I give my highest recommendation to Dr. Portnoy. I had a vocal polyp on my vocal cord that completely limited my voice. It was not only embarrassing to have no voice, but it started to affect my ability to talk at work. I traveled from Washington D.C. to have Dr. Portnoy perform surgery to remove the polyp since he was so highly recommended from my previous ENT. The surgery went smoothly and I could start talking after a month of voice rehabilitation. It’s been 6 months now, and my voice sounds
The only way I would change doctors is if I left the state of New York, and even that would be a hard decision to make. Go and see for yourself!
Dr.Mitzner has been my ENT specialist for several years.He is professional,knowledgeable and most caring.He has done several procedures including a surgical one.
I would never see another ENT doctor.
I highly recommend him.His usual demeanor when he enters the exam room is one who is happy to see you.So unusual in today's medical practices.
I thought the Dr cared spent a lot of time with my son explained thoroughly and asked several times if i had question. Always smiles! Loved the Dr.
Dr. Portnoy is by the far the best doctor! He is so kind, patient, and understanding. He is very knowledgable in his field. He spends time explaining procedures, treatment, and answering any questions. He always returns all calls. It is evident that he genuinely cares about his patients. I would highly recommend him!
If there was a way to add stars I would! I'm a professional singer and teacher so I rely on my voice tremendously. After months of severe hoarseness and diplophonia I sought vocal therapy. My therapist recommended Dr. Portnoy for stroboscopy testing to see what was going on. It is a very uncomfortable test as you need to sing with a camera on your throat. Dr. Portnoy was BEYOND patient and an expert at administering this test. He is knowledgeable and has the bedside manner to match.
Great doctor, understood the issues I presented and demonstrated professionalism and expertise. Seemed genuinely nice and knowledgeable in his field. Would recommend.
Very positive experience with Dr. Depietro. He took the time to talk and explain any concerns I had. Was a master during an office procedure and has a great bedside manner.
In my opinion he chooses the tests that you need wisely, and doesn't put you through unnecessary ones.
I was referred to Dr. Dipietro by another doctor in the practice, Dr. Bratt, for further evaluation on a problem I was having with my larynx caused by silent reflux. Dr. Dipietro put me at ease and the exam of my larynx was painless and informative. I was able to see what the probe was seeing on a monitor which was very helpful. A conservative treatment was recommended to try first and then more corrective treatment was suggested if my problem persisted.
Dr. Portnoy was very thorough with his examination. My daughter was getting her vocal cords checked, and the procedure entails a camera up her nose down her throat. Dr. Portnoy explained the procedure to us with excellent bedside manor. My daughter and myself felt more relaxed. The procedure went as described. The office staff is excellent. This is the fist practice that Ive ever been to that ran like a well oiled piece of machinery! I highly recommend!
I already recommend him to my friends, and my husband is now one of his patients. I have quite a few diagnosis', and he really treats me as though he is part of my team. It is not 'you' or 'I', it is 'we', when he discusses my treatments, etc. I feel as though I am very important to him. He is very knowledgeable, so I know I am safe in his care. While in search of a neurological diagnosis for years, my first visit with him FINALLY led my neurologist to a diagnosis! He is my Hero!! He Cares!
Great doctor with excellent bed side manner. I use him and we'll as my 5 year old son
DR D is an incredible doctor with a great presonality. I had a procedure on my throat in his office to improve my voice. He did an amazing job and made me feel very comfortable throughout the visit and I would reccomend him
Dr. Aliphas is excellent at explaining what he finds and what the options are. Very thorough and very, very patient. Never feel rushed.
Great experience with doctor portnoy. Very helpful.
I was very uncomfortable with 2 nasal balloons blood still dripping for last 5 hours. Office took me as a new patient almost right away. Dr. De Pietro removed both balloons and proceeded to insert a more efficient means to stop the bleeding. He was very calm which helped me relax and I was very happy with his solution. Removal was done as quick and with little pain. He has a very good sense of humor and I will highly recommend him. Thank you.
