What People Say About Dr. Roy Schottenfeld, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

On January 10 2019 I visited Dr Shottenfeld at Northfulton ENT's Cumming office. A specialist conducted a hearing test for me. She reviewed the report with me in detail such as the difference in hearing loss in both my ears, etc. I requested numerous times for this hearing report but never got it. Months later, I received a letter from Dr. Schottenfeld. The letter is amusing as well as indicative of what kind of business they run. This letter includes a short diagnostic description, irrelevant to the hearing report requested. His letter was dated Jan. 9, 2019. The date is before my first visit of his office (Jan.10). He might be a clairvoyant also, he diagnosed me the day before I arrived at his office! The letter was actually mailed on April 30, 2019 as postmark shows. His clinic held my hearing report for months and then Dr. Schottenfeld sent me a letter with a phony date showing that my request was fulfilled. Why? I still have not received the report that I requested.

Truly one of the few doctors I trust. Dr. Schottenfeld took care of my deviated septum and since then I (four years) I have not had any sinus infections. He is hilarious but also very thoughtful and reassuring. Go see him!

Dr. Schottenfeld is very caring and thorough. He listened to everything I had to say about my symptoms and he addressed every one of them. After the tests and an MRI he performed a sinus surgery on me and my whole life changed for the better since the surgery. I will recommend more than 100% anyone with sinus issues to go see Dr. Schottenfeld.
