Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Godin and staff and ENT were friendly and took care of me today. I would recommend and go back if needed.
He was great and seem to figure out the problem right away. And I had gone to him approximately six years ago. So all good. BL
Helpful, learned a lot.
He was great, detail oriented, caring and extremely competent
Was able to get an appointment the next day. Front desk was nice. Was easy to find. Ive been having trouble hearing and he cleared out the ear wax very quickly, did a hearing test, and was out of there. Wait time was very minimal. Had a great experience and will go back if I ever need to!
incredibly helpful, professional and efficient.
Friendly, professional and personal. Would recommend. He was very thorough.
Overall, I think I spent too long for a simple ear cleaning and hearing test. (Total time spent was about 2 hours). But other than that, the staff were very friendly and communicative.
Very rough exam and brief but you could hear him chit chatting with a patient next door for 30 minutes.
Dr. Godin was very friendly and explained exactly what he was doing and why throughout the visit. The wait time was very short and the rest of the staff was also nice and helpful.
Best bedside manner of any doctor I've ever had.
Dr. Godin is smart, thorough and compassionate. The office staff is friendly and efficient. Highly recommend!
Long wait for a short visit. No information given. Expensive tests reccomended.
I waited almost 1h for the doctor to see me during 5min. Very friendly doctor and staff but the place is so big that there is not much personal attention, you feel like just one more patient.
Excellent addressed my concerns.
I arrived 10 minutes before, waited for over an hour, seen for 5 minutes and then was sent out right away. He seemed annoyed with my questions. Overall, it was not a pleasant visit.
Excellent experience. Dr. Godin was very thorough in the understanding of the problem, and effective in finding the most appropriate course of action, and treatment. Dr. Godin took a very proactive stand in trying to understand a difficult and confounding initial clinical picture, and did his very best to help me. I am grateful to him for what he did, and for all his help. Great office, very well organized. Also a positive mention to his nurse, who does a great job too in assisting him and helping patients. The nurse facilitated a referral for higher level of care in a very professional and effective manner. Thank you very much to both of you.
Doctor Godin was fantastic as always, but the wait times are consistently unacceptable.
BE SUPER CAREFUL .. STAFF MISGUIDES YOU ABOUT YOUR PAYMENT. I gave my insurance card and ID to the guy at front desk and asked him very specifically please let me know if I have to pay anything?? He ran my insurance and said you don't have to pay anything, your insurance covered it. Later I get a bill at home and when I called the office, Keith the manager tells me I have to pay even knowing his staff gave me wrong info. Plus he was very unprofessional- BEWARE- that's all I can say.
great office, friendly staff
His exams are too rough.
Dr. Godin is friendly, yet direct and honest, which I really appreciate. I had a traumatic experience with an ENT condition as a child and Dr. Godin did everything he could to be as gentle as possible. What I really appreciated was that as a surgeon, Dr. Godin didn't immediately recommend surgery - he was conservative in his approach, clearly cared about how I felt and he discussed multiple treatment options. If my condition relapses, I will definitely go back to Dr. Godin.
The doctor and staff were pleasant and knowledgable. It was a really great experience. I could tell they work at being friendly and professional. Will certainly go back.
As always great visit. Good diagnosis and very intelligent response.
The office is clean and bright and everyone is pleasant. My appointment was quick and efficient. Highly recommended, especially for busy people on their breaks!
Dr. Godin is extremely professional and informative. I felt he helped me solve my sinus problems and made me feel assured. I would recommend him to a friend.
Dr. Godin regularly uses a diagnostic practice called endoscopy which gets billed as a surgical treatment and is not covered by most insurance policies. This means that patients will have to pay substantially for a diagnosis entirely out of pocket. I doubt that many patients would opt for the added procedure if they knew it would cost them so much. Had I been told of the cost, I would not have opted for it given the limited benefits and possible risks. Less importantly, but worth knowing, Dr. Godin was brusque and unpleasant, never introducing himself even though I introduced myself.
He didn't have a great "bedside" manner. The front desk and office staff was great but him.. not so much.
Dr. Godin is amazing!!! Every visit I feel welcomed by him and the rest of the staff. I actually love making the visit to see everyone.
Dr was great. Staff was nice, but extremely inefficient. Several times I was if I was a walk in but they would locate my appointment later. No one seemed to know why I was there.
Surprisingly long wait at 8 am.
Besides the wait (my appt was at 11, was seen at 11:45) everything was great! Great sense of humor and quick service, I walked out feeling like a brand new person!
The wait time was over 30 minutes. Dr. Godin seems to be very smart but
Doctor was very professional and thorough. I was taken to the doctor very shortly after arriving at the office. Highly recommended!
Dr. Godin was the first of five doctors that I felt truly listened to the symptoms that I was describing, instead of quickly dismissing them and handing me vertigo medication like everyone else. He took his time examining me, complied detailed notes, and made suggestions for next steps. It's easy to see how he has been selected for the top doctors list several years running. I will say that Dr. Godin was straight to the point with me, and doesn't seem like one for chit chat - which I personally appreciate in a specialist. If you want someone intelligent and experienced looking after your ENT problems - he's your guy.
Great staff, just a bit busy at the end of the day. Overall had a great experience
First time visiting an ENT after a recommendation from my dentist. Dr. Godin was very pleasant, thorough in his review, and explained his diagnosis clearly. He asked me a ton of questions to narrow down my symptoms. He gave me paperwork explaining my issue and prescribed some meds. I have to return in 30 days to confirm if my issue is resolved. Great doctor, definitely recommend.
