Dr. Ofer Jacobowitz was very knowledgeable and was extremely nice!

Both of my sons have had their tonsils and adenoids removed by Dr. Rhee. He explains everything, answers all questions and encourages them to be asked, and places both parents and children at ease. His staff is wonderful and a pleasure to deal with as well. I can't say enough good things about him and the way our children were treated; how many doctors would call on a SUNDAY day off to inquire how a child was feeling from a surgery two days before? That's what you can expect from Dr. Rhee.

I had an ear problem and was looking for an ear specialist online. I checked on Yelp and saw that Dr. Portnoy has a couple of five stars reviews, I was very happy that I was able to make an appointment in the same day. Dr. Portnoy is very professional and also very compassionate which is very important to me. He took his time and answer every question that I had. His staff was nice as well. I was very happy with the treatment and would highly recommend him.

Our whole family visits Dr. Mithani for our allergies now. Dr. Mithani is very knowledgeable about her field and very helpful. She and the whole staff are friendly and personable and really make us feel like family when we go there. The front desk staff, the allergy nurses Roshni and Maria, and Dr. Mithani herself are always happy to see us and make our visits helpful and productive, whether it's for weekly allergy shots or our checkups.

I was diagnosed with Shingles on my face and ear and Dr. Keenan was able to see me within an hour of being diagnosed. She was professional, compassionate and helpful in trying to secure a primary healthcare provider since I am new to NYC.

Dr. Godwin was wonderful. He took care of my problem. I highly recommend him.

After 3 visits to urgent care, 2 prescribing antibiotics for a sinus infectionand the last diagnosing me with allergies, I had been suffering for 2 months. I decided that since I was awake another night, I would call a specialist. I was able to get an appointment same day with Dr. Godin and without a physician referral. He sat and asked me questions and checked my nose & throat and based on my symptoms, diagnosed me with a type of reflux called LPR. He put me on a pill for a few weeks and I feel great. He was friendly and polite. I am so glad I found him. I have been to his office twice and the wait was not long, even as a new patient. I will continue to see him if I have any flare ups.

Friendly and knowledgeable.

I suffered from allergies of all types for over 10 years and spent too much money on pills and sprays that I took daily. After meeting with Dr. Safier back in September, he recommended weekly injections after a series of tests to determine exactly what I am allergic to. I am almost done and feel so much better. I feel free from the daily drugs and I've saved $$$$$$! The staff there is amazing and I'm in and out in 10 minutes!!! Thanks for changing my life Dr. Safier and staff!

Dr. Portnoy is one of the finest doctors I have ever seen. He is not only very knowledgeable but a caring, patient doctor as well. I never felt rushed or unimportant...he takes the time to sit and listen to all of the issues and explains everything completely. The office staff is very courteous and helpful, one of the best doctor's offices I have experienced ever...would recommend to all!

I have been a patient of Dr. Palgon for years and have always been extremely pleased. He is thorough, professional and conservative in his treatment plans. I have referred patients to him and will continue to do so.

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.

Very fine doctor. He seems confident and makes me feel I'm like I'm in good hands.

We had the best experience with Dr. Godin and staff when my 2 year old son had tubes placed in his ears. I could not have been happier with the medical expertise and attention we received; I highly recommend Dr. Godin and team!

Not only is Dr. Aviv a wonder doctor, but the book is as well. My husband has had trouble keeping his meals down for a couple of years. We went to a number of doctors and he had many procedures and then to Dr. Aviv. We live in Central Jersey so going to a New York doctor is a bit of a trip for seniors, but so well worth it. At the first visit Dr. Aviv told us about his book and gave us the diet sheet. We followed the diet through the menus and recipes in the book and within ten days my husband was able to eat in comfort. Within a month he had almost no problems with meals. Since I do the cooking in the home, it just meant that I had to alter my recipes a bit, but that was no problem. Everything was written out clearly and simply. We have gone back four times now to Dr. Aviv and it is a year and a half later and my husband rarely has problems anymore with meals. He can enjoy his food once again. We did and still do follow the expected foods that are allowed. At any rate, if you are or know someone who is a sufferer from acid indigestion, GERD, or some such issues, go to Dr. Aviv, you won't be sorry. Thank you Dr. Aviv. My husband can enjoy my cooking once more.

Always easy to obtain an appointment. Dr. Kase is excellent in maintaining my health. I have a weakness in my lungs and Dr. Kase checks me every 2 months to keep me in perfect health!

Dr. Leventhal treated me for a painful ear infection on the very same day that I was in such pain. He made a diagnosis, called in some prescriptions and reassured me that my infection was treatable. He also calmed my catastrophic thoughts and arranged for a follow up visit several days later. His treatment helped to start clearing the infection and pain in a few hours. His medical treatment and patient care are exceptional and very much appreciated. I highly recommend Dr. Leventhal!

Love this location and have been back a second time! Came here with some severe sinus congestion and knew something had to be up. One week prior I went to the local urgent care in Union Square and they gave me some crap that did NOT work and I felt worse and worse…I am SO HAPPY that I found Dr. Raithatha. He took his time in explaining what was happening with my nose and even showed me the video of how clogged and congested it was. He then explained in detail what medications I would need etc. etc. I was having some headaches afterwards and was able to call him afterwards for more questions and he was concerned and friendly…I am glad I found a great ear nose throat doctor for all of my sinus infections.
