Patient Comments (9)
in Oceanside, NY |
Needed the same day appointment and i was not a patient of Dr. Genack. Chances are usually slim, especially with good specialists. But they made it happen. Since i was practically a "walk-in" patient, i expected long wait, but was invited very soon after filling out the forms. The doctor is great, friendly and highly professional. The procedure was done within minutes. Then an audio specialist thoroughly checked my hearing putting me in the sound-insulated room. Overall, a wonderful experience!
Dr Genack is extremely knowledgeable. His examination was thorough and complete. After a full exam he diagnosed the problem (BPV) and treated my condition. The treatment performed resolved my problem. He answered all my questions. However, he was a bit abrupt when I was telling him about past experiences with my condition - he only wanted answers to the questions he was asking and was not at all interested in my previous issues, but I can deal with a little attitude because he is that good !

I was visiting I now NY and developed blockages in both ears. I needed to fly home and came to Dr. Genack for advise. He advised treatment. He preformed the procedure and I flew home with no problems. I appreciate that Dr. Genack fit me into his busy schedule on very short notice. He treated me as if I was a long-time patient and not someone he would not like see again. He carefully explained the options and treatment.

I couldn't be more happy with my results. I had a very complicated issue with my deviated septum which required extensive surgery that took around 5 hours. Dr. Genack explained the process step by step and took the time and care along the way. It's been 8 days since my surgery and I'm extremely pleased with the outcome! Very slight discomfort first couple days and minor bruising. My breathing is so much better now and I look great!! Thanks Dr. Genack for all your hard work and care.
