Saw Dr. Mixson for infrequent dizziness and inner ear problem. He was prompt, courteous and extremely thorough. He also took time to listen to everything that I had to say. Excellent ENT!

The staff at ENT of Athens are wonderful! The only problem I have is with the phone situation. Its very frustrating being put on hold multiple times! My time is valuable too! Those girls do a GREAT job but they need more help answering those phones!

I did not particularly care for his demeanor. His comments were smug and a judgmental from the first few minutes I was in the room with him. Couldn't wait to get out of there. Never going back!

This doctor didn't even listen to me when I was explaining to him my symptoms. He disregarded what I had to say. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. If you want someone to care about the whole person, paying attention to your acute and chronic issues, this is not the person you want to go to.
