Hi, and thanks for visiting my website!

I am a pediatric ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist in New York City, with office hours in northern New Jersey as well. This site provides information about my practice, as well as educational material about common childhood ENT conditions. New patients may save time by filling out
the registration forms in advance, and bringing them to the first appointment. You can also request an appointment online.

I welcome
general questions about these problems from any site visitors, although I cannot make a specific recommendation about anyone that I have not seen. I have been doing my best to answer these questions for thousands of online correspondents from around the world since 1998.

Families of established patients in my practice can also
communicate with me through this site, or download educational materials and office forms, including our notice of privacy practices. While I encourage online contact, my telephone line is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Please feel free to call if you need to contact me urgently.

During these difficult times, I am doing my best to care for my patients while limiting the spread of the COVID-19 virus. After the shelter-in-place advisories from federal and state authorities in March, we started doing telemedicine consultation for routine follow up visits and non-urgent matters. While I can’t directly test hearing, or examine the interior of the ear or the nose in this way, many patients found that this was helpful in many situations, and there are options for more comprehensive remote evaluation.

Furthermore, I am now seeing patients in the office while
following guidelines to keep my patients, their families and my staff safe. Of course, it will always be an individual decision whether or not to come in for an in-person visit, as different people have different underlying risk factors and/or concerns. Feel free to call to discuss which sort of evaluation would be best for your family. If you would prefer to schedule a telemedicine visit to limit your exposure, that is still appropriate in many cases.

If you or your child has a new onset of a fever, cough or shortness of breath, you should contact your primary care doctor. As you probably know, lab testing for children is limited in availability, and the proper treatment for the majority of cases is to monitor at home and self quarantine for two weeks. Patients needing more aggressive medical care are generally those with pneumonia and respiratory failure, or those at risk for this complication due to underlying health issues.
This online assessment tool is a very useful way to use the CDC guidelines to help you determine your own (or a family member's) risk, and to take appropriate steps.

I appreciate your working with me to help keep our community healthy!
