Dr. Ryback is my favorite doctors. He always 'fixes' me (I have had sinus problems allergies and rhynitis for years) -- and no matter what procedure he does in the office nor what medication he prescribes or what procedures he does (I have had two -- for nasal-septal deviation -- antrostomy sphenoidectomy ethmoidectomy -- due to horrible sinus headaches -- first one in the 1990s -- immediate postop didn't feel too good (hard to breathe with packing) but when all that stuff was gone -- I could breathe! Fewer colds and headaches. Lasted about 10 years. Then blessed laser was invented and a few years ago had outpatient procedure to clean out nasal passages and it was like magic. He is a magic nose doctor! Plus he has the best sense of humor of just about anybody I know -- he is so funny and has me in stitches (not literally) ever time I go there. I highly recommend!
Dr. Marchlewski is a very thorough caring and knowledgeable allergist. He is very good with my son. I've been going to Dr. Marchlewski for a couple of years now and would highly recommend him.
For years my sister lived with a large mass that grew and grew depleting her energy self-esteem and quality of life. My sister stopped looking at herself in the mirror and contemplated suicide. Then a co-worker told my mom about a head and neck surgeon name Dr. Jonathan Smith who specializes in tumors of the head and neck. My sister had no idea that the day she and my mom met with Dr. Smith that the lives of our entire family would change forever. Dr. Smith worked on my sister for what seemed like half the day. The incision went from her ear canal up and behind her ear and down making the scar nearly invisible. When she wears her hair down it’s really hard to notice. She had no complications and we all found Dr. Smith to be clear willing to spend the time to explain the surgery to my sister and our family and he was very accessible. My sister got married two months ago. Thank you Dr. Jonathan Smith.
This gifted surgeon saved my mom's life in 1993 when he removed a very large malignant tumor from her saliva gland. She lived another 13 years thanks to him before dying from a heart ailment. He is one of the most talented knowledgable doctors in this field.
Dr. Cece is an excellent doctor. My father is his patient and when he had a problem with the cartoid artery he referred him to a top notch doctor at NYU. He always returns your calls and spends time with his patients.
Good guy. Really knows his stuff and the office is very modern and well run.
This is the best doctor and allergy office I have been to. The office has saturday appointments, which is awesome. Dr. Ponda is a nice, soft spoken man who knows his stuff. I went to him as a specialist in food allergies, but he is good at treating regular allergies as well. He does not push you into any kind of treatments, just presents them to you and makes sure you understand everything.
Extremly competent doctor and staff. If you have ENT problems this is the practice to go to.
Dr. Glaser and the staff at ENT and Allergy Asso. are all world class. My entire experience with them all has been truly wonderful. The care, both before and after surgery, has been the best.
Dr. Blank removed my daughter’s tonsils and adenoids. I was extremely pleased from start to finish. He is very knowledgeable and everything he said would happen, happened exactly how he said. The staff at Day-Op was amazing! They made the whole experience not only pleasant for my daughter, but for me as well. I needed that!
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.
I saw him in 2005 for severe sinus issues: it turned out I had sinus polyps basically under my cheeks on both sides. I required surgery to remove them and four follow-up in-office treatments for cleaning out dried blood scar tissue etc. Dr. Cusumano is an excellent surgeon and he did a great job for me. I found his manner very reassuring. My condition required a lot of detailed very precise and delicate treatment and he was terrific. I highly recommend him. What a relief! My symptoms were gone.
I was very pleased with the medical care I recieved from Dr. Lin. I went to him for rhinoplasty surgery as I was unhappy with the look of my nose. He did a thorough exam and consultation regarding what I was looking for. After my few weeks of recovery I am extremely happy with the results! I highly recommend him as a plastic surgeon.
I underwent a total thyroidectomy and Dr. Lesserson was my surgeon. He was very detailed in explaining what needed to be done and what the outcome, possible side effects and risks were involved in the procedure. He made me feel at ease and knowing what to expect after the surgery helped in overcoming my fears. He visited me the day after the surgery and made sure that I was comfortable and was not experiencing any pain. He scheduled me for follow up appointments and made sure that the next steps which involved an endocrinologist were not left hanging. He recommended names and again, explained that though he no longer is involved in the next steps, he was still available for any questions. I only have praises for this fine doctor and will not hesitate to recommend him.
Superior ENT Dr & Surgeon. Has excellent skills & perceptive judgement. No regrets being under his care for the past 15 years.
Really an outstanding Doctor. He is very approachable and without airs, real knowledgeabe and took care of my problem. He made me feel like he cared.
Anna Aronzon is one of the most knowledgeable physicians I have seen. She was recommended to me and I found her to be the most thoughtful in her prognosis. She helped my chronic sinus issues. She does not look for the easy fixes that don't last, but actually gets to the root of the problem. Thank you Anna!
Dr. Wakefield was phenomenal!
I had recently had surgery with Dr. Lesserson to fix a deviated septum. He was very thorough in preparing me for the surgery and telling me what to expect afterwards in terms of the recovery. He was also easy to reach in the days immediately following the surgery. He was right on the money with what he said to expect. The first 7 days were rough, but once I saw him a week after the surgery for a follow-up and he removed the splints, I was able to breathe better than I can ever remember. The breathing continued to improve for two weeks after that visit and I can honestly say that I breathe better now (at the age of 43) than I did when I was a child. If you ever need work done on your nose, Dr. Lesserson is the one to see.
If you need an ENT - Steven Sacks is the doctor to see. New York Magazine's top doc list for several years. Dr. Sacks operated on me almost 12 years ago for chronic/pan sinusitis, polyp removal, nasal septum correction and extensive work on several sinus cavities. Post surgery - no pain, no black and blue marks and no discomfort on the removal of packing from both nostrils. I see him several times a year for my asnomia (loss of smell and taste) in my case due to polyps and infections. To say he is compassionate and caring is an understatement. He truly cares about his patients and is always looking for the best treatment to provide, without being invasive. Through these 12 years, he has never let me down, has always been there to provide me with the best treatment possible, and gets me smelling and tasting again. A bedside manner that one longs for - you won't be in better hands with anyone else.
