What People Say About Dr. Bruce Gantz, MD

Dr. Gantz is one of the best, if not the best, ENT/ Otolaryngologists. Our son had a complicated cholesteatoma and he had 4 failed surgeries in Atlanta and we are so glad we found Dr. Gantz. He has developed a new technique, it worked wonderfully the first time! He is kind and wonderful with patients and a premier surgeon. We cannot recommend him enough.

I saw Dr. Gantz for sudden hearing loss when I was 39. My care was excellent; his explanations were clear and helpful. He has earned his reputation as an excellent doctor.

Dr. Gantz has a god complex. Be aware that the clinic orders an audiogram when you make an appointment without telling you or giving you a choice. This is a $500 test. The doctor doesn't care about your past medical history, either. I would avoid this clinic if you can.
