I’ve been a patient of Dr. Boough for a few years . He has treated me for upper respiratory infections and for sinus infections. Recently Dr Bough has been treating me for laryngopharyngeal reflux which has been causing me to have laryngeal spasms. Dr. Bough listened to my concerns about what I was feeling & he explained everything he was doing during his examination. Dr. Bough’s treatment plan has helped improve my symptoms. I will continue to see Dr. Bough to manage my symptoms. I have the utmost trust in this doctor. The office staff is great as well. I felt very comfortable in the office from the time I checked in to the time I checked out and made my follow up appointment.

Dr Bough saw me on 07/5/2017 1st thing in the morning after experiencing a debilitating bout of vertigo on the evening of July 3rd. Dr Bough's staff made me comfortable while i waited to be seen everyone took great care since I was very dizzy.. Dr Bough's exam was thorough even the hearing test.. Diagnosis and treatment and follow up were done with care and compassion the Dr's office even called with a follow up the day after the 1st visit to see how I was tolerating the medications.. I liked that personal touch..

Dr Bough saw my daughter on 12/22/27. He was polite, professional and listened to my daughter as she spoke. Dr Bough made recommendations for treatment and we couldn’t be more pleased. Great ENT! My husband had seen Dr Bough a few months ago and also loved him! Great doctor, staff . Office is great. Highly recommend!

my son is a patient of Dr. Bough's in his Oradell, NJ office. Dr. Bough has been his ENT since he was born. My son is now 9. Dr. Bough performed two surgeries on my son. Release of lip tie and tongue tie in 2015 & Tonsillectomy in August 2017. Dr. Bough is very professional, polite & has a great beside manner. He speaks to my son in a polite manner while he is examining him & explains everything he is doing. With both surgeries, my son was anxious as he was being given anesthesia. Although I was in the operating room to provide comfort, Dr. Bough also offered kind words to my son as he was going to sleep. I would recommend Dr. Bough to everyone!

Dr. Bough performed my daughter's tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, and myringotomy with tubes in 2017. He was professional and made us feel comfortable with all the questions and any concerns I had about the surgical procedures. He is also very nice to my 3-year-old daughter so would recommend him as a pediatric ENT. We trust him and would highly recommend him as an ENT overall.

After suffering a traumatic brain injury, Dr Bough was able to work with me to resolve the debilitating vertigo that was a aftermath of the brain injury. After working with Dr. Bough for a month I was able to walk without a cane and now 4 months later I ran my first 3 miles! Dr. Bough continues to work through other ENT side effects with such comprehensive strategies yet with compassion of the mental side effects of this type of injury.

He came to me at 3:00 AM in the ER at Valley Hospital and was very comforting and calming. He continued to see for several weeks thereafter. Dr. Bough is an excellent, caring and comforting physician and I highly recommend him.

Before Dr Bough we saw 3 ENT's for my now 10 yr old and everyone said something that didnt make any sense at all and they all said different stuff. Once we saw Dr Bough he was so patient and kind and professional and knew what he was taking about. I would recommend him in a heartbeat for children and adults as well. These kind of doctors are hard to find now days. THANK YOU!

03/27/2017 B.P from Healthgrades

Dr. Bough is patient and kind. Helped my daughter in an emergency situation and we avoided the ER. Very professional and knowledgeable.

A truly great physician. He explained the procedure, kept in touch with my recovery and was very kind and thoughtful. I recommend him to anyone who is in need of his services.

I am extremely pleased with Dr Bough. I find him to be personable,knowledgable and most of all very proactive in his field.

I had Dr Bough recommended to me by my Primary Care Physician after I had experienced several sinus infections. I knew I had the right ENT on the first appointment. Dr Bough explained my entire problem inclusive of the corrective measures needed which included sinus surgery. It has been one year since my surgery and I am happy to say that he solved my problems and I have been sinus problem free!!! Thank you Dr Bough!

02/01/2014 Patient from vitals.com

Recently, Dr. Bough performed a Para-thyroid surgery (neck area)on my wife. The surgery was successful without any complications. He was very helpful and spent time to answer all our questions, before the surgery and during a post-op visit. After the surgery, we had some questions about her medications, Dr. Bough responded promptly by calling us at home at night. We found Dr. Bough to be very knowledgeable and a competent surgeon and have no hesitation in recommending him to our friends. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience for us.

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.

11/07/2013 Patient from ratemds.com

Dr. Bough has treated my son (age 4). He has a great bed side manner. He spoke to my son gently and nicely. He explained everything that he was doing. I would recommend him to anyone who needs an ENT.

04/19/2013 Patient from vitals.com

Dear Dr. Bough I would like to thank you for the treatment and care that you have given me. You are a very special and very nice doctor. You care about your patients and do your best to make sure they are happy. I appreciate your concern and care very much. Thank you for being a caring doctor.

Dear David Bough MD I visited your office a week or two ago for a problem with wax in my ear and after I mentioned my long time standing stuggle with nasal dryness you were kind enough to give me a sample of Ayr Saline Nasal Gel. I promised to let you know if it was effective. I am reporting that it has been very helpful and I will be using it routinely from now on. I have been using it in the morning on rising and sometimes in the evening before bed. My problems with my nose began 40 years ago when I had rhinoplasty and began using Neosinefrin nasal spray before bed. For years I couldnt go to sleep without my nose spray. Eventually I was forced to stop using it because of nosebleeds-breaking that habit was difficult. I tried other saline sprays and even Ayr gel in a tube but this spray sample seems to be really working much beter than any other product i've used so far. So thanks again. By the way my ear is doing fine. The removal of earwax from the patients perspective is miraculous. Thanks for all your help

For the past 5 years i have been suffering from sinus infection and differnt doctors have treated me with no good result. I was also suffering from dizziness. by the help of Dr. Bough my dizziness and sinus problems have gone away. Even though that helps my snoring problem. Dr. Bough has dealt with me as a friend. He is really a humane doctor

06/06/2012

Dr. Bough just performed surgery on me and I have to say I see improvement already - I have almost no pain and his mannerisms and bed side manner are phenomenal. Before surgery, as they were putting me to sleep he held my arm and kept eye contact with me all the way until I was out. It was a simple gesture but from someone who has been under the knife before it was very reassuring and comforting. Office staff pre-surgery was great too especially with scheduling and keeping me informed.

03/29/2012 Patient from ratemds.com

Dear Dr. Bough I am sure you know that my father Albert Kullback passed away while at Care One at Valley on September 23. I want to thank you for taking care of him while he was in the hospital. I was not only grateful for the medical care you provided him but also the gentle and kind way you treated him. I could not be more appreciative Very truly yours Barbara Myers

09/28/2006

Dear Dr. Bough - This is a bit belated but I wanted to thank you for your kindness and excellent technique during my biopsy! As you know I was nervous wreck and the fear of the biopsy was worse than the surgery. Obviously you know the results and I thought I would just follow up and let you know where I stand. Again thank you for your quick care.
