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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.
