay-Varina.
With 2 small children, ear infections are just about as common as walking. After our visit, both of my children have not had any infections. I highly recommend Holly Springs ENT.
Holly Springs ENT was a recommendation from a friend and I’m glad I listened. Their customer service is amazing and the doctors are extremely nice. Great practice.
Found Holly Springs ENT online and have been very pleased with the level of treatment I’ve received. Great location and quality doctors.
