I can not say enough about Dr Kenneth Zuckerman! I have seen him a couple times now for two different issues. Not only is he very skilled and knowledgeable at his specialty but he is kind and communicates well when explaining the medical problem at hand. After doing much research years ago and personally visiting Dr Zuckerman, I would choose him time and time again for any ENT concern! I do wish scheduling could improve - Dr Zuckerman is always booked. If it is not an emergency the wait is worth it though!

He literally saved my 90yo Mother's life. He's kind, caring, brilliant, talented and her case, geniusly (yes, it's a word) thought out of the box! Please know that I rarely, if ever proffer recommendations - and when I do, it's because I'd bet my life on it. Bette and Paul Doremus
