Verified Patient Reviews
She was very nice and gave me options really explained things clearly. Did ultrasound and put camera down my throat, reassured me things were not as bad as I had thought.
Dr. Sinclair was very professional and explained to me everything I had to know. She was easy on the hand as well. I would recommend her to anyone who needs an ENT. Also, the space was very clean with up to date equipment.
Very knowledgeable and kind doctor. She took the time to understand all of my health issues and thoroughly examined me. She also gave a very detailed explanation of everything including treatment. She was very helpful and friendly.
Professional and fast. Highly knowledgable and pleasant demeanor.
Dr.Sinclair lived up to her reviews! She was extremely polite and attentive. She made detailed notations of all my concerns and tried her best to address them. She assured me that things weren't as bad as I originally assumed but also let me know that I was more than welcomed to come back if my discomfort doesn't let up in the next few weeks. I wish that I could use her for all of my medical needs!
Dr. Sinclair is Very caring and understanding. She took her time to hear me out and I felt that she truly was concerned.
LOVE and She is very patient.
I have been Dr Sinclair's patient since January 2015, and have seen her subsequently for follow-up. She is a wonderful practitioner, very pleasant and low-key, no drama, gentle, explains everything, and has a just a lovely way about her. And on the technical side, she is amazingly skilled, and provides first-class and friendly treatment. Clearly, she cares a lot about her patients. Her office and nurse - Kourtney and Karlene - are also fabulous, and have themselves arranged appointments for me with other professionals as needed. They are all so pleasant, and so nice - it's a pleasure to go there. Addendum: I had an appointment there this morning, and just as I'm writing this review, Dr Sinclair called me with results and recommendations. I couldn't ask for a better practitioner and recommend her wholeheartedly.
Dr. Sinclair and her staff are warm, professional and very good at their jobs. I was called pretty much right after my paperwork was filled out, and she was in the room within 5 minutes of my arrival. She asked all the right questions, and diagnosed the problem quickly, giving me the treatment right then and there. I was in and out in under 30 minutes. She clearly cares about her patients and their well-being. Great experience!
Dr. Sinclair was just excellent. Couldn't recommend more highly.
She was fabulous. Very personable. Made me feel very comfortable about my issue.
Wonderful Doctor. Great bedside manner. Very knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
I would gladly recommend Dr. Sinclair to friends and family. I was running a little late to our appointment but I was promptly attended upon arrival. I had some concerns/worries and she patiently heard me out and addressed my concerns. She ran some tests while explaining what she was looking for and after assessing the results, she laid my concerns to rest. Dr. Sinclair then recommended that I follow up with another doctor to potentially find the root cause of something that was bothering me, the recommendation made sense. Dr. Sinclair was great!
Dr. Sinclair was amazing. She was knowledgable, warm, and incredibly attentive. My visit with her was easily the best I've had with any doctor due to her fantastic bedside manner, and unlike with other doctors, I didn't feel rushed out the door. I wish more doctors were like her, and I would recommend her to anyone. 5 stars!
Very knowledgable with a warm, pleasant demeanor. Answered my questions patiently and gave me a lot of insight on some chronic issues, such as treatments in development that would benefit me in the future. Highly recommended.
Dr. Sinclair is very knowledgeable, kind and patient. She is one of the most caring doctors I have met!
She might be my new favorite doctor. My appt was at 10:55 and I was sitting with her at 11am. That's extremely prompt, which I appreciate. She was very personable and listened to all of my concerns. Hands down one of the best bedside manners I've come across in a long time. She has a very pleasant personality and put me at ease with her demeanor and knowledge. I didn't feel rushed, but she was very efficient. Didn't push any prescriptions and clearly explained my options. I would highly recommend.
She was very sweet and professional. Thanks!
Great timely service
Very positive experience
Dr. Sinclair was very thorough, knowledgeable and caring. I am glad that I found her and would highly recommend her.
Dr. Sinclair was amazing. I recently needed my tonsils out and had a hard time finding a doctor with an open schedule. In my first appointment she was the first Doctor who made me feel like they actually cared about my wellness and the steps I needed to take to get there. The surgery was quick and easy and when I had a reaction to medicine she was very easy to get in contact with! I needed to get in contact with her about 4 times in the first couple days and she was so sweet and supportive and made sure I got what I needed. I can not recommend anyone more!
Dr. Sinclair was absolutely wonderful - in good spirits and yet very professional. She made me feel comfortable and took care of my issue right away. The only star I would deduct ist for the location - it is not exactly a nice waiting area and gets lots of traffic as it is located in a hospital building.
I was extremely pleased with my visit. Dr. Sinclair was extremely attentive, and showed she really cared. She is wonderful.
Dr. Sinclair was very courteous, thorough and professional.
So cool, very professional. I highly recommend dr. Sinclair!
Catherine was absolutely amazing. I went in thinking I had an ear infection because I couldn't hear on one side and after being misdiagnosed by another doctor, she knew exactly what was wrong and fixed it right away. She's very attentive and nice. I'd highly recommend her. Thanks Catherine!
She was wonderful!!! Fixed my problem and was so incredible kind. Excellent bedside manner, highly recommend!
