“Went in to see the ENT Institute because my daughter decided to play with beads and put one in her ear. The office staff helped me see the doctor the same day I called and were very nice when we came to the office. They patiently waited while I filled out all the paperwork. The nurse was pleasant and helpful. But the best surprise was Dr. Joseph and how wonderful she was with my daughter. She came in and talked to her, looked at her ear, told her she could fix it, explained that she would hear a jingle but that it would not hurt. I held my daughter while she fished out the bead with a tiny metal stick and we were done in less than 5 minutes. All that worry and waiting trying to convince my 7 year old that the doctor would not hurt her was over and the bead was gone!!!”

“The doctors and the staff were fantastic: very supportive and professional. The process was unreal. I didn’t think it would be this simple easy or painless. The way I felt before and the way I feel now are completely different. It’s been a wonderful experience.”

“I was hooked on nose drops for 30 years. Today, I breathe so much better. Dr. Gallups opened my sinuses and straightened my septum. The recovery process was painless. A few weeks after my surgery, I was sitting on the beach and it just felt like my nose opened up and suddenly I could breathe. I’m now completely off nose drops. I never in my life thought I would be able to breathe this well. “

“Dr. James Burson has been our ENT family physician for over 10 years! I would not even consider going to anyone else regarding ENT unless he referred them. With over 20 years of hospital and healthcare experience, I am very selective regarding physicians and I recommend him continuously.”

“I had sinus surgery less than two months ago and am very pleased with the results. The doctor was always happy and cheery, and he did what he needed to do to get me better. The staff was always very kind and treated me quickly and well. I would recommend the ENT Institute to my friends and family.”

“Dr. Joseph, thank you for being so attentive to our little girl. She told all her friends that a Princess took out her tonsils, (she says you look like Princess Jasmine). From day one- We felt safe with you as her surgeon. As a parent, it was such a relief to know she was being cared for and felt a sense of security in your care.”

“In October 2008, I started to have pain from a growth that had formed on my neck and was told by my general practitioner that I would need surgery to have it removed. I had never had surgery before and the thought of a big scar on my neck was not something I wanted, I started to ask around for the name of the best ENT surgeon in Fulton County. The Ear Nose and Throat institute was the name that kept coming up and so I scheduled an appointment with them to review my situation and decided to have them do the surgery.The surgery was a breeze, but the doctor discovered that the lump in my neck was Cancer. The ENT Institute was very instrumental with helping me find the right oncologist and their team was always available when I required additional Cancer related surgeries. I can’t say enough positive things about my experiences with the Ear Nose and Throat Institute. I am cancer free for 3 years now and to this day, when I show people the site of the 4 inch incision on my neck they can’t see it.”

“I doubt anyone can say they “loved” having major sinus surgery, but if you need it, Dr. Beaty and his team are the people to trust. Dr. Beaty kept my desired outcome and comfort top of mind. I had suffered from chronic allergies and sinus infections for years and was so addicted to sinus spray that I panicked if I didn’t have a bottle on me at all times. I even carried one in my pocket when I was skiing, biking, skating, etc.! I woke up every morning with a major headache and was so stopped up that I had to take a hot shower just to be able to get the slightest amount of air through my nose. Despite my suffering, and seeing many different physicians, Dr. Beaty was the first to suggest that there were physical deformities contributing to my problem.Since my surgery I haven’t used sinus spray at all and have only taken an occasional antihistamine. It is not an exaggeration to say that I literally feel like a different person! I certainly “loved” my results! What a pleasure to be able to breathe and not be a slave to sprays, tissues and pills. Dr. Beaty has a very high level of expertise and his demeanor is kind and caring. I also appreciate that he obviously enjoys his work. His team members are great and each works in tandem to make the practice run smoothly and efficiently. I highly recommend Dr. Beaty and his practice!”
