I had the pleasure of shadowing Dr. Athavale for a few days, and I got to see him interact with dozens of patients. I can confidently say that Dr. Athavale is one of the most proficient and knowledgeable ENT physicians in the country. If you are looking for the best ENT care possible, you need look no further (especially if you are seeking care for sleep apnea). He is one of the only surgeons in GA qualified to implant the Inspire device. He and his staff are extremely courteous and helpful.

Dr. A is obviously a brilliant physician. However, he's abrupt and has no bedside manner. When dealing with head and neck cancers, a physician who is kind and who listens is critical.
Abrupt, rude, no follow-up, uncaring. Arrogant and narcissistic. Obviously knows his field, but terrible bedside manner. Highly not recommended.
