Dr. Wirtshafter and the entire group of Dr's and staff at ENT and Allergy in Parsippany NJ are wonderful. I have been a patient of the group for many years and I am always treated very well. I have a chronic condition so I have regular visits to the office but I am always greeted with a smile and made to feel welcomed by the group. In particular Dr. Wirtshafter is a very gentle Dr. and she always takes the time necessary to help me out. She has performed many in office procedures and two surgeries on me. I am very happy with her and the entire group.

Very professional, very well educated, and very caring. I have had surgery and it worked. Part of my sinus condition is just the way god made me, my sinus's do not drain properly on their own. Dr Wirtshafter has been excellent in diagnosing and treating my perpetual sinus condition.

Great first visit, provided an understandable explanation of my diagnosis and was great at answering questions, making sure I was fully understanding what he was saying.

Excellent. He is the kind of doctor most other doctor should take listens from. He was very attentive and listened to all my questions and concerns. Highly recommended.

I would highly recommended Dr. Rechtweg. After seeing many ENT Drs. with no results, one trip to his office was able to solve my problems.

I was very impressed with Dr. Colen. She was thorough in her exam and treatment recommendations, present, focused and warm.

Dr. Wirtshafter has been trying my 4 year old daughter for about a year. She performed a tonsilectomy, adenoidectomy, and put tubes in her ears. Throughout the consultation process, surgery, and post-op follow-ups Dr. Wirtshafter has been great. She takes time to explain everything and listens to us describe the symptoms and our concerns prior to the surgery. My daughter started off scared but over the course of the year, she has definitely warmed up to Dr. Wirtshafter thanks to her smiling face and cheerful attitude. The only slight complaint I have is that the office can get slightly backed up in the afternoon around allergy season which resulted in a few appointments where we were sitting in the waiting room past our appointment time. But the staff has always been apologetic when this has happened. Great experience and have recommended the office (and Dr. Wirtshafter) to several people.

Very happy with Dr. Ephrat's professionalism and the friendliness of the staff.

I was diagnosed with Miniere's disease about 12 years ago. I was seeing another doctor (for those 12 yrs) who didn't do much for me. My vertigo was so horrible at this point and I was at the end of my rope! I was desperate at this point! My daughter worked for a neurologist who recommended Dr. Gordon. Well, my friends, he saved my life! He gave me a steroid shot in my ear and bingo!(a little uncomfortable, but bearable) It worked! I got a second shot a few months later because I was going away and didn't want to take the chance of getting sick while away from home. I have to say that I've been feeling great ever since! He gave me my life back at a point where I thought I was going to have to go on disability because I couldn't function! If you suffer from vertigo, I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Gordon. He was also kind and very professional.

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.

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. 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.

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

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

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.
