    Dr. Smouha is a unique practitioner in this day of managed care. I was so fortunate to have him as a choice in my Cigna PPO! Not only did my hearing get restored to 100% after he did my stapedectomy, he proved he CARED about me and my treatment from initial consultation to surgery to my final visit with him today. I would strongly recommend Dr. Smouha to anyone that needs an experienced and compassionate surgeon for their procedure.

    I had a previous surgery six years ago, but when performed by Dr. Smouha, the surgery was night and day. I had no pain close to the extent by a fellow Dr. The bed side manners were beyond comforting. I was extremely impressed by his attention to me as well as his follow ups. I wouldn't see another Dr. based on my experience.

    Dr Smouha is an excellent doctor in every aspect. He executed a complicated surgery of removing cholesteatoma from my ear and the surgery went very well and I am in minimal pain the day after.He was very informative and made me and my parents very comfortable. The surgery runs many risks such as deafness paralysis etc..but he was able to execute without any issues and completly remove the disease. I highly recommend Dr Smouha and the nurses, anesthesiologists and staff of MT SINAI. TOP NOTCH!!
