Tarrytown, NY—July 31st, 2017: Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers commute into Grand Central Station each and every day. And a sizable number of them do so while experiencing ear, nose, throat, allergy or sleep issues. ENT and Allergy Associates, LLP (ENTA), the preeminent otolaryngology specialty and sub-specialty practice in the nation, fully understands the complexity of these issues. That’s why the nation’s largest ear, nose, throat, allergy, audiology and facial plastics practice recently announced the opening of its newest office at 18 E. 48th St (located between Fifth and Madison Avenues), a short walking distance from Grand Central Station.
It is also why ENTA, home to over 190 board certified ear, nose, throat and allergy physicians proudly serving neighborhoods all over New York and New Jersey in 40 state-of-the-art clinical locations, today announced it is adding board certified otolaryngologist/fellowship trained facial plastics surgeon Jason A. Moche, M.D. to that office. Dr. Moche begins seeing adult and pediatric patients on November 1, 2017.
Dr. Jason Moche-dual board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon (by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery)-will be joining two internationally recognized veteran ENTA physicians at the Grand Central location-renowned laryngologist Jonathan Aviv, M.D. and esteemed sleep specialist Ofer Jacobowitz, M.D., PhD, F.A.A.S.M.

Dr. Moche graduated with high honors from Washington University, where he co-developed a surgical simulation platform for emergency airway procedures. He then went on to earn his medical degree from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, graduating at the top of his class and earning membership in the medical honor society AOA.

Dr. Moche is well recognized in his field and has presented at numerous national meetings. He has also published, authored and co-authored numerous scientific articles, papers and textbook chapters.
As a member of ENTA’s new Grand Central team, Dr. Moche will specialize in all aspects of endoscopic sinus surgery, and facial cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery of the head, neck and cranial base in addition to treating general adult and pediatric ENT patients.
Dr. Moche most recently served as the Director of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Columbia University. His practice specializes in rhinoplasty, face lifting, eye and brow lifting, otoplasty, Botox/fillers, scar revision and hair transplantation. In addition, Dr. Moche is a nationally recognized expert in facial trauma.

“Jason Moche brings top notch otolaryngology credentials, as well as a much needed expertise in facial plastics and reconstruction, to our brand new team in midtown Manhattan” noted Dr. Jonathan Aviv, partner at ENTA. “Our mission has always been to provide our patients with the most comprehensive and superb specialty and sub-specialty medical care possible, so adding a physician of his qualifications and character is the perfect fit for our Practice.”
“We have worked tirelessly to ensure that the overall expertise of our Advanced Facial Plastics Division is second to none,” added Dr. Moshe Ephrat, Clinical Director of ENTA’s AFP sub-division, “and we firmly believe that Dr. Moche’s extensive education and clinical proficiency in those fields is yet another example of our ability to deliver superior medical care to our deserving patients. I’m both professionally and personally delighted to welcome him to ENTA.”
“The continued successful growth of our Practice is predicated on our ability to identify geographic areas that are in need of our clinical expertise, combined with our ability to attract the best and the brightest practitioners and then build cutting edge offices in which they may deliver that expertise to local patients,” stated ENTA CEO Robert Glazer. “Bringing Dr. Moche on board to the office we are opening on E. 48th St satisfies all of those criteria, and we are extremely pleased to once again offer our deserving patients the full measure of ENTA’s depth, breadth, experience and expertise.”
Robert Green, MD, President of ENTA, noted “Our five year strategic plan, developed in 2015, is falling into place as we continue to pursue and successfully achieve office consolidations, investments in new larger offices that are both patient and physician friendly, clinical and business system technology upgrades and the recruitment of the next generation of otolaryngologists, allergists and audiologists.” He continued “ENTA is operationalizing all these elements of our strategic plan and it is extremely gratifying to see the pieces of the puzzle fit so well. Our physicians and staff continue to work together seamlessly and we are achieving fantastic results!”
