He was an excellent clinician. Listened to your concerns Explained what he was going to do and was very clear with the diagnosis and plan I believe he one of the best MDs I've seen in quite awhile. I am a Director of the Pace University Physician Assistant Program and also a nurse and a Family Nurse Practitioner and I would highly recommend seeing Dr. Poulos. Thank you.

Dr. Portnoy is a very professional doctor and is very knowledgeable. He is very kind and caring person, he made me feel as if I was his only patient . Dr. Portnoy made sure he had special equipment to preformed vocal cord surgery on me and when things got difficult during the surgery, he did not give up!! After surgery my recovery went very well and the follow up care at ENT and Allergy was a very good experience, a very professional and pleasant staff.

Dr. Ramez Habib is extremely professional, curteous, and friendly. He listens to my questions and vows to get to the source of the problem. He is concerned for my symptoms and stresses, and together, he has helped me tremendously in solving my ENT problems. I trust him and feel very comfortable with his expertise. I would highly recommend Dr. Ramez Habib to anyone who needs a wonderful ENT doctor.

Dr. Wirtshafter has been my personal sinus specialist for more than a decade. I trust no one like I trust her. She has prevented me from needing surgery through a combination of sheer determination, attention to detail, and proactive solutions. She is an outstanding physician and I would recommend her to anyone in need of special attention.

Simply excellent. Patient, caring and thorough. Listened to my complaint and ensured I was satisfied.

Very professional - will recommend Dr Colen to anyone - a great doctor and great person.

Dr. Colen is a wonderful Doctor. Very friendly and she actually takes her time to listen about your concerns. You do not feel rushed and she is great at what she does. I highly recommend her.

I have been to three doctors and he the only ONE who was able to diagnose my swollen glad as infected. As soon as possible, I'm having him operate on me to remove my deviated septum. This is a huge deal for me; if not for him, I would be living with it as I have for almost 10 years. That's how much I trust him.

She is well informed and really goes the extra mile for our family. She is amazing!!!

Meeting with Dr. Joel Portnoy the last 7months has been a great experience. I went for a visit because I was having hoarseness for months and finally made an appointment to see an ENT doctor. Since our initially appointment, Dr. Portnoy has been professional, detailed in explaining all procedures and necessary treatment, patient and empathic to all concerns I expressed and very thorough with every appointment. The staff greets you by name and are overall very welcoming. I have been pleased with all of my appointments thus far and would definitely recommend Dr. Portnoy if you are in need of an ENT specialist.

Dr Wasserman was one of the most professional and caring doctors I have ever encountered. His bedside manner is impeccable. He took the time to listen to every single one of my concerns, symptoms, health history, etc. and provided excellent medical advice. I am very pleasantly surprised as I had been to several ENTs in the past who were very abrupt and dismissive. I can't speak to the other doctors in his practice, but his staff was very friendly as well.

Dr. Tom is a kind,gentle attentive doctor...great bedside manor.

After trying a couple of treatments, which did not work for my condition, I had a Tubinectomy done by Dr. Rhee at the end of January 2014. I was so pleasantly surprised in such a good way on how I felt afterwards - unbelievably pretty good!! The whole staff was fantastic!! Everyone there made me feel so comfortable and welcomed. Thank you.

I really appreciate how Dr. Milo Vassallo took the time to explain to me what my allergies really mean and different routes that we can treat them. I came in recently for a check up on one item, and through his expertise, we were able to catch another allergy that I had no idea was affecting me. I never felt rushed, which was nice because I had a lot of questions. In addition, his aid was a lovely lady who made me feel really comfortable and respected. I also like how Dr. Vassallo was not quick to write off a prescription, but explained some other practical ways to make me feel better, aside from pills and medicines. I feel like I have really found a quality specialist and will be returning in the future if I ever have any other questions.

Dr. Lazar is amazingly compassionate with her patients. She actually examine my child in the middle of the night when I did not receive the necessary medical attention warranted at the pediatric emergency department. Truly a one-of-a kind physician who is well-respected by peers and puts her patients' interests before all else. Thank you for taking such good care of our family!

Very professional in nature, soft spoken and a neat attire. Determined my illness immediately. On a return visit to determine that the illness was corrected, Doctor Braat had the demeanor as my first visit.

Dr Munzer was able to diagnose and treat my sinus infection immediately. He provided caring and effective treatment. He used high tech equipment without issue and provided relief from a chronic problem. The staff at ENT and Allergy are always caring and professional. I have recommended Dr. Munzer and ENT to others, and commend them on their standards and treatment.

We originally brought my daughter to see Dr. Blank for a second opinion. She had been suffering from chronic recurrent tonsilitis. He did a thorough, complete history and exam. He patiently answered all of my wife's questions and discussed the different treatment options. My daughter had a flare of her tonsilitis while away at college. Dr. Blank went above and beyond our expectations and worked closely with the doctors up at school to make sure that she was treated appropriately. He is extremely knowledgeable and nice. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for anyone needing an ENT doctor.

A truly great physician. He explained the procedure, kept in touch with my recovery and was very kind and thoughtful. I recommend him to anyone who is in need of his services.
