Dr. Athavale speaks clear and concise. I have hesitated getting my sleep apnea procedure for over 10 years. After meeting with Dr. Atahvale, I went for it and am very pleased with the results.

Excellent Results

I had struggled with nasal congestion and nasal polyps for years. Tried all types of surgeries and medications but still couldn’t breath through my nose and had completely lost all sense of smell. Heard about Dr. Athavale from a friend and after the first appointment knew I had found the right guy. With a combination of a surgery and new, specialized medications my issues have been resolved. My sinuses are completely clear and I can breath without any issues. Plus my sense of smell is coming back. Really life changing and I’m finally able to enjoy food again. Can’t recommend Dr. Athavale and North Atlanta ENT enough.

Best Dr. for me!

Came to the office for mass on my thyroid, Dr.A, was very straight forward in his concerns and did a biopsy on the spot, called me with results and it was cancer. He calmed me and scheduled my surgery quickly, removed the thyroid that was more intense than originally thought. He took care of the problem and the scar was all across my neck and healed great and is barely noticeable unless I point it out. I also had a reaction to the stitches with my body rejecting them and not dissolving and he was very quick to make another appointment to remove them so I didn’t have any discomfort. He was professional and confident and I appreciate those qualities in a surgeon and doctor!!

Very straightforward and excellent doctor/surgeon

Went to Dr. Athavale regarding two thyroid nodules. One turned out to be papillary cancer with Hashimotos. He is a very thorough doctor, straight-forward, which is by and far what I prefer...he is up to date on treatments, called coordinating doctors for me since I have a clotting disorder...he's wonderful. Called me with all test results! Listened to me and was very cooperative. I couldn't be happier. I can be blunt, and he was not bothered by it at all. I am very pleased with the experience and glad he turned out to be my doctor. I was very comfortable with him and I highly recommend him.

Best Doctor for Tonsilitis of Any Kind/ Really knows his field!

Dr. Athavale really listened to my concerns and understood my long battle with a rare form of tonsillitis. The ER and no one else ever got it, but he did! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ENT SPECIALIST AND SURGEON. BEST I'VE SEEN! I know a little about great and not so great ENTs and Dr. Athavale is at the top of his game. Don't waste your time with other ENTs and treatments that don't work for tonsillitis- go see him and feel better!
