Like any specialist, when you find one you really like, you feel really fortunate. Joel Hoffman is terrific. Beyond being recognized as one of Georgia's best in his field, his temperament and patient communication is outstanding. His office is efficiently run with a friendly front office staff and excellent nursing team (especially Nicole and Megan), who always put the patients at ease with their friendliness and professionalism. Dr. Hoffman also does work at Children's Hospital of Atlanta (CHOA)--and I'm sure he is as great with the kids as he is with his adult patients. He takes great time with his patients, explains things very well and you never feel rushed. Also, Dr. Hoffman actually listens to his patients! He has a surgical unit on the first floor (directly beneath his offices) which makes a convenient and safe experience for his patients (which I had). Choose Joel Hoffman and you'll have an ENT for life.

I am breathing better than I have in years thanks to Dr Hoffman. I had a fall resulting in a broken nose, but an "incidental" finding showed up, and it was something this nurse had never heard of. I was seen by Dr Hoffman within a few days and of course, he knew exactly what it was. Surgery was done within 3 days! His office staff is so wonderful and works very hard to help keep things running smoothly. Some days there are a wait, but I understand that emergencies happen and everyone wants t

Dr Hoffman did my sinus surgery after years of infections and complications. He and his staff are the utmost professional and knowledge. Every preparation and follow up to surgery was spot on. His knowledge and experience anticipates questions, concerns and provides resolutions for each. His staff is compassionate and available- which is so refreshing in the area of medicine. I recommend Dr Hoffman 100%.
Lance Douglas in Cumming, GA – Nov 27, 2018
Dr. Hoffman is amazing. I can honestly say that my life is better since I walked into his office. He has a tremendous knowledge of what needs to be done and is an awesome surgeon. I was suffering from sinus infections on a regular basis. The results from the surgery are fantastic. I am also getting allergy treatments from his office. Most importantly I can finally breath and haven't been sick in months!

I am usually slow to write reviews, but felt that this more than warranted it. I saw Dr. Hoffman for severe sinusitis. After initially planning for surgery to clear sinus's and deviated septum and several discussions about procedure i opted for the Balloon sinuplasty. I am a professional musician and voice over artist so anything that affects my breathing and playing is crucial to my performance. I have to say that I am more than impressed with the time Dr. Hoffman took with me!
Cathy Thompson in Ball Ground, GA – Jul 03, 2018
Dr. Hoffman and his entire staff were incredible! I have had sinus issues my entire adult life and at 61 years old decided I'd had enough. Dr. Hoffman performed a balloon procedure and resection - there was no pain during surgery! Healing time went quickly and I am breathing better than I have in years while taking absolutely no medication for allergies or sinus issues. This practice is well organized and smooth running, with a kind, helpful staff. You can't miss with Dr. Hoffman!
Tiffany D. in Cumming, GA – Jun 13, 2018
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!
Jeannie in Alpharetta, GA – Jun 11, 2018
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.

