Dr. James Orr, MD
Doctor Orr became Board Certified in Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery, on March 7, 1988 – his 34th birthday. Dr. Orr became Board Certified in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in the first year the exam was administered. The exam was given in 1989 and the first certificates presented in February of 1991 after two years of required surgical experience was submitted and approved. Dr. Orr was actually one of the first three Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeons in Georgia. The other two were Drs. William Silver and Wallace Dyer. Doctor Orr joined The Emory Clinic in Atlanta, GA. in 1989 and practiced there almost 10 years. While there, he was an Assistant Professor of Surgery, Department of Otolaryngology in the Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Orr was admitted as a full Fellow of the American College of Surgeons in 1991. This is a credential that few practicing otolaryngologist seek, as it requires a stringent peer review process that spans over two years. Doctor Orr joined ENT of GA, in 1998, and became their Medical Director, a position he still holds today. Since joining ENT of Georgia, he has been an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Surgery in the Emory University School of Medicine, and still teaches residents today. Doctor Orr was the first Emory otolaryngologist to perform Image-Guided Sinus Surgery in 1992 and he was the first Emory otolaryngologist to perform Balloon Sinuplasty in 2005. Doctor Orr was Chief of Otolaryngology at Emory University Hospital Midtown (EUHM - formally known as Crawford Long Hospital) for 17 years and served as President of the Hospital Medical Staff from 2014-2015. Doctor Orr services his patients through his office at 550 Peachtree Street, where he has an in-office Balloon Sinuplasty Suite for simple procedures and utilizes EUHM for more complex procedures that require anesthesia services.
