Tarrytown, NY – August 3, 2009, ENT and Allergy Associates, LLP (ENTA) is proud to announce the September 1 opening of its newest office in Hoboken, New Jersey. This state-of-the-art medical office will serve the growing patient population from Hoboken, Jersey City and the Newport area and our physicians and clinical staff will provide full service Otolaryngology, Audiology and Allergy medical services.

Dr. Tahzib is taking a leave of absence but helping to transition her allergy practice to ENTA.
Hoboken represents the 30th ENTA clinical office location in communities throughout New York and New Jersey. ENTA is the largest and most comprehensive ENT practice in the country, and now consists of 100 physicians and over 50 licensed audiologists.
