Dr. Belafsky is a talented and professional doctor with an excellent staff. Beyond his skills he is kind and attentive to his patients. I am blessed to have him alleviate my tracheal stenosis and his utilization of the latest treatments available for my particular needs.

After discovering a tumor in my trachea that was cutting off 90% of my airway, I was unable to find a doctor who would touch me. Dr. Belafsky stepped up and gladly took on the challenge of saving my life... and he succeed with the utmost tender and loving care. His level of knowledge and experience is unmatched, and his bedside manner is absolutely outstanding. He genuinely makes me feel like he cares about my well being and takes the time to answer all my questions. Literally the best doctor!

I have seen Dr. Belafsky for a number of years for a vocal cord disorder, spasmodic dysphonia. Dr. Belafsky is a very fine physician and I would highly recommend him. He is sensitive, kind, listens carefully and responds with clear explanations and offers of options. Even when obviously very busy, he is friendly and personable/

I've suffered from a voice problem for 12 years. Every specialist I saw over many years told me my voice deterioration was due to acid reflux. Medications for acid reflux never provided any relief. Finally I found Dr Belafsky. He listened carefully to my problem, examined me very thoroughly, explained his diagnosis in detail and proposed a treatment which has returned my voice to normal. I can't thank him enough or recommend him highly enough.

Dr. Belafsky is caring, understanding, knowledgeable and has a great bedside manner. He and his caring team have taken great care of me since I was diagnosed with spasmodic dysphonia over four years ago. The treatments I receive literally changed my life and gave me back the confidence I had lost. I will probably need these treatments for the rest of my life to keep my voice strong but I don't mind because Dr. Belafsky and his team take such good care of me.

Dr Belafsky has taken exceptional care of me for over 3 years. I had a larynxectomy, was on a feeding tube and was unable to speak. He has performed numerous procedures that have enabled me to eat, remove the feeding tube and to talk. I owe my quality of life to Dr Belafsky and his wonderful caring staff
