Testimonial

Excellent service. Caring staff and Dr. Bergstein actually called to give me the positive news on my lab result. I had gone for an office procedure to have a growth removed from my nose. He is recommended.

Great service. Excellent human relations and he actually calls to explain your result after a lab work, even if just to tell you the good news.

I met Dr Bergstein the day after Thanksgiving after having suffered recurring nosebleeds. He was the on call physician and luckily for me, he met me in the ER and treated my nosebleed. He explained what he was going to do and what could be expected. And, he followed up by phone to see how I was doing. This kind of attention is unheard of today, but went a long way to making me feel that my situation mattered to him and that I'm not just a number. He is knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I was so frightened about what was happening, but Dr. Bergstein was able to keep me calm and informed. His office staff in both the Sleepy Hollow and Yorktown offices are attentive and so helpful. Thank you Dr. Bergstein!

Dr. Bergstein is personable certainly, but most important he is very smart, and takes care of everything pertaining to the complaint you have. He makes it clear, uses all the tools at his disposal, and you always get better fast.

12/05/2017 Anonymous Author from RateMDs

Dr. Bergstein is smart, has all the tools to give a complete visit...ears, nose, throat problems. He cares about his patients, but to me his smarts are why I would recommend him to anyone who has a problem .

Dr.Bergstein personifies what a great doctor should be: smart, empathetic, current on treatment methods.

Dr. Bergstein is a skilled and caring human being. He performed surgery on my daughter very recently and all could not have gone nicer. Dr. Bergstein has made this difficult journey that my daughter had endured a lot smoother. He is a good man, a fantastic doctor and I feel very fortunate to have come to ask him for help. No one is more precious than my children and I trusted him with my daughter. Thank you Dr. Bergstein. Manigeh Van Derveer

I have been a patient of Dr. Bergstein for over 17 years. After getting a misdiagnosis for 4 years from a dermatologist, Dr. Bergstein was the one who diagnosed what another doctor called a cyst to a tumor. Needless to say as a young mom I was overwhelmed with stress after an MRI confirmed. As competent as a doctor, he sent me to the best surgeon in NYC who dealt with this kind of tumor often. All turned out well and healed quickly. I have referred many patients and will continue to recommend.

I am continually impressed that Dr. Bergstein's assistant calls me to confirm that my prescriptions were renewed with my pharmacy - no other doctor's office does that. WOW!

11/08/2017 Anonymous Author from Vitals

I went to 6 ENT specialist before I chose Dr. Bergstein. I am a singer who had a deviated septum. From the moment he walked in I felt like he was the perfect one. He made me feel very comfortable and fixed my deviated septum so now I can breath and my singing is the best it has ever been. He is by far the best surgeon I have ever seen. Extremely professional and also the only doctor I would ever suggest anyone to go to who needs help with ENT. Thank you for changing my life for the better.

My 18 year old son recently broke his nose playing baseball. Thank goodness a family member referred us to Dr Bergstein. He was just wonderful. He saw my son on a Wednesday and since time is of the essence in an injury such as this, Dr Bergstein made time in his schedule to perform surgery the following day. He put my son and this nervous Mother at ease. Wonderful bedside manner as well. I can't say enough how pleased we are with Dr Bergstein. My son is a week post op and looks fantastic!

10/19/2017 Trisha DiMarzo from Healthgrades

Great doctor, perhaps the best I have ever met: he performed surgery on me and on my son. His staff, especially Stephanie Griffith in Yorktown, is to be commended.

11 reviews 5.0 star rating 7/17/2017 Dr. M. Bergstein is amazing! I went to him due to recurring sinus infections, constant sinus headaches and inability to breath. He was attentive listening to all of my concerns. He spent time with me and I never felt rushed. I ended up having sinus surgery. It has changed my life! I am sleeping, better, I can breath and smell. The staff in the office was lovely and accommodating. I really felt special when I was given the direct line to the doctor. It gave me the confidence and security I needed after the surgery. A friend had recommended I go there because she had such a wonderful experience. I am so glad I listened to her; I highly recommend!

Dr. Bergstein treated my son for a chronic sinus infection. Ultimately my son had to undergo surgery to "fix" the problem. Throughout the entire process, Dr. Bergstein was thorough, compassionate, accommodating and informative. He took time to explain all of the information and answered all questions in an easy to understand manner. He made himself available to my son and my son felt confident that all of his concerns were being addressed. We highly recommend Dr. Bergstein.

Very High. Dr. Bergstein took excellent care of me before and after my surgery. I am very confident in him and I know that he will continue to help me in the future. He seems concerned about my health and progress and has made himself available even in off hours. His response to phone calls I've made is very quick and I appreciate that knowing how busy his day is. Very glad that I have him as my doctor.

Terrible bedside manner. Very arrogant . Would not trust his decision making.

03/10/2017 Anonymous Author from RateMDs

Dr. Bergstein is our family ENT and recently performed surgery on my 4 year old daughter, who needed tubes in her ears and her adenoids removed. He was not only a very skilled doctor, but made himself very available to answer all of our questions and concerns - and never made us feel as if we were a bother. He was patient and helpful. His bedside manner and interpersonal style is very relaxed and personable, and we all feel he cares about our care and how we are doing in general. Dr. Bergstein helped make my daughter quite comfortable on the day of the surgery and she was not nervous in the least. He is a "human" doctor - who treats us with the respect we deserve as patients - and demonstrates a great deal of kindness and heart. We are truly happy to have Dr. Bergstein as our family ENT.

I have been going to this practice for years and have always felt-well treated.  The doctors all take their time (that may be why they often run behind), and get the correct prognosis and remedy.  On my last visit, I thought I had an ear ache, turns out it was TMJ.  Dr. Bergstein gave me some corrective measures and my TMJ is better!

Dr. Bergstein is a great guy and a fabulous doctor. I have had problems with my sinuses since I was young, and he's the first doctor (and I have been to plenty) who actually helped me. He has an excellent staff, and your waiting time in his office is rarely more than a few minutes

Over the last two years, it has been a pleasure to be patients by Dr. Michael Bergstein. Dr. Bergstein has distinguished himself to be a brilliant expert in his field. I have always found his assessments and care to be on the mark for patients of all ages (both for children and adults). Dr. Bergstein's expertise and knowledge coupled with his sensitivity and dedication to his patients is laudable. He recently performed nasal surgery on my son and the results could not have been "more perfect". My child is breathing better and feels "a million times" better. I would not want to use any other physician to treat my family!

Dr. Bergstein is a highly qualified and dedicated physician. He recently performed surgery on my child and did a superb job on his deviated septum. In addition, he was extremely caring and answered all of our questions with utmost patience and professionalism. We traveled from a different area to see him and it was well worth it. I would highly recommend Dr. Bergstein.

All I can say is EXCELLENT doctor. I have been Dr. Bergsteins patient for 2 years. A very professional and prompt Doctor. Very alert and attentive. Took good care of me.
