Tarrytown, NY-January 16, 2018: Ent and Allergy Associates (ENTA), the nation’s largest and most advanced ear, nose, throat, allergy and audiology practice, opened its state-of-the-art office in Woodbridge New Jersey (located at 485 US Highway 1, Iselin, NJ, 08830) in 2012 so it might best serve the needs of the deserving patients who live in its many surrounding communities. It was a significant part of the Practice’s increasing commitment to the Garden State, which now accounts for 11 of ENTA’s overall total of 42 clinical sites.
Today ENTA proudly announced that board certified, fellowship trained allergist/immunologist Shaan Waqar, M.D. has accepted a fulltime position in Woodbridge. He will begin seeing adult and pediatric patients as of April 1, 2018. At that time, Dr. Patrick Ambrosio-who had been splitting his time between Woodbridge and the ENTA office in nearby Old Bridge, NJ, will move, fulltime, to Old Bridge.
Shaan Waqar, M.D., joins ENTA from an allergy and asthma practice in Ithaca, NY. He did his undergraduate work at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. He then earned his medical degree at Albany Medical College, served his residency in Internal Medicine at North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System, and received his Fellowship in Allergy and Immunology from Northwell Health in Great Neck, NY.
He is board certified in Allergy and Immunology by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology; Board Certified in Internal Medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine, and certified in Basic Life Support as well as Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support. He holds memberships in both the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, and has served as a clinical instructor of Pediatrics at the Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine. In addition, Dr. Waqar has presented, and been published, in a number of prestigious journals and conferences, and has been honored numerous times.
In Woodbridge, Dr. Waqar will join superb otolaryngologists Andrew Azer, M.D., Farhad Chowdhury, D.O., Vishvesh Mehta, M.D. and Stuart Ort, M.D. as well as audiologists Sairah Ahmad.
“Our patients and neighbors in the Woodbridge and surrounding communities have long needed the services of a fulltime allergist”, noted Dr. Mehta, “and being able to have a physician of Shaan Waqar’s skills and reputation join us is a real coup. We wholeheartedly welcome him aboard.”
Added Dr. Peter Logalbo, Vice President of ENTA and chair of its Allergy Division “We strengthen our overall team each time we are fortunate enough to add a clinician possessing the highest level of expertise. And that’s exactly what the deserving patients of Woodbridge will have in Dr. Waqar.”
Robert Glazer, ENTA’s CEO, stated “We have striven over the past five years to ensure that our Woodbridge office-all our offices for that matter-are equipped with the latest technological advances and patient conveniences. That includes everything from our simple Phreesia check-in service to our easy and convenient app and website for booking appointments, from Saturday hours to same day appointments. But nothing is of greater importance to us than offering our patients physicians who deliver the finest medical care possible. We are confident that that is exactly what Woodbridgers can expect, and receive, from Shaan Waqar. We are delighted to have him as part of ENTA.”
