He is an advocate for adults and children who are hard of hearing and he supports hearing testing for newborns. In addition to his positon at Summit Medical Group, he is Clinical Associate Professor of Otolaryngology at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark. A sought-after speaker, Dr. Kwartler has delivered local, national, and international invited presentations and taught courses concerning acoustic neuroma surgery, age-related hearing loss, hearing loss prevention, hearing rehabilitation, and the latest surgical treatments for profoundly deaf children and adults. He serves on international panels that evaluate the latest implantable and semi-implantable hearing devices. He also is integral in helping develop novel medical and surgical treatments for common ear problems. Past President of the New Jersey Academy of Otolaryngology, Dr. Kwartler is a member of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, New Jersey State Hearing Evaluation Council, North American Skull Base Surgery Society, American Neurotology Society, and New Jersey Speech, Language, and Hearing Association. He has been an advisor to the organization, Hearing Education Awareness for Rockers (HEAR). Dr. Kwartler is the recipient of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Certificate of Honor. He is the only New Jersey otologist included in New York magazine's 'Best Doctors in New York' and he is listed in Castle Connolly's 'Top Doctors in the New York Metro Area,' and Castle Connolly's 'America's Top Doctors.' Dr. Kwartler notes that 'listening carefully leads to a deeper understanding of a patient's apparent and deeper concerns. Being a good listener makes me a better doctor. I want to treat my patients the way I would like to be treated.'"
