Why would I drive 45 minutes to see a physician when there are plenty near where I live in Nassau County? The answer is simple. Dr. Zaretsky is the best! She is professional and very thorough. Additionally, she attempts to see you as close to the appointment time as possible. Of all the specialists I've gone to throughout the years I'm most confident when I leave her office because I know that she has factored into her thinking my past history and complaints. The best is worth the trip.

I recently saw a negative review for Dr. Zaretsky which I was a bit surprised to see. I've been taking my daughter there for 3 years now for chronic ear issues and trust that Dr. Zaretsky will always do right by my daughter. She always talks about "if she were my child I would..." which makes me feel much more comfortable about some difficult decisions we have to make as parents on what is the best them. I trust that my daughter is in good hands with Dr. Zaretsky.

Dr. Zaretsky is an amazing ENT surgeon! I had sinus problems for many years. She recommended sinus surgery because she saw that my right sinus was very impacted. I am very pleased with the results, the best being no more painful headaches! I had been to many other ENT professionals and allergy doctors over the years and no one took the interest and the time to do what Dr. Zaretsky did for me. She is extremely caring and compassionate and I recommend her to all my family and friends.

Dr.Zaretsky rocks! She is extremely knowledgeable and cares about her patients' results. The surgery she performed changed my life and ended the need for antibiotics. (She cured my chronic sinusitis.) I am unable to express my gratitude and appreciation for Dr. Zaretsky.

Thanks to Dr. Zaretsky's request for brain MRI 5 years ago, a meningioma was found and removed 1/5/16. Without this MRI, the tumor would have continued to grow eventually impacting my memory and personality.