If you are experiencing any kind of ear, nose or throat issues (including vertigo) then Dr. David Godin is the doctor for you. I have already recommended him to family and friends. Also his office staff and audiologists and other medical technicians and assistants are all exceptional and attentive.
Waiting room and check in/out very high tech and streamlined. Staff knowledgeable and friendly.
Visit went well. It's not easy seeing a 2 yr old and she's not the easiest person to deal with, but we got what we came for. Dr. Godin was as close to great as can be expected with our daughter.
Office has a long wait, and he has an interesting bedside manner, but is very thorough. If you need assistance with surgery (ie after injury), he may refer you to a specialist though.
Great doctor. Knowledgeable, no fuss yet very thorough.
He was good, but as soon as I said no to doing an expensive test (for a sore throat) he sort of dismissed me and said "ok then gargle salt water" as if the expensive camera test was the only thing he could do.
Dr. Godin has an appalling bedside manner. I walked in and tell him what's going on, at which point he proceeds to examine me. Fine, okay. He then starts typing on his computer, I ask him what's going on and without looking at me throws me a packet of papers. He says to follow the instructions on the packet and pick up my prescriptions. Doesn't really explain what's going on, hardly interacts with me. I guess it's good that it was a quick visit.
I'm a big fan of Dr Godin, he got me through thyroid cancer.
I was very impressed with his efficiency and knowledge base.
Dr. Godin puts you at ease right away, is an excellent conversationalist, and moreover, a faultless physician. His analysis was quick, thorough and reassuring. I look forward to retaining him as my ear-nose-throat specialist. He identified allergy and digestive issues that I knew existed, but that previous physicians were too rushed or preoccupied to treat.
Great experience with all the doctors, nurses and assistants. Felt very comfortable talking to everyone and they explained everything to me in detail.
Great doctor but I'd prefer them to tell me to come at the exact time that the doc is available. I always come on time and then wait for over an hour. I have to take time off work to come in and they really don't respect your time
A little rushex.
Dr. Gordon was excellent with my son. He was patient and kind. My son needed to see the allergist and Dr. Godin walked us to his colleague Dr. Sporter and asked that he see my son right away, and indeed he saw my son and did some allergy testing! Dr. Godin then followed up with us and advised us of our next steps. His staff was also very kind and attentive.
this guy was great! knowledgeable, personable and efficient
Dr Godin treated my kids when they were younger, and both did really well under his care. He is now my ENT, and I've been very pleased. He is direct and to the point, gets to the heart of the problem quickly and knows his stuff.
Very friendly, personable doctor. Was very eager to help me with a very small problem and took great care of me!
Great bedside manner. Was attentive and listened to my patient history and current problem. Staff overall quite pleasant and helpful. Wait time was a little long but it was my first visit and I arrived 5 mins late. I would recommend seeing Dr. Godin. I had a possible broken nose and previous history of septum issues. He gave good follow-up steps.
Amazing staff and doctor!! Extremely efficient!! So glad I chose Dr Godin!
Knowledgable and responsive. Resolved issue quickly
Been going to Dr. Godin for years. Wouldn't consider going anywhere else -- he's the best of the best. Very smart, very efficient, and really cares about his patients.
This practice is excellent. They were friendly, efficient, and throrough. It was also pretty amazing to get shuffled from room to room to be tested by various doctors. One stop shop for ENT. Very happy I chose this office.
Competent doctor with weird - rude behavior.
Thorough and helpful. Would recommend.
The hour wait was worth it. I didn't do all my paperwork online .. so that delayed me and he had a lot of people
Everyone at the office, including reception, nurses, and Dr. Godin, were friendly, approachable, knowledgeable and EXTREMELY thorough - and very good listeners.
Dr. Godin is wonderful. I've had him for years and he basically cured me of vocal chord nodules! Super impressed and will continue to use him.
Great staff. Efficient and friendly.
Dr. Godin was the best doctor I've had yet. He was very thorough and took great care of me. He seems to really care about his patients. I would recommend him
He was great! Very informative and friendly
Very informative, professional and he knows very well his stuff. I am very grateful!
I would say that my visit, my first, was a very pleasant experience overall. Everyone I interacted with on the staff was exceedingly professional. Both the PA and the Doctor were personable and informative as well as caring and concerned.
Very nice guy; friendly, careful and thorough. Wait wasn't bad. I was seen in 20 minutes. I trust him with my healthcare.
Dr. Godin and his staff were knowledgeable and speedy. Everyone had answers and insights to share with me - from questions about insurance to questions about my ear issue. It felt like everyone cared about my problem and were trying to fix it and find the heart of the problem - not just rush me through the office and write a prescription to get me out.
good bedside manners. competent.
He is amazing! The front desk is nice too, but the wait times can be a real drag.
I arrived 15 minutes prior to my appointment and had to wait an hour and 15 minutes after my appointment time before I saw the doctor. The office then didn't send all my prescriptions to the pharmacy. Now I'll have to wait over the weekend to get a hold of the doctor. The doctor was comprehensive and seem to know what he was talking about but the experience over all was poor.
I've been a patient of Dr. Godin's for over a year and a half and have always been impressed with his care and the friendliness of the office staff. Dr. Godin does a really great job explaining his diagnosis and all your possible treatment options. Highly recommend!
