Dr. Bough performed my daughter's tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, and myringotomy with tubes in 2017. He was professional and made us feel comfortable with all the questions and any concerns I had about the surgical procedures. He is also very nice to my 3-year-old daughter so would recommend him as a pediatric ENT. We trust him and would highly recommend him as an ENT overall.

Dr. Bough has performed two surgical procedures on my son. He is a great doctor. Knowledeable, professional, great bedside manner! I would recommend Dr. Bough to anyone who is looking for a great ENT.

After suffering a traumatic brain injury, Dr Bough was able to work with me to resolve the debilitating vertigo that was a aftermath of the brain injury. After working with Dr. Bough for a month I was able to walk without a cane and now 4 months later I ran my first 3 miles! Dr. Bough continues to work through other ENT side effects with such comprehensive strategies yet with compassion of the mental side effects of this type of injury.

Dr. Bough is highly skilled and professional, with great bedside manner. Office runs smoothly and efficiently!

He came to me at 3:00 AM in the ER at Valley Hospital and was very comforting and calming. He continued to see for several weeks thereafter. Dr. Bough is an excellent, caring and comforting physician and I highly recommend him.

Before Dr Bough we saw 3 ENT's for my now 10 yr old and everyone said something that didnt make any sense at all and they all said different stuff. Once we saw Dr Bough he was so patient and kind and professional and knew what he was taking about. I would recommend him in a heartbeat for children and adults as well. These kind of doctors are hard to find now days. THANK YOU!
Closter, NJ |
Dr. Bough is patient and kind. Helped my daughter in an emergency situation and we avoided the ER. Very professional and knowledgeable.
in Oradell, NJ |
My 5 year old needed her adenoids removed and tubes put in her ears. Dr. Bough did an amazing job. I was expecting a horrible recovery and she was back to herself that night! Procedure was quick and he explained everything slowly. Since the surgery she is like a different kid. So glad we decided to do the procedure.
in Paramus, NJ |
Dr. Bough is not only very skilled but he has exceptional bed side manner. He is sure to explain everything and works with you; he is sure to get your input and agreement. I appreciate working with the doctor and being involved. I had nose surgey to correct a deviated septum; results were fantastic. All good from consult, pre-op, surgery, and post-op. Staff and nurses were excellent as well.
in Paramus, NJ |
Also this physician lacks compassion and gives no help to any patient it's all about getting you in and getting you out as fast as possible. I did not know they are Phycologists they should change there practice. I would never recommend anyone to this practice be aware.
in Nyack, NY |
Dr. Bough is a brilliant doctor with a great bed side manor. From my first appointment at the West Nyack location I was treated with respect and courtesy. They were all very patient and understanding. Dr. Bough explained everything to me about my condition and what to expect pre and post-op. He allowed me to ask as many questions as I needed and he did not make me feel like it was a problem that I asked. He was happy to answer all my question. I would definitely recommend Dr. Bough.
in Bergenfield, NJ |
Dr. Bough performed a very difficult and precise surgery regarding my parathyroid glands that required a delicate operation around my vocal cords. I am completely satisfied with Dr. Bough and his staff and would highly recommend him. His care, knowledge and professionalism is top notch! Thank you Dr. Bough!
