I am very satisfy with the visit, knowledgeable and attentive. I highly recommended

Dr. Godin is one of the Best Doctors who earned my trust from the first visit. He will continue to be one of the best since his care, patience, and understanding of how to be a doctor amaze each time I visit his office. His staff are awesome, they are so helpful and caring . What a wonderful crew. Thank you Dr. Godin for being an amazing doctor.

Dr. Godin is an incredibly professional individual, as are all of his staff. From the minute I step into his office, I know that my experience will be quick, yet very thorough. I couldn't recommend him enough.

It's always nice when a doctor tells you "he won't give up until you feel better!"

This doctor was one of the best, if not THE BEST, I have ever seen. I had a complicated issue that I went to a number of physicians to discuss. None of them were able to get to the root cause of my problem, let alone solve it, until I went to see Dr. Godin. Not only is he smart and extremely competent, but he takes the time to go through the facts and options with you so that you can make good decisions about your course of treatment. He also makes complex medical issues easy to understand in layman's terms which I really appreciate. I have seen some reviews complaining about long wait times in his office. I have a few things to say about that. 1) Who wants to go to an office where the doctor has no patients or strong following. That is like eating at an empty restaurant. The crowd says a lot about his skill; 2) When you see the time he takes with you its easy to understand how he can run behind. Frankly that is a trade off I will take everyday of the week; and 3) When you have an emergency, he is there for you. He will fit you in as he did for me. In short, this is one of the best doctors I have ever met. I can't thank him enough for the quality of life he has restored to me. He pairs cutting edge technology and medical knowledge with an old fashion approach to patient care from a relationship perspective. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Dr. David Godin is absolutely fantastic.  He is highly professional, intelligent, caring and very easy to reach.  I came to David with a deviated septum issue, he knew the exact fix and provided me with both guidance and a recommendation.  I used David for my surgery and it was very successful.  I highly recommend Dr. Godin for anyone looking for an ENT Dr.

I was given a Thank you for your trust card by the office asking if I would share my experience. I was delighted so here it goes My 8 year old daughter just adores Dr. Godin. He's such a great Physician with kids. Any Doctor who can get my kids to enjoy a Physicians visit deserves the highest praise. Thank you for providing such amazing medical treatment to my daughter Dr. Godin... She's already looking forward to her end of summer visit. Best!

I recieved a follow up care call from the office regarding my recent visit. It was explained to me that I would receive an email linking me to a few sites to share my experience hence writing this review. In short, Dr. Godin & his staff were extremely professional and courteous during my visit. There are no complaints. The wait was moderate, but in comparison to my other Physicians this doesn't seem to be different from any other Doctor. I without reservation recommend him as your ENT.

Our two young sons suffered chronic ear infections until we brought them to Dr. Godin. . We needed a specialist to finally diagnose and treat our children and we were so fortunate to find Dr. Godin! His excellent care, incredibly helpful staff, and personal follow up attention have been unparalleled in our experience navigating doctors' offices. We highly recommend Dr. Godin!

Bringing my two young sons to Dr. Godin has been one of the best decisions I have made as a parent. They both suffered from chronic ear infections and Dr. Godin's excellent care, perfect tube placement procedures, and incredible follow up has made all the difference! Thank you so much Dr. Godin for taking such wonderful care of our boys!

Dr Godin is excellent knowledgable and very professional. I highly recommend him.

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Godin. He was my first and only choice. He exceeded my expectations at a time when I felt helpless. He is a great doctor.

Beside the wait time... This Physician and his office staff were incredible. My experience with everyone was pleasant and satisfying. Dr. Godin was very knowledgeable of my ailment and had a plan of action ready to go. He even had his office manager assist with getting a speedy visit for the MD I was referred to at the Eastside office. Terrific Team!

I admire a doctor's office with compassion and empathy and Dr. Godin's office is exactly that. My visit ran pretty late today, but when I realized why I more than understandable. While I waited, his staff gave me an update every 15 mins or so and apologized for the wait. I was even given 2 coffee gifts cards by the office manager which was super nice! END RESULT: Dr. Godin really took the time to listen and truly care for me. He's DEFINTELY worth being your designated ENT.

