About

Dr. Beth McNulty grew up in Western Kentucky and moved to Louisville for her undergraduate education. She then went on to receive her medical degree at the University of Louisville and was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. Upon graduating from medical school, she completed her residency in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Louisville. It was during this time that she discovered her true passion in ENT, Otology & Neurotology. She went on to complete a two-year fellowship in Otology, Neurotology and Cranial Base Surgery at the Michigan Ear Institute in Farmington Hills, Michigan.

She is a member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, Triological Society, and American Neurotology Society, among others. She is also board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery.

McNulty is excited to be back in her home state with her husband, Nathan, and their children, Reagan and Anthony.

Personal Statment

I specialize in pediatric and adult hearing loss, tinnitus, dizziness and imbalance, chronic ear infections and skull-based tumors. I see children and adults.

The reason I chose this specialty dates to medical school. I remember the first time I experienced the restoration of hearing, and the magic. It was a lady who had been basically deaf on one side for about 20 years because of scarring of the ear canal, and she was trying on a bone-anchored hearing aid.

When that device restored her hearing, tears immediately came to her eyes. It was really moving for everybody in the room, and I knew then that’s what I wanted to do.

I think one of my strengths as a physician is that I’m able to listen to and relate to my patients. Being a Kentucky native gives me a certain advantage with our patient population, for sure.

I try to step back when I’m counseling patients and think, ‘How would I treat my mother? How would I treat my child?’ I try to bring that to every patient encounter.

    Great care. Seemed rushed though. Not enough time to discuss the surgery and expected outcomes.

      I have never seen a ENT physician. Dr. McNulty was awesome. She sat in a way that we had eye contact the entire time versus being on the UK computer. She explained why and what tests were done. She explained the results in a way that I could understand and answered all my questions. We developed a plan of care together. She was awesome and I am glad she is now on my team of physicians.

      It would have been nice to have had information on how to clean ears with baby oil, etc. In writing, it was difficult to internalize the information while being treated and listening at the same time. The care tender was very busy and did act like she did not have much time for me.

      The care providers listened to me and answered any questions that I had, however, the time spent with the primary doctor was short and some of the explanations were cut short and I was referred to do my own research or read handout materials. The care providers seemed receptive to my input. I understand that my condition is not a simple one which I am sure is just as frustrating and puzzling to the care providers as it is for me.