They thoroughly helped examine my symptoms and made me feel well taken care of. I will certainly go back!
What a wonderful experience I had for the first time with this ear nose and throat doctor. I highly recommend this establishment. Dr. Gobin is very competent and office is ran very efficiently. I couldn't have asked for a better check up. I am definitely designating Dr. Gobin as my new ENT. I recommend you give him a try and possibly do the same. He did a immediate yet thorough examination which diagnosed my issue. I was prescribed the necessary treatment and I look forward to a complete remedy.
The best doctor in any field that I ever interacted, he goes above and beyond. He answers questions without being condescending, and his diagnosis is always accurate & thorough.
My visit with Dr.Gobin was just alright. I felt he was rushing and didn't really take his time.
Office staff were efficient, polite, and helpful. Office is clean and accommodates children also.
Very good visit. He knew what was q Wrong right away and fixed it.
I cannot recommend this gentleman and his team enough. Such a thorough pre-check up firstly, and then he is one of the best doctors that i have been to for ENT. Was able to accurately figure out what I had and I am so thrilled that I found him. Super friendly, extremely smart, and has the best way of communicating.
To the point no nonsense.
Professional and thorough. Left me assured that problem was on the road to resolution.
Great experience. Great doctor. Super friendly office. Highly recommend.
Completed the pre-check info few days in advance, arrived on time a the appointment. the person at the office made me wait 30min even if i was the only one in the waiting room and then he told me that he had to type in all the electronic information i sent via zoc-doc on his system first to be able to see the doctor after. I wasted 1/2 day sick day for that :( Disappointing
Great guy, I went to 2 doctors before him and nobody could help me. I was in such a painful situation and he unfortunately had to do a procedure that hurt like crazy for a few second but I could see how much he cared about the pain I was in. My situation is finally improving and my pain is subsiding. Definitely recommend this dude!
Dr. Godin was very friendly and fixed my ear issue right away. I had impacted ear wax and I used a vacuum to quickly get it out. I would have preferred a faster experience at the front desk but the office was generally fine.
Dr. Godin is very friendly. He answered all my questions and was patient.
Dr. Godin is professional and very caring...He is excellent...
I am very satisfy with the visit, knowledgeable and attentive. I highly recommended
Dr. Godin is an incredibly professional individual, as are all of his staff. From the minute I step into his office, I know that my experience will be quick, yet very thorough. I couldn't recommend him enough.
It's always nice when a doctor tells you "he won't give up until you feel better!"
He's very thorough and the office is very knowledgeable
Dr Godin is excellent knowledgable and very professional. I highly recommend him.
First of all staff was always extremely nice and pleasant to deal with no matter what the situation. Dr. Godin was very detailed and never rushing on a diagnosis. He was also very helpful when my husband needed to see him as well.
Very pleasant and informative. He's a great doctor!!!
He was very thorough- took care of my problem and went further with testing and another appointment.
It was a very good visit, he seems to be very concerned about patients well being. His bedside manner is awesome and he loves to make sure he is giving you the proper diagnosis, so he is very careful with testing and giving out prescriptions. I have no problem with him. He will be my permanent ear doctor!
very short. Not sure we got to the root of the problem.
Waited well over an hour to see the doctor. Though he was very friendly and professional, my time is too precious to be waiting that long.
If they could have seen me on time I might have had a better experience, everything else was great but it messed up days plans a lot.
Dr. Godin is great! He was very thorough and polite. The wait time was a little bit extensive but they knew up front and told us right away. He was also very apologetic. Otherwise, I would definitely go back.
Dr. Godin was excellent and so was his medical assistant.
Very friendly doctor and nice office, but wait time (2h) was unacceptable, especialy with young children!!
The doctor was great-attentive and helpful. The wait was too long
Very professional, friendly, personal, knowledgeable. Would recommend.
Great doc... Super efficient and fixed me up good. Would definitely return in the future.
Overall good. Fixed my issue, no-nonsense, and explained it. That said, he DID order a hearing test as a "matter of course" -- even though my issue was an outer ear infection and not anything remotely having to do with underlying hearing. After checking with my insurance to confirm it came with no extra copay, I decided to oblige -- "why not, lets check it out if it's free" -- but it's an example of doctors over-prescribing procedures to pad their insurance reimbursements. Medicine is a business, I get it, but I wish they were a bit more open about this with patients.
My dad highly recommends him! He was not feeling well and came back feeling 100%.
Dr. Godin and his assistants were extremely lovely and helpful, I recommend them as Doctors for sure. However, I sat in the waiting room for an hour before anyone even addressed me, or explained why it was taking so long. I also had to wait at various intervals throughout my appt because there were not enough rooms, and obviously there was a lot going on. Finally after over two hours I left and my appointment was not even over, I had to leave because I had to be somewhere else.
Fantastic experience. Dr. Godin was clear and very helpful. The reception staff was a little disorganized (they didn't have my appointment scheduled even though they had received all the paperwork I did when I made the appointment and I had received a confirmation email for the appointment). Regardless, they reacted quickly and my wait time was about 25 minutes.
