Dr. An, Michelle and the entire staff are very professional and top notch. I was experiencing problems for over a year and a half going to a local practitioner when I decided to make an appointment with Ent of Georgia South. Upon arrival, they were very prompt and courteous, helped with the paperwork and in five minutes. Dr. An said I had tonsil cancer and a tumor that was causing all my problems. I was set up immediately for a biopsy and within days, I was headed to an oncologist and radiologist with biopsy news and a course of action. Dr. An and the entire staff have been there through the entire ordeal. I still see him every two months and after review of my PET scans by the radiologist and oncologist I still have him review and give his opinion. I trust them totally. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a tried and true doctor and support staff. 10 stars is more like it.
