Everyone from the doctor, nurses and office staff has been very professional, courteous, informative, friendly and helpful in all aspects. They have helped me tremendously with my problem. I can finally breathe normally. Would absolutely recommend this doctor/office. Thank you everyone!

I am so happy I found Dr. Tartell! I have suffered for years from vertigo, but have never been professionally diagnosed. Dr. Tartell diagnosed me with vertigo, and assured me that it was very treatable. We did some exercises in the office, and I felt great! His staff was wonderful - the assistant at the front desk was warm, and friendly, and his medical staff made me feel comfortable and at ease. I am so sorry I didn't find Dr. Tartell sooner -- I am feeling great thanks to him and his team

I was recommended by a co-worker and it was the best thing she could have told me. I have been coming here for 2 years plus and I love the staff. Jenna, Ms. Sharon, Carolina, Ms. Damaris my new friend at the check in desk. Dr. Tartell is the best, he explains your ailments and the procedures being done to you, expertly, where you can understand. I love it, and drive all the way from Opa-Locka to get here. Would not go anywhere else.

Dr. Tartell and his staff are caring, professional, efficient and considerate to all my health issues. I have recommended to my niece and her mother and both were extremely pleased. My visits at his office are always pleasant and friendly.
in Dallas, TX |
Outstanding medical facility. As a patient with allergies Dr. Tartell and staff diagnosed my allergies and started a cure and eventually discovered my throat cancer and saved my life. My cancer was eliminated by a doctor at the University of Miami, Dr. David Arnold. I was given 90 days to live in October 2009. I am cured and alive today.
Dr. Tartell is an excellent physician! Incredibly knowledgeable, compassionate, and highly moral. Would recommend to anyone in need of an ENT!
I am a new patient of Dr. Tartell and can happily say that I am comfortable with him so far. His office makes scheduling appointments simple and his receptionist is friendly towards me. I never feel unwelcome or rushed. The wait time is normally 15 minutes, which is understandable. Dr. Tartell never has a problem answering my questions and leaving me with accurate diagnoses. I highly recommend him as a medical professional!
in Port Richey, FL |
Dr. Tartell has been wonderful throughout this process. I have been a patient of his for over 3 years now and can't say anything negative about my experience here. I have felt like a part of the family since I first signed up and started coming here. Dr. Tartell is a well rounded doctor that is not only knowledgeable and trustworthy, but he is understanding and willing to go the extra mile for his patients. I highly recommend him.

Excellent care and service. I have recommended Dr. Paul Tartell to friends and family as they treat me like family here.
in Miami, FL |
Dr. Tartell and his staff are exceptional. My husband has sinus surgery with another ENT and we spent over $2,000 for no reason because the surgery did nothing to improve his situation. We found Dr. Tartell and he was able to correct his problem without surgery in the office!! I now see him to and we both feel much better. He is God-sent.

in Plantation, FL |
The staff and Dr. Tartell were great! First I saw his PA who did an amazing job getting all my medical history and physical. I also received a hearing and allergy test. Dr. Tartell was very thorough and took his time during my visit. I did not feel rush at all! Loved the office and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I've been with Dr. Tartell for several years.
in Boca Raton, FL |
Wow! What an exceptional experience. Most professional office staff and most comprehensive exam I've ever received! Highly recommended! Dr. Tartell's ethics and professionalism should be a model of how Healthcare in this country needs to be re-implemented.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Dr Tartell and staff are phenomenal. Dr Tartell one of the best doctors I have ever been to. He genuinely cares and takes the time to explain everything in detail. I highly recommend him. The staff is wonderful as well!
in Fort Lauderdale, FL |
Dr. Tartell did not address my concern, but instead asked me to return in a couple weeks if it did not improve. He knew my primary doctor had been watching this issue for months, before referring me. In addition, Dr. Tartell's office billed my insurance for surgery and multiple procedures when he only looked at a bump, without touching, scraping or testing it.