I had a 9:15am appointment and was in and out of Dr. Sinclair's office by 9:55am. She was lovely and informative. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Sinclair is fantastic, knowledgeable, and has a very reassuring bedside manner. Highly recommend.
Dr. Sinclair was fabulous and fast. Highly recommended, and I know I will come back here with any future ENT problems that may arise.
Great doctor. I got help for my problem right away, and she's just a very nice, smart, friendly person. Highly recommended.
This was the second time I visited Dr. Sinclair. She blends professionalism with excellent bedside manners. She was very thorough in her examination, very clear in her explanations, and very patient in answering all of my questions. I would recommend her very highly indeed.
Excellent doctor. She is knowledgeable, warm and reassuring, and was able to explain quickly and simply what my condition was and how we could treat it. The office was efficient -- no wait at all. I wouldn't call having a tiny camera pushed up my nose a pleasant experience, but on the whole I give the visit an A.
She was very nice and understanding, took her time to find out my medical history and was very eager to answer my questions. I would recommend her to my friends and family.
Better than I exiected
Dr. Sinclair was compassionate and straightforward, taking time to listen and to develop an appropriate diagnostic plan. She was everything I had hoped for when selecting my doctor. Unfortunately the office had double-booked appointments and I ended up waiting an hour to see the doctor (which I suspect would have been longer if I had not complained). When I arrived at the office there were about 40 patients in the waiting room, and when I left, it was literally empty. I have no idea why they booked everyone at the same time, but I was at the brink of leaving after the hour had passed. Glad I stayed though, as Dr. Sinclair was very helpful.
She was very thorough and comforting, yet still very professional.
I have never wrote a review online before but I really wanted to take the extra time to write a review for Dr. Sinclair. I saw her today and she was so attentive and informative about my ear pain. I have a sinus infection which lead to an ear infection and was going to take a flight on Monday. She immediately took notes, took the time to explain the treatment and gave her recommendation for treatment. It's rare to find a doctor who takes the time to listen to a patient and has such great bedside manner. I would highly recommend her to all of my colleagues and friends. Thank you Dr. Sinclair!
She was very confident about what she was talking about. She was very attentive and a good listener. She explained everything. She told me that if I wasn't better in a week after taking my drops then I should come back.
Dr. Sinclair is smart, calm, and reassuring. She has excellent bedside manner and clearly knows what she's talking about. She inspires confidence.
Dr. Sinclair, is the best doctor who I've ever seen. She is incredibly knowledgeable, communicative, and compassionate. She makes the scary proposition of having surgery more manageable. I cannot say enough about her. And, we traveled from NJ (about 10 minutes from the PA border) to see her. Well worth the travel.
Dr. Sinclair was very sweet and attentive. Obviously really smart and was able to help me right away.
Dc Sinclair was thorough and clear. She answered all our questions patiently and we felt very comfortable talking to her.
Great she is lovely
My second time seeing her and Dr Sinclair is great! Intelligent, caring. Warm and great manner. She is not into prescribing drugs for the sake of it either. I had a thorough exam and all is well.
It was fine.
My ratings say it all. Despite the reality of the doctor being on the clock, I didn't have the feeling of being rushed, or of the doctor going through the motions in any way; she's articulate, she pays attention.
She is always fantastic. Great attitude. Remembers my last visit and keep thorough notes. Very sympathetic to her patients needs. Office and equipment seem a bit old which normall bothers me, but such a minor point in this case. I wish she was my primary care doc.
Best doctor I've seen in a long time. Spent a lot of time with me. Answered all my questions and did a very thorough check of my issues. I felt I was in great hands with Dr Sinclair

Dr. Sinclair is amazing! She is the best doctor I have seen in New York. She is incredibly caring, smart, and understanding. She takes all the time you need and helps answer any questions you have. Her staff is also great as well. Highly recommend! I wish she was my general doctor as well.
My visit with Dr. Sinclair was terrific and couldn't have asked for better experience :) She was friendly, professional, efficient, and answered all my questions while making me feel comfortable and informed. Thanks Doc!
Great doctor, great visit. Listened to my concerns, took copious notes and talked about my options clearly with me. I definitely recommend her!
Dr Sinclair was really personable and comforting. She was upfront about all the procedures and made me feel like I knew what was going on and what my options were for treatment. Will def. be back soon.
Very professional, kind and invested in providing quality care.
She is the nicest doctor I met in NYC. Very competent, very concentrated, and so friendly and cooperative! For me, it was a great relief to talk to her about my sinus problems. I felt her real interest in helping me. Thank you very much!
Dr. Sinclair was absolutely fantastic. She immediately put me at ease, and didn't make me feel like I was being paranoid or silly in my concerns. She did all the necessary tests right there on the spot, explained what she was doing, and what the results meant the entire time. She then calmed all of my concerns while also giving me practical and longterm advice. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She was wonderful.
Was seen right on time, and the doctor was very thorough and discussed my concerns at length.
She's amazing!! Nicest doctor I've had in a while!
Great experience with Dr. Sinclair. She is very knowledgeable, kind and patiently listened to and answered all my questions. Highly recommend.
