I went to Dr. Goco after I had broken my nose and 2 other Otolaringologists had turned me down for repair surgery as my case involved cartilage and they felt it was too complicated to correct. Dr. Goco not only repaired the injury but was able to straighten my nose back to normal. He is a very talented and caring physician and his staff are very nice as well. I would recommend him to anyone needing nose surgery, ever complex cases.

I had several sinus infections, didn’t know just how bad my sinuses were until Dr. Goco fixed all my issues. Including a deviated septum that I didn’t even know I had. Now, 3 months later no more snoring, my sleep apnea is gone and I can actually breathe through my nose.

When I saw Dr Goco, I had on gloves, a mask and a face shield. I told him I was a diabetic and I was extra cautious because of the coronavirus. He said it was political and it would be over after the election. I didn't respond because I was kind of shocked hearing this from a doctor. While he was reviewing my records he took off his mask and started talking to me and we were not 6ft. apart. I feel like he put my life in jeopardy by taking off his mask and talking to me when we have a pandemic and people with diabetes that get the virus are dying. Also, the lady at the front desk had her mask below her nose. I will not be going back to him.

Dr. GoCo is a very personable doctor. He seems to really care about his patients. The balloon sinus surgery I had done on all of my sinuses sure was a lot nicer than previous surgeries I have been through in the past. There is no packing and the healing process is so much better.

i have suffered with the effects from nasal drainage all my life! As a vocalist it has been devastating! I have seen many specialists across the country! I saw an add somewhere for Dr Goco and thought i would I would go see him! DR Goco Was very thorough in his examination and, in my opinion, asked questions of me go beyond what i had experienced from other specialists. He offered his diagnosis and remedy. I left his office not totally convinced we had the solution! much to my surprise and joy, after three days i had saw a vast improvement in my health. There are not enough words to express my gratitude for this healing experience! On my follow up visit i was so over joyed I couldn't wait to share with DR Goco how successful his treatment is! If you have any ENT issues i highly recommend seeing dr Goco. note: i just completed a recording session sat. at WISHBONE STUDIOS in Muscle Shoals

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!
