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.

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 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 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.

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.

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
