Armin Mechkat, M.D., is an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist from Hamburg. A son of Persian immigrants, he grew up in Hummelsbüttel and completed his medical studies and training at various institutions between the Alster and Elbe rivers, such as the AK St. Georg and the military hospital in Wandsbek. Since starting Hanse HNO in 2014, his patients have benefited from his invaluable outpatient and clinical experiences gained as an ENT specialist (Facharzt) at the Asklepios Gesundheitszentrum Hamburg-Bergedorf and as an attending physician (Oberarzt) at the Klinikum Frankfurt-Hoechst. Additionally, the father of two is certified by the Ärztekammer Hamburg as allergist and physician for voice and speech disorders. He can conduct consultations in Farsi (Iranian) or English if needed.

Michael Passarge, M.D.

Mr. Passarge has two children and was raised in Lübeck. After his medical training in Leipzig and Mainz he moved back to the north. During and after his specialisation in the St. Georg hospital, the medical doctor has gained experience in all areas of ear, nose and throat medicine. The ENT expert is very happy to examine and consult his patients in English. As an expert for sleep medicine, he has focused on the diagnosis and treatment of sleep-related breathing disorders, such as snoring and sleep apnea. He joined our Hanse HNO team in may 2022.

Prof. Dr. med. Wolfgang Kehrl, M.D.

Wolfgang Kehrl studied human medicine at the University of Hamburg. His career as an ENT doctor started in 1983 as a scientific assistant at the University Hospital Eppendorf. In the following years he worked his way up to senior physician at the UKE. From 1999 to 2019 he worked as ENT chief physician at the Marien Hospital in Hamburg. As an experienced doctor and surgeon, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Kehrl has enriched Hanse ENT ever since.


We care for you

General and pediatric ear, nose and throat care

From tonsillitis to tinnitus, dizziness to hoarseness, or the fitting of a hearing aid, there are numerous reasons for a visit to the ENT specialist and we offer a broad spectrum of ENT services.

Voice and speech disorders

Speech development disorders in children need to be diagnosed and treated early. We love taking care of our little patients and, with the help of our tests, will determine the best treatment options for your child.


Allergies can appear at any stage in life and can range from sneezing to severe asthma. When caught early, treatment cannot only alleviate symptoms but also prevent allergies from becoming more severe.

Sleep-disordered breathing

Snoring cannot only be bothersome, but also a sign of a serious disease called obstructive sleep apnea syndrome.

Aesthetic medicine

Good health and an attractive appearance go hand in hand for many patients.

In- and outpatient surgeries

Sometimes surgery is inevitable. We perform common operations for adults and children and are happy to provide second opinions for procedures recommended by other physicians.


For press inquiries, please call 040 69656101 or contact us per email

Armin Mechkat, M.D., is happy to assist journalists as an expert in ear, nose and throat and aesthetic medicines. In addition to contributions to professional medical publications, he is able to clearly communicate complex medical information in a manner easily understood by the general public in print TV, radio and online media.
