About Us

North Atlanta Ear, Nose & Throat N

AENTA has been providing comprehensive Ear, Nose and Throat care for Cumming, (and now Dahlonega too) and Surrounding areas for over 25 years.

Dr. Hoffman welcomed Dr. Athavale to the practice in May, 2015. Dr. Athavale is now seeing patients in Cumming and Dahlonega.

With the addition of Dr. Athavale, North Atlanta Ear, Nose and Throat P.C. will be able to take care of every sub- specialized area of the Ear, Nose and Throat specialty.

Dr. Hoffman specializes in Rhinology (sinus, allergy etc) and Sleep medicine (snoring, sleep apnea). Dr. Athavale brings specialty care to ear disorders/Surgery (including cochlear implants), Head and Neck Cancer, and Robotic tongue base surgery.

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.
