Dr. Yantis grew up in Chattanooga, TN, and received his B.S. degree in Biology at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN, where he graduated Cum Laude and was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. He then received his medical degree at the University of Tennessee, where he developed a passion for the anatomy of the head and neck as well as caring for diseases of the ear, nose, and throat.
Along with his wife Elyssa, who is a board-certified pediatrician, he moved to Galveston, Texas where he completed his internship and residency in Otolaryngology at the University of Texas Medical Branch. Throughout his residency, he excelled—presenting his research at national ENT meetings and winning the Residency Research Award. He was also nominated for the Best Overall Resident in the hospital and won the Outstanding Overall Resident in Otolaryngology award.
After completing residency Dr. Yantis was ready to escape the Texas heat and be closer to family. He found a welcoming home in Louisville where he was thrilled to join Advanced ENT & Allergy. For his medical practice, he enjoys all facets of Otolaryngology, including care of sinus and allergy issues, along with surgery of the sinuses, including non-invasive techniques such as in-office balloon sinuplasty. He has significant experience in the evaluation and treatment of thyroid and parathyroid disorders, including advanced training in thyroid and neck ultrasound. He also enjoys caring for children and the various pediatric ENT problems that arise including tonsil and adenoid disease, ear and allergy concerns, as well as infections of the head and neck. He is also trained in sleep apnea surgery including the new innovative Inspire device (hypoglossal nerve stimulator), an alternative to CPAP.
Dr. Yantis and his wife enjoy time with their children Crisman, Olivia, and Lucy. In his free time, he enjoys playing tennis, spending time with his dogs and kids, playing and listening to music, and participating in outdoor activities and water sports such as boating and jet skiing.

Our Customer Testimonials:
“I went to my personal physician regarding an issue that he determined needed the expertise of a surgical ENT with cosmetic expertise. I asked if whomever he recommended could see me that day. It was already 2:30pm. His office contacted Dr. Yantis who said to send me over right away. Dr. Yantis was just the kind of doctor I like to deal with. He spent time listening to my concerns and did not try to rush me through the appointment or act as if he knew everything and I knew nothing. He was very attentive, professional, knowledgeable, skilled and in my opinion genuinely caring. I left his office feeling confident that my problem would be resolved and he agreed to become my allergist as I have severe allergies. I am very impressed with Dr. Matthew Yantis and highly recommend him.”
“The office is large and clean and full of smiling faces the nurses were friendly the staff was friendly and willing to help me out do the fact I have a visual problem everyone seemed happy to be at work and Dr. Yantis was especially friendly we even laughed a couple times in the appointment together. He is willing to do what it takes to find out what’s causing your allergy problems and is willing to listen which I find a lot of doctors seem to want to shut me down immediately he has many ideas of what could be causing my problems and is willing to go the extra mile to do the work to help me live a happier healthier life.”
