The Ear Nose & Throat Centers of Texas currently include two office locations established by Dr. Gretchen A. Champion and Dr. Richard Thrasher in Allen and McKinney. Dr. M. Ben Brindley recently joined the Ear Nose and Throat Centers of Texas moving from a successful practice in Plano. The Allen office is adjacent to Presbyterian Hospital of Allen in Medical Office Building 1 while the McKinney location is in the Medical Office Building adjacent to the Medical Center of McKinney. At each location we provide care for all ages from birth to the elderly.

Dr. M. Benjamin Brindley is certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology and specializes in pediatric and adult ear, nose, and throat disorders. Dr. Brindley is a Texas native. He grew up in Waco, the son of a well-respected otolaryngologist. He graduated Magnum Cum Laude from Texas A&M University with a degree in biomedical science.

Our goal is to provide the most advanced care possible for our patients. To that end, we are utilizing the most innovative technology for patient management. This includes the implementation of a “paperless” office where all of our records are contained in an electronic medical record (EMR). As part of the EMR system, we have implemented a “patient portal” which allows you to request, cancel, and change appointments, view lab results, update your demographic information, request refills on medication prescribed by our practice, and e-mail us with questions regarding your health.
