Dr. Sclafani was great, he took the time to describe the procedures, the outcomes, the projected image once healing was complete. Worked with me to make sure my questions were answered and was not rushed at all. Excellent visit and would highly recommend. He appears to be well-integrated into the research and up-to-date. A quality that one would want in any doctor. Highly recommended!

Dr. Sclafani examined the interior of my nose and explained clearly what was my condition, the reasons, my possible symptoms, and what the treatment goals. I felt totally reassured. He is so pleasant.

I went to Dr. Scalfani for a second opinion. His candor was refreshing. Although he is not the doctor to treat my condition, he was kind enough to ask me to follow-up with him in the event the doctor of first opinion did not work out. The description of his practice on ZocDoc is misleading -- he is primarily a plastic surgeon, not a regular ENT, though his skills encompass that specialty.

Was kind of dismissive, didn't seem to be very interested in helping me. I didn't feel he was very sympathetic to my condition. Felt rushed, and was referred to his "sinus specialist". I thought you were the sinus specialist?

Cosmetic surgery is a very personal private matter. I have friends who have been to plastic surgeons who were "salesman" instead of professionals. Dr Sclafani is totally professional and HONEST. He did not sell, quite the contrary, he told me to think it over and not rush. He also advised which procedures for my problem are would NOT make me happy. We need more professional like this.

Not what I would expect from the world renowned NYEE hospital. Rushed, didn't go over any of the medical history forms, no video record or pictures from the procedure (ent scope), no suggestions for the symptoms/issue.