Dr Ephrat was amazing from our first visit, during our 4 year old's surgery and final follow up appointment. Enough to leave an impression on our son, he called him by name and said "hello, Dr. Ephrat" Best referral we ever received - hope our referral can do the same for others.
Very personable and knowledgeable. Had a wonderful bedside manner which is rare to find in accomplished specialists. I would highly recommend Dr. Ephrat to others in need of an ENT
Dr. Ephrat is one of the best physicians I have ever come across. He is professional & an expert in his field. I've been going to him for several years for any ENT-related issues; he is efficient with his treatment plan & with answering all my questions. I had a sinus surgery with Dr. Ephrat a few years ago as well as a rhinoplasty just recently. I can honestly say I'm happy with the results. For both surgeries, I had no bruising & very minimal swelling. Also, the office staff is very friendly!
Dr. Portnoy is thorough, helpful, knowledgeable, and personable! He put me at ease from the start. He also took care of my son on two separate occasions, and he was amazing and helpful! I highly recommend Dr. Portnoy!!!
Helped me diagnose an issue I've been struggling with for some time. Super thorough and caring. Never feel rushed during an appointment. He always takes the time to hear concerns and discuss. Feels like a true partner in my health. Of all the doctors I've seen in my life he is by far my favorite.
Dr. Depietro is easily the best doctor I've ever seen. He's friendly, thorough, extremely knowledgeable, and he really cares about helping his patients. Each time I saw him, he listened to what was going on with me, was honest about the diagnosis, and clearly laid out all the treatment options. I highly, highly recommend him and wish all my doctors were as great as Dr D!
Dr Ephrat is caring, thorough and professional. He takes the time to fully explain each medical procedure and answers all concerns and questions.....Dr Ephrat is an excellent surgeon, I was amazed at the speedy recovery after my 16 year old had a deviated septum repaired along with other sinus issues. The follow up care was exceptional. I highly recommend him as an ENT!
Dr. Mitzner is attentive, knowledgable and direct in his approach. I came in with a muffled hearing loss that happened very quickly, and both the audiologist and Dr. Mitzner saw me week after week to check in and readjust the plan for treatment accordingly. I trust Dr. Mitzner 100% and will continue to see him as my ENT in the future.
I was extremely nervous andi he made me feel very comfortable and secure with the procedure. I told my husband I would never do it. He was patient, kind, understanding and took the time to listen. He never made me feel rushed. I am a nurse and these days It's hard to find a Dr like him. I highly recommend him especially if you require patience and understanding.
One of the better experiences I've had with a Doctor! Dr. Portnoy was patient, kind and extremely thorough. He explained every detail unlike many doctors. I left feeling assured that the issue I was dealing with for a long time might finally be on the road to recovery. I highly recommend Doctor Portnoy!
Dr. Portnoy was incredibly polite and attentive. He seemed eager to address my concerns and made great suggestions. Additionally, his staff was professional and courteous. The process as a new patient was seamless.
I had my first medical appointment with Dr. Ephrat on October 03, 2016. The reason for visit was Nasal Polyps, Sinus, chronic Rhinitis. After the medical examination Dr Ephrat explained me about my medical condition. I had ambulatory surgery on October 25: Polyps, Septoplasty, Nasal Turbinates.
I am in recovery. I feel much better and very happy with the professionalism, high level of trust, compassionate of Dr Moshe Ephrat.
I've visited Dr. Mitzner on 3 separate occasions, and each experience has been more positive than I can remember having at a doctors office. Dr. Mitzner is both knowledgeable and informative, and the rest of the staff has made each visit simple, efficient and effective.
I took my father for a first time visit to see Dr. Portnoy. The staff was so helpful as was Erica the audiologist who answered all my questions. Upon meeting Dr. Portnoy it seemed as if we had known him for years. He examined my father and made suggestions to improve his condition. He answered all our questions. I highly recommend Dr. Portnoy as it is a rarity today to find a doctor who shows such interest in his patients. No surprise as to why he receives 5 star ratings!!
Dr Portnoy was extremely thorough, explained the problem with my ear & the different courses of treatment. He explained the pros & cons of each treatment option. I never felt rushed during our visit.
Booking online was a definite plus for me.
