He is very kind, caring and courteous.
He is an exceptional doctor. He is very professional and knows his stuff. I felt very confident that I was in the right doctors hands when I recently had my surgery. I would wihtout a doubt recommend my family and friends
Great bedside manner and he listens. Happy to have him as my ENT doctor.
It was my first time in the office and Dr. Namdar took the time to understand my history. Did a thorough exam and gave me some solid advice.
He spent a respectable amount of time with me and talked me through procedures and diagnosis with extra care and detail.

he is not professional.
He listened was attentive and thorough, and comforted my fears. Great Dr.!

My visit to him was very good and excellent. I enjoyed every bit of him.
Both he and his receptionist we're very hospitable and professional
the most blunt and funniest Dr. that I've ever seen! straight up tells you whats right and whats wrong, and finds answers to all your questions. Super friendly and easy to talk to.

He was very attentive and understanding fully explained my issue and was open to discussing all solutions.
He was right. I was wrong. And my self diagnosis turned out to be inaccurate. thank you Dr Namdar
Very knowledgeable and friendly. Took time to discuss options with me.
He was kind and (for the record) fashionable; my experience was cut short, however. He examined me but could not treat me. Based on my condition, I need an allergist, which he recommended and referred me to, but I would return to this office for other ENT related occurrences.
Dr. Namdar is a great doctor. Very thorough and answered any questions and concerns that i had
Had a septoplasty with Doctor Namdar. Was great with the whole process and he did no push the surgery during my initial visit. Answered all questions that I had and asked if I had any more. Overall great experience and so far happy with the results.
Dr. Namdar was very knowledgeable, patient and kind. Great visit.
Quick, friendly, knowledgeable, and nice. What else can you ask for? It's obvious that he genuinely cares about each patient.
Dr. Namdar was quick in this visit, got me in and out fairly quickly. Not too rushed but definitely did not spend a lot of time with me. I did feel taken care of and appreciated the expediency with the visit.
Dr. Namdar is extraordinarily kind, easy to talk to, thorough, patient meticulous and gentle. He is a rare type of person and especially a rare, type of doctor. He has helped me through a really complicated set of issues that other doctors haven't had the patience or knowledge to deal with. Dr. Namdar is the absolute best doctor I have ever been to. I am so grateful to have found him.
Dr. Namdar was awesome. He took his time with me and explained everything thoroughly. He was very kind, knowledgeable, and professional. I highly recommend him.

A lovely, quick and extremely helpful experience with Dr. Namdar and his staff.
Dr. Namdar was very good, and performed an uncomfortable procedure with a minimum of discomfort.
very attentive, and provided multiple options for my issue. also analyzed the pros and cons for each procedure.
I was 30 min late for this apt and was still seen promptly. Dr. Isaac is veryyy nice and I would definitely see him again!
Knowledgeable, courteous, pleasant.
Had my blood tested and MRY done per the doctor request!!! he never called me back to talk about my results!!?! Kept calling there office!!!! The receptionist kept promising me that the doctor will call me back !!!!! So unprofessional!!!! 5 months and still waiting!!!!
This was probably the smoothest experience I've ever had seeing a doctor in NYC. Receptionist was super nice, and I was seen immeadiately at my appointment time. Dr. Namdar is friendly, thoughtful and thorough. I would definitely recommend him.
GREAT DOCTOR! FRONT DESK RECEPTIONIST WAS ALSO VERY PROFESSIONAL!
I think is was very good. He help me with my issues and gave me some advices to follow them at home.
This was the 2nd specialist I saw and the appointment went great. He was very through and took time to answer all my questions. The staff is very friendly.
As soon as I got there the Secretary started helping me. The doctor spent time asking questions and taking care of my issue. I do recommend him.
Great as always.
Excellent, Highly Reccomended
Fast, efficient, and helpful
Fantastic and will be treated for exactly what I came to see the Dr. For.
Dr. Namdar is professional, and interested in his patients. He listens carefully, respectfully and answers all questions completely. I feel completed taken of and always assured that he is giving me his full attention and care.
Dr Namdar has the most professional bedside manner, he is personable and patient.... Would recommend him to anyone!
Dr Namdar saw me right away. He is always caring, knowledgeable and friendly. I have been his patient for over 10 years. Highly recommended!
Good doctor,everything was fine:)
I hate wasting doctors' time, so I had my questions typed out in advance with a copy for the doctor. He answered all my questions patiently and clearly.
