What more can I say about this guy. He was punctual, relatable, well spoken & professional enough to meet me on my level as to communicate things so I understood them. I happen to be the kind of person that likes to know things in detail to become a wiser human being for the future (especially with my health). Not only did he do the proper testing which I felt was absolutely necessary moving forward, but he alleviated my concerns at every turn with each question I asked. I have offices that a

Dr. Mukhija has a warm, kind and caring demeanor. During both of my office visits he put me at ease immediately. He took the time to explain what my symptoms meant and explained the likely cause. He then gave me a course of treatment to follow always listening to my questions and answering in kind. I would recommend Dr. Mukhija without hesitation.

My elderly mom, who has dementia, saw her GP for her checkup and was told to see an ENT to clear up a hearing concern. I called around for an appointment without much luck. Called ENT and Allergy Associates in Melville and the folks there could not have been more helpful. From the receptionist who squeezed us in the next day to the nurses, to Dr Mukhija, they were all professional, helpful and kind. Dr. Mukhija could not have been more patient and kind to my mom. We left happy with my mom well.

I brought my 2-month old son to Dr. Mukhija to have his tongue tie evaluated and subsequently snipped. Dr. Mukhija was very personable and explained the process to myself and my husband thoroughly. He made a heart-wrenching process for a mom as smooth and as quick as possible, and I would definitely and highly recommend him to any friends and family.
Brooklyn, NY |
I saw Dr. M in his new office and I'm glad that I was able to follow him from his old practice. He did my sinus surgery several years ago and I have been a whole new person since then. He explained everything including what options I had and what to expect from surgery. He was spot on. I can breathe well and haven't had a sinus infection or headache. Thanks Dr. M!!

in Far Rockaway, NY |
All my life I had issues breathing, along with the migraines and snoring. I made an appointment with my primary doctor Juliana, she recommend me to Dr. Mukhija, I schedule an appointment with Dr Mukhija. When I arrived to his office in 401 franklin ave, the nurses and assistance were friendly. He examined my nostrils and found out that I had a deviated septum. And that surgery would be the best option to fix it. My surgery was a success and now I can breath better. Thank you Dr Mukhija.
