Dr. Habib and staff are amazing! My daughter has such a fear of doctors, but Dr. Habib made her feel at ease, and she actually looks forward to visiting his office. The best part is that we are always seen at the time of our appointment. I've never had to wait! I highly recommend ENT and Allergy Associates.

He was AWESOME. The reason for my visit turned out to be a big nothing, but he was so thorough and made me feel so comfortable. I told him I'm usually AWFUL at doctors and he made jokes and explained to me what was going on and felt so much better. I'm so impressed! It's a shame I have no reason to go back to see him, I liked him that much!

Dr. Lazar is very professional, attentive, helpful, and thorough. She makes you feel at ease and explains everything clearly to you. Informs you what options you have and what her recommendations are. I needed a medication change, and she herself called to talk to me which doctors usually never do, they get the nurses. I am usually hard to please. Very impressed by her. Thanks Dr. Lazar!!

Dr Leventhal treated me for a severe nose bleed and I found him to be thorough and caring. He took the time to alleviate my fears and answer all my questions. He was approachable and did not make me feel rushed. I would highly recommend him!

Dr. Ephrat is absolutely the best! He is exceptionally competent and extremely caring. I have been his patient for about 10 years and I truly believe he saved my life. Because Dr. Ephrat identified suspicious growths on my tongue and in my neck, he strongly suggested biopsies of both. Because of his accurate vigilance, the biopsies were performed and cancer was diagnosed before it progressed further. 5 STARS +++ ALL THE WAY!

Knowing Dr. Joel Portnoy was one of a select few doctors inducted into the prestigious American Laryngological Society, I decided to bring my wife and mother-in-law to him for throat problems they were both having. He examined, diagnosed and treated both of them quickly, correctly, professionally and confidently. He patiently answered all of our questions and made us feel comfortable at his office. I would recommend only Dr. Portnoy for ear nose or throat problems.

I went today and saw Dr. Ramez Habib because of dizziness. He was able to confirm that I have a mild case and gave me an exercise to do. He was extremely professional, he took the time to explain what was going on with me and why it was happening. He helped explain what the next steps could be if this doesn't go away. He is awesome and I'm so glad that I found him! I also found the staff to be extremely helpful and kind.

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.
