Would not recommend to anyone and will not return

On my recent visit I found Doctor Aferzon to take time his with me and be very thorough. He put me at ease. I would highly recommend him.

Excellent Doctor. He is my go to ENT for my whole family.

I saw Dr. Aferzon for persistent hearing loss after getting sick while on vacation. My regular doctor had given me antibiotics and nasal sprays but they did not help. After examining me and checking my hearing, Dr. Aferzon told me I had ear fluid. He put a tube in my ear and drained the fluid and now my hearing is back to normal. He told me the tube would stay in for several months and I should avoid getting water in my ear. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions.

I first came to see Dr. Aferzon 6 months ago after dealing with endless sinus infections most of my adult life. After years of taking antibiotics I decided to go for the Sinus Balloon procedure. It only took about one and a half hours under a mild sedation done in office. It has been five months now and I have not had a single sinus infection. I highly recommend Dr. Aferzon and this procedure to anyone sick of dealing with endless medicine and infections.

I noticed a lump below my ear several months ago. It persisted despite being given antibiotics and steroids. I saw Dr. Aferzon and after having a biopsy and cat scan he told me it was a parotid tumor. I had the tumor removed and am doing well. The scar has healed well (barely visible) and he was very caring before and after surgery. I have since recommended him to my family.

After suffering with sinus infections for years, I finally saw an ENT. Dr. Aferzon was wonderful and always took time to answer my questions. He performed sinus balloon surgery and straightened my septum in his office. There was some discomfort during the procedure, but it was tolerable. The surgery was last month and I can finally breath well.

Dr. Aferzon performed a sinus surgery on me in his office July 2015. He botched it up. I just had the correct surgery under anesthesia in a hospital with a phenomenal ENT and she said there was tons of scar tissue and damage from the job he did. He has ZERO bedside manner. Anytime I would ask something during a visit he literally said "Shush" while he looked on his laptop and waved his hand at me as if to dismiss me. I regret ever going there and have warned everyone I know to steer clear

I saw Dr. Aferzon for dizziness after going to 2 ERs. After doing a whole bunch of tests they told me to see and ENT. He checked my ears and did a hearing test. Then he did a dizzy exercise that cured my vertigo. No more dizziness. Highly recommend him.
in Stratford, CT |
I understand this doctor is just trying to do his job but he does a horrible job at it. During my consultation he asked me closed ended questions and as I tried telling him my history with my health I'm guessing he just didn't want to hear because he would talk over me. He was rushing as if he wanted to get over with my consultation asap.
in Seymour, CT |
Had to wait over an hour and then when I finally was seen he did not listen to what I had to say/explain what my symptoms were.
in Shelton, CT |
I would never recommend this doctor. I felt as if I was an inconvenience to him by being there. Good luck trying to finish a sentence. Never even addressed the issue I came in with. Did some quick looks and sent me off with a photocopy paper on TMJ. NO patience, no compassion. Acted as if he could care less. Just a jerk.
