I had a consultation with Dr. Wakefield and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. She was polite, friendly and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend her for all of your ENT needs.
in Astoria, NY |
I have been to several ENT doctors over the years for the same procedure and Dr. Wakefield was my favorite. She explained what she was doing throughout the procedure and was very concerned about my comfort. She took her time and did not rush. I highly recommend her and will return in the future.