Dr. Godin is an excellent physician with great bedside manner, but I was truly dissappointed in my most recent visit. I waited 45 minutes before inquiring when Dr. Godin would see me. When I was able to track down a staff member, he stated he had another patient ahead of me. After already requesting the time off from work, I could not wait any longer and had to forego my appointment, and opportunity to take off from work again for at least a few weeks to seek treatment. This could perhaps be an error from his staff of double, triple, or quadruple booking him, but unless you ample about of time to waste I would not recommend Dr. Pressman
Dr Godin was great! He answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable with the remedies he proposed to not only fix the problem now, but prevent it from continuously occurring. I've already scheduled a follow up to do some allergy diagnosis as step1 with him for next week. I have faith that he'll be able to find me a good solution.
Wait time was long but doc was pretty good and thorough.
Nice man, very professional. He takes emergency appointments which is great.
All of the people I came into contact with at his office were incredibly friendly and professional. The only bad thing I have to say about my experience was the wait time; however, they did thank me profusely for my patience.
I have been coming to Dr. Godin for years. Dr. Godin is an utmost professional in clinical skills and knowledge AND makes the patient feel respected and at ease.
I had a very good experience very good doctor
I think he was great and answered all My questions. He was kind and understanding
Dr Godin performed surgery on me, total thyroid dissection, after I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. He removed my thyroid and a dozen lymph nodes. Surgery went great, and he's been great since. He talks to my parents on the phone, he checks in on me, he really cares. Definitely made a great choice.
Dr. Godwin was wonderful. He took care of my problem. I highly recommend him.
It's a mill. I have never seen such a "medical" office. It has branches all over the country.
Friendly, thoroughly, and overall very good experience.
Dr. Godin helped set me at ease with my sinus issues. Very attentive and confident.
No nonsense doctor. Did not like having an endoscopy right away.
I was pleasantly surprised when the Doctor himself came to the Waiting room to usher me into the exam room. Dr Godin was pleasant, caring and knowledgable. I would highly recommend Dr Godin .
On both of my visits, the office was clearly overbooked. I had to wait about 2 hours past my appointment time before I actually got to see the doctor. When I finally did see the doctor, it was for all of about 5 minutes. He was quick to diagnose my symptoms, handed me a poor quality print out of what I should do next, didn't take the time to explain any of it to me, or give me the opportunity to ask any questions. He seemed friendly on the surface, but really gave the impression that he was in a hurray and not very interested in taking the time to help me.
Dr Godin is the best! Although the waits can be very long
He was one of the best doctors I've been to. Wish I could go to him for everything. Listened to everything, formed a plan and explained it thoroughly to me (in a friendly and non-patronizing way, which can be rare)
Really thorough and nice, knew what he was doing
Dr. Godin is a wonderful doctor. Thorough, patient and very professional.
Friendly staff, no wait time, Dr. answered all my questions and explained everything in a simple way
This was my first visit to Dr. Godin's office. It was a great space - very clean and spacious. I was only in the waiting room for about 10-15 minutes, and that was likely because it was my first visit to the office. I was then brought into the exam room in a timely manner which I was prepped by a nurse/PA. Dr. Godin came in about 5 minutes later, if that. The visit was quick, efficient, and thorough. Most importantly, my ear is already much better less than 24 hours after the visit. I would highly recommend this office, and plan to return with any ENT needs of mine.
Had to make a last minute appointment for ear pain and congestion. Was seen that afternoon. Office wait was about 20 min during the late afternoon on a weekday. Not too bad. Was seen by the nurse promptly and was asked a great deal of detailed questions. This makes me feel better because I feel like they are getting accurate and detailed info about me, my medical history and my symptoms. Doctor came in and was very nice. Great Bedside manner. I told him I was in a bit of a rush since I had to get back to work. He was able to get everything taken care of promptly and send my prescription right over to my pharmacy. All in all was in an out of the doctors and had my medication in hand within 2 hours.
Dr Godin was great. I filled out my paperwork online before my appointment and was in within 10 minutes of arrival. He was very kind and professional. I was nervous about getting the tube up my nose and down my throat but he was very gentle and calmed my nerves immediately. I would definitely suggest going to see him. I will be going back for an allergy test.
Dr. Godin is a cool dude. He knows what he is talking about and he is very confident in the treatment plan he offers. Sometimes he is so confident that I do not have any other choice but to agree with him. He can be very persuasive. I have been to see him 4 times in the past 4 years. The procedure itself was nothing short of torture but Dr. Godin did a good job of trying to empathize with my pain of a camera in tube being shoved down my nose and throat into to my stomach. Not sure if he actually felt bad about causing me so much discomfort and pain, but he tried. On my last visit, however, I did feel as if I wa just a number in his office and there was a rush to get me out. I had a few questions that went unanswered because he hurriedly left the room. He wanted me to try a new medication but nobody followed up and it was frustrating to call the office over and over to figure it out so I quit trying after 5 times. I guess the medication wasn't that important...
Professional doctor and checked my problem right away.Thank you
Excellent experience and am so glad I went to Dr. G for a second opinion.
As an MD myself, I do my research before going to a new doc. Dr. Godin is an excellent clinician, weighing all the pluses and minuses of therapies, and engages you in the discussion. I trust his clinical judgement, and after seeing him twice for different issues - he's my ENT specialist in NYC.
Great staff very helpful and cordial. One of the few Doctors that have late hours.
