ZERO STARS!!!! I would not recommend this doctor to my worse enemy. Office is disgustingly dirty. Staff is rude. No compassion for patients. I was literally crying in his office from a perforated ear drum and no one asked if I was ok...I just sat for 2 hours. I finally got up and told the receptionist that this wait was ridiculous and the Practitioner Mgr...as she called herself...told me to leave and go to the ER. She put me out even with all the noticeable pain!!! DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR!!!

Dr. Saporta offers the allergy therapy known as LDA. I am 59 and have suffered from asthma and allergies since I was a baby. I have had regular allergy shots for about 55 years. They helped some but I was always using my rescue inhaler and on multiple allergy drugs. Great for Big Pharma, but not for me. Since I have been on LDA, I no longer have asthma and never need an antihistamine. I have seen children become cured of their allergies especially the peanut allergies in a matter of years

Dr. Saporta is very knowledgeable about sinus issues and allergies. His staff, and the nurse practitioner, Nicole, is very helpful too! He and his staff have helped me recover from recurrent sinus infections. I highly recommend his office--it might not be he prettiest, but they are extremely knowledgeable and they work hard to help you feel better!

He was so rude! And just like the other reviewer said, took almost 2 hours to be seen for 5 minutes! So much for being considerate of the sick patients time. Just FYI, he has a website but surprise surprise, no place for reviews there. He must know how awful he is and not care. AND office is so small so I can hear what's going on with the other patients! All in all, rudeness, abrupt attitude, beyond dirty office would prompt me to never go back again. don't make my my mistake, STAY AWAY!!!

He was very inconsiderate toward me. I did not feel comfortable at all with him. And he seemed disheveled looking for an allergy "specialist." And the office is a joke, so tiny and dusty. Think he keeps it dirty to maintain his allergy business.
in Woodbridge, NJ |
Dr. Saporta is super knowledgable in many areas besides allergies. It turns out I'm one of his most severe cases! I've been to A LOT of doctors and Saporta actually tries to help you. He's super busy and doesn't remember you half the time. But if you come prepared with questions and concerns he will answer them all. He is very busy so it does feel like you are rushed but just come prepared. The staff is great some days and sometimes they're not. If your appt is with the dr wait is 3min-2hrs
Roselle, NJ |
The staff in this tiny office is very rude. They are very disrespectful and the office is very small. In specific, the staff gives a lot of attitude and his wife is also very unprofessional and very rude to the people who go there. I would not recommend this place to any of my friends, the service here is terrible.
Horrible. Very rude and abrupt with you. Not to mention the incredibly small office. You can hear everything going on with other patients treatment! Office is pretty messy too, i don't know how he claims to specialize in allergy treatment yet can't keep the office clean enough to ensure patient allergen protection. Absurd, go elsewhere.

He was absolutely inconsiderate of my time. I had an appointment for 3 and did not get seen till 4pm. when he saw me, it was for 5 minutes only! he kept pitching an allergy shot and was no longer interested in me when i asked for other less extreme options. his staff was very rude as well. its a teeny tiny office so you can basically hear everything they talk aboit, including other patients! that is a clear privacy violation im surprised they have not gotten in trouble for yet. stay away!
