Dr. Dolitsky is a great doctor very professional and knowlegable. Was very highly recommended by many people. His staff was just as pleasant.

Dr. Dolitsky did a terrific job for my 6 year old re: adenoid and tonsil removal. She was eating pasta that night and never took pain meds after returning home from the surgery. I talked to lots of others including ENTs and read many blog postings so I didn't expect such quick recovery. I know it's due to his skill. He's also great in terms of care and follow up. He's extremely professional and patient with questions. The surgery started right on time. I can't say enough and I am a very tough customer (did a lot of research and got 3 opinions).
This doctor exceeded all of my expectations. He removed adenoids and inserted ear tubes for my 2 year old daughter. Today is the day after the surgery and my daughter is feeling fine and I've noticed an improvement in her speech already. I am very impressed with the professionalism and character of this doctor.