We were at this doctor's office for 90 minutes for a simple ear examine. The wait time is incredibly long. Had Dr Godin prescribed the necessary medicine the first time, we would not have to return in less than 2 weeks for the same issue. He is definitely the non-aggressive type. This is our second experience with delayed treatment at this office. I do not plan on returning.
i would recommend him
Great doctor. Good at problem solving and makes you feel like you are in good hands. I am very happy to have found this practice. I bring my kids here,too.
David Godin is one of my favorite doctors. He's very kind, patient, and tells it how it is. He's always there for his patients and completely and utterly cares for his patients. He will always try to make you feel as comfortable as possible and really cares about your retention with him. I highly suggest him! He's wonderful.
He is an excellent doctor!
He was knowledgeable, great bedside manner, and looks for the root of the problem
The doc was thoughtful and caring. Hated the wait
I was very satisfied with Dr. Godin. He easily diagnosed my problem and then let me know what other options were available for me to consider should the initial treatment he prescribed not resolve the issue. I would certainly recommend him to anyone seeking an ENT.
He was very professional, thorough, and answered all of my questions. I would recommend him.
Dr. Godin is excellent, but the wait time can be a lot because sometimes he spends a lot of time on individual patients, meaning you will have to wait. But on the positive side if you need more time he will give you added attention as well.
Dr. Godin is very good, knowledgeable and you feel very well cared for under his care, however, the wait has always been a bit of a problem
Solid! The Doc fixed me up real good! In fact, I can hear better than I have in a VERY long time. My only complaint would be the wait was a bit long, but well worth it for the results I received. Highly recommend. Cool/nice guy and very professional. Thanks Dr. G
Friendly, professional office. Very amiable Doctor. Little bit of a wait, but was able to book a same-day appointment.
He was nice and gentle and answered my questions. He seemed to care.
Excellent doctor. He was very thorough, seemed to have an excellent understanding of my condition. I would recommend him to anyone that needed similar services.
I found the doctor to be very nice and thorough. I felt very comfortable in his hands, however, I was no happy about the long wait time.
Efficient and effective - he diagnosed me quickly and everyone in the office was pleasant.
Could have been a great diagnosis and treatment plan, but did very little to explain the basis of his decisions. I felt rushed when asking questions to get that context.
Long wait but I understood. I would recommend anyone with a problem in his scope of practice to see him.
Dr Godin was very friendly, kept his appointments moving and did a thorough examination. So far so good!
Fantastic. Dr. Godin is very knowledgeable. I haven't been feeling well for about a month and when I realized it wasn't my allergies, I immediately called Dr. Godin. In just a few minutes he targeted my issue. I should have called him as soon as I got stuffy. Great experience as always!!
I thought Dr. Godin was very detailed and informative. It seemed liked forever to give all the information but having the good feeling that he actually reviewed my history was a comfort.
Doctor was wonderful. The front desk needs to get it together.
There were two problems with Dr. Godin. One was his arrogant bedside manner, particularly concerning some of my anxiety regarding his procedures -- he did little to put me at ease. He suggested drastic lifestyle changes that weren't feasible for me and when I tried to talk about that, his attitude was basically, "well, tough." I've since learned that there's absolutely a middle ground. More importantly, he put me on an antiacid, which was a great idea, but instead of letting me know I could get the OTC stuff, he wrote me an RX for a new brand he was pushing. I was naive and shelled out for a few months for it until another doctor looked at me like I was crazy and told me I could get the same thing without the fancy name. If you're a strong self-advocate and know your body well, Dr. Godin may be a fine doctor for you, but I went in having no idea what was going on and found the process difficult and nerve-wracking: I certainly would not choose him again.
Dr Godin is an extremely gifted practitioner. He immediately diagnosed and treated a condition that had stumped several other doctors and I owe my health to him. That said, this is a very busy practice and there is precious little time for chit chat afforded during the exam. Have your questions ready, and don't get flustered by the polite rush. Very warm and helpful office staff, who are all real pros.
Great bedside manner and really open to answering questions. The staff was almost usually nice for a doctor's office. Highly recommend Dr. Godin and his practice!
I was completely satisfied with Dr Godin, who spent quite a bit of time with me---more than he needed to spend in fact. I thought his demeanor was excellent, his personality wonderful, and of course he remedied the condition that I had. Indeed, I would go back to him for services and of course recommend him to others. PS. He is a " nice guy" and not all about business. In today's world that is virtually non existent in the medical field.
Great manner. Intelligent. Kind.
Extremely professional and knowledgable and amazing surgeon to say the least...;)
Dr. Godin and his staff were very professional and pleasant. I actually enjoyed by doctor's appointment! I highly recommend Dr. Godin and ENT Allergy Associates!
Regarding the sign-in system, they switched over to a new automated patient info review process which takes up a lot of time. I know its for the best (to speed things along later), but the inital wait along with answering all those questions on their tablets was a little overwhelming. The actual visit with Dr. Godin was awesome as usual. He is definitely a people person, and an excellent ENT.
So long as you want results over a warm fuzzy feeling of being an individual, who is deeply cared for and whose every recalled detail and suspician is attentatively noted down, it's very good. Big office, sort of industrial (not that bad) care, but it was efficient and I got the tests I needed RIGHT NOW, no running about with other appointmenst, and was actually given a explanation for my particular complaint, which is far more than when I sent ot the person my local doc sent me so.
Excellent visit, super professional Doctor!!
Dr. Godin is great. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs ENT services.
I would definitely recommend him.
