Great Doctor. I strongly recommend him. I had an ear condition that had been misdiagnosed by two ENTs before him. He got to the root of the problem immediately. Also, he is reachable with questions & shows genuine concern for his patients.

Dr. Portnoy is an ENT, and without a doubt, one of the finest, and most exceptional members of his profession. The hallmark of his work is his compassion, patience, reliability, and kindness. He is conscientious, poised and diligent, always giving 100% when it comes to meeting the needs of his patients. For example, there's never been a time when I needed an immediate appointment that I couldn't see him either that same day or the next. And he not only knows how to make his patients feel at ease; he's also an excellent problem solver. Dr. Portnoy is as passionate about his profession as he is compassionate about his patients. He personifies everything that a doctor should be, and his integrity is of the highest order. He is an asset to the field of medicine, and has my highest recommendation.

Dr. I. David Bough, Jr, MD has managed my chronic nasal polyps without repeated surgery through his preventive and pro-active quarterly treatments. I have never felt more healed and confident with his professional care. From the moment I walk into his office and am greeted by his professional office managers to the moment I leave, I am extremely satisfied.

Staff was nice and efficient, but I didn't like filling out all the forms as a new patient. Dr. Pazos was just incredible! I waited over 15 minutes to be seen even after taking 5 minutes to fill out the paperwork, but he was worth it. By the time I left, I felt Dr. Pazos had known me longer than my internist who I have gone to for 7 years. Dr. Pazos deserves to be on the cover of a magazine!

Dr. Rechtweg really listened to my concerns and did a very thorough exam of my left ear and throat--two of my main concerns. His scoping technique was extremely gentle and quick and I liked the way he was confident in his abilities. He was very professional and caring in his approach and fully explained his findings and recommendations. I never felt rushed. He is a good problem-solver and takes a conservative approach rather than rushing into more drastic steps/procedures that could be costly and unnecessary. The Garden City office is immaculate and the staff (front desk & nurses) is courteous and friendly. I would definitely recommend Dr. Rechtweg as well as ENT & Allergy Associates for any of your otolaryngology or allergy needs.

Dr. Andrew Blank is the first ENT that I would actually recommend to anyone. He conducted an actual extensive exam on my child. And we know that there are many doctors that cut corners to see as much patients as possible. Dr. Blank's office is not like that. The faculty is very efficient, courteous, and helpful. The times that I have gone there I've not waited more than 5-10 minutes to be seen.

Dr. Blank is great with children and has a great bedside manner with them. My 7 year old daughter was treated by him for recurrent strep and snoring. He recommended minor surgery to remove tonsils and adenoids. We did not listen to the doctor initially being concerned about the procedure. Well a year went by with recurrent strep, we brought her back in. Dr. Blank and he did not say I told you so, but rather, explained how in certain cases the procedure is unavoidable unless you can stand by while the child gets sick throughout their adolescence. Surgery went smooth and Dr. Blank was great.

Dr. Lazar has been my ENT for six years. She is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She asks questions and listens to mine. She did my second sinus surgery- she specializes in corrective surgery, which I needed. She has always been helpful in finding ways for me to manage my chronic allergies and acid reflux disease. I have been recommending her for years because she is excellent. Every time I mention her name to another doctor, they all say the same thing- "Oh, she is good!" I cannot say enough good things about how well she does her job- I am very, very happy with the results of my surgery and her abilities as a doctor.

Great doctor. Very professional and helpful. He was genuinely concerned and took the time to listen. He was fast and kind. The wait at the office was very short. Best doctor I have ever had. Definitely recommend to anyone that needs an ENT specialist.

I have been going to Dr. Davey since my Dr. sent me here because of inflated lymph nodes. I never wait more that 10-15 min to be seen and his nurse is absolutely amazing! They help me get appointments ASAP with other places I need to go, and everything is done to help me as soon as they can. I never felt as comfortable and confident in my medical providers as I do with Dr. Davey.

Just saw Dr. Block he was great good listener spent lots of time with me and did not talk to me in a condesending manner.

I am extremely pleased with Dr. Amy Lazar and feel she is an exceptional doctor. Versed in the latest technology, she has performed complicated sinus surgery and provided various services over the years, all to my satisfaction. She is compassionate and always helpful. Would recommend her to anyone!

Dr. Andrew Blank is by far the best doctor I could ever have asked for. I've been his patient since 11 months old. Not only did he treat me phenomenally for 15 years, but he also provided the same care to my father as well. He completed three surgeries on my ears and removed my tonsils and adenoids. Speaking from first hand experience he is great with children. He cracks many jokes, which always puts a smile on my face. He's just such a jolly person in general. All his patients that I have encountered throughout my various years as his patient love him as well. I have never felt mistreated for Dr. Blank. Although there were sometimes extensive wait time to be seen, he always provided me with the best care from the moment he walked in till the moment that he walked out. He and his physician assistant, Trish, make an unstoppable team. Trish is one of the most sweetest, most down-to-earth, funniest assitants ever. Overall, Dr. Blank is an amazing doctor. I always look forward to my next appointment to see him and joke around. Honestly, I just don't know what i would do without him. So if you are looking for a ENT specialist I strongly suggest him, you won't regret it.

Dr. Gordon diagnosed my vertigo problem and was able to correct it. I found him to be very attentive and professional. He took his time with me and answered all of my questions. I was so impressed with him that I would highly recommend him to anyone with an ear problem.

Dr. Blank is patient and has a great bed side manner. I'm grateful how he puts my daughter at ease while checking her. I have recommended Dr. Blank to several friends.

Dr. Block is quite sharp, a true professional, and very knowledgeable. He genuinely cares about his patients. He listened to everything I had to say and answered all my questions. I did not feel rushed at all. He explained what he was going to do and why he was going to do it. Dr. Block was very gentle when performing the procedure. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Blank has a wonderful bedside manner with kids! He makes the kids feel comfortable and laugh. He also takes the time to explain things to the parents. He is thorough, deliberate and thoughtful in his approach to problems and will adjust his approach based on what is needed at the time, so sometimes he takes a "wait and see" approach and sometimes he takes a more "aggressive" approach. His assistant is terrific! I would highly recommend Dr. Blank to anyone looking for an ENT.

Smart, intelligent, skillful, emphatic, professional, respectful, very knowledgeable, spent time with me, respecting my wishes not pushing for anything. Would strongly recommend her.

Dr. Eisenberg is brilliant and yet cares more about his patients then his ego. I'm forever grateful to him for his professionalism and compassion.

He is the best ENT doctor in New York. He has been treating my son for the past two years and he is doing an excellent job. He knows how to make treating a child easy while making a joke. My son loves going for his appointment. He is also a very good surgeon.
