Rude office staff.
in Milledgeville, GA |
Dr. was not concerned about reason for visit. Was very rude as to why I had made the appointment. He asked the nurse right outside the door why I was there. He did not want to do any treatment until I could no longer breath through my nose. I would not recommend this dr to anyone!

Dr. Lockhart is a very knowledgeable physician!! He is excellent with adults and children. My entire family and the majority of my friends use him. Dr. Lockhart is always on point with the diagnosis and an outstanding surgeon. Milledgeville is lucky to have him as an ENT! I am able to get appointments quickly with little waiting time at the office. The office is clean and the staff is beyond friendly and professional.

He did not listen and ignored what I was saying, trying to push antibiotics when I felt a more conservative approached was appropriate to reduce unnecessary antibiotic use. Multiple times he went off on tangent lectures about causes of sore throats, allergies and acid reflux when I was concerned about swelling in my lymph nodes, not allergies or a sore throat. I reminded him of this multiple times to no avail. Very unprofessional, he clearly didn't read my chart either. Staff also blew me off.
