Welcome to North Atlanta Ear, Nose and Throat Associates

NAENTA has been providing exceptional ENT care to Cumming and surrounding areas for 23 years. Join us on our mission to provide comprehensive, quality, and compassionate ear, nose, and throat care.


North Atlanta Ear, Nose and Throat Associates treats a wide spectrum of both adult and pediatric ear, nose and throat issues.

Between  the expertise of Dr. Hoffman and Dr. Athavale, our practice rarely needs  to refer out even the most  complex medical conditions.   We take pride in being a full service specialty office with the capability of handling the most complex cases,  similar to  a tertiary care center, i.e.  Emory.

Both physicians have been trained at the top programs and graduated with honors.  Dr. Hoffman specializes in Rhinology (Nasal blockage, sinus and allergy), Facial Plastics  and Sleep medicine.  Dr. Athavale completed extra training in Head and Neck cancer and also has expertise in both Throat (laryngology) and ear (Otology)  problems. Dr. Athavale is one of the only physicians in Georgia performing Robotic Tongue base surgery for Sleep Apnea.   Please click the following links to learn more about our services.
