A Passion for Perfection

Dr. Earl S. Golightly

I was called to be a physician at age five. Henceforth, our Heavenly Father has been perfecting my knowledge and surgical technique to bring His healing for my patients. His grace furthered my training with the world’s most prominent allergists and sinus surgeons and gave me a passion for Cosmetic Surgery which is integral to ENT Specialty training.

He molded my aesthetic perspective with the study of painting and sculpture in the major art galleries of Europe and England. Advanced study of facial muscles, structure and the latest surgical techniques of facial rejuvenation bring a complete service for individualized care.

I am not perfect but perfection of your renovation and transformation is my passion. The latest renovation and revitalization techniques offer immediate lasting results with no downtime.

Assistant Allergist

With 22 years experience working in Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat offices here in Griffin, I came to work as office manager for Dr. Golightly in December 1990. 21 years later, I retired to spend time helping my husband with his volunteer work at our local church. Then the opportunity arose that I could come back to work as an assistant in Dr. Golightly's allergy department, part-time, which was such a blessing to be able to once again see everyone that had become such a part of my life. I thank Dr. Golightly and his family for being such a vital part of the medical community of Griffin.