He was very thorough- took care of my problem and went further with testing and another appointment.

Very pleasant and informative. He's a great doctor!!!

I first met Dr Godin in Fall, 2009, when my Primary Doctor sent me to diagnose a swollen gland in my neck. Dr Godin was (and is) very personable, professional and totally focused on the needs of his patients. He brings both intensity and quiet confidence to his practice that I instantly knew I was in very good hands. Dr Godin did a biopsy of the lymph node. A few days later, he told me that it was cancerous, and that I had Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He also called an Oncologist from his office, which led to further tests, 6 months of chemo, snd eventually total remission from cancer. Recently, My Primary Doctor referred me to Dr Godin again, and he is still the same friendly, focused professional that I do much admire.

Dr. David Godin is professional, caring and concerned for his patients.  His office staff is also very attentive and the wait time is minimal.  The office follow up is excellent and I would recommend Dr Godin to anyone with ENT and allergy issues.

Dr. Godin is great! He was very thorough and polite. The wait time was a little bit extensive but they knew up front and told us right away. He was also very apologetic. Otherwise, I would definitely go back.

Very friendly doctor and nice office, but wait time (2h) was unacceptable, especialy with young children!!

Very professional, friendly, personal, knowledgeable. Would recommend.

Dr. Godin was excellent and so was his medical assistant.

The doctor was great-attentive and helpful. The wait was too long

If they could have seen me on time I might have had a better experience, everything else was great but it messed up days plans a lot.

Great doc... Super efficient and fixed me up good. Would definitely return in the future.

My dad highly recommends him! He was not feeling well and came back feeling 100%.

Dr Godin was great! He answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable with the remedies he proposed to not only fix the problem now, but prevent it from continuously occurring. I've already scheduled a follow up to do some allergy diagnosis as step1 with him for next week. I have faith that he'll be able to find me a good solution.

Overall good. Fixed my issue, no-nonsense, and explained it. That said, he DID order a hearing test as a "matter of course" -- even though my issue was an outer ear infection and not anything remotely having to do with underlying hearing. After checking with my insurance to confirm it came with no extra copay, I decided to oblige -- "why not, lets check it out if it's free" -- but it's an example of doctors over-prescribing procedures to pad their insurance reimbursements. Medicine is a business, I get it, but I wish they were a bit more open about this with patients.

Wait time was long but doc was pretty good and thorough.

Nice man, very professional. He takes emergency appointments which is great.

He's very thorough and the office is very knowledgeable

I had a very good experience very good doctor

All of the people I came into contact with at his office were incredibly friendly and professional. The only bad thing I have to say about my experience was the wait time; however, they did thank me profusely for my patience.

I have been coming to Dr. Godin for years. Dr. Godin is an utmost professional in clinical skills and knowledge AND makes the patient feel respected and at ease.

Dr. Godin and his assistants were extremely lovely and helpful, I recommend them as Doctors for sure. However, I sat in the waiting room for an hour before anyone even addressed me, or explained why it was taking so long. I also had to wait at various intervals throughout my appt because there were not enough rooms, and obviously there was a lot going on. Finally after over two hours I left and my appointment was not even over, I had to leave because I had to be somewhere else.

Fantastic experience. Dr. Godin was clear and very helpful. The reception staff was a little disorganized (they didn't have my appointment scheduled even though they had received all the paperwork I did when I made the appointment and I had received a confirmation email for the appointment). Regardless, they reacted quickly and my wait time was about 25 minutes.

I think he was great and answered all My questions. He was kind and understanding

My daughter had cervical lymphadenitis and dr godin took care of her. He was the sweetest most thorough, informative, knowledgable, Doctor. He made sure to explain everything to us and had excellent Bedside manner. He did everything to make sure we figured out how to help her. I would highly reccomend him and his office. Because of his care she got better.