Amazing!!!! Dr. Issac was very knowledgable. He listened to my concerns before given feed back. He made sure I understand my condition and help assist what was best for me. I'm glad I choose him as my doctor. Defiantly will be seeing him regularly
Never have a wait, great at accommodating work schedules. No rushed feeling and everything is explained perfectly.
Dr.Namdar is awesome. For the first time in my 63 years I was able to breath through both nostrils, (on my first visit),,,AWESOME!! I beside great bedside manners , Dr. Namdar let me feel totally at ease , he explain the procedure before and tell you what he's doing. He will always be my ENT doctor. Very friendly and lovely receptionist ,, if you need an ENT doctor ,,, he's the man that walks on water. Love him
Very nice and helpful!
Always happy with Dr. Namdar's treatment.
Excellent receptionist; short wait; professional treatment by doctor; explained what he did before he did it. Overall would definitely recommend.
smooth appointment, wait time was pretty short and doctor was thorough and great to talk to.
Effective, friendly and got it write. I had ear pain, and already had my teeth checked by my dentist (no cavity). Dr. Namdar, examined my ears, nose, throat and neck. He did a quick test by pressing his indexes in the jaw joint (by the ears), asked me to open and close (it clicked)... Before giving me a diagnosis, he referred me to the audiologist (so as to rule out any hearing lost). - What's great about this center, is that they have both audiologist and ENT doc at the same place- no waiting. My hearing turn out perfect. Diagnosis: Temporo-mandibular joint inflammation. Went to the dentist as I had a bridge put on which change my bite. The dentist fixed my bite, and I'm much better now (just waiting a couple of weeks to make sure inflammation is totally gone)
Very thorough in diagnosis and options. I will be back.
Great doctor! Very knowledgable and thorough.
Great doctor! Effective, quick and friendly. Would highly recommend
I was totally pleased by the overall welcoming. His Medical Secretary was very professional and made it a great ecperience. The Dr. was very thorough and concern. This was a great choice, I will definitely continue to be a patient in the future. It is my recommendation that anyone in need of an ENT please visit Dr. Namdar"s office.
Dr. Namdar was friendly, thorough, and very professional. I'm a singer and he quickly diagnosed me with nodules on my vocal cords, recommended the proper steps for care, and helped me set up an appointment with a vocal/speech therapist in his office.
Very professional. I felt he was a good doctor. I just had a little problem with my ear which ended up being a big deal and I appreciated that he didn't try to push unneeded stuff etc...
Dr. Namdar is very "patient friendly", professional, listens attentively and explains procedures clearly. He also takes the time to answer a patient's questions with careful consideration.
It was a very pleasant and quick visit! The front desk attended to me right away and I was treated and out of the office in less than 30 minutes! Dr. Namdar is very friendly and is an expert, so I felt extremely comfortable. It was by far the best experience I've had in any doctor's office. I was HIGH RECOMMEND him to anyone :-)
He was quick and thorough. In the end he listed every option of treatment- starting from the least invasive. Didn't shove prescriptions down my throat and make me feel like i was dealing with a drug dealer rather than a doctor. He even checked out my vocal folds when I asked him to (I'm an opera singer so I just wanted to be doubly sure there was nothing wrong there).
Very good didn't wait long, visit was quick out within 25 minutes.
Dr Namdar is very friendly and sweet - highly recomended
He is very professional and thorough. I had a hearing test with his technician, and got fitted for custom earplugs to help protect my hearing as I travel (subways and planes are very noisy and I spend a lot of time on both). The custom earplug fitting is much easier than it was in the past -- they will call me when the earplugs are in. I am very glad that my GP referred me to Dr. Namdar. His tech is very good, too, but I don't remember her name. Sorry!
very good - assertive and very professional
Dr Namdar is very professional and gave a number of suggestions to help with a TMJ issue. The staff at reception are very friendly and feels like a well run office. Would highly recommend!
I went to Dr. Namdar twice about a sinus infection -- he was very helpful, kind, diagnosed me quickly and accurately, and answered all of my questions. Was very good with follow-up as well. I recommend him!
Fantastic! A very helpful doctor
I was having a minor procedure done, but felt that the doctor leaving the room multiple times during the procedure showed poor bedside manner and lack of care. I wouldn't have minded waiting longer in the waiting room to have the doctors full attention, especially as it was during a procedure. Otherwise, he was efficient and solved my problem.
Informative, patient, knowledgeable and courteous. Recommended!
Everyone was very professional and I was seen in a timely manner.
Very kind doctor. Treated me quickly and encouraged that I ask any questions I might have had (and answered them all as well!). The wait time was not bad at all, and I was in and out in a nice amount of time. A pleasant experience!
