Dr. Vassallo and his staff were friendly and professional. I had a weekday morning appointment before work and before we started all the tests they let me know how long it would take and made sure I didn't need to rush to work, I really appreciated that! Other than waiting for the test results (which is normal) I wasn't waiting long at the office at all. You can quickly tell that Dr. Vassallo is passionate about his work and wants to help his patients be allergy free. He talked me through all my treatment options and actually explained the biology and anatomy behind my allergies. I am very sensitive to dismissive or overly busy doctors and that is definitely not the case with this office. I would recommend him to any of my friends suffering from allergies. And as a bonus, they have early and late hours + they're open on Saturdays.

Dr. Vassallo was detailed in explaining my allergies to me. The nurse was kind and gentle as she administered the allergy test. I recommend him without hesitation. The quality of service from the reception desk, nurses, and doctor was quite superlative. Dr. Vassallo is extremely knowledgeable about his field of study and I feel as though I am in capable informative hands.

I only waited about 10 minutes beyond my appointment time. The ladies at the front desk were friendly and helpful. The technician who performed the scratch and breathing tests was so nice, explained everything . Dr. Vassallo was wonderful! Explained everything in detail, answered all my questions and is working with me to alleviate my allergies once and for all. I'd been to 2 other doctors and am so glad I came here!

Dr. Vassallo is really amazing, he's seriously like the Bill Nye of allergists (very knowledgeable and able to explain everything in a complete and easy to understand way). He's very pleasant to speak to, doesn't rush you or push any medications on you, answers all of your questions, and is just an overall warm doctor, there really should be more doctors like him. The ENT office I visited with him was in a large building where you have to sign in at the lobby before taking the elevator up. The office has the largest waiting room I've ever seen though it's nothing impressive other than the size, they do have a TV going which helps to pass any time you would be waiting (my wait wasn't long at all though). Registering here is entirely electronic with these special tablets so it's nice to see they're up on technology. If you've never gone for allergy testing there are a ton of needles involved (like 50+) but they're tiny and done very quickly and the vast majority of them just poke the surface of your skin so they can see the reaction. The office seemed brand new so everything was very clean and new. Dr. Vassallo genuinely seemed invested in discussing the results with me and listened to any and all concerns I had. I would definitely suggest making an appointment with him for any allergy (and whatever else he specializes in) need you may have.

I really appreciate how Dr. Milo Vassallo took the time to explain to me what my allergies really mean and different routes that we can treat them. I came in recently for a check up on one item, and through his expertise, we were able to catch another allergy that I had no idea was affecting me. I never felt rushed, which was nice because I had a lot of questions. In addition, his aid was a lovely lady who made me feel really comfortable and respected. I also like how Dr. Vassallo was not quick to write off a prescription, but explained some other practical ways to make me feel better, aside from pills and medicines. I feel like I have really found a quality specialist and will be returning in the future if I ever have any other questions.

Dr. Vassallo of ENT Allergy in Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY is a pro with great patient relationships. He is very pleasant and informative and never hesitates to answer any questions you, as a patient, might have. He doesn't talk down to you but treats his patients as equals in the doctor/patient relationship. Highly recommended. By the way, the same goes for the entire staff at ENT earns my high marks as well: from the receptionists to the professional aides - they make you feel welcome and comfortable. I'm very happy with the efficient and professional way this office is run.
