I have been seeing Dr. Hekiert for the past couple of years and each time I go, I am treated as part of her family. Dr. Hekiert is very knowledgeable and accurate in diagnosis. She guided me through terrible sinus problems where she even called my home to see how I was feeling. In addition, she remembers everything I told her, even if it was 2 years ago. I have seen many ENTs in NJ and I usually do not recommend doctors; however, Dr. Hekiert is the best and I highly recommend her. The office staff is also extremely friendly and accommodating. For any ears, nose, and throat problems, your answers are here with Dr. Hekiert and her wonderful staff.

Dr. Anna was great, she took the appropriate amount of time with me and was very nice.

OMG....I love Dr. Hekiert. She has been a godsend for me. Started with her 2 years ago. I've been suffering since I was 4 years old from allergies, other sinus problems and recurring sinus infections, and at 59 years old, I was at my wits end. Had gone to other ENT's for treatment and even sinus surgery and got no relief. I was miserable. I saw Dr. Hekiert on my first visit. This has to be one of the best choices I ever made. She interviewed me for over 45 minutes before she even examined me. After several tests, including a CT of my skull/sinus', we met again to review all my test results. That meeting was life changing for me. I had had one of these tests going back many years ago, and surgery to "correct" the so called problem. Dr. Hekiert showed me the CT scan and showed/told me something my old ENT should have told me but didn't......that I had NO SINUS' in my forehead and had some malformations in the sinus' I have. She said she could correct the problem but first I'd have to go through a non surgical maintenance process to get the infections under control and get my sinus' healthy. The infections have decreased significantly. So far, so good. And surgery will happen when I choose. I have complete confidence in her and I highly recommend her to anyone who has sinus problems.

Dr. Messenger is a great doctor. He is very thorough, and is very compassionate. He takes his time with you and will answer as many questions you may have or are worried about. You leave his office with a sense of relief. Also his staff is very polite and you are seen on time.

The doctor did a thorough job and I am encouraged that I am now on the path to recovery!

I had chronic sinus infections for years and Dr. Fishman helped me become infection free and breath easier. ENT and Allergy is a great practice.

Dr. Messenger has treated me for frequent sinus infections. He also helped treat me while I was pregnant and was so helpful and caring. He truly wanted to make me feel better an I am so grateful for his help.

Dr. Bergstein repaired my deviated septum and removed all of the polyps and inflammation that I had in my sinuses. I am now able to breath through my nose again, after years of suffering. Friendly and professional staff too. Highly recommend.

Dr. Aronzon was smart, patient, professional and thorough. Great credentials. I would highly recommend her.

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

Dr. Portnoy accurately diagnosed my voice issue after I saw numerous professionals who were unable to do so. He performed a successful surgery that essentially saved my teaching career and way of life. Throughout the entire process, he was very personable, encouraging, and professional. In addition, his practice has seems to have the most current and productive technology for diagnosis and treatment. I will recommend Dr. Portnoy to any person who is seeking ENT services in the future!

I have been a patient of Dr. Ephrat for many years. He is a great doctor. Super knowledgeable and spends time with you explaining and answering all your questions. He is also on the Dr. Oz show all the time.

Everything went flawlessly. Very quick and efficient. Totally recommend her!

I've had trouble breathing almost my whole life. doctor chowdhery tried a few different options to help me breathe easier. he recommended doing an in office procedure called a turbinate reduction. The procedure took about 10 to 15 minutes. No pain, no discomfort. By the time he finished even though i was numb you could immediately feel a difference. It took about 2 days for the swelling to reduce to feel the full benefits but i can't believe how much better i am breathing. I wish i did this year's ago. The staff is very polite and answer any questions or concerns you may have. I would definitely recommend Dr. Chowdhury and ent and allergy to anyone looking for relief.

Excellent visit. Had to take time filling out new patient info. I could have done that on line. Once I completed the paperwork I was seen. She answered all questions and gave a thorough exam. She gave me a computer printout of the visit which I found quite helpful. I would recommend Dr. Yao to a friend.

When my daughter had severe vertigo and begged us to figure out was wrong, we went from the pediatrician to neurologist and back to the pediatrician before turning to Dr. Hekiert. She was very calming and very thorough with her diagnosis. She made sure my daughter got the tests she needed quickly so that we could know the cause and assure her that an end to her dizziness was in sight.

I was diagnosed with Meniere's Syndrome in August 2011. After seeing about 5 different ENT doctors in NYC whom didn't really helped me feel better, I searched and searched on the internet and came upon Dr. Gordon's name. Went to see him and have been his patient since then. I still have Meniere's but he gave me back my life. He talked to me about this medication that is no longer available in the States but is in Europe and that controls my vertigo pretty well. He also did an intra-tympanic steroid injection a few times that helped as well. He is a very sensitive and understanding doctor and I recommend him 100%. He's always available. Thank you Dr. Gordon!!!

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Dr. Messenger for several years. He has treated and operated on both my daughters for their tonsils and chronic illnesses associated with tonsillitis. He is very caring and really relates to his patients in a comforting bedside manner.

Dr. Colen had amazing bedside manner and a load of knowledge. Her medical assistant was excellent as well. Would recommend to anyone.