The office staff was very polite & nice. The medical assistant who I met with first was also great, explained what the dr would be doing & also answered some questions.
Dr. Portnoy and the staff at ENT Allergy Associates are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. I had a painful ear infection and called Saturday morning to schedule an appointment. The receptionist was great and squeezed me in for an early appointment. I was very impressed with Dr. Portnoy's bedside manor. He explained every step of the procedure and frequently checked in with how I was feeling throughout the process. Overall, I had a pleasant experience and am glad I found an ENT doctor!
Dr. Safier is a great knowledgeable doctor. Listens to concerns and complaints and takes as much time as needed with the patient.
Dr Mitzner was amazing with my 5 year old. He was very patient even through all the tears. He calmed him down before continuing treatment. When my son comes out of a doctors office smiling I am a happy camper! Thumbs up to the entire office staff. Diane for accommodating us for an urgent appointment, Monica for being a sweetheart and of course Dr Mitzner!
I have nothing but positive things give say about Dr. Portnoy and the Lake Success staff. Joel identified exactly what my problem was and explained what it was with great clarity and what steps are necessary to move forward. He's a doctor who knows his stuff and one I have full confidence in.
He is wonderful, not only to me but also to my children. Never rushes and is detailed.
Dr. Ephrat and his staff are always friendly and accommodating. He is extremely knowledgeable and goes out of his way to make sure you get better. Dr Ephrat is the best doctor I've ever been to. I would gladly recommend him to friends and family. 5 stars all the way.
Best doctor. Personable, friendly, reassuring and informative. I was so afraid of the nasal endoscopy and he made it feel like it was nothing. So quick, in and out procedure. He determined I needed a cat scan and hearing test. Didn't have to make another appointment. Got both done on the spot. Radiologist and otolaryngologist on site. He reviewed the cat scan with me and explained all the images. Just outstanding service. He goes above and beyond. 10/10 bedside manners and respect. Clean office
Dr. Ephrat is just a really wonderful doctor. He spends an ample amount of time to answer all my questions and he's extremely knowledgeable and thorough. I'm really fortunate that he accepts my insurance because I can't imagine having to go to any other Doctor. He's one of the best!
the staff is always very nice and the check-in/out is super easy and quick.
Excellent doctor, great bedside manner! I called around 8 am and spoke to the answering service, and was told the office had an opening that day. We saw the doctor in a few hours and my 3-yr old daughter didn't have to miss another day of camp!
Would greatly recommend!
Dr. Portnoy examined my 11 month old with such care and patience. She took to him well and was more relaxed than I expected a little baby to behave with instruments being placed inside her ear. He also examined me the same day and really took his time to examine my hoarseness and answer every question with the same care as he gave my daughter. The staff was excellent and friendly. I had a very positive experience and highly recommend seeing Dr. Portnoy if you are looking for excellent care.
Dr. Portnoy treated my daughter with kindness and compassion as he asked and answered questions during her examination. She has been suffering with sinus headaches for quite some time, and was very concerned. Dr. Portnoy explained in detail exactly what he was doing, and why during the exam. His approach to addressing her problem was conservative, yet thorough. There is now a plan in place to help my daughter. The whole experience was pleasant, and I would highly recommend Dr. Portnoy .
Dr. Portnoy is amazing. I had my first visit with him yesterday. From the second I met him, I felt that he knew me for ten years. He is extremely kind, thorough, patient and very dedicated to his profession. He explained with a bedside manner that is very rare in todays medical field. All my fears and questions were answered in a reassuring comforting manner. His staff is just as professional guiding me through the procedures and making necessary arrangements for my procedure.
I had an incredible experience at Dr. Portnoy's office with everyone from the doctor himself to the nurses and office staff. Dr. Portnoy made my first visit to an ENT very comfortable and informative. He was pleasant and personable throughout the entire appointment and spent ample time with me. I was taken into my scheduled appointment very quickly and did not wait long at all. The office uses an electronic paperwork system that made checking in very efficient and easy. Thank you so much!!!
