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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
