Mirriam is a pure ANGEL. There was a mistake with my insurance and she let me see the doctor anyway. I NEVER EVER went to an office that did that and that was so nice to me. They usually wouldn't evenlook at me and probably not even tell me to leave or that I even exist. I was really blown away with how kindly I was treated by both Dr. Bendelstein and Mirriam. Not only that, but the doctor was also interested in what I had to say! I told him about how my ears are shot because of scuba diving and we had a fun convo. I was really happy with all the kindness I received that is almost non-existant in NYC. I came from Brooklyn to Far Rockaway too, it was the only time I had and he was the ONLY doctor open on a Sunday. Really really impressed

I was very impressed with the service I received at the doctor's office. I was out of the office 15 minutes after my scheduled appointment and my issue was fully addressed and the doctor was able to help right away. Very pleasant experience visiting this office.

HORRIBLE!!!!! DIRTY FACILITY. HE WAS BREATHING ALL IN MY FACE THEN GRABBED MY FACE WITHOUT GLOVES. I ASKED HIM TO PLEASE PUT ON GLOVES AND HE DIDN'T. I TOLD HIM I WAS HAVING A HARD TIME HEARING, HE IGNORED ME. ATTHAT POINT I GOT OFF THE CHAIR AND WAS READY TO LEAVE. HE TOLD ME HE WAS GOING TO PRESCRIBE ME SOMETHING AND HE WANTED ME TO SEE HIM IN A MONTH. I TOOK MY STUFF AND LEFT. DO NOT GO!!!!!! GROSS PLACE AND GROSS MAN!

He diagnosed my problem, and explained it to me and gave me a prescription. It will take a few days, or more, to know if his diagnosis was correct.

Found the office to be very small, not professional looking. Chairs in waiting area were not accommodating for large bodied person. Doctor did not introduce himself or wash hands before touching patient. The wife/secretary kept coming inand out of the examining room and giving her opinion. Overall not a good experience. What I came for was not addressed. I would not recommend this doctor

When I walked in and saw that the patient apppintment sign in sheet was behind, I just sat down and took a nap until I was called. The time with the doctor and his diagnosis was about 5 to 7 minutes,then he handed me a prescription slip for apparently an over the counter drug that unfortunately was not covered by insurance.

First of all the office's appearance,dirty you can named everything but not doctor office,The doctor himself no profesional ethics at all, the examination was superficial, he sang during the visit,after less than 3-4 min "the job is done"he said meanwhile my ears condition become worst,,,,,,So the only choise I had was to leave the office .I am disappointed and the same time even frightened.

I arrived early and the doctor hadn't arrived yet. I was seen in a timely manner and with an interview about my problem he set about to seeing what can be done. There was some discomfort in the treatment but thatwas explained before he started. He was professional in hi treatment.

The doctor was extremely thorough and educated. It is extremely hard to find a great year nose and throat doctor in the Brooklyn area. I was very impressed with his office and his staff as well. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a great ENT.

The doctor was late. Assistant told him what my problem was - left ear - he looked in my right ear instead and had to be told by his assistant and myself, that the problem was in my left ear.

So i had an appoitment with this Dr, initially when i went there the receptionist was great. After about 20 minutes I was seen by the doctor. When i arrived in his office it looked a mess. I was there becausemy ear was constantly itching and i had headaches. This man went in my ear and used a long qtip and dug so far in both of my ears that i had to scream out in pain. He said " im just trying to take out the dry skin you have in your ears" so i said " okay" he then gave me some cream and told me " just use this cream" without any explanation. So fast forward a few hours, I am now in bed and every time i lay down i felt as though i couldnt hear at all, my ears were completely numb. I felt like i swimmers ears. Something told me to get up just to see whats going on with my ear, my pillow was covered in BLOOD. I dont know what this doctor did but now im in pain with a bloody ear. Never ever again!!!!!!!! Im calling him early tomorrow and he WILL have to give me an explanation.
