Testimonial

I highly recommend Dr. Rechtweg- he's a PHENOMENAL doctor. I have recently undergone my first (and hopefully last) surgery and he made the experience as relaxing and comfortable as possible. Definitely consider visiting him if you like a Dr. with a great sense of humor- he always manages to crack some pretty funny jokes! Overall, Dr. Rechtweg has provided me with exceptional care. I appreciate how friendly, knowledgable, and comforting he is towards his patients! 10/10 would recommend.

dr. retchweg is nice although there was a confusion in their office during the time of our visit with whom the Allergist came to see us first but very politely apologize for the mistake. and because of that, our appointment of 10am took us so long to be seen by the doctor. other than that, the visit was satisfying.

I was very pleased. He was extremely professional and he explained everything to me, so that I could understand what he was doing and to help me with my situation. Very happy that I went to him, will continue to see him as my doctor.

Great office! Friendly staff.

09/20/2017 Jhavina C. from ZocDoc

The Dr. Is very professional and took his time. The staff is efficient and friendly. iPads are used to get your information which I liked. Once I filled out my information I only waited a minute or two until I was called. Overall it was a very positive experience.

Dr. Rechtweg is by far the most funniest, compassionate, thorough, and professional ENT doctor I've seen thus far!

08/30/2017 Serena D. from ZocDoc

Just saw Dr. Rechtweg again today. After multiple misdiagnoses from other doctors, he correctly diagnosed me with benign positional vertigo and got me into the right treatment and on the road to health. My whole family comes to his office for treatment of their ENT issues. We love him, his bedside manner, his patience, and his weird sense of humor.

I wish the service receive from the front desk was better. They ignore you until you have to keep asking for help over and over.

06/14/2017 a Verified Patient from ZocDoc

Smart and nice guy.

06/13/2017 Rohan S. from ZocDoc

Other then the wait in the office, the overall experience was great.

Very nice doctor he doesn't rush u out

04/20/2017 Gracieuse F. from ZocDoc

Dr. Rechtweg was very professional and took his time in answering all my questions. I would highly recommend him.

04/13/2017 Lawrence Cunningham from Google

I scheduled on 24 hours notice, so I was OK with a wait. The office is efficient but busy. If you want a boutique provider, this isn't it. But the automation for a first-time visit was pretty good (though only part of the form gets filled out on Zocdoc).

04/12/2017 Mark U. from ZocDoc

A Very professional clinic, from the receptionist to the Dr assistant. It was a good experience

04/06/2017 Jessy T. from ZocDoc

The reception is quick and efficient and easily managed through iPad checkin portals. Dr Rechtweg is knowledgeable with a friendly bed side manner. An overall good experience.

04/04/2017 Brian T. from ZocDoc

Very informative and thorough. Very good bedside manner.

03/26/2017 Sherry Z. from ZocDoc

Doctor Jay Rechtweg is a truly amazing Doctor. He is compassionate and friendly during office visits and on the phone. His advice for both me and my children has always been extremely knowledgeable and true. He has a great bedside manner. He has treated by 11 year old son for complex ear infections and has help diagnosed me with sleep Apnea. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT Doctor in Long Island.

Doctor Jay Rechtweg has been an amazing doctor to me and my family. I know that I am cared for by the way he goes beyond the call of duty. He also really helps me understand what is happening and what I can do to help participate in my recovery, rather than just order a pill.

10/02/2014 Patient from Vitals.com

I would highly recommended Dr. Rechtweg. After seeing many ENT Drs. with no results, one trip to his office was able to solve my problems.

04/25/2014 Patient from vitals.com

Dr. Rechtweg is the best ENT I have ever seen. His staff and office are wonderful. I have seen many doctors over the years and he has displayed more time and patience with me than anyone else. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to see an ENT.

02/04/2014 Patient from yelp.com

Dr. Rechtweg spent a significant amount of time with me and helped me get over my sinus problems. I had seen many doctors over the years and he is the best. I feel I am in good hands with him and his office.

02/04/2014 Patient from vitals.com

Dr. Rechtweg really listened to my concerns and did a very thorough exam of my left ear and throat--two of my main concerns. His scoping technique was extremely gentle and quick and I liked the way he was confident in his abilities. He was very professional and caring in his approach and fully explained his findings and recommendations. I never felt rushed. He is a good problem-solver and takes a conservative approach rather than rushing into more drastic steps/procedures that could be costly and unnecessary. The Garden City office is immaculate and the staff (front desk & nurses) is courteous and friendly. I would definitely recommend Dr. Rechtweg as well as ENT & Allergy Associates for any of your otolaryngology or allergy needs.

10/31/2013 Patient from vitals.com

Great doctor. Excellent bed side manner. Very knowledgeable. Easy to get in touch with. Gives the patient all the time they need. Would definitely recommend him.

10/02/2013 Patient from yelp.com

Really great funny knows what hes talking about. Took out my tonsils but tried other methods to reduce tonsillitis before doing surgery. His staff and himself are great. :)

07/29/2011 Patient from ratemds.com

Actually took the time to talk to me about my chronic runny nose. Thank you! No one else has taken the time for me. I will recommend you to my friends.

05/16/2011

Dr. Rechtweg has been treating my extended family for many years. On their recommendation I went to see him for a few issues that were bothering me. He was patient and listened to my concerns explained everything he was doing and never once mentioned surgery which is what I expected as a surgeon he'd immediately jump to! Now I know why my family only wants to go see him when something is wrong.

02/07/2011 Patient from Levittown

Dr. Rechtweg is always on time. I have never waited for more than 5 minutes for my appointment. He has Saturday and late hours every week and he helped me with my sinus issues. Knowing I also have Crohn's disease he has always prescribed me medicine that would not upset my Crohn's or counter act med's I take daily. I higly recommend him.