Profesional and with lot of knowledge. I like the service and the staff is great
Great! Office was very efficient. Doctor was very thorough and pleasant. My one year old son even gave Dr. Godin a well deserved kiss at the end of our visit.
Excellent staff, professional, all together a great , intelligent doctor. I would recommend anyone that needs an ENT to go here without a doubt
This was a very strange visit from start to finish. During the time I was waiting, one of the receptionists was angrily screaming people's names. One woman was trying to make it up to the desk with a small child, and the receptionist kept yelling her name angrily. Very disconcerting. When I did finally get into the office, the doc had to keep leaving in the middle of the exam to address some personal issue. (I overheard the nurse who came in to interupt say, "please... she's crying") A little too much theater for an ENT visit. Dr. Godin, himself seemed very friendly and competent, but I'll never set foot back in that office.
Very professional and efficient
Much improved... Thanks!
Dr. Godin is one of the best doctor I ever had, he did my uupp surgery 4 months ago, and I feel great it change my quality of life. My only complaint is the waiting time to see the doctors 1hour and 30 minutes.
I liked that they were very thorough and that there is an allergist and ENT there.
He is an excellent doctor
I highly recommend Dr. Godin. I came to him during a lunch break for a sinus infection. He is extremely friendly, compassionate, and most important-- knowledgable. You cannot go wrong with him. I came back to my office and told my co-workers that I just had one of the best doctor's appointments ever--- thanks to Dr. Godin.
It was great experience, unfortunately dr. Godin diagnosed me with nesopharynx cancer, but that just confirm his his dedication and professionalism. before that, for more than 3 month I was treated for sinus infection because it has almost identical symptoms but with the proper examination it could be diagnosed much sooner. Thank you dr. Godin!
Very good and professional. Knowledgeable and explained my funky situation (salivary gland infection).
Very professional. I would recommend him right away
I arrived on time for my appointment - 9:30am on a Saturday. Had to wait in the waiting room for a half-hour, then in the patient room for 45 minutes before seeing the doctor. No one gave me any explanation for why.
He is a pro and visit was a success
Dr David Godin seemed very prepared for his task but behaved in dismissive, uninvolved matter. He seemed to be seeing to many patients at a time and didn't give me time to ask him many of the questions I had about the diagnosis he had just given me. This left me feeling worried and confused on how exactly I was supposed to proceed with my treatment.
Nice doctor, completely equipped office but hate that they over schedule and make you wait in the waiting room AND private room for over an hour each.
Great doctor and explains everything
Very pleasant and was provided with good information for aftercare.
Doctor Godin made me feel very comfortable.
Office space was impressive: large, modern, clean, welcoming, professional. All staff were very kind and efficient. Definitely felt like I was in good hands from the beginning. Dr. Godin was both amiable and knowledgeable. At times I felt like he and the staff were a little bit rushed, but I got the impression that this was because they knew they needed time to get their jobs done to the best of their abilities and to make sure all patients received adequate time, which I did get. They were always polite, and let me know they were there for me should I have any questions, concerns, etc. I was very impressed!
Overall very good, big clean office and very courteous doctor.
The doctor was good. office staff was not. I went over 3 weeks ago and no one has called me back for my cat scan. I now need to call. I waited 30 min to be seen because there was an issue with my check in. If I didn't ask I wouldn't have been seen.
Dr. Godin is a great doctor. He spent a lot of time with me discussing my issues and coming up with an idea of what might be wrong. He didn't just push pills on me and rush me out the door but really took the time to figure out what the real problem was.
He is very knoweleageable and professional.
Very kind and knowledgable. I would highly recommend him
My appointment was delayed for a patient who had complications from a recent surgery. When I explained that I had another appointment to make later that day Dr Godin made an extra effort to keep me on schedule. Great experience with Dr. Godin and his staff!
Dr. Godin was great! I saw him for the first time earlier this week and he told me something about my throat that no ENT doctor ever has! He's totally honest and has an awesome personality! I highly recommend him!
I think Dr. Godin is great and would recommend him to my closest friends and family.
He's the best!
It was my first time seeing him. He is a fine doctor. I am so glad to have found him. I would recommend him unreservedly.
The doctor was good and very knowledgeable. However, the reception staff is a disorganized bunch of shmucks.
The Dr. was good- friendly and direct, but the desk staff was very innefficient and disorganized, which was very frustrating.
Although he was running behind he was very apologetic and really listened to everything I had to say. He also made sure I knew that if my symptoms came back or didn't improve with the regimen he gave me, to give him a call and make another appointment so he can dig into more detail. I am a singer and am very picky about my ENT and he was one of the top.
Professional, thorough and understanding.
Very patient and understanding of my ear infection
Dr. Godin made the doctor's visit painless. He was super friendly and had the best bedside manner of any physician I've ever had. He explained everything thoroughly and even helped me find other physicians I needed in different specialties.
Dr Gavin Godin was really helpful . Excellent service, highly recommended .
Improved quality of service. The Italian waiter burgundy coats need to go though. What happened to black being chic & complimenting all?
Dr. Godin was great. He was patient and he explained everything to me.
I've been seeing him forever. Excellent Doctor! I wouldn't trust anyone else. Incredible beside manner.
