Dr. Raithatha, who has helped thousands of patients overcome their sinus problems, is fortunate to be among the first in the area to offer a new breakthrough medical device for patients suffering from chronic sinusitis. Dr. Raithatha offers the Propel implant as part of his treatment options. The Propel implant is the only device in the industry backed by Level 1A evidence and proven to enhance and significantly improve outcomes. When placed in the ethmoid sinus following surgery, PROPEL decreases scarring and inflammation, reducing the need for additional surgical procedures as well as oral steroids and their potential side effects.
The spring-like PROPEL implant props open the ethmoid sinus to maintain the surgical opening, delivers an anti-inflammatory medication directly to the sinus lining, and then dissolves, avoiding the need for removal. For more information, please watch the video below:

I have been going to Dr Roheen for about 2 years now and I could not be happier. He is extremely patient and professional and takes his time to walk you through the entire process - starting from whats going on, why is it happening to how can I prevent it in the future. Definitely one of the best ENTs in New York!

Dr. Raithatha is okay. The office was good and the check in was pleasant. I'm not sure what to expect but I guess Dr. Raithatha just want to finish my appointment and get on with the next one. I was okay with that because doctors nowaday is mostly like that. what I thought after was what I dislike his office so much. his assistant or the person who call in the prescription was so rude and unprofessional. she was not helpful at all.

I was referred to Dr. Roheen Raithatha by my dermatologist (Dr. Samer Jaber). The woman at the check-in desk was friendly. My appointment was for 5:30pm and Dr. R called me back at exactly 5:30. The office and exam room were super clean. Dr. R is a caring, knowledgeable, professional, thorough, wonderful ENT. Dr. R asked me what my concerns were and examined my ears, throat and nose. He drained some of the wax build-up in my ears and took the time to thoroughly explain my issues. He explained everything in words and examples that I could understand. He was warm, friendly, and articulate. We discussed my treatment plan and he presented me with a variety of options. Dr. R took the time to answer all my questions and was not trying to rush me out which I have had happen to me by other ENT;s. He was very pleasant and has great bed side manner. I have seen 2 other ENT's in NYC and neither provided me with the care and great experience that I received from Dr. R. I will definitely be sticking with Dr. Raithatha and highly recommend! .

Dr. Raithatha saw me the same day when I couldn’t shake the fact that something was in my ear. He gave me a good diagnosis and calmed my hypochondria. The audiologist was great and made me feel comfortable.

I suspected a broken nose after playing soccer. I booked a morning appointment with Dr. Raithatha. He performed a quick endoscopy and was able to tell right away it wasn't broken. Quick appointment. Highly recommend.

Dr. Raithatha was wonderful! I'm a bit jaded about doctors after having so many mediocre visits in my 12 years in NYC, but this doctor was really amazing. Truly one of the best I have been to.

02/13/2017 Candas A. from ZocDoc
He was attentive, explained things really well. He asked to do a nasal endoscopy and they went over pricing with me BEFORE doing it and getting my consent. This never happens and was highly appreciated.

Dr Raithatha was very professional and his staff were extremely courteous. Highly recommend.
02/09/2017 Raquel A. from ZocDoc
I waited almost 10 years to address this issue because of fear and anxiety. He let me explain, he listened and he didn't snicker at anything I said. I've had this experience multiple times in my past and he was not one of them. He assured me that everything would be fine regarding the procedure he was about to do. I was incredibly anxious and he was very kind and understanding
02/09/2017 Eileen M. from ZocDoc
Have seen him twice and both appointments were great. Staff is helpful and professional, very quick and he takes the time to explain what is occurring and next steps.

Love this location and have been back a second time! Came here with some severe sinus congestion and knew something had to be up. One week prior I went to the local urgent care in Union Square and they gave me some crap that did NOT work and I felt worse and worse…I am SO HAPPY that I found Dr. Raithatha. He took his time in explaining what was happening with my nose and even showed me the video of how clogged and congested it was. He then explained in detail what medications I would need etc. etc. I was having some headaches afterwards and was able to call him afterwards for more questions and he was concerned and friendly…I am glad I found a great ear nose throat doctor for all of my sinus infections.
The most knowledgeable and genuine doctor I have ever met. I am the type to avoid doctors at all cost, however he understood my humor and really broke down everything for me. I would highly recommend him! The whole staff was warm and sweet and the wait time was not long at all. If you need a good ENT, see Dr. Raithatha!
I've been a longtime visitor to ENT and Allergy Associates. My usual doctor was unavailable to see me today, and luckily Dr. Raithatha was free. He was courteous and detailed. While going to the doctor when you feel awful is never fun, I'd happily see him again.
