I am a retired dectective with 29 years in the NYPD and was diagnosed with tonsil cancer after working at ground zero. While under his care Dr. Smtih treated me as one of his own family member he displayed empathy compassion and honesty during and after my neck surgery that he performed. Words cannot begin to express my feelings when it comes to him. It was a very difficult and dark time for me. Even now he is still holding my hand on my follow-up visits. To tell you the truth I would follow him over a cliff if that's what he thought to be best (smile). Dr. Smith was God sent and I am truly blessed.

Dr. Amy Lazar is very personable and knowledgeable ENT doctor. She cares a great deal about her patients and shows a genuine sense of compassion for her patients too. The staff at this office is very friendly and helpful with making appointments and checking for insurance approvals. I have recommended her to my friends and family.

In 2003 I was suffering from severe headaches. Additionally I was experiencing intense pain on one side of my face. Dr Jonathan Smith patiently asked me several questions regarding this condition. Dr. Smith concluded that I was suffering from Cluster headaches. At the time this condition was not widely known. Within two hours from my visit with Dr Smith and the prescription he provided my cluster headaches were manageable. Dr. Smith took the time to ask the right questions and had the knowledge to diagnose my problem. No other doctor before him was able to diagnose my condition. Subsequently my entire family have seen Dr Smith for their medical issues and enjoyed the same results. Dr Smith is personableand demonstrates professionalism and most importantly to the highest degree knowledgeable in his field.

m a physician and was referred by my doctor to Steve Sacks MD at ENT and Allergy Associates. I was found to have a parotid tumor and needed surgery but this surgery is complicated by the fact that the trigeminal nerve courses over the parotid gland. If that's cut, one can lose sensory and motor function along the 3 branches of that nerve which goes to the face, the forehead and the jaw areas. Dr. Sacks performed the surgery, preserving all 3 branches by carefully checking the nerve function throughout the entire surgical procedure. He's a pro. I've been cared for by his colleagues in his absence and have been very satisfied with their concern and care.

Dr. Choe removed my cholesteatoma and rebuilt my hearing bones one month ago at NYEE. Now I can answer the phone with that ear. Today at the post-op visit he told me that I can go swimming. That's fantastic. I read so many unsuccessful stories online before the surgery so it really surprise me that Dr. Choe made the whole process so smoothly.

Dr. Rechtweg is always on time. I have never waited for more than 5 minutes for my appointment. He has Saturday and late hours every week and he helped me with my sinus issues. Knowing I also have Crohn's disease he has always prescribed me medicine that would not upset my Crohn's or counter act med's I take daily. I higly recommend him.

Probably the nicest doctor I have ever encountered. I could tell he genuinely cared for my well-being and that he really knew what he was doing. I highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Palgon for all your ear, nose or throat troubles. Also, it didn't even hurt when he gave me a shot.

The best. He operated on my 18mth old daughter and we couldnt be happier. He is patient answers all your questions and makes you feel like he cares about your little one. Highly recommend him!

Seriously, I would follow Dr. Yarmohammadi to the Arctic Tundra. She is hands down THE best doctor I've ever seen. She explains everything, even results from your other doctors. Dr. "Yar" as she is referred to in the office doesn't overmedicate. Even when you are given a drug, she explains that her plan is to give you the lowest dose possible to control your symptoms. And unlike many doctors, she will give you drug samples before she makes you buy something that may not agree with you. Staff and nurses are super friendly. Plus, you never wait more than 5 minutes for your appointment if you arrive on time. If you have an urgent situation, you can almost always get a same-day appointment. I've recommended her to friends and now they recommend her. Everybody needs a Dr. Yar in his or her life.

The office staff was wonderful very easy to make appointments; we were always taken on time and in and out of the office. Dr. Rhee himself and the hearing check people were fabulous with my son!

Dr. Cece is an awesome doctor! I have life-long ear issues and haven't been to an ENT in over 10 years because I could not find one I was comfortable with. He is patient spends a lot of time with you and makes you feel comfortable and reassured. Office staff are professional but not very friendly or personable. Would highly recommend Dr. Cece to others!!

Very Knowledgeable and Nice. I Never felt rushed and all my questions are always answered. The staff is great and very little wait if any at all

Dr Lin was excellent. He has a friendly and comforting bedside manner. He listens carefully is patient answers all questions thoroughly asks if you have any more questions is attentive and detailed in his approach and treatment. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Hekiert takes time with her patients. She explains the procedures and is one of the most caring and thorough physicians that I have used. After surgery she contacted me gave me a phone number to call should I have any problems. I have referred her to several of my friends with absolutely no reservation. She and her staff (especially Iwonna) are great.

She is an amazing doctor. I can't recommend her highly enough.

One of the greatest doctors ever......He performed a thyroidectomy on me and I am so pleased with his work...

He was kind and explained everything to me and to my family and was very very gentle with the endoscope that had to be used to diagnose my problem. I don't think that I've ever experienced such a gentleman in a surgical office before. Our friends all use him and have found him to be gifted both intellectually and with his 'bedside' manner. When I was there one time a woman passed out in their waiting room. Dr. Lebovitz ran out into the waiting room to administer to this woman. She was not his patient but he sat there on the floor with her after she recovered and held her so kindly and spoke to her in such a caring and reassuring way. I've never seen anything like it before. Maybe the person who had to come back twice for a diagnosis required more testing to get to the right answer. They're lucky they didn't have an arrogant dr.who wouldn't admit to needing to chk further!

great doctor! knowledgeable friendly caring. will definitely recommend.

This guy knows his stuff very impressed with him and very hospitable.