I don't really know how to review doctors, but I have to admit that my visit to Dr. Godin left a very favorable impression. Dr. Godin is very friendly, professional and (seems to be) knowledgeable. Very nice personality and doesn't push you to make any decisions, just explains what is what. As to the wait time - I went to the doctor on my Lunch brake (his office is 5 minutes away from the office) and ALMOST made it back to work on time. Everything could be a little bit faster, but it is not a huge problem.
Great doctor! I would definitely recommend him.
Found it to be a bit on the expensive side.
He is the best doctor in NYC! Takes very good care of his patients... I have recommended him to many colleagues and friends and everyone says the same thing... he is the best of the best.
He was super friendly and was very knowledgeable of everything. Will def go back and recommend my friends
Excellent service. Very thorough and knowledgeable.
He was really great! Explained things well, timely. Highly recommend
Dr. G is da man!!! Highly recommended.
He was helpful & informative. Extremely friendly. Since I'm new to NY, he provided me with a list of references of other doctors that I can check out.
Great doctor. I'll be going back to him!
Expert. Knows what he's doing. Rushes you. Aggressive when performing observation. Rushes the process. But an expert.
Dr. Godin was very very thorough in examining me and very friendly. I highly recommend him!
Dr Godin was professional, charismatic and knowledgable. He was able to determine that my sinus problem was allergy related and referred me to a great allergist.
Excellent doctor, great bedside manner and always available even when he is not in the office.
Dr. Godin is very affable and shows much interest in the welfare of his patients. He went over very thoroughly the procedure he will do and the necessary follow-up and answered all questions very clearly and made sure that I understood what he said. I have a great deal of confidence in him as a doctor.
Dr. Godin has great bedside manner and had me in and out of the office very quickly. Definitely recommended.
Great doctor and a nice person. He fixed my congested ears right away, and gave me great information to help with my ailment. I will be back for my next ear checkup!
He's a thorough doctor, though it's important to expect a 20-30 minute wait before being seen. He rushes you out of the office, so if you have questions for him be sure to write them down beforehand so you don't forget in the moment. Very quick to refer you to other doctors, be prepared to ask why if you are wary of that kind of thing.
Doc is great - he has a hiccup with his computer which slowed this visit down but they are so great there that it doesn't bother me that much....
New offices are great. Everyone is super friendly and Dr. Godin was great and helpful, as usual!
Dr Godin was very thorough in explaining my issue and freely answered any questions I had. I would definitely recommend him to others.
Everybody in his office, except for the audiologists, were extremely cold and unfriendly. Also, Dr. Godin was quite unfriendly and barely acknowledged me when he stepped in the room and didn't flash the slightest hint of a smile. Also, when he examined my ear he roughly grabbed my head and abruptly turned it to the side. Lastly, I was at the office for a total of nearly 1.5 hours and the entire time I was in the room was never offered any water/tea, reading materials, etc.
I think Dr Godin is great. I was misdiagnosed regarding an ear infection and he put me on the path to getting better. His new offices are nice and the staff is great.
Dr. Godin is very sincere, dedicated and concerned with the welfare of his patients. He listens to his patients' concerns and addresses them fully and honestly. He is easy to communicate with.
David is smart, friendly and patient with questions. He does a great job articulating a medical issue in a way that is accessible but not dumbed-down. He's the kind of doctor who easily assuages anxieties and makes you feel like he's on your side, fighting to get to the root of the problem. I've seen him three times now and have been happy with every visit.
Very nice doctor!
Awesome. The offices were spotless, the staff was kind and professional, and Dr. Godin has great bedside manner and patience.
Friendly, accessible, down-to-earth. Busy but took time with me. Atmosphere is eh. Huge pediatric clientele, which is slightly disarming.
Very knowledgeable and friendly. Quick.
It was far too short. He forgot several times one of my two presenting issues. He signed me up for surgery without having a CT scan!
Very caring and professional. I've found my new ENT!
Dr. Godin to me was very cold. He didnot solve my problems at all. Overall rating, was displeased with his performance.
I waited 55 mins to see him, which made me miss a later meeting I had scheduled because I would have been 30 mins late. He was nice and chit chatty initially but rushed me out the door at the end.
Dr. David Godin is great , he is very good in what he does and he is a very nice person , was actually a pleasure going for this appointament. I highly recommend Dr. Godin.
Warm compassionate and very thorough. Very efficient office and friendly staff
He was warm, thorough, and down to earth. The office also offers pediatric care, but if you're ok with crying babies mixed in with adorable ones, this is a good doc to see.
I was very pleased with Dr. Godin. He is definitely a wonderful and caring doctor and very professional!
Very thorough. Impressive office.
Very professional and knows his stuff.
I thought he was rude and condescending.
Great experience, friendly guy, fixed up my ears quickly!
Very nice, highly professional, clean and modern facilities. Staff was very pleasant and polite. Also thought highly of the audiologist, Dr. Kamp.
Arrogant, rude and very rough. I will never go back.
I have a disorder called misophonia and I was pleased to find out that he was well aware of what it is. Not many doctors do.
first time patient. doctor godin was very thorough and took the time to explain each facet of my examination. after the physical examination was over he was equally thorough in explaining my condition using "every day" language which was incredibly comforting to hear & understand.
The office was clean and the doctor was nice but the wait time was ridiculously long. They messed up calling in my prescription to my pharmacy, but they corrected it on the spot by calling the doctor on his cell phone at 8:30PM. The antibiotic I was prescribed for my sinus infection gave me crazy stomach complications and the nurse called me back to discuss it with me just an hour after calling her, which was nice, but I wish I wasn't on those meds in the first place. So I don't know. Mixed feelings.
