Waited almost 1 hr. every visit. Went round 4 x's with office and rx co. to get script filled right. Phone messages never returned.. Billing done incorrectly. Front desk said "I didn't do it so it is not my fault" and never apologized for anything. FInal straw Dr. Kowal said "remember we talked all about this at your last visit?" and I had never been seen by him before. He doesn't even consult your chart or show you your scans to show what your issue really is that needs to be fixed.

Dr Kowal took very good care of both my son and daughter through routine visits and a few surgeries. They are now 16 years old and 20 years old! I'm from Peachtree City as well ,,,,in Georgia and really do miss this Dr because now I have sleep apena and some other health problems. Why would I want another ENT!??? He is the best and I trusted him with my babies!!! When considering Dr Kowal as your ENT/specialist, ,,,,,,,you have the best!!! Great Dr!!!

My experience went well. The referring doctor highly recommended Dr. Kowal on Friday but thought I might not be seen quickly since he is very busy. I called on Monday morning concerning an urgent matter and was seen as a new patient on Tuesday afternoon. The wait was good and the staff were friendly. He put me at ease; was friendly; and very professional. His assistant was also professional and nice. He clearly explained my diagnosis along with next steps which greatly reduce my anxiety.
