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.

Dr. Blank is a very seriously hardworking professional. Since he has been treating my son, in the past two years, I have found him to be the best of all ENT doctors. I can recommend him to anybody anytime. The staff members are also very good.

Dr. Portnoy is one of the best medical professionals I have ever been treated by or known. He is brilliant, caring, considerate, and insightful. I originally visited Dr. Portnoy due to a voice issue, which he helped resolve. I now use him as my general ENT and have recommended him to friends and family as such. I have since been thanked for doing so, as they have also had excellent experiences. The office is very well-run and immaculate. Wait times are minimal and the staff is courteous. Nobody enjoys 'going to the doctor', but my experiences with Dr. Portnoy have been nothing but positive.

I saw Dr. Portnoy once, but I was very impressed by his care. He was very caring, thorough, and willing to take the extra time needed to ensure that I understood everything. EXCELLENT physician!!

Dr. Lazar was the only doctor who properly diagnosed my daughter's sinus issue. From our first appointment, Dr. Lazar had a well thought out plan to relieve the tremendous headaches that were found to be from a sinus condition. Dr. Lazar is extremely competent, professional and takes the time to explain in terms a patient could understand. She is the BEST ENT out there and I would recommend her to all my family and friends. Her staff was very helpful and friendly.

All I have to say is THANK YOU, to Dr. Vassallo. If you suffer from allergies and are reading this, Dr. Vassallo can change your life! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Warm,knowledgeable. Explained diagnosis and treatment plan. I would highly recommend him. Staff pleasant . Overall a pleasant experience!

Great doctor. Excellent bed side manner. Very knowledgeable. Easy to get in touch with. Gives the patient all the time they need. Would definitely recommend him.

Dr. Leventhal was clear about my options, recommended a good protocol, and when time came to cut the polyps out, it was fine. Made my constant post-nasal drip and convulsive coughing much, much better.

I cannot rave enough about Dr. Portnoy. At 46 years old, I needed vocal cord surgery, and was unsure and frightened when I visited his office for the first time. Those feelings ended the moment Dr. Portnoy walked into the room. He was amazing every step of the way and took as much time as needed to explain everything in a professional yet understandable manner. He was warm and empathetic, and held incredibly high standards for himself and his staff during the procedure and few months of after-care. I am now speaking and singing better than I ever have! Dr. Portnoy is the best!

She's awesome. I went to her for a hearing issue, had surgery, and follow up regularly with her. She is very kind, genuine, and shows concern for her patients. I definitely recommend her to everyone!

Dr. Blank has treated both my children and my Mom for various throat ailments over the years and has always been extraordinarily kind, caring and professional. He is a superb doctor and diagnostician who also has a special gift for treating and interacting with children. Beyond just handling routine ENT matters, he treated my daughter's broken nose on an emergency basis, spending substantial time with us both over the phone and in his office and helping us find a surgeon in Manhattan affiliated with his ENT & Allergy Associates Group. I highly recommend him and his practice.

Dr. Aronzon is a great doctor. I saw her before my insurance changed. She was very kind, approachable, and thorough! I would recommend her to anyone!

Both myself and my son have seen Dr Blank. I had previously seen several ENT's regarding problems I was having with my ear and got no answers. Dr Blank completed his exam and correctly diagnosed and treated the rare disorder that I have. All an all he's a great doctor. Wait time can be a bit long but he knows what he's doing.

Dr. Palgon has been great! He doesn't immediately throw you on antibiotics like a lot of doctors do. He also always tells you what he will be doing before he does it (like sticking a tube down your nose). I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a kind and thorough ear, nose, and throat doctor.
