      Smart, kind, flexible, great guy in person, humanistic, down to earth, seems flexible and has a great assistant Reba who is helpful. I’m told the tracheotomy itself is very good so appreciate excellent surgical skills At discharge, NYH did not give us tracheotomy instructions or educate us about different tracks but not his fault.

      I know Dr Tassler when I was diagnosed with Neck mass at ENT Clinic. Dr Tassler is an excellent, professional, and highly skilled doctor, after CT scan, he told me, he saw the mass, but he doesn't know what it is, until remove it to see. I have surgery couple days ago, Dr Tassler perform the procedure successfully, excision of the right carotid sheath mass, waiting for the cervical lymph node biopsy results, and also waiting to be discharged today. Dr Tassler: his team, staff and Nurses are very friendly, care, they talked to you with respect, always smile on the face, very courteous. Thank you very much for accepting to perform the surgery despite others objects and in the middle of the pandemic, I really appreciate it

      I found Dr. Tassler warm and inviting. As a new patient, he immediately put me at ease. I felt safe especially with the measures he and his office staff took during this pandemic. He was thorough in his exam and asked detailed and situational questions to assess possible reasons for my condition. He gave me a spectrum of possible diagnosis and treatment based on the results of tests he was scheduling for me. He explained the tests and next steps to determine the plan for further treatment based on test results.

      I was referred to Dr. Tassler by my physician. Dr Tassler's coordinator contacted me within one hour and I was seen the next day at nine in the morning. I found Dr. Tassler to be very calming and engaging and he was extremely attentive and very thorough in his examination. We discussed his findings and plans for a follow up visit. I left his office feeling much calmer and secure in the fact that I was seen by a top notch doctor. I would highly recommend Dr. Tesslar to anyone who needs his service. I totally trust his expertise and judgement.
