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 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

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...

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.
