Palmetto ENT & Allergy Opens in Lexington

Charleston, SC (March 7, 2022) -- We are very excited to open our doors to patients at 3115 Sunset Boulevard as Palmetto ENT & Allergy expands its scope of care in the Midlands. Doctors Andrew Battiata, Neal Burkhalter, and Melanie Seybt will lead the team in Lexington to ensure patients receive the same great care that they have come to expect from Devine St., Irmo, and ENT for Kids offices.

The expansion to Lexington gives residents in in western Columbia and Lexington a convenient location to seek treatment for ear, nose, and throat conditions. The clinic will also offer hearing services and hearing aids in the Hearing and Balance Center as well as an allergy program; a complete overview of services can be found at

“We are so thrilled to be back in the Lexington community to serve the patients we’ve been caring for over the last decade,” said Dr. Seybt.

In 2020 Palmetto ENT Associates, ENT for Kids, and Charleston ENT & Allergy formed a partnership to provide patients in the midlands with a superior standard of care to treat ear, nose, and throat conditions. Earlier this year, the midlands group was renamed Palmetto ENT & Allergy. Patients can schedule appointments at the new Lexington office as well as the Devine Street, Irmo and ENT for Kids offices by calling (803) 256-7076.