Dr. Godwin was wonderful. He took care of my problem. I highly recommend him.

After 3 visits to urgent care, 2 prescribing antibiotics for a sinus infection and the last diagnosing me with allergies, I had been suffering for 2 months. I decided that since I was awake another night, I would call a specialist. I was able to get an appointment same day with Dr. Godin and without a physician referral. He sat and asked me questions and checked my nose & throat and based on my symptoms, diagnosed me with a type of reflux called LPR. He put me on a pill for a few weeks and I feel great. He was friendly and polite. I am so glad I found him. I have been to his office twice and the wait was not long, even as a new patient. I will continue to see him if I have any flare ups.

We had the best experience with Dr. Godin and staff when my 2 year old son had tubes placed in his ears. I could not have been happier with the medical expertise and attention we received; I highly recommend Dr. Godin and team!

Dr. Godin helped set me at ease with my sinus issues. Very attentive and confident.

I was pleasantly surprised when the Doctor himself came to the Waiting room to usher me into the exam room. Dr Godin was pleasant, caring and knowledgable. I would highly recommend Dr Godin .

Dr Godin performed surgery on me, total thyroid dissection, after I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. He removed my thyroid and a dozen lymph nodes. Surgery went great, and he's been great since. He talks to my parents on the phone, he checks in on me, he really cares. Definitely made a great choice.

Friendly, thoroughly, and overall very good experience.

No nonsense doctor. Did not like having an endoscopy right away.

Dr Godin is the best! Although the waits can be very long.

Dr. Godin is a wonderful doctor. Thorough, patient and very professional.

Friendly staff, no wait time, Dr. answered all my questions and explained everything in a simple way

This was my first visit to Dr. Godin's office. It was a great space - very clean and spacious. I was only in the waiting room for about 10-15 minutes, and that was likely because it was my first visit to the office. I was then brought into the exam room in a timely manner which I was prepped by a nurse/PA. Dr. Godin came in about 5 minutes later, if that. The visit was quick, efficient, and thorough. Most importantly, my ear is already much better less than 24 hours after the visit. I would highly recommend this office, and plan to return with any ENT needs of mine.

Had to make a last minute appointment for ear pain and congestion. Was seen that afternoon. Office wait was about 20 min during the late afternoon on a weekday. Not too bad. Was seen by the nurse promptly and was asked a great deal of detailed questions. This makes me feel better because I feel like they are getting accurate and detailed info about me, my medical history and my symptoms. Doctor came in and was very nice. Great Bedside manner. I told him I was in a bit of a rush since I had to get back to work. He was able to get everything taken care of promptly and send my prescription right over to my pharmacy. All in all was in an out of the doctors and had my medication in hand within 2 hours.

Dr Godin was great. I filled out my paperwork online before my appointment and was in within 10 minutes of arrival. He was very kind and professional. I was nervous about getting the tube up my nose and down my throat but he was very gentle and calmed my nerves immediately. I would definitely suggest going to see him. I will be going back for an allergy test.

As an MD myself, I do my research before going to a new doc. Dr. Godin is an excellent clinician, weighing all the pluses and minuses of therapies, and engages you in the discussion. I trust his clinical judgment, and after seeing him twice for different issues - he's my ENT specialist in NYC.

Dr. Godin is an unbelievable physician. His knowledge, staff, surgical skill and caring nature make him one of the best doctors I have ever used. His ability to accurately identify problems and the root cause of issues both in and outside his area of expertise is truly exceptional. His bedside manner, especially with young children, is amazing. When your child has any issue, you are naturally overprotective and worried as a parent. I felt complete confidence with Dr. Godin as I immediately knew my child was in great hands with a doctor who both cared and was quickly available if I had to reach him. These days, it is very uncommon to have a doctor who is a true expert when it comes to diagnosis and surgical skill while caring about you as a person at the same time. Dr. Godin is that rare doctor. As you can see by my review, I cannot say enough good things about him. If you are in need of an ENT, or have gone to others that could not help you, this is your 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.

