ENT and Allergy Associates, LLP Continues to Bolster the Expertise It Offers Patients in Suffolk County

Welcomes Otolaryngologist Neal C. Gehani, MD to its Brand New Melville Office

Tarrytown, NY –July 11, 2017: When ENT and Allergy Associates, LLP (ENTA)-the preeminent ear, nose, throat, allergy, and audiology practice in the nation-recently opened its state-of-the-art clinical facility at 115 Broadhollow Road in Melville, NY, it was already actively searching for an additional physician to join the superb practitioners initially sited there.  And today, it announced that the search has proven successful.

As of October 1st, 2017, Otolaryngologist Neal C. Gehani, MD will join ENTA in Melville, adding his expertise to the 180+ board certified ENTA specialists and sub-specialists who currently serve patients in 40+ offices throughout New York and New Jersey.  In Melville, Dr. Gehani will team up with outstanding colleagues including Otolaryngologists Eric Smouha, M.D., Peter Berman, M.D, Sabbir Khan, D.O., Vijay Mukhija, M.D. and Allergist/Immunologist Jennifer S. Lee, M.D.

Neal C. Gehani, MD, a Diplomate of the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, earned his medical degree with distinction in research at Albany Medical College, in Albany, NY.  He then completed his internship in General Surgery and received his residency training in Otolaryngology, at University Hospitals of Cleveland-Case Medical Center, in Cleveland, OH. Dr. Gehani, Board certified in Otolaryngology, offers adult and pediatric patients a full breadth of ear, nose and throat services.

Dr. Gehani, who hails from Nassau County, spent the past several years practicing outside of Boston, where his wife was completing a residency and fellowship training program.  Now, after successfully serving patient needs in the areas of adult and pediatric Otolaryngology as well as Rhinology, Otology and Laryngology, he is returning to his roots, and offering his expert care to residents of his native Long Island.

ENTA’s brand new Melville office consists of 11 fully equipped, leading edge ENT Exam Rooms, four Allergy Exam Rooms, two Audiology Booths and a Hearing Aid Dispensing room, and ensures that patients receive the smoothest and most convenient in-office experience possible through its superior operations practices—including a state-of-the-art Electronic Medical Records system, easy to use web portal, Phreesia digital check-in system, and dedicated call center and online capabilities for scheduling same day appointments.

“The patients who place their trust in us in Melville and surrounding neighborhoods deserve the finest care possible,” noted Dr. Peter Berman, Otolaryngologist/Partner at ENTA’s Melville office. “Dr. Gehani has the credentials and experience to meet that level of trust.  We all look forward to his arrival.”

Dr. Vijay Mukhija, fellow Melville partner, added “We are not only delighted to provide additional breadth of services to our patients, we are also particularly pleased to have someone of Dr. Gehani’s talents, expertise and character.  I look forward to working closely with him, and having our patients take full advantage of the clinical expertise he offers.”

Robert Green, MD, President of ENTA, remarked, “We opened our office in Melville fully aware of a continuing need to fully staff it so we may best serve the growing patient population that surrounds it.  After carefully reviewing the qualifications of a number of talented doctors, we unanimously decided that Neal Gehani had all the right stuff. We are thrilled to have him become a member of our team.”

“We continue to add to our services in the Nassau and Suffolk market,” commented Robert Glazer, ENTA’s CEO.  “And beyond the terrific addition of our Melville office and now Dr. Gehani’s joinder, I expect to announce even more physicians and office sites in the near future.  Our model of local same-day specialty care is exactly what the public is seeking, and exactly what we are, and will continue to deliver.”