Dr Sinclair lived up to her reviews. She was warm, intelligent, caring and realistic about using meds or not. During my visit I did not feel rushed or condescended to. I felt like I was talking to a friend (who possesses all the knowledge needed to treat me!)
Dr. Sinclair is very respectful, friendly, and careful at the same time. She even walked me out to the receptionist and shook my hand before she left. She also doesn't make you do unnecessary procedures in order to earn more money from you.
The best Doctor I have ever had and I strongly recommend
She is an angel! Extremely knowledgeable & one of the nicest doctors ever.

She is fabulous. Efficient and warm. A lovely, helpful visit. Michael Taglieri
My experience with Catherine Sinclair was superb: she's incredibly knowledgeable, clearly explained what she was doing, listened carefully, and solved my problem. Couldn't have been more satisfied. She doesn't know this yet, but she's my new Ear, Nose & Throat doctor.
Wait time was an issue but once the doctor arrived she was very professional.
Dr. Sinclair provided support and a better understanding of personal issues that helped me during my visit.
Very nice, caring doctor! Would highly recommend to friends and family!

Dr. Sinclair took the time to listen and answer all of my questions. She is kind, knowledgable, and experienced. I felt reassured about her treatment plan, and I won't hesitate to set an appointment whenever I need her again.
I am not just a big fan of Zoc Doc now, but also of Dr Sinclair. She was awesome, thorough, comforting and skilled. Will be seeing her again, and using Zoc Doc for my future medical needs.
Didn't seem to take any shortcuts but rather listen and cover all the basis. Also didn't seem to try and "up-sell" me on unneeded procedures. However, I didn't like that I called to ask if they were running ontime and still waited 40 minutes to be seen.
Really great doctor. Professional, smart, with a great bedside manner. Answered all my questions. My new go-to ENT doctor!
I loved her! She was thoughtful and thorough and listened to all my concerns. I would definitely go back and would most certainly recommend her!
So far very good.
I thought the doctor was intelligent and kind. The medical receptionists on the other hand, were rude and unprofessional.
She was professional, sweet and very thorough. Staff is great too! She saved me from severe ear pain that I had due to complications from a sinus infection.Love her!
Excellent. And just fyi, the wait time was long because they had some issues with updating the systems but I don't expect a long wait time again.
Dr. Sinclair has a very pleasant, reassuring bedside manner, while maintaining an air of competence and intelligence. I felt more confident in my first visit with her than I have in multiple visits with numerous other doctors. I wish she could be my primary care physician.
Dr. Sinclair is awesome. She is very down to earth and you can tell she has your best interest at heart.
Dr. Sinclair was very caring and informative. I will not hesitate to return to her when needed AND refer her!!
The experience with Dr. Sinclair was very pleasant. A thoughtful, considerate and extremely knowledgable doctor . Dr Sinclair was very thorough in her diagnosis and informative. I would highly recommend her expertise and would gladly go back anytime.
One of the best Docs I have ever visited!
I got an appt. with Dr. Sinclair last minute and I'm so happy I did! She was very sweet, knowledgeable and had one of the friendliest demeanors. There was a short wait time, but wasn't anything extensive. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Sinclair...she's great and has a fun Australian accent too!
It was a pleasure to meet Catherine. She apologized for it being a long wait time, it was unexpected. She asked questions and took a moment to connect with me which is a nice touch. Addressed my concerns and I would certainly return/recommend.
She was wonderful! The receptionist was a little rude, but Dr. Sinclair was warm and thoughtful. She listened to me and really took time to explain everything. My appointment was less than 30 minutes, but very thorough.
Professional, knowledgable and timely. Took time to talk about and fully understand my "major malfunction" from my point of view.
Such a delight to have as a doctor.
Always informative & knowledgeable.
Always helpful & informative. I have recommended Doctor Sinclair to my friends and family.
I went to see Dr. Sinclair for a very simple procedure. The wait time was disappointing but other than that, I thought that she was very good - friendly, responsive and quick. She explained everything clearly and succinctly.
Dr. Sinclair was very nice and professional. Highly recommended.
Two thumbs way up! Could not ask for any better. :)
Even though I was 20 mins late for my appointment and Dr. Sinclair was ready to leave for the day she still saw me and carried an excellent no rushed examination. Highly recommended and very professional.
she was sweet, friendly, patient, knowledgable, and just all around a wonderful first visit.
Wow. This gal was great!!! Such a nice, sunny and upbeat personality! I felt like I was talking to a good friend. She explained everything to me and instead of recommending some kind of minor surgery, she wants to treat me naturally first, which is ALWAY a plus in my book! I'm so happy I found a kind, knowledgeable ENT in NYC not too far from where I live! And she's associated with St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital which is always my go to hospital, bonus! I will definitely go to her if I ever have a problem again!! I really like that I can print and fill out my forms before I get to the office. I NEVER have to wait then!! And her Australian accent is super cute!!
Friendly and thorough. I was seen immediately. I recommend Dr. Sinclair.
Dr. Sinclair was really great! She was thorough and explained everything so that I would understand the nature of my problem. She was very patient and kind!