The staff was very nice. I was seen right away.The doctor took his time and provided me with information regarding my diagnosis. Although the pill he prescribed has not worked at all, I was hesitant to call him back because of my experience with him during the appointment. First of all, he was very condescending when I told him about my symptoms and said -in a very weird tone- "aww, you must be falling apart" and he also suggested that I should also see a "stress" doctor because the diagnosis might be affected by it and he is not one. It is not a very professional way of suggesting patients to search for stress relief and it is also very strange for a doctor to call mental health specialists "stress doctors". Overall, I was not comfortable with his attitude and I would not have made his attitude a problem if I hadn't hesitated to call him back for a follow-up. I won't be returning.
Dr. Namdar was readily available for me when I arrived 10 minutes early for my appointment. I was in and out of the office before my scheduled time. It was the smoothest, fastest, and most efficient appointment I have ever been to. Thank you doctor!
Very quick dyacnosis. very helpful.
Very positive experience. I was seen right away. Dr. Namdar understood the problem I was having right away and treated me accordingly. I left the office 30 min later problem free. Thank you!
Would gladly recommend him
He's good however front desk was not friendly.. She's not approachable esp to many old patients before me. Otherwise the dr was good.
Very short wait time and I was provided a few at home options to help with my problem. He took the time to ask questions. I also appreciate he wanted to run a test or two before deciding on a final action plan.
Dr Namdar was very warm and took the time to listen to my ailments and answer all my questions. His explanations and instructions were very clear and helpful. I would definitely recommend him to a friend.
He is a Doll, I love his professionalism. Dr Namdar made me feel Comfortable and relaxed. I will recommend anyone to him. And He has a Great smile.
It was a great experience . Very good dr with a lot of knowledge . Examined me and was very patient and nice . Amazing dr
Isaac Namdar is a fabulous ENT. He had to vacuum out my ear to remove something obstructing my hearing - and afterwards a different woman took me for a hearing test. After that Dr. Namdar reviewed all the results with me. The entire appointment took less than 45 minutes, and would have been even quicker if the woman who runs the hearing test was there before 9 (my appt was at 8.30)
Dr. Namdar is the very best ENT Doctor I have ever had. He has been my Doctor for over10 years. Thank you Dr. Namdar! Appreciatively, VMB.
The doctor is always available and the staff at the two locations are extremely accommodating in terms of scheduling, check in and just being a friendly face when your face feels like a pound of lead. Dr. Namdar has performed my first surgery ever with great comfort and outcome paving the way for me to treat other injuries as my surgical experience was near perfect. Since then he has been treating my ears on a maintenance basis. Always with a smile, my visits are 1-2-3 and I feel like myself again afterwards. Thank you to the doctor and the whole team!
Excellent ,. I got there very early for my appointment and they were able to take me earlier, so that was good. Dr. Namdar was professional, informative and very nice.
** PLEASE post my review anonymously, or as "a patient" Years ago, visiting Dr. Namdar was great: pleasant and professional service, very short wait times, and courteous staff. So much so, that I left from my original ENT (for whom Dr. Namdar was covering) to start with him. That all changed at my last recent visit: my waiting time to actually enter the examining room was over one hour, then I waited 45 minutes alone in the room, for the doctor to eventually spend three minutes with me and suddenly leave, mid-sentence. I politely explained that I was running out of time, and he replied that he understood and that he would return quickly. After waiting another 10 minutes, a young woman appeared and informed me that she was the audiologist and that ideas to have a hearing exam. (Such exams take at least a half hour. I then asked to s e e the doctor, because I wanted to ask if I could return for the hearing exam another time, as I was pressed for time. The audiologist seemed offended and replied disrespectfully that's there was no available appointment until months later. At that point, I left the examining room and asked the staff at the checkout area to please page Dr. camera, as I was about to leave and needed to have a few words with him. I waited there about 5 minutes until he arrived. He seemed confused, apologized, and then offered to write me a prescription right there on the spot- why, I don't know; maybe he confused me with another patient?). I expressed m dissatisfaction with him and his staff,, and then he just disappeared again. I left the office annoyed and late for my next doctor's appointment. Later that day, I received a hard up ed voice mail from the Dr. begging me to return his call and not to write a negative review - but not once apologizing for the unprofessional and disrespectful reatment that I received. Needless to say, I will never go back
He is one of the best, very patient and very easy to understand, when pertaining to any issues. He is highly recommended
Dr. Namdar and the entire staff were beyond wonderful. In and out in less than 45 minutes; with that being said, it was anything but rushed. Would recommend this team to anyone needing a fantastic ENT group.
