Verified Patient Reviews
He was very pleasant, thorough and seemed to know his stuff. It was my first visit and I have not started any of the medications he suggested, so I do not know if they will work. I did not actually get a diagnosis seeing I have to go for further testing. But he did find other things I was not aware of. Would recommend him to others.
He was excellent. I felt so much better after seeing him.
He was very knowledgeable. Answered all my questions. I would recommend him to everyone, I was nervous to get my ears cleaned but he did it quick and it was pain free. Everyone should use Dr. Astrachan!

This was the easiest visit ever using the online appointment schedule through ZocDoc and my visit with Dr. Astrachan from the moment he came in the room was great. Dr. Astrachan was attentive, and took the time to listen to my symptoms and evaluated my condition and made his diagnosis with confidence, I had been to so many professionals before my appointment with Dr. Astrachan without any satisfaction. I would recommend this doctor and give him the highest recommendation .
Doctor Astrachan is the best. Plain and simple.
He was extremely knowledgable. Immediately knew my health issue. I was very pleased with the visit and would highly recommend Dr. Astrachan.
Dr. Astrakhan was thorough and kind, gave me information without overwhelming me.
I arrived an hour early, and yet Dr. Astrachan saw me right away. I was very pleased at how prompt his care was. No unnecessary questions, and of course I was out of his office early as well.

I really liked Dr. Astrachan. He was very understanding and helpful.
Dr. Astrachan is very courteous, personal and conscientious. Never making me nervous or anxious.
He's got great communication skills and patient with children.
Dr Astrachan is amazing. He truly is s specialist in his field. I've been coming to Dr A for maybe 6 years after seeing 2 other Drs that didn't have the answer. This is the 2nd time that I have come to Dr Astrachan with strange symptoms and he almost immediately knew the diagnosis. Didn't like the diagnosis, but now I know the issue.
Staff is very friendly and the office is nice. Dr. Astrachan is very thorough in his exam, explains what he is doing and answers all questions, AND has a sense of humor. Highly recommend.
I was surprised that I was able to make an appt. as quickly as I did. I was also pleased that I didn't have to wait long. The option of filling the forms out online was another plus. Dr.Astrachan was quick and thorough. He diagnosed the problem immediately and I left the office with such relief.
Very professional and thorough. Took time to answer my questions and explain my condition.
Concerned, helpful and efficient. Also liked the office staff and his assistant - friendly and helpful!
Helpful visit but the front desk person asked me a personal health question across the office waiting room instead of calling me to the window which was a bit alarming. DR and other staff were professional and attentive and kind.
Perhaps too professional. Clipped. Fast diagnosis. Impersonal.
I would recommend Dr Astrachan. Very knowledgeable and helpful.Great bedside manner... he took the time to explain what he was doing for me and why. Very friendly office staff...made my 1st apt. easy.
Very good. I was quickly and well treated by Dr. Astrachan, and I liked many things at his medical practice: the premises are clean, wide open, well maintained and welcoming. There is no blasting TV or music, which make waiting rooms so unpleasant at other medical facilities. The staff is professional, accurate, efficient and, more importantly not abrupt to patients, as is often the case. I like this medical practice a lot, and I recommend it wholeheartedly!
Ear exam and hearing test should have been coordinated as in the past. Required a separate appointment the following week.
Professional. He listened and is working toward a solution/diagnosis.
There was an issue with finding my chart so that is the only reason I waited a decent amount of time. The office was very nice and apologized for the confusion with my chart.
He's a good Doctor, everybody in my area recommends him.
Dr. Astrachan seemed a little rushed for my visit, but he still addressed my concerns. He might have just had a lot on his plate that day. My previous visit with him did not feel that way. I will continue to have him as my ENT.
For a first time visit he was very quick. Don't feel he was listening to all of my concerns. He didn't take a lot of time explaining my condition and preventative measures either. Seems knowledgeable but I like to spend more time for a first time visit.
My first visit I felt comfortable & confident with the dr. I believe he really cares about his patients and trying to help.
I must say this was by far the best doctor's visit I've had and I would have no problem returning to this office. Staff was friendly and very professional.
He's knowledgeable about my problem and well on the way to helping me solve my issues!
I read mostly good reviews about Dr. Astrachan, and I'm glad I listened. If you are a singer and/or need someone who knows their stuff about vocal cords, he is the Dr. for you. He was very reassuring and I'm very glad I went to him. Now I know what my issue is and what was making it worse. Thank you Dr. Astrachan!!
short and to the point. although it was close to closing time i would've like time to ask questions
Very capable and confident. He inspire with his confidence and explain the problem very well.
I brought my five year old daughter to Dr. Astrachan. It was our first time meeting him and going to his office. The receptionists and staff were friendly and organized. I was relieved to see that that the office and exam rooms were very clean and up-to-date. I tend to judge healthcare professionals on how well they maintain their offices, in addition to their bed side mannerisms. Dr. Astrachan was great with my daughter and very informative. I trust his judgement and can tell he takes pride in his profession.
He is very comfortable to talk with and I did not feel he was rushing to another patient. He explained everything in understanding terms and put me at ease. I will be returning to him with a follow up.Also, when I walked into the office and handed in my paperwork I was called in right away. I was attended to within minutes. It seems the office runs very smoothly. I feel very satisified that I chose him as my doctor.I also like the fact you can make appointments online and see what is available.I printed my paperwork(new patient insurance and history info) at home and was able to fill it out accurately. saving time when i checked in.
i waited about a half hour this time but last time i was in the door within about 15 mins. amazing dr. my step daughter goes to him now too!!!
Absolutely outstanding. Built trust in about 3min. I've found an ENT that is smart, personable, and action-oriented. He's my new ENT for sure!
The Dr. was very friendly and very capable. I felt sure he knew how to help me. The staff was the same. I felt very comfortable being seen there.
Glad it was easy to make an appointment, and I was seen quickly. The office staff are very efficient, and Dr Astrachan is clearly an expert in the ENT area.
Dr. Astrachan was very professional and gave me a sense of confidence that he could diagnose ant treat my condition successfully.
Great experience for my 7yr odl!!!!! very friendly and excellent Dr
had an emergency visit- needed a ent right away through this web site I not only booked an appointment, printed out all 1st time visit forms and was in to see him the next morning. he was great, very thorough
I thought I had a inner ear trauma related to scuba diving(thankfully it wasn't). Dr. Astrachan did a complete exam and hearing test and ruled out any permanent damage. He also gave me guidelines to continue safe diving. I feel confident now to return to scuba diving.
He knew his stuff. I was impressed. No small talk, straight to the point. Knew exactly what was wrong and am now taking the steps to find resolution.
This doctor was AMAZING. Very professional with a great personality. Can't believe such a doctor exists. I was extremely nervous and he made me feel comfortable. Thank you so much!
He was a cool guy and made me feel comfortable. He also cared and knew what he was doing.
Meticulous and great patient rapport.
He is very thorough and takes his time with the evaluation, as opposed to some doctors who seem to be rushing you out. Very nice man, professional yet with a sense of humor. Would highly recommend him!
Took time to explain issues about my nose/ears that other doctors had ignored.
Up front and to the point. Professional. Nice guy.
Loved him and his staff. Helpful, friendly.
He is a warm personality and took time explain what is the cause of my ear-pain. I am on a three weeks medication for now, and hoping to get better.
Very good to have been explained thoroughly about symptoms and recovery. Thanks Dr. ASTRACHAN
