Went to dr hulka for a second opinion because i didn’t like the first dr i went to for my sons ear issues. He was leaps and bounds more compassionate and caring than the previous dr. He took his time, made me feel comfortable with asking all my questions, and gave me numerous options (not just “surgery would be best”). I’d highly recommend him.

Dr. Hulka is an outstanding doctor! Not only is he extremely intelligent, but also down-to-Earth and amazing with kids. He's kind and shows his sense of humor which really humanizes him and enhances the patient/doctor relationship. He goes above and beyond as a provider to make sure that parents are informed and he is available always; he can be counted on and he is trustworthy. I recommend him any chance I get! we feel so lucky that our daughter was referred to him; We are grateful for him!

We had a 2 year old with severe snoring and mouth breathing. Dr. Hulka suspected enlarged adenoids and sent us for a soft tissue x-ray for confirmation. He was great about presenting options and answering questions. We ultimately opted to have an adenoidectomy, which went very smoothly and recovery was easy and my 2 year old was back to his old self within 24 hours. His snoring has been completely resolved, he sleeps better at night, and is a much happier kid. We couldn't be more pleased.

Dr. Hulka recommended surgery as the first solution to my child's sleep apnea. I had to press for information and details about alternative options. His demeanor then became defensive and condescending as if I was out of place for asking questions. He recommended I get a second opinion, told me the front desk could assist me and then left the office. Not certain that the appointment was over because he exited so abruptly, I had to ask him if we were done. Not professional or compassionate.

About Me

Biography

Gregory F. Hulka, M.D. is a board-certified Otolaryngologist specializing in the treatment of  ear, nose and throat conditions of children.

He received his bachelors degree from Northwestern University and his medical degree from Duke University. He completed his residency at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a fellowship at University of Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.

His practice ranges from more common conditions such as chronic ear infections,tonsillitis and obstructive sleep apnea to the care of more complex medical problems requiring comprehensive, coordinated care with other pediatric specialists.

Surgical care ranges from PE tube placement, tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy to sinus surgery, neck masses and complex ear and airway procedures.

Dr. Hulka encompasses a conservative, integrated approach to caring for each child that includes understanding each problem from the parents', child's and other care provider's viewpoint and educating the family in order for them to make informed decisions they feel good about in regards to their child's care.

Prior to joining NCEENT, Dr. Hulka served as Associate Professor of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery at Duke Medical Center.  He now looks forward to caring for his patients at the North Durham Office and the Cary Office.