Liked not feeling the doctor was in a hurry!Found him to be cautious and patient.
Very professional, gentle and quick.
Completely dismissive, my symptoms remain and he didn't take the time to listen to the recurring infection I was having. No wonder I could make an appt 24 hrs beforehand.
Great doc. He figured out what was making me dizzy, and after a short course of meds, I'm fine. Highly recommend.
professional, efficient and very personable.
I thought that my wait time would have been very long , I brought a book with me! The doctor explained everything to me and I understood everything ! Leaving was a breez. My next appointment was scheduled and I was on my way!
Great doctor! Extremely thorough, very humorous and friendly. He explained all my options and gave me clear expectations outcomes, reducing unnecessary surgeries. .
Great doctor. Gave me a thorough exam and everything was great. I recommend this doctor.
Dr. Namdar is awesome! He literally saving my hearing about 2 years ago. I hadnt seen him since and when i came into his office 2 YEARS LATER!!! he remembered me. A wonderful doctor that really takes the time to see what is actually wrong with you and doesnt just push you off. Would highly recommend!
Excellent, great doctor, highly recommended.
To be perfectly honest, the check up space used was TINY (the space for administrative assistants was much larger than the doctors'!), and the electricity outlet for one of the instruments to be used was not working. I also felt that some of the cabinets were not very clean from the outside, I kept my fingers crossed that inside they were properly maintained. And as many other patients complained, I too had to wait over half an hour to be taken in. This doctor deserves better!
As I've said on every prior visit - he's top drawer Numero Uno!!
He is an excellent doctor very patiently.
Good visit. Was able to see Dr. Namdar immediately, and although he gave me a prescription, he did not force it upon me. He was considerate enough to see that my condition could be cured over time, and to get the prescription if necessary. Will visit again.
Very professional and helpful
I liked the very short wait time. The staff was very friendly and Dr. Namdar answered all my questions and if I needed to I would definitely go back to him.
Will consult him again for Vertigo issues...he is knowledgeable and friendly
BEWARE! You can hear confidential information being discussed between the doctor and his patients from the waiting room. He does not seem to care about his patients, this place felt more like a factory- just getting patients in and out instead of taking the time to actually figure out what's wrong. I'm pretty sure he triple books appointment times. I will not be returning
Dr. Namdar is such an amazing Doctor. He is very polite, thorough and gets to the point quickly. I had sinus surgery with him last week and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT Doctor. I've never waited more than 15 minutes in the lobby, which says a lot about the efficiency of his office.
This was a routine ear cleaning, but because it came up in conversation, he referred me to a GP which I haven't had for nearly five years. Thank you Dr. Namdar.
Very informative, actually listens and makes you feel comfortable. Definitely would recommend him for someone else. Yes he identified my problem right away.
I had my tonsils removed by him. He was great. I had almost no pain at all and a quick recovery.
DR. Namdar is very professional, good sense of humor. I am always pleased when i leave his office, no more ear pain.
Very insightful! Susan, the receptionist, is very polite and extremely patient!
Phenomenal Man, Awesome Spirit, & very good to talk to. I'm so glad to have chosen to see him and become one of his patients. His administrator was a blessing also. You rock Dr. Namdar!!!
He is a great doctor. Very friendly, but still professional. He knew exactly what my problem was immediately and was able to provide me with the medicine I needed to get better quickly! Highly recommend.
Dr Namdar is a great doctor. He has treated my 6 yr old since he was about 9 months old.
The office. No paper cups at the water cooler. I mentioned it to the receptionist who said she would attend to it, the cups never materialized. In most respects a good and well run office with short wait times, but hey when you've been on the subway since 96th St., and walked 4 blocks from the 59th St. subway, it's nice to have a cool fresh cup of water in the waiting room.
I needed an emergency ENT Dr and he resolved my problem same day. Thanks Doc!
The appointment went very smoothly and he was very friendly, helpful and reassuring.
I really thought Dr. Namdar was very friendly, warm and informative. It is one of the few times that I have gone to a doctor's office and not have to wait for a long time. I had a 10:00 am appointment and I got there around 10:08 am. It took me 5 minutes to fill out the forms and once I handed them in I saw Dr. Namdar like two mins or so later. During the consultation, Dr. Namdar was very attentive and really listened to find out what the problem was. Overall, he seemed genuinely concerned about me and wanted to help and that made me feel very comfortable. Definitely will return!
Dr Namdar made me feel comfortable and confident that I was getting excellent care.
Best hands in Roosevelt.
Dr. Namdar was very professional and extremely accomodating. He went out of his way to make me understand what was wrong. i highly recommend him.
