Dr. Goco corrected a sinus problem I suffered from my entire life, and I am 66 years old! It was a new, same-day surgery called sinuplasty, performed in his office operating room. He and his entire staff are kind, attentive, and experts in their field. I can't say enough good things about them. And 10 months out of this procedure, I can say with confidence that it was 100% successful!

I came to Middle Tennessee Ear Nose and Throat by referral. I have seen many doctors over the years in search of relief from my constant sinus infections. It didn't help that I have an immune deficiency either. Every doctor told me that I had no allergies and that surgery wouldn't help. Antibiotics became all too commonplace. Finally I ended up in front of Dr. Paul E. Goco. His team listened and understood my ever growing frustration and it was decided i was a good candidate for surgery. I was s

I was told for 15 yrs that I was allergic to mold and mildew! My allergist would give me 2 infection shots every month! Then It got to be every 2 weeks. She sent me to a local E.N.T. specialist. All he wanted was get me off Afrin. Months later, I so an ad on TV for Murfreesboro Sinus Center. I called an made an appt. with Dr Goco. That was the best move I ever made! He found that I a bigger problem with acid reflex than I did with mold and mildew. I have gone over 2 months without a shot!

Dr. Goco had to perform a septoplasty, turbinate reduction, complete ethmoid, bilateral maxillary antrostomy, frontal sinus, sphenoid sinus, and fusion. I woke up feeling so much better from surgery and followed closely his post op procedures to help recover. I am so grateful that he listened to my concerns. I had been sick for several months and my primary care doctor could not find the source. Dr. Goco examined, listened, and acted quickly. Thanks to Dr. Goco I am on the road to heath!

If I could give Dr Goco a zero I would.I got a qtip forcefully lodged in my hear by hitting it with my shoulder.The ER referred me to Dr Goco as the ENT doctor to follow up with.My ear is bleeding again,so I called Dr Goco's answering service.I waiting more than an hour-no response.When I called back they called Dr Goco who said he refused to return the call and for me to call my regular ENT. The message was 'my ear was actively bleeding'.You are the doctor I was referred too.No care, no concern

Yes. I've been seeing Dr. GOCO for about 3 months now. He is a very caring doctor that wants to help me get better.. what I love most is that he has time to talk to me and go over my concerns. Even though he's busy. He takes time for me.. not like some who herd you through,your appt.. to get on to the next patient. Money, money ,money...I am happy with the results he's helped me achieve...He also has a welcoming staff...I'm so thankful he was recommended to me by,a friend fried....

For many years, I experienced extreme difficulty in breathing. Meds had little to no affect. A friend referred me to Dr. Goco. He explained my options clearly and in terms that I could easily understand. Ultimately, Dr. Goco performed a Balloon Sinuplasty and Turbinate Reduction procedure on me in his office. I experienced no pain or discomfort, and the relief was immediate. I regret that I had not done the procedure years previously. Highly recommend. GREAT EXPERIENCE.

I typically see Dr. Goco for cosmetic reasons, but he recently removed a lesion that turned out to be a basal cell carcinoma. I was very nervous because it was on my face and I'm getting married in the near future! After 8 stitches, I just knew I would look like the bride of Frankenstein, but HE DID AN AWESOME JOB! Within 1 week my scar is practically GONE! Thank You Dr. Goco ??

All my life I have had headaches chronic sinus problems with blinding headaches. Dr Goco was already treating me for acid reflux that he discovered I had when I first went to see him because I had a lump in my neck. As a former smoker I take any anomalies in my head and neck area very seriously and sought the expertise of ENT. When Dr Goco suggested balloon surgery for my sinuses I was skeptical that it would cure me. It has been two months and it is a miracle !! No more headaches!!

3 doctors ignored my veritigo,nosebleeds,headaches&chronic sinus infections.They treated the sinus infection & told me the vertigo&headaches were migraines.I finally found Dr Goco(my 2nd ENT).He listened to me&said I had a deviated septum&needed a balloon surgery on my sinuses.He fixed my septum,removed some sinus tissue&now I can breathe.I didn't realize how blocked my left nostril was.It has been 2 months since my surgery&I have not had vertigo or headaches. FINALLY someone listened.