Dr. Godin is one of the best doctors I've ever seen. I refer everyone I know to him. I first came to him when I was having serious symptoms of labyrinthitis which he diagnosed. I was completely miserable during this time and Dr. Godin was sympathetic, detail oriented, extremely bright, took the time with me I needed and had an amazing sense of humor to keep me smiling. His staff was efficient, polite, sweet and always helpful. I don't think I ever waited more than 10 minutes to see him. Shortly after the labyrinthitis resolved itself, I saw him again because my septum was deviated in two places and I had failed turbinates. I didn't remember the last time I could breathe. His surgery coordinator was fantastic and on top of it. The surgery went fantastically. Actually walked to his office the next day (about a mile) and it was the only day I wasn't feeling great. Rest of the recovery felt like a bad cold. Dr. Godin had an incredible bedside manner and personally called me to check up on me for the first several days to make sure I was okay. Since the surgery, I am so pleased with the results. The only thing I regret is not doing it sooner. I can smell EVERYTHING now and could not be more pleased with him or the surgery.

Dr. Godin is the man. He has on me on the path to healing a chronically hoarse throat. He is the first doctor to take the time to listen and examine me thoroughly. So many ENTS dismissed my complaints because I'm only 23. He diagnosed my acid reflux disease and has me on course of treatment that has already allowed me to improve tremendously. He listens and cares. I am sending my dad to him to get his throat checked out. Great office location, super easy to get an appointment and kind and caring staff. Thank you Dr. Godin!

I made my appointment with Dr. Godin online with Zoc Doc because of the positive reviews there. i think the experience overall was great. i had been sick for 6 days with what i thought was a cold but it turns out it was a sinus infection which i am not sure i could have found out without seeing an ent doctor. The antibiotics are starting to kick in and I am feeling better already. The wait was average and I was in and out in not to long (admittedly though I filled my paperwork online on the website the day before). This is the second time I came to this group of doctors I had also seen the allergist, so I had less info to fill out paper wise and insurance Info. The nasal scope was not too bad which he explained to me before he did it which he said he could see my sinuses inflamed. The numbing agent made it tolerable. The 2 rx meds were waiting for me at Duane Reade 60th and lex as promised. Dr. Godin is a very good MD with good credentials...I had also crossed referenced him and found him in NY Mag Best Doctors before going and he should be there.

Dr. Godin is an excellent ENT, and should be recommended to everyone.

Dr. Godin was extremely perceptive and kind the moment he walked into the room. He really cared about my symptoms and asked several detailed questions in order to get to the heart of my diagnosis. This, coupled with our genuine banter, made my experience with him extremely pleasant. It was easy to see that he really cares about his job. I would highly recommend him for his expertise and compassion. A+

I am a big fan of Dr. Godin and his office on 5th Avenue. The location is really convenient to my office - it's either a quick subway ride from Union Square or a beautiful walk from my office on a nice day. Dr. Godin is thorough, friendly and funny, answers all of your questions, never rushes you through an office visit and has really helped with my throat problems. When I called and left a message regarding a prescription refill, he called me back from his cell phone to make sure that I was feeling OK. The office itself is bright and spacious and all the staff is really nice and helpful. No one likes going to the doctor - but Dr. Godin and his office are fantastic and make it as enjoyable as possible.

I saw Dr. Godin regarding ongoing sinus issues. He saw me right on time and spent a long time discussing my concerns. He was extremely thorough and explained his rationale for the various treatment options. I was even able to be scheduled with the allergist for the next day. His staff was also very kind and courteous. I will definitely return to Dr. Godin for any ear, nose, or throat concerns in the future.

Dr. Godin was very smart and caring. He immediately knew what my condition was and how he was going to fix it. He spent a lot of time making sure all of my questions and concerns were addressed before I left the office. I was thoroughly pleased and would definitely see him again on any future illness in his specialty.

Dr. Godin was a very informative and thorough ENT. He was stern but i found that to be a very good thing. He took wonderful care of me from the first visit on. He is extremely knowledgable! Would recommend.