He is a good doctor, but was too quick and fast ...
Attentive listener, pleasant clinical staff. Overall, a good experience.
I saw Dr. Namdar quite a while ago and I never got around to writing a review, but the visit was so good, I decided better late than never! I am a doctor myself and I found his evaluation to be thorough, his diagnosis was accurate and his prescribed treatment worked well. Also a very pleasant man. I highly recommend him and will happily refer patients to him.
Excellent as always.
the visit went well the location is very easy to get to and the staff were amazingly friendly and professional.
Went in for treatment of an ear infection. He is very competent. Explained everything as he went along. I would go back to him next time I needed treatment.
He is really nice and to the point. Will go back to him.
Great guy! Very patient. . I had to call him in the middle of the night after an ER Visit- and he was great!
Excellent. Gets right to the point. Not long on schmooze. Wanna schmooze? Go to a shrink. ENT issues. He's yer man!
Dr. Namdar is very caring and professional. I made the appt for 9AM, the night before via ZocDoc, and in the morning when I arrived, I was seen right away. Excellent service and no wait time!
Doctor was great
He's straightforward, listens and cuts to the chase.
I seem to need frequent treatment for overproduction of ear wax. At this appointment I was admitted about ten minutes before my appointment time. First time in my life for any type of doctor. Appointments are usually on time or no less than 15 minutes behind. This is a well run practice.
I've been several times. And I'll be back.
I would highly recommend Dr. Namdar. Gentle, thorough and addressed my concerns.
Hes my regular doctor and I wouldn't have it any other way. I already did my research so I knew he knew what he was doing. Three convenient locations too.
Personality of wallpaper paste.
I went to Dr. Namdar with my daughter as a new patient because she was in a lot of pain, and Dr. Namdar was wonderful. He diagnosed the problem in a few minutes, and then took care of it. It was one of the best medical experiences I've had!
I took my 91 year old mother to have her ears cleaned. When the procedure was over he moved her wheeler outside the door, motioned with his hands for us to quickly leave, and said he "had millions of patients waiting." His manner was extremely rude. We won't be returning.
Very patient, answered all of my questions, explained in detail my various options.
Kind, professional and thorough as always.
He seemed confident of his findings and provided me with comfort that my ailment will be resolved with his office procedure and the script he wrote. I'm going back next week for a follow up.
Very friendly & patient.
About the office - When I showed up 15 minutes early, I was told I had no appointment for today, that my appointment was for Friday Oct 28 and I was listed as a "no show." I was told I would be worked in somehow. Nevertheless, at mere moments after 1PM, I was ushered into the doctor's exam room, and he came in about five later. I was in for a followup on ear infection treatment. I was also tested by his audiologist. I was out of there at around 1:45. Dr. Namdar seems very thorough and conscientious. My treatment remains ongoing. When I got home, I reviewed my emails, and indeed I had a zoc doc conformation for my appointment today(Oct 31)at 1PM.
verry good. i like it.
He was quick and professional. Perhaps a little quick, but he was very professional and was able to diagnose what was going on. I would recommend him.
I thought that he was quick and efficient.
Really excellent, friendly, professional.
very helpfull and excelent care. Thank you.
Dr. Namdar was fine, had me in and out in 15 min because my nose was too stuffed for him to see anything. He wanted me to first seen an allergist to find out what I was allergic to because my allergies were so bad. I will not return here however, because of the reception staff. I had a referral from my doctor, but the receptionist was short with me because I did not have my insurance card (moved to a new address and insurance company sent the card to my old address, however all of my information was on the referral). When my appt was finished I had to get another referral to get a CT scan. While the one receptionist was getting the paper work ready she left halfway through because it was her lunch time. She switched off with another receptionist. I had a question about the process of getting a CT scan, but before she gave me an answer she picked up the phone and stayed on the phone for almost 15 minutes. At that point I was so angry I decided not to go back. The reception staff there is very unprofessional.
Isaac Namdar, MD Dr Namdar was very professional and courteous. He examined me and recommended a treatment. I would go back and see Dr Namdar again.
Very cordial, professional and friendly.
Dr. Namdar is very pleasant, knowledgeable and asked the right questions.
Dr. Namdar got to the core of a problem in one visit that I've been trying to get resolved for a year. I can't believe I wasn't here a year ago.
Professional Dr. with great knowledge and experiences
Felt safe, great hands to be at!
Most people I would imagine want more coddling from their doctors but I was on my lunch break and appreciated that the want time was minimal and that he was thorough and confident in what he was doing. Thank you!
