Dr. Wei is exceptional! I originally scheduled an appointment with Dr. Wei for my chronic sinus infection and he did a CT scan of my head to see what was going on. After reviewing everything, it was clear I was agreat candidate for a septoplasty and sinus surgery. Dr. Wei is patient, thorough and took the time to show me where my issues were, why I was having chronic problems and what I could expect from surgery. He showed me examples of post-surgery results and explained everything to me in detail. I actually completed the surgery this week and am recovering now. Dr. Wei and the team at Mt. Sinai - St. Luke's were exceptional. I was treated well by all of the staff there, everything was on time, very efficient, and only several days later the straws and packing were removed easily. I can already feel a huge difference even though I know I have a lot more healing to do before the results are optimal. I am someone that appreciates attention to detail and I can tell he did a great job, paying specific attention to what I individually needed done to get the best results. Aside from Dr. Wei's patience and attention to detail, he also has a great sense of humor, is a great communicator and works with the utmost professionalism. If you are looking for an exceptional ENT Doctor, choose Dr. Wei!

Dr. Wei was excellent. Office was crowded, but I was seen on time. He listened carefully to my problems, did a few procedures, and explained exactly what was going on for me. A few treatment options were recommended and we decidedon a course of action for the next two weeks. Dr. Wei even helped expedite my departure by sending my prescription to my pharmacy on his tablet while I was waiting on line to setup a follow-up.

I would like to say this was probably one of the best doctor visits I've been to. I got to see the doctor within 10 minutes and not only did Dr. Wei seem extremely knowledgeable but he really took the timeto explain everything to me. He showed me the CT scans and explain the various different options that I have ranging from the recommended approach to the more aggressive methods. I would highly recommend going to him again.

Dr. Wei was very sweet, professional, and to-the-point. He had a good combination of empathetic bedside manner as well as succinct, clear explanations and directions. He was able to diagnose my issue that had gone undetected with other doctorsand a previous ENT (deviated septum, as well as a sinus infection). I highly recommend coming here earlier than your appointment time to make sure that all paperwork is filled out. FYI: his office is on the 10th floor. There is scaffolding, but navigating the building is fine.

I came to see Dr. Wei when I needed and ENT to check one of my ears that suddenly had diminished hearing and seemed clogged. I was luck to get an appointment right away. The doctor is very pleasant and attentiveto your concerns. He moves fast and yet you know that he pays attention and provides you with the proper care that you require. I would recommend him if you needed an ENT doctor.
