What People Say About Dr. Thomas Viner, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

After a lifetime (I am 62 yrs old and my first surgery was when I was 2) of ENT visits, I can say without reservation that Dr Viner is the best one of them all. He is attentive, compassionate, and patient. He listens to you. I left my last doctor reluctantly because I watched him over the years be transformed from an attentive doctor to the clock - watching over-prescribing dispenser that is the typical of modern medicine today. Dr Viner has resisted all of that. He is a wonderful doctor.

I have no problem recommending this doctor. Dr. Viner is thorough, knowledgeable and soft spoken. Our family has been going to Dr. Viner for, at least, 25 years. He performed surgery on my daughter and me and explained everything in a manner that we could understand. He's a super nice doctor.

The best ENT I've ever seen, hands down. 've seen several ENT's over the years due to a chronic condition. Dr. Viner is a kind, compassionate and very thorough doctor. He spent an ample amount of time with me and put an excellent treatment plan in place. The only negative was the very unfriendly receptionist who checked us in.
