If you have complex or unusual ENT symtoms, you may want to see Jonathan Aviv, MD. Dr. Aviv is both a first-rate doctor and a medical researcher whose thoroughness and expertise far exceeds any ENT clinician I have met. Dr. Aviv diagnosed the causes of a chronic cough I've had for 25 years. He explained the reasons for my symptoms, showed me documentation of this rare ailment in a medical journal, outlined a complex but do-able treatment plan, emailed several other top-rated physicians on my behalf, and sent prescriptions to my pharmacy - all in less than forty minutes. I am also grateful to the cheerful and efficient staff at ENT and Allergy Associates, and impressed by the state-of-the-art facilities there.

Dr. Joel Portnoy was my 8th opinion for chronic laryngitis, that has lasted 10 years. Every doctor that I went to could NOT help me. He was truly my last chance, as I was so very tired of hearing the same thing over and over again. Dr. Portnoy listened, was very gentle and concerned with my comfort during the exam and gave me real hope, without false expectations. He is very honest, thorough and walked me through my issues with both verbal and visual aids, to explain the plan of treatment. Dr. Portnoy gave me an expected 20 to 30 % better quality in my voice and in a very short period of time, he has given me 80% better quality. When my children hear me speak and for the first time in years,sing,I see them smiling, which in turn brings a tear to my eyes. Dr. Portnoy has given me back a part of my life that I thought was gone forever. Thank you could NEVER be enough! This is the doctor to see the FIRST time!!!

I went to Dr. Gordon after seeing another ENT about my vertigo, who basically told me to live with it. I went to Dr. Gordon, who greeted me warmly. Made DX very soon and has treated me for my vertigo ! Made eye contact. YES he is intense and does use his computer, reviews past history and previous visits. Gives me his undivited attention and answers any question that I have. I am always on time for my visits and have never waited mor than 20 minutes. His staff is delightful and always friendly.

I had a cosmetic procedure here and it turned out beautifully! I absolutely love Dr. Leventhal and actually followed him to ENT from another practice. He is very smart, precise yet down to earth and friendly. The women at the front desk are so sweet too. They can handle the busy office with such ease. I highly recommend it here!

Very good staff!!! Dr. D Leventhal is very detailed and meticulous (covered all bases); made me feel secure and comfortable all throughout the process (from diagnoses to procedures). Healing is great! and he made sure that nothing recurs. The whole experience has been pleasant. Shout out to Erica and Carmela!

I can't say enough about Dr. Munzer. He was the 7th doctor that my daughter saw that was finally able to diagnose her breathing problem. He was fantastic with her in both office and surgery settings. He is highly recommended.

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. Even removed excess wax from my ear which made a hug difference with my balance. I would send anyone that need an ENT Dr. to Dr. Bergstein. You will be pleased with the end result.

Dr Munzer in very knowledgeable and makes you feel comfortable. My favorite thing about him is that me makes you feel like he cares, like he really wants to figure out and fix your problem. Highly recommended.

My son was the patient, he is 18 and autistic. The receptionist was very helpful and the office was very well organized. Dr. Colen was efficient and explained everything in understandable terms. Her bedside manner was warm and personable. I would recommend her to my friends.

I travel quite a way to see Dr. Sacks and he's worth it! He performed sinus surgery on me about a year ago and it set off pulmonary issues for me which were no biggie -- Dr. Sacks actually called me to apologize. The surgery wasn't totally successful so Dr. Sacks did extensive research and now has me on an oral drug regimen that has kept me infection free for 6+ months!

Dr Portnoy is an amazing doctor. He is knowlegable, thourogh and took his time treating my daughter, who let's say was a difficult patient. His office is clean, the staff is friendly, and I trust Dr Portnoy 100%. If you need an ENT it doesn't get better than this.

I went to Dr.Richard Yung today (3rd visit) and he is a amazing doctor. He is highly competent and compassionate. He really listens and truly partners with you in making medical decisions. He is very patient and sensitive to your comcerns. I couldn't recommend him more highly. His assistant, Megan, is also kind and helpful. They both make going to the doctor a good experience.

Because of Dr. Vassallo, I no longer am suffering from allergies the way I have for 40 years!! He is patient and helpful. His staff is warm and kind. I never have to wait for more than a couple of minutes. I highly recommend this doctor and office.

Unlike some other doctors, he knows what is important information to give to patients. That is, you don't have to drag an explanation out of him. Dr. Sacks is knowledgeable and has good psychological sense about how to relate to his patients. It's nice dealing with a doctor who is easy to relate to. And did I mention that he knows his stuff as well? Good doc.

Dr. Aviv is highly professional, caring, and competent. He took his time listening to my concerns and answering all my questions. He also evaluated the test results that I had brought with me from other doctors, and provided me with a strong referral that was very helpful to me. He is known for FEESST, a testing technology he invented which evaluates swallowing and other throat functions. He ran this procedure, and diagnosed my problem right away. I am very impressed and happy to have found him.

Dr. Blank was very easy to talk. He is very knowledgeable and very thorough. My husband and I were very pleased with the way he treated our four year old son. He is now our family ENT. We highly recommend him.

Dr. Godin was extremely perceptive and kind the moment he walked into the room. He really cared about my symptoms and asked several detailed questions in order to get to the heart of my diagnosis. This, coupled with our genuine banter, made my experience with him extremely pleasant. It was easy to see that he really cares about his job. I would highly recommend him for his expertise and compassion. A+

Dr. Wakefield was just so courteous to my mother. She listened to her problem and then explained to my mother what she would do to remove the wax from the ear. She was gentle and put my mom, who is 87, at ease. My mother felt so much better when she left the office. I was so impressed with her, I made the six month follow up appointment before I left. Dr. Wakefield is knowledgeable and kind. The office staff was also courteous and helpful.

I had been struggling with coughing attacks for over 5 years. I had visited numerous doctors, including ENTs, Allergists and others, trying to determine what was causing my cough. I was told that Dr. Aviv was one of the top doctors in his field in the country - He did not disappoint. Within 20 minutes of discussing my situation and running a battery of tests he was able to do what no other doctor in 5 years had been able to do, he pinpointed the cause of my coughing and set me on a course to treat it. My only regret is that I didn't go see him earlier.
