Nice lady, but horrible wait time. They told me to be there early and I still didn’t get in to a room until 30 minutes after my appointment. Then I had to wait even more time for her to even seeme. She talked to me for 5 minutes and was done. I tried asking questions, but she was already out the door.

Dr. Ingley seemed a bit hurried each time I saw her. Her bedside manner is quite business-like and straight to the point. She didn't exhibit a lot of understanding. She gave me a diagnosis, but when I was still having issuesafter several weeks, she seemed a bit annoyed by it and was quite ready to refer me to someone else.

Great doctor, but lots of patients. I feel like I never got to spend more than about 15 minutes with her. She did surgery on my septum to correct it and i've been feeling great since then. She definitely knows what shes doing. I always felt comfortable.

I am actuallyexcited about my surgery with Dr. Ingley. Don't know many doctors who make you excited about having surgery but she did it!

I will not go back to this doctor ever. A doctor who does not know the history of a patient and trying to diagnose? Who is more interested in making money than taking interst in the patient health. Sorry really abad experience. Stay away from these kinds of doctors

Avani was very pleasant, but running behind. My appointment was at 8:30 am. I arrived at 8:15 am. Filled out a mountain of paperwork. Didn't see the doctor until 9:15 am. The doctor visit was lightning fast. It was obvious shewas behind on her rounds and treated me as such. My visit wasn't that positive. I'm sure she is an excellent doctor, but I won't be going back.

Dr. Ingley was fantastic. She is very personable, professional, and thorough. However, I was very frustrated with my wait time. My appointment was set for 10:00, and I arrived just before that. As a new patient, I expected some paperwork, soI figured I wouldn't be taken back right away. (The paperwork was finished and turned in- about 5 minutes tops.) But I was not anticipating waiting for over an hour. I would have walked out, had I not been in dire need of professional care. I was never offered an explanation for my excessive wait, nor did anyone even acknowledge the inconvenience. I made up my mind to never return before the doctor saw me, but Dr. Ingley was so wonderful and helpful that I'll give that office one more chance. She takes patients in Marietta; I'll consider going there to see her if I must. I can't stress enough how happy I am with her professional care. My frustration is only due to the excessively long wait.

After seeing 5 different doctors about my ear in the past few months, this has by far been the best appt. She actually listened to what I had to say, was always pleasant and smiling and was extremely comforting- as adoctor should be. The only issue I had was the Suite # was wrong from what ZocDoc has, but it was just next door so no big deal. I will be returning to this doctor again and I am very well pleased with my first ZocDoc usage and will use again. Thank you for the service.

The only reason I marked wait time (less than 30) was due to Dr. Ingley being in surgery and it was running late. Dr. Ingley was excellent! I told her what was going on with my ear and she diagnosed myproblem and gave me a solution in a short time. I was so excited and appreciative! I could hear again! Hallelujah! Dr. Ingley has a wonderful "bedside manner" and speaks to you like you are a real human being and she "hears" what you are saying to her. My experience with this practice and especially Dr. Ingley was extraordinary!! I would highly recommend her.