I work in healthcare and at 46 years old this was my first surgery under general. I had a deviated septum repair with septoplasty, turbination and a nasal valve suture. The entire process from start to finish was amazing. DR. Hoffman and Deanna FNP, have excellent communication and client relation skills. All apprehension I had initially was dissipated with the knowledge my care team had. The first time in many many years I am able to breathe one hundred percent better. Recommend this practice.
Amanda Barnett in Gainesville – May 09, 2018
Dr. Hoffman did sinus surgery on me in October 2017. I have not a sinus infection since. It's the longest I have ever gone without being sick. Wow. Dr. Hoffman is great and his is office staff is friendly and helpful. If you have to have sinus surgery, I recommend him.
1 Cathy in Dawsonville, GA – Mar 17, 2018
I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Hoffman for any ear, nose, throat issues. He and Deena are absolutely THE best. They take time to listen, are caring, and fix the issues. Both of my children have seen/see them for their ENT issues. If I have to see an ENT, these two are my only choices. Thank you two, and your staff, very much!
Bruce and Donna Young in Murrayville – Mar 16, 2018
Dr. Hoffman is a wonderful doctor who takes time with you as a patient. Both myself and my husband have been to Dr Hoffman and would highly recommend him. He helped my husband to breathe easier after he removed nasal scar tissue from a prior surgery. He is also very friendly and competent. We really like Dr Hoffman.
MD in Cumming GA – Jan 26, 2018
I highly recommend Dr.Hoffman. he is an outstanding physician. Both his clinical expertise and his interpersonal skills are excellent. He is easily approached with questions and attentive to concerns. I trust his judgement and respect his advise. If you or a family member have chronic sinusitis or other ENT problem, I would encourage you to schedule with Dr.Hoffman. I am confident you will be glad you did.
Jeremy L in Cumming, GA – Dec 30, 2017
I am VERY VERY happy with the care I received from Dr. Hoffman and his team. I've suffered from breathing and sleeping trouble for years. The improvement in my quality of live since being treated by Dr. Hoffman has been amazing. He was able t swiftly diagnose and treat the causes of the problem. It has been life-changing to be able to breathe well again. Dr. Hoffman is very professional, and very personable. His team is awesome too!!
Cedric Graham in Cumming, GA – Oct 06, 2017
I've had sinus pressure issues for as long as I can remember. When I went to Dr. Hoffman for an ear issue, I had the opportunity to discuss the sinus issues I was having. He recommended Nasal Septum Surgery and to clean out my Nasal Turbinates. I was a little hesitant at first, but Deena, Dr. Hoffman's PA, did a fantastic job of explaining everything to me. I saw a huge difference within days of having the surgery. Great doctor, great team!!
1 Michael D in Cumming, GA – Aug 03, 2017
After my family doctor and Neurologist could not figure out my vertigo issue, Dr Hoffman was my savior! After a CT scan he noted several areas of concern, we then talked about my options. My surgery was great, well, as much as it can be. I took pain medication for the first day and none after that, none! My recovery was smooth and easy. I will state, I followed their recommendations to the letter, and they answered every question that I had. I would highly recommend Dr Hoffman.
Counselor in Cumming, GA – Jul 27, 2017
Both my husband and I have been to Dr. Hoffman. He performed my surgery to fix my deviated septum and I am very pleased. Finally, I can breathe! His medical staff is great and very professional. Easy to get an appointment for both office visits and surgery.
Miles Stephenson in Gainesville, GA – Jul 08, 2017
Dr Hoffman is outstanding in his approach with patients. I recently went to see him for possible TMJ, he addressed that issue quickly and successfully. Rather than sending on me way he took an holistic approach and addressed several issue regarding my overall health. I had several lingering issues ( 5 Yrs) post CBAG. He and his team treated my weakened voice and referred me to an Neurologist for slowed speech and diminished memory. With voice therapy, CPAP a

