ENT and Allergy Associates, LLP Acquires Assets of Two Local Practices  to Ensure
Their Patients Continue to Have Access to The Best Ear, Nose, Throat, Allergy and Audiology Care

Tarrytown, NY: January 22, 2021 – ENT and Allergy Associates (ENTA) has always put its focus on patients first. That philosophy continues today with its announcement of the acquisition of assets of two private medical practices: Dr. Edward Katime in Garden City, New York; and Dr. Shelley R. Berson in West Nyack, New York.

With more than 20 years of clinical site management and transition planning expertise, ENTA has extensive experience in implementing seamless practice integrations. This way, patients continue to receive best-in-class quality ENT and Allergy services—close to home—without any lapse in the excellent care and treatment they deserve.  

Dr. Katime had been in practice for over 35 years before retiring in November of 2020.  Prior to his retirement, he wanted to ensure his patients would continue to receive outstanding ear, nose, throat, allergy, and audiology care. Former patients of Dr. Katime can now see ENTA physicians at ENTA’s Garden City office, conveniently located at 990 Stewart Avenue, 6th floor, Suite 610, Garden City, NY, 11530. The practice can be reached at (516) 222-1881.

Dr. Berson closed her practice in West Nyack, NY after seeing patients in that location for over 30 years.  She now continues to serve military veterans at Castle Point VA Medical Center in Wappingers Falls, NY. Dr. Berson’s former patients can now see ENTA physicians at ENTA’s West Nyack office, conveniently located at 1 Crosfield Avenue, Suite 201, West Nyack, NY, 10994. That office can be reached at (845) 727-1370. There is also an ENTA office located in Oradell at 690 Kinderkamack Road, Suite 101, Oradell, NJ, 07649. The Oradell office phone number is (201) 722-9850.

When asked about these asset acquisitions, Robert Glazer, CEO of ENTA stated, “We are truly honored to care for the patients of Dr. Katime and Dr. Berson. These incredible physicians served their communities for decades.  Caring for their patients is not something we take for granted. They have put their trust in us to provide the same quality of care their patients have come to expect and deserve, and we will do everything we can to ensure that continues.”

Glazer added, “Retiring physicians, as well as practitioners who are considering a move from academia or relocate to this region, regularly contact us expressing interest in transitioning their practice to ENTA.  With the onset of COVID, we have seen increased activity as physicians are reevaluating their options in order to maintain their career and family balance. We have terrific opportunities in the greater NY/NJ Metro region including our vibrant suburban communities. We welcome these inquires given our expertise and reputation as a recognized leader in practice integration and transition planning.”
