Dr. Michael J. Koriwchak received his medical degree from Duke University School of Medicine in 1988. He completed both his Internship in General Surgery and Residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Dr. Koriwchak continued at Vanderbilt for a fellowship in Laryngology and Care of the Professional Voice. He is board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.
Since moving to Atlanta in 1995, Dr. Koriwchak has built a thriving practice in Laryngology, Care of the Professional Voice, Thyroid/Parathyroid Surgery, Endoscopic Sinus Surgery and General Otolaryngology. Dr. Koriwchak has training and special interest in the care of the professional voice and occupational and medically based voice disorders. Many of his patients include people who depend on their voice for their careers, such as actors, singers, and teachers as well as the non-professional voice users.
Dr. Koriwchak has performed thousands of Thyroid, Parathyroid and Head and Neck Cancer Cases. Under Dr. Koriwchak's care, many operations that usually require a hospital stay can be done safely in our Otolaryngology Outpatient Surgery Center.
Using highly specialized equipment in his voice lab, Dr. Koriwchak can diagnose complicated voice and swallowing disorders in the convenience of his office. One test, video laryngeal stroboscopy, allows him to see the vocal cords when you speak so he can examine any changes that may account for hoarseness or persistent voice loss.
Dr. Koriwchak also helped design our electronic medical records system, which recently earned the e-Technology award from the Medical Association of Georgia.
Dr. Koriwchak is accepting new patients and welcomes most major insurance plans. He sees patients in the St. Joseph's office of ENT of Georgia.
