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.

VERY GOOD CARE AND HIGHLY COMPETENT STAFF. ON TIME APPOINTMENTS.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this MAN!!!! He is the best! Great with kids. Yes its true you have to wait but who cares when you know that at the end you are going to get the best Dr.! Dr. Blank did my husbands surgery deviated septum (Successful of course) and we are very pleased. I think he is funny, you have to understand his sense of humor and if you cant who cares your getting the BEST ENT. My daughter kept making this horrible sound with her throat and now its gone thanks to him. The other good thing is that his staff is so nice!

My son has seen Dr. Blank numerous times, and every appointment couldn't have gone better. I find him to be good with kids, and he knows what's he doing. The nursing staff is excellent, and I definitely recommend him.

She's great! Wouldn't want any other doctor!

I snore.....wife hates it and I didn't even know I did it. I went to Dr. Godin and he got me a sleep study that I took at home. He was understanding, capable and had a great understanding for my snoring and how to fix it. He did fix the snoring thru a simple procedure. Now my wife is happier and I can sleep in the bedroom again. Doctor Godin was one of the best doctors I have ever seen. 5 stars.

The appointment today was a positive experience from start to finish. We were seen right away, friendly staff and a highly professional visit with Dr. Tahl Colen. Would recommend patients with similar needs! Thanks

Dr. Sacks is one of the most kind, professional and intelligent doctors that I have had the pleasure of meeting and being examined by. He left no stone unturned to arrive at a succinct result regarding issues related to my healthcare. Furthermore, his recommendations for medicines and associated formulas for me to take have dramatically reduced my specific problems. I would like to remind people that doctors are people. They can only do their best for you if you help them by sharing insights into your medical problem/s, listing the medicines and supplements you take, and FOLLOWING their advice. Thank you Dr. Sacks.

Dr. Sacks was by far the most comforting, knowledgeable, and helpful doctor I have ever been to. He explained everything he was doing, what everything meant that he was recording, and made me feel safe and in good hands. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the NYC area looking for an ENT .

Dr. Mehta and everyone in the office were great. Great explanation, procedure, everything.
