I underwent a total thyroidectomy (which was quite complex) and subsequent vocal cord surgery, both within the last 6 months. In my opinion, Dr. Hiltzik is a true miracle worker! I have not felt this healthy in years. He is not only a phenomenal surgeon but is compassionate and extremely patient. I never felt rushed or unheard at any of my many appointments. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Hiltzik and I am forever greateful to him.

After waiting 3 months to get an appointment they called to reschedule for another 2 weeks. Got to office at our scheduled time and there was standing room only with patients visibly upset ad agitated. There was even a man cursing using 4 letter words because he was waiting so long. Ended up leaving after hearing it was an hour and a half wait. Staff was not friendly and looked miserable. Think I’ll find another doctor.

Dr Hiltzik is one of the most prominent ENT Physicians in his field and time. His knowledge base is endless and comes naturally . He articulates what needs to be communicated better then any lawyer . He won't steer you towards his pocket . Extremely honest . Regular family man that just so happened to become one of the elite physicians in The north eastern USA. If you can't trust this doctor you don't trust anyone. As far as his staff . In regards to his manhattan office .They are all tier 1

Words cant say how amazing my consultation and surgery w/Dr H went or how happy I am today. Im 37 and lived with enlarged tonsils, tonsillitis and a badly deviated septum all my life. I was super motivated to find a doctor that listened, saw and acted on facts. Dr H did that and booked my surgery that day. I expected the very worst in recovery but I was able to talk and eat hours after surgery! Today is Day 8 of recovery, had my nose splints out and I feel like a new person! Thank you Dr H!

Unfortunately I have to rate Dr Hiltzik a 1 because the wait time is ALWAYS ALWAYS 2 to 2 1/2 hrs!! There isn't enough room in the waiting room AND they double book to no end..it's ineffective and inconsiderate of patients time!