Dr. Godin was very thorough, informative and personable.
I just moved to new york a year ago & am still finding the perfect fit for myself. Dr Godin was very informative and helpful! Office is spotless and brand new, very comfortable. Everyone was very pleasant and professional. I will certainly be returning if I have any other illnesses in the future.
Took awhile to get seen, maybe a busy day, not sure. actual check check up was really quick.
Very kind, professional, and knowledgeable
Great Doctor! Really interested in helping solve problem!
Dr. Godin was great. He was very friendly and clearly cares about his patients.
Dr. Godin was very friendly and quick in his examination. I was in and out within a matter of 20 minutes
Nice doctor :-)
He knows what to look for and is quick and professional. He listens to concerns and addresses them.
Great Doctor. Diagnosis was fast and accurate.
Very productive and succinct.
Dr. Godin has a great personality. He was thorough in his exam which was a plus because i felt terrible. He reassured me that I would feel better soon. He also took the steps to help me continue to feel better through a referral.
Dr. Godin is friendly and efficient. He's a terrific doctor who I have recommended to several friends.
He is the Greatest!
I think dr. Godin is pretty good; he's thoughtful and seems to genuinely care for the well being of his patiences....the receptionist and front office staff are complete morons though...
He was very thorough when checked and drained both my ears.
Ask all the right questions and was sincere with my health.
Dr. Godin has a very friendly and welcoming attitude. The rest of the staff was similarly pleasant, and efficient.
great except for the wait in the reception area. there was nobody else there but that did not keep the receptionist from working as slowly as he possibly could.
I like Dr. Godin very much. I have seen him before. But I thought my wait time today was way too long. I waited for one hour before being taken in to see the doctor.
Dr. Godin was very thorough and covered all my questions. Waiting time, while less than 30 minutes, was longer than I would expect.
I will recommend Dr. Godin to my friends, family, and business associates. He was very professional with a personality and spent time answering my concerns.
I liked him. He understood my needs and was a good guy.
His attitude toward my condition seemed to be very sincere and he was very professional when he was doing the treatment.
The doctor was great!!! I would definitely recommend him. He definitely knows what he is doing and takes the time to explain everything thoroughly. Little bit of a wait, 45 minutes, but the staff was nice.
I Loved Dr. Godin, he was so personable and happy. I really felt like he took the time to get to understand my ailments, as well as be very thorough. He took the time to email my PCP, because he knew her, to let her know what was going on with me.
Dr. Godin was exceedingly warm and personable. Very thorough. I'd definitely recommend him.
Dr. Godin is efficient, knowledgable and couldn't be nicer. He gets my highest recommendation!
The doctor was thorough but very rough. He sprayed my nose with numbing stuff without any warning and I did not feel that he listened to me very well. In addition, the doctor's office did not call the prescription to my pharmacy like they said they did, so I had to spend an hour at freakin CVS making phone calls feeling totally crappy just to get my medicine.
One of the best doctors I have ever seen.
He's efficient yet thorough, and has a pleasant demeanor.
HES BRIGHT AND THOROUGH, GOOD DIAGNOSTIC AND FOLLOWS THRU.
Very Satisfactory with my visit and i will definetly would like to be his patient,
He's very personable and diagnosed an allergic reaction that another doctor missed.
My elderly Mom LOVED him.
He is very professional yet friendly. I was pleasantly surprised.
Dr. Godin was fantastic. The wait was a little long, but I think they were having a very busy day. It was worth the wait. Dr. Godin was thorough, attentive and very friendly. He made me feel very comfortable and never made me feel rushed. Highly recommended!
Although wait time was long,I had a great experience. Highly recommend Dr Godin as he was very knowledgeable and helpful
Extremely knowledgeable and looks to do what is in the patient's best interest. The doctor is modern in his approach to interacting with the patient, and the office recordkeeping is modern (computerized) as well. He explains his reasons for recommendations and prognosis. Not all doctors have the ability to communicate well. Excellent physician.
The doctor was great! Very personable, friendly and helpful. I was given a Starbucks gift card for having filled out my paperwork in advance, which I thought was a nice touch. However, it took me over an hour to see him, then had to wait again to do a hearing test then had to go back to see the doctor. By the time I left the office, I had been there for almost 2 1/2 hours! The fact that I left work to go to this appointment created a more stressful situation for me because of time constraints.
Really great doctor and person!! Treats the patient as individual to find the cause of the illness and uses more natural ways for healing. Also spends time with each patient and is very caring.
It was great! I went in for a lump and he checked everything and referred me where I needed to go.
Very professional and courteous doctor. I had absolute confidence in his advise.
Great first visit.
I was impressed. He was quick and sure and helped me through a painful procedure. He was also smart and helpful and understanding about avoiding unnecessary procedures which I cannot afford. He was generous with the free samples.
Great doctor - Im glad he was in the office with all the issues with the snow and weather.
Dr. Godin was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything to me. I highly reccomend him.
Dr. Godin doesn't mess around. No small-talk, all business. Had me in and out and feeling a lot better in under an hour.
The wait was 40 minutes, he could have helped me but just refered me to an allergist that called me to change my appointment time--- not unprofessional, just annoying.
Fine but too long to wait!