Looking for an expert surgeon and ENT, look no farther than Dr Hoffman. Not only is he brilliant he's incredibly kind and fun.
Martha in Cumming, GA – Jun 14, 2017
I had deviated septum surgery under the care of Dr Hoffman. Great results, no pain after sinus surgery --post operative care was great Dr Hoffman was kind and careful to tell me what to expect during post-op which helped me relax I have already been talking to people about his great service. I highly recommend Dr. Hoffman and all his staff is helpful and understanding with any questions I had.
Deborah Wright in Cumming, GA – Apr 26, 2017
Best experience ever with a physician. After years of debilitating sinus problems, tonsillitis every other month, continued steroid and antibiotic treatments, I was referred to Dr. Hoffman. BEST advice I've ever been given. Dr. Hoffman listens and then in a very methodical and cost efficient manner tracks down the problems. After having surgery on tonsils, adenoids, and sinuses, I feel better than I have in YEARS.
Megan in Cumming, GA – Apr 14, 2017
Dr. Hoffman is amazing! I broke my nose 6 years ago and hadn't been able to breathe. I was never able to breathe through my nose after that. Within 10 minutes of my first appointment with Dr. Hoffman he could tell I had injured my nose in the past. He did an outstanding job on my surgery and my sinuses have never been better. He even straightened my nose so I can breathe again. He even was able to make the cosmetic changes I always wanted. He knew exactly what I wanted without me telling him.
Carolyn Britton in Cumming, GA – Mar 14, 2017
I have been seeing Dr. Hoffman for several years due to chronic sinus infections. I have also seen him for nose bleeds, ear stuffiness and horseness. He has been amazing! My problems have cleared up thanks to his tenacity in finding the right treatment for me. He always has a smile, and his staff is top notch. When I call with a question, they are prompt in calling me back. I highly recommend Dr. Hoffman and his practice.
Yvette Holland – Mar 02, 2017
I am completely impressed with Dr. Hoffman's expertise! I am finally breathing through my nose again. It's a great feeling to fully trust my doctor and I am super thankful for a doctor who sincerely cares about finding the root of the problem and not just treating the symptoms. I feel very blessed to have found Dr. Hoffman and highly recommend him to anyone!
A McDaniel in Cumming, GA – Jan 24, 2017
The staff at this practice is absolutely wonderful and knowledgable. Dr. Hoffman performed a tonsillectomy on my 6 year old son. He left me with very few questions because he was so thorough with the surgery details. We followed his instructions and my son had a smooth recovery. Dr. Hoffman performed a septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction and sinus scope on myself Dec. 2016. It was a huge success! I can actually breathe through my nose and have dreamt for the first time in years!
Cumming, GA – Jan 03, 2017
I had sinus surgery with superb results. Dr Hoffman and his staff are very polite and helpful in every way which makes this entire experience extremely pleasant. The results of this surgery has surpassed my expectations. I highly recommend Dr Hoffman for your ENT needs.
1 Mary Beth Douglass in Cumming, GA – May 28, 2016
Dr. Hoffman was our saving grace! My father had previously had surgery with another ENT who was awful. Dr. Hoffman came to the hospital and took over his care and came up with a plan to get my father on the road to recovery quickly. He is an amazing, caring, and trustworthy Doctor. His office staff is great as well!
1 Randy R in Cumming Ga – Apr 11, 2016
Excellent physician very easy to talk to, explains everything in a way I understand
Claudia Robison in Cumming, GA – Feb 29, 2016
Two months ago, Dr. Hoffman did a sinus surgery. It was a very pleasant experience. 3 out of my 4 children has been seeing Dr. Hoffman since we moved here in 2005. He has done surgeries on 2 of my children. He has also operated on my mother and my sister. We all love Dr. Hoffman. He's very professional, friendly, caring and knows how to explain everything. He's also great and gentle with children! My family and I have really enjoyed Dr. Hoffman all these years and will continue to see him.
Cumming, GA in Cumming, GA – Feb 03, 2016
Dr Hoffman is a good surgeon, however I don't think there is enough time spent wit the patients, especially small children to really talk through if procedures are necessary.
1 Jim Price in Gainesville, GA – Jan 30, 2016
Waking up with fatigue after multiple sleep interruptions from breathing issues had become my norm. My CPAP and Afrin were becoming less effective. After a year under Dr. Hoffman?s care, a change to Bi-PAP, a painless bi-lateral turbinate reduction plus nasal valve suspension sutures, I am now...Read More
1 Suzanne M. in Cumming, GA – Jan 24, 2016
Great Doctor!! I am a Registered Nurse from NY and have knowledge and experience of knowing a good Doctor. I would highly recommend him and my children and I would only see him even if we had to travel far.
1 Brenda C. Smith in Kennesaw, GA – Dec 18, 2015
Dr. Joel Hoffman is an outstanding doctor. he took the time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly explain the procedure that would correct my breathing problem. I am elated to say that I can breathe today. If you are searching for a highly qualified professional with a caring attitude, I would definitely recommend Dr. Hoffman.