Dr. Portnoy is an amazing doctor who exceeds all expectations. I have been his patient for the last several years. I had surgery on my vocal cord and it was successful. I am so grateful to him and his staff for always being professional and accommodating. My daughter is his patient as well and now and I have recommended him to all of my friends and family. He is one of a kind.
Dr. Portnoy took the time to get to know my dad; as a person and as a patient. He made a connection with our family and showed empathy for our situation. He was very informative and made sure we understood the current condition and options for the future.
It had been a few years since my last visit with Dr.Ephrat and my recent visit showed me that time has not changed him. He is kind, caring, compassionate and extremely professional. You leave there with the feeling that you are his only patient because he never rushes and always performs a thorough examination. His entire staff is wonderful and very helpful.
Dr. Portnoy was an absolute pleasure! Saw me promptly and without delay; his bedside manner was remarkable; he was very thorough without being unnecessarily intrusive; and he is clearly an expert in his field. Doctor visits are never fun, but if you have to see an ENT, Dr. Portnoy is it. I truly felt better (physically and emotionally) after my visit. I can't say enough about this doctor.
I had been to a few doctors and they all told me I had asthma. I took the asthma pumps and nothing seemed to be working. Then I spoke with Dr. Safire and he mentioned that he thought I might have silent reflux. he then referred me to Dr. Portnoy , this was the best suggestion he could have given me. Dr. Portnoy was very thorough and kind when he was explaining that all my symptoms are normal and it could be because of what I am eating !! Finally a doctor with answers!! He is amazing!!
I have been a patient of Dr. Ephrat for many years, and he is far and away one of the best doctors I have ever met. He is a compassionate and caring person, extremely intelligent and a truly outstanding doctor. I count myself truly lucky to have found him.
Probably the best experience at a doctors office I've ever had. Dr. Mitzner was amazing and very thorough with explaining everything. He made me feel comfortable and was very personable. The staff and front desk are so nice and welcoming as well. Definitely recommended to others.
My family & I have been seeing Dr. Mitzner for a few years. I truly believe Dr. Mitzner is one of the best doctors out there! He is extremely professional & knowledgable. He really takes the time to treat you & doesn't rush on to his next patient.
My two children have seen him & they love him! He has such a wonderful demeanor with children and really puts them at ease.
The office staff is also extremely helpful and kind. Office mgr Francine will help anyway possible.
Excellent physician and person. Exemplary in every way.
Dr. Mitzner and Dr Ephram of this practice are both wonderful. They are kind and thorough.
Dr. Portnoy is one of the best dr.'s I've ever encountered. He performed tube surgery on my 2 year old and he made us as the parents as well as my daughter feel comfortable at all appts and before, during and after surgery with his wonderful bedside manner. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Portney was able to immediately identify my problem and explained the surgery procedure thoroughly. I did select him as my surgeon and it was totally successful and I am thrilled with my results. Dr. Portnoy and his staff followed up after my procedure, always having my comfort in mind. His staff is a reflection of his expertise and ethics. I would highly recommend the doctor and his caring staff.
I am very satisfied with the care I have received from Dr. Ephrat. He worked with me to develop a treatment plan that helped me overcome my ailment. Would definitely recommend!
Dr. Portnoy is excellent and so very patient and knowledgeable! He really put me at ease and always answers ALL of my questions! I had surgery with him to remove a vocal fold polyp and I was very nervous but he calmed me and reassured me that all would go well. He was right and is so amazing! Thank you Dr. Portnoy!
Dr. Portnoy saw my 5 year old son for an acute ear infection and impacted ear wax. My son was experiencing terrible pain. Dr. Portnoy put my son at ease and made him very comfortable. His advice/diagnosis helped immediately and I am very grateful. I would highly recommend Dr. Portnoy!!!
Dr. Mitzner has been my ENT doctor for quite some time now. It was a no brainer when I took my son to him in 2013. He took such good care of him and is AMAZING with kids. He makes you feel valued and takes his time explaining terms you might not understand. His staff is very friendly and I have NEVER met an office manager like his. Francine makes you feel valued as a patient. I would recommend him 100%!!!!
