Brooklyn, NY |
Excellent bedside manor. Addressed my problem in a timely manor. Highly recommended.
in New Rochelle, NY |
Dr. Reisacher is the best, he always puts me at ease and takes care of what ails me, I’ve seen him for issues with my ears as well as my sinuses and he is equally knowledgeable. He is gentle in his approach and his technique for treating me. His bedside manner is great, he answers all your questions, he doesn’t overly complicate things when he talks to you and he never rushes you through the appointment. I am so happy he was recommended to me and I highly recommend him to you.
Mount Vernon |
I was glad I could have seen him in such a short time, he was friendly, and I am also glad I was able to get diagnose and got treatment
New York, NY |
He seems like a nice guy but really didn't seem to care too much about my complaints and helping me with it. Feel that way because he wished me good luck with the sinus surgery I had like it was done recently when in actuality it was done 25 years ago. Hard to believe he can't pay attention to detail, so it must be just the lack of interest.
New York, NY |
I had a hearing test and wanted to know how to read the results which I received after the test. He did not take the time to interpret the results of the test. When I said that the intern said the results of the test were similar to one I had two years ago, and that my hearing loss had stabilized, he said he wouldn't know because he did not have the results of the previous test in front of him. He could have easily looked it up on the computer. Only interested in leaving. Terrible experience.

I really like Dr. Reisacher! He was very personable and a great listener. I appreciated the fact he took the time to answer all of my questions and never made me feel rushed during my appointment. Would highly recommend him!
Bronx, NY |
Great doctor. Highly recommended. A+++
New York, NY |
Dr. Reisacher was assigned to me when I called for an appointment. I then naturally read his reviews and saw both negative and positive comments. He could not have been more friendly, attentive and responsive to my concerns, and I felt myself to be in expert hands. I liked him immediately. Now, if only I could afford those hearing aids!
New York, NY |
Professional, accessible, empathetic. 10/10!
in New York, NY |
Answers my concerns thoroughly.
in Forest Hills, NY |
Very punctual, pleasant and professional. Would definitely recommend. Very down to earth and easy to talk to
New York, NY |
If you're looking for a doctor who could not care less… Then this is your guy. It was really easy to schedule the appointment – now I know why.
in New York, NY |
I went in with what I thought to be the tail end of the flu. My head and ears were extremely clogged and I had swollen glands. Dr Reisacher looked in my ear for sec, recommended Afrin then scooted me out. I was there literally for less than 3 minutes and was charged $350, $100 more than what I was told on the phone. Still sick a week later, I went to another doctor who diagnosed me correctly and within hours showed drastic improvement with a simple antibiotic.
in New York, NY |
Good listener. Great bedside manner. That is quite important.
