Our Patient Testimonials:

Dr. Neumann is so gentle and actually listens to his patients

He has been very helpful so far and I would recommend Advanced ENT to anyone. When I first began seeing Dr. Neumann my sinuses were messed up to the point I couldn’t smell anything or taste what I ate or drank. Since we started weekly treatments it has been amazing to smell and taste my food again. I am beyond happy with his services and forever grateful. Thank you, Dr. Neumann.”

Dr. K is the nicest doctor I’ve ever been seen by.

I can’t say it enough, but he really is. Not only is he super nice and friendly but his knowledge and education of ENT are off the charts. The man is a true asset to his profession and Floyd County! Every assistant that I have talked with and dealt with in his office is exactly the same as him! Friendly and very thorough to make sure you understand everything before you leave the office! Again my overall rating of this is a five but only because it didn’t allow me to give a higher rating. I couldn’t be more pleased with my visit!”

…they got me in and out quickly!

“Called in for an appt and the lady that I spoke with was just so nice and comforting. When I came to the office, the ladies in the office were so polite and professional!!! I was called back to see Dr. Hay in a short period and she examined my ear and explained everything and what I needed to do! I could not say enough about how I was treated and how they got me in and out quickly! Thank you”

Very pleased with every step of the process

The ladies at registration were very friendly and helpful! Had my baby 7 month old there for allergy testing and the waiting room had several people in it. I voiced that I didn’t want to have a baby around so many people and they took him right back to a room. The doctor was very informative and actually listened and asked my opinions on things and what I was comfortable with her doing. Very happy with everyone and the service! Definitely found our new allergy dr.”


“Dr. Abbas did a cosmetic procedure for me a while back. I was nervous, but he was patient with me and took the time to explain everything, step by step. After my procedure, he followed up with me numerous times. I am very pleased with the results. His gentle, skilled touch gave me back my self-confidence. HUGE RECOMMENDATION for Dr. Abbas!”

Dr. Yantis is a life saver!

He’s both professional and courteous and I wouldn’t know what to do without him. I see him once a year and I probably will until he retires! But don’t get any ideas about retiring anytime soon Dr. Yantis….I’m gonna need ya!”

Dr. Aaron Smith and the assistant that day were absolutely amazing

with our 3 day old son! Our son was tongue tied and having trouble nursing. Him and his assistant were very caring and kind to our situation considering we were just discharged from the hospital with our newborn. It was a simple quick procedure but for us first time parents, it was tough. They made us feel very comfortable and even let us stay in the room to nurse our son after the procedure (it was at the end of the day). Everyone was very caring, kind and compassionate. Highly recommend!!!”

Dr. Kakarlapudi’s attention to detail will probably save my life.

“Went to see Dr. Kakarlapudi about a sinus issue. During his exam, he noticed what he suspected was cancer on my tonsil. Turns out it is. I had no symptoms. He caught it barely in stage two. We start cancer treatment Monday. His attention to detail will probably save my life.”

Dr. Neumann takes his time

with you and makes sure all your questions are answered. I never feel rushed and when I leave I know I got the best care. I would not go anywhere else.”

Dr. Forwith is the first doctor with a treatment that was for me…

“I’ve been dealing with benign thyroid goiters for twenty-two years. Dr. Forwith is the first doctor with a treatment that was, for me, the only real option. I’m feeling better and have more energy. My results are better than expected. Dr. Forwith is also a great teacher. He explains everything clearly. I’m so glad I crossed his path.”

Dr. Allison is great!!

I never feel rushed at my appointment. He is a great listener!! He realizes I am on a fixed income and takes that into consideration when prescribing me medications. His nurse is really sweet and returns my calls in a timely manner. I started with this doctor years ago and never left dissatisfied. Dr. Allison and his nurse make me feel like family.”

What a great staff!

My family Doctor recommended Advanced ENT & Allergy. I chose the location on Angie’s Way in Louisville, Since I live in Cincinnati Ohio. I am so happy with my decision. The staff was phenomenal, very patient, and explained what they’re doing along the way. I really felt I was the most important patient of the day. Five stars all the way for Dr. Gould and his staff.”

Nicole has worked with me for months

to get my thyroid regulated! She finally found the right dosage and I’m doing great. The staff is wonderful.”

I left the doctor’s office feeling very hopeful…

that I will finally get my allergies under control…without taking so many allergy meds.”

I had cancer, he found it, and saved my life.

“I’ve known Dr. Hodge for over 7 years. I enjoy my visits with him. I had cancer, he found it, and saved my life. I don’t need to go back, but I do every year. Thank you Dr. Hodge!”

Dr. Shotts changed my life.

I have never breathed and smelled so clearly. I feel like he truly wants to help and make a difference for his patients. He always has my back; and my ears, nose, and throat.”

Dr. Smith is a very professional doctor.

Great bedside manner. He went straight to the problem and addressed it. He performed a septoplasty, graph, and reduced my turbinates. I can finally breathe easier–from both nostrils. I crushed my nose in a car wreck and haven’t been able to breathe from my nose since. Dr. Smith fixed all the issues and I woke up breathing better and I had splints in both sides. Kudos!”

The care my son received from Dr. Kenneth Hodge was exceptional.

He listened attentively to my concerns and provided personalized treatment that yielded positive results. The entire team at the clinic displayed a high level of professionalism and made me feel comfortable throughout my visit. My son had almost 3 years of nasal congestion and we did everything we could but could not solve his nasal congestion problem. So, when we met first time Dr. Kenneth Hodge, with in a short time, we got the best results. He did surgery for my son. Right away he felt so good. Thank you so much from our family. We really thank the entire team for the best care that was given to us and I recommend everyone to visit this facility and meet Dr. Kenneth Hodge.

With the highest trust.”

Dr. Gerace is wonderful.

She listens to the patient and spends time to get to the root of the problem. I would highly recommend her.”

Dr. Ingram is an amazing ENT!

I don’t have enough words to describe how incredible she is. She’s very caring and knowledgeable about all things related to her scope of practice. She has a great bedside manner and is a great listener! She has helped with my monthly sinus infections by getting to the bottom of why I had them so frequently and took care of the problem. I went from having to take antibiotics every 3-4 weeks to less than yearly for sinus infections. If you need an ENT, do yourself a favor and go see her.”