Dr.Portnoy is the most conscientious doctor I have ever encountered. He made sure I really understood the pros and cons of my options for treatments realistically. Dr.Portnoy made his recommendations for treatment by truly understanding my specific situation and took the time to answer all of my questions so I left feeling confident in following his recommendations. The office staff is extremely kind and helpful which made the overall experience even better.
I have had on-and-off sinus issues for years and finally scheduled a visit with Dr. Ephrat. It was determined that I had polyps and a deviated septum which was causing months-long blockage and, of course, disrupting sleep. Dr. Ephrat performed the surgery last month and I feel like a new person. It is so nice to be able to breathe freely! He removed all of the polyps and fixed my deviated septum and opened up my sinuses.
Dr. Ephrat has always be both caring and helpful. He listens to you and works to resolve you problem in a efficient and pleasant manner. As a result of his excellent service my Mom, Brother-in-law and niece are all currently his patients and the list of people we recommend continues to grow.
I am a 43y.o male & I had abnormally large tonsils & a deviated septum. Chronic sinus infections & migraines, restless legs, tension headaches along with Obstructive sleep apnea from the large tonsils have plagued me my entire adult life. We figured out the underlying cause of much of my problems were the tonsils etc. Dr.Schaeffer was a life changer. I had a Tonsillectomy, Septum & sinus Surgery. Professional, courteous efficient!!! An amazing surgeon, 4 wk recovery, but back to work in 7 days
Easy to fill out forms, electronic pad. As I have terrible handwriting, it was just a matter of clicking. Staff friendly. Dr. Portnoy very nice, good sense of humor.
Dr. Ephrat is not only a very excellent doctor, but also has a very calming presence about him. I would recommend anybody that needed a quality Ear, Nose and Throat doctor to go see Dr. Ephrat. I would like to add that Francine of that office has been wonderful to me as well over the years.
I was not at all happy with my experience with Dr. Safier. I took my 6 year old son because he's suffering from allergies. He asked me which medications I've given him for his symptoms, I said allegra and claritan. After the skin tests were done on my son we found out he's allergic to trees and grass I said what should I be giving him, he said just eye drops and a nose spray. I said that's it, no decongestants or antihistamines? His response.....well they didn't work before! Gee, thanks dr
Very caring and knowledgeable doctor. Made me feel comfortable, so that I could ask my questions. Did a thorough exam. I was very pleased.
From the moment we entered Dr. Schaeffer's office we were greeted by the staff in a warm professional manner. We were taken immediately and met with Dr. Schaeffer. My daughter had a broken nose and a deviated septum due to a car accident. Dr. Schaeffer was approachable, knowledgeable and empathetic toward my daughter. He explained the procedure and what would be expected after the surgery. He made us feel comfortable entrusting our daughter's well being in his hands to perform the surgery. We
I had sinus surgery with Dr. Ephrat 4 years ago, excellent experience. Great surgeon. Helpful and friendly staff. Definitely recommend this office in New Hyde Park.
Dr. Schaeffer's office is well run.I was able to get an urgent appointment almost immediately. The wait time to see the physician was approximately 10-15 minutes and I believe this is an average wait time.Dr. Schaeffer himself is a very pleasant man, he has a wonderful bedside manner. He makes it a point to listen to your questions and answers them with honesty. I am so happy that I chose Dr. Schaeffer to be by ENT as he has exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Dr. Schaeffer.
Been seeing him for a few years.Great ability, personality. Highly recommended !!!
Doctor Portnoy is not only an amazing Doctor but is an exceptional man...he is a knowledgeable, caring, patient and takes the time to answer any and all questions...the medical profession needs more doctors like Joel Portnoy!!!!
Recommended to doc from other doc had some serious issue and doc Portnoy was right there with me. He answered questions and lead me in the right path. Great doc all I can say is thanks dr Portnoy for helping me and always being ther!!!
I took my 4 year old son to see Dr Safeir. He is friendly,informative, and patient physician. His nursing staff I must say was not at all pleasant.
Dr. Portnoy is an incredible doctor. I had a procedure on my throat in his office. He did an amazing job and made me feel very comfortable throughout the visit.
