My son couldn't breathe out of his nose

My 16 year old son has always had trouble breathing out of his nose and large tonsils which were always prone to infection. Dr. Hoffman explained in detail what needed to be done and how much he could help improve my sons issues. He was patient and answered all of our questions and made us feel at ease. After the surgery he was still diligent with making sure everything healed properly and that we were happy with all of the results. My son can breathe now!!! It is incredible! Tiffany D.

Great Doctor!

I highly recommend Dr. Hoffman. After six months of breathing problems and a whistling sound from my nose, I sought treatment from North Atlanta ENT & Allergy. This decision turned out to be life changing for me. Dr. Hoffman performed surgery to close a perforated septum and correct nasal valve collapse on both sides of my nose. As of writing this review, I am six weeks post-op and can breathe so much better! I sleep better, have more energy and feel fantastic.

Balloon Sinuplasty

I had the procedure done on Feb 20th. So far the result has been outstanding. Prior to my procedure my sinuses were not draining properly and so I was getting frequent sinus infections and chronic headaches. Dr Hoffman explained the procedure in advance very well so there were no surprises. Immediately after the procedure, I flushed my sinuses regularly as directed. There was slight discomfort for a couple of days, but nothing remarkable. For the past 2 months, I have had no headaches and no sinus pressure whatsoever. I keep hearing about this being a bad season for allergies but so far, so good for me. I highly recommend Dr. Huffman!!!

Excellent Sinus Surgery Experience

I had thought about having sinus surgery for decades and finally decided to have it done over a month ago by Dr. Hoffman. I have been plagued with chronic sinusitis and congestion for most of my life. My recovery from surgery was swift and I can breathe freely again. If you're thinking about having this surgery I encourage you to see Dr. Hoffman. I only wish that I had this surgery done by Dr. Hoffman a long time ago.

The Best ENT Specialist & Practice Ever!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Joel Hoffman's for more than 3 years. His bedside manner is always very professional & friendly! He always took the time to explain my options. My sinus surgery went better than I expected and with very little down time or discomfort. I would recommend Dr. Joel Hoffman, a very knowledgeable, and skilled surgeon. His NP Deena Robinson is also remarkable and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend his practice!!
