He is an Excellent surgeon Dr Stewart has a masters in Public Health which is a comprehensive view on health care The best physician in ENT/Otolaryngology
in Brewster, NY |
Dr. Stewart is amazing! I was told by an ENT MD in Westchester that I had lost my hearing due to age which didn’t make sense to me since it happened so suddenly & in only one ear. Dr. Stewart listened to me and found the true problem & corrected it in one visit. I was beyond happy to be able to hear again out of that ear again.
New York, NY |
I highly recommend Dr. Stewart. He has always been the very model of professionalism, kind bedside manner, warmth and knowledgeability. He helped fix a sinus issue that had been plaguing me for decades. He was also receptive to working with another doctor who was treating me - the two working together did the trick, and my sinus problems are gone. You cannot do better than Dr. Stewart.

I have recommended him to both friends and family. Dr. Stewart is simply the best doctor you will ever have.
New York, NY |
As one can read from Dr. Stewart's many professional accolades and titles, he is a well-respected and renown ENT. I can confirm that what you read is absolutely the truth. Dr. Stewart is extremely knowledgable, to the point, and will only recommend what is needed. Having gotten endoscopic sinus surgery, as well as a septoplasty (both revisions of a previously poorly done procedure), I fully trusted Dr. Stewart's abilities and guidance. His office is also extremely professional and helpful.

Best doctor!
in Bayside, NY |
Dr. Michael Stewart has been treating me for over 6 years. He is a knowledgeable doctor, who listens intently to my concerns. My illnesses require me to receive Antineoplastic chemotherapy, therefore I visit him and doctors on my medical team every 3 months. Therefore, I can say with the sincerest honesty that I have the utmost trust in Dr. Stewart's abilities to treat me. I have grown to immensely respect the man and I appreciate how lucky I am to be under his care. Thank you, Dr. Stewart!

Dr. Stewart is extremely knowledgeable and very informative. He corrected a long time issue for me that no one could fix before.
in San Diego, CA |
I'm very fortunate Dr Stewart is my doctor. Mine was a complicated case that required a highly experienced & skilled doctor. Dr Stewart came highly recommended by my other doctors. YES! Dr. Stewart was able to help solve a 5 year chronic medical issue. His schedule is busy giving talks around the country but you never feel slighted. Between his ease in transversing time zones & his assistant/rock-star, Monica, he is always available, happy to talk to you & see you, always in a good mood, & kind
in Hyde Park, NY |
He tells you like it is in a way the average person can understand to me he is very skilled at what he does I travel 2 1/2 hours to see him
New York City, NY |
Dr. Stewart is knowledgeable, confident and seems to integrate not only physiological information but also the experiential information collected during the appointment. I feel really lucky and comforted to have the ability and opportunity to see a physician that is at the forefront of the field. It gives me hope that I will overcome this condition and move on with my life.
