Dr. Surow was incredibly thorough and explained my diagnosis and treatment in terms that were undeterstandable and made sure I felt comfortable. His bedside manner and friendly disposition should be the example. 5/5 would recommend to others.

Dr. Surow is by far my son's favorite doctor. He has been a patient for over 11 years. I would not trust my children with anyone the way I do with him. He is patient and always thoroughly explains my childrens' diagnosis with us. I highly recommend!!

I have been taking my son to Dr. Surow for over 11 years. He is by far the most thorough doctor I have ever been to. He always takes the time with my son, and explains everything to him, as well as myself. I would trust him to perform surgery on all of my children. He has a wonderful bedside manner. I am shocked by all the negative comments made by people. I feel horrible for those who had to second guess his expertise. wouldn't trust anyone else to see my children. He has had a great relationship with my son, definitely one of his favorite doctors. I find the office is overbooked though and causes long delays. He is worth the wait, office needs improvement.

My family has had nothing but positive experiences with Dr. Surrow! While his speaking g into the dictaphone is a bit annoying at times, I feel like I know exactly what is going on and can correct him if he has missed understood something . I also, like that I know that my records will be accurate as I am right there when they are being created.

Spends more time focusing talking into his little microphone than listening to his patients, doesn't want to help, doesn't listen to anything the patient has to say, rude and very poor bedside manner. And the best part is you get to wait an hour to be seen.

I'm totally surprised by the low reviews. I liked Dr. Surow. He cuts through all the baloney and gets to the point. He explained everything so I could understand it. Super thorough and communicated very well with my 6 year old that is challenged by language. I also booked the appointment online which was awesome. His front desk staff and nurse were great as well.

Rude, impattient doctor who doesnt let you speak and seems confrontational when you describe your symptoms. Have loud crackling in my ears when i swallow and he said this is "normal" in a condescending tone.

Dr. Surow is excellent—a top doctor clinically and a caring human being. He has treated my daughter over 6 years, and performed her adenoid surgery. He is consistently extremely thorough, listens carefully, and explains medical details more clearly than most doctors. He is great with both children...

The office staff were very nice and helpful. Dr. Surow was very thorough and addressed all of my concerns and explained my treatment options and did not rush and was very understanding regarding my symptoms. I highly recommend him.

We were told to arrive early and fill out paperwork. I don't know why we were told to come early since we waited about 2 hours anyway to see the doctor. We did think he was knowledgeable and helpful though. The wait was very unpleasant and I hope future visits are better.
He removed my sons adnoid and put tubes in his ears. Great Dr. from beginning to end!
Dr. Surow is excellent! I have a bad ear problem and he took great care of me. Spends so much time with his patients and truly cares about them. His staff is excellent! Highly recommend him. One of those rare doctors who is truly devoted to his patients.
