ENT and Allergy Associates, LLP ® Welcomes Otolaryngologist / Fellowship Trained

Head and Neck Surgeon Jack E. Russo, M.D., to its Brooklyn Heights location

Tarrytown, NY-September 18, 2018:  ENT and Allergy Associates (ENTA), is proud to announce the newest addition to its roster of over 200 board certified ear, nose, throat, allergy and audiology specialists and sub-specialists.  Effective March 1, 2019, Otolaryngologist/Fellowship trained Head and Neck Surgeon, Jack E. Russo, M.D, will join its Brooklyn Heights office located 300 Cadman Plaza West, Suite 1301, Brooklyn.

There he will serve the needs of adult and pediatric patients alongside the elite clinical team, including otolaryngologists Sheldon Palgon, M.D., Francisca Yao, M.D., Tahl Colen, M.D., Paul Vastola, M.D., and allergist/immunologist Milo Vassallo, M.D.

Dr. Russo earned his medical degree from University of California, Davis School of Medicine, then went on to complete his residency in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at Dartmouth- Hitchcock Medical Center. He then obtained fellowship training in Head and Neck at Mount Sinai hospital in Manhattan.  Dr. Russo chose a career in head and neck surgery because it combines surgical and non-surgical treatment and allows for long-term relationships with many of his patients who have chronic or ongoing conditions. He chose to further specialize in oncologic and reconstructive surgery of the head and neck, which involves removing tumors of the face, nose, mouth, throat, and neck and rebuilding those areas when necessary.

"Having Dr. Russo join our team will be a wonderful development for both us and the Brooklyn community," noted Dr. Francisca Yao, physician partner at ENTA’s Brooklyn Heights office. His advanced training in head and neck cancer medicine and surgery means more depth and breadth of overall available resources, so the entire staff, and patient population, is sure to benefit.”

Added Dr. Robert Green, President of ENTA, “At ENTA, our mission is to provide each of our patients with the finest medical care possible.  There is no doubt in my mind that Dr. Russo is the kind of doctor who will do just that. We are all looking forward to the assets and expertise he will bring to our offices.”

“We are presently working with the Brooklyn Veteran Administration to see if Dr. Russo can help provide his surgical services to our troops,” noted Robert Glazer, CEO of ENTA. “We have proudly served the needs of a growing patient population in Kings County for many years and felt the time was right to add more resources to our roster of exceptional trained physicians. We are thrilled to have him become part of the team.”
