For my first appointment there was a slight but expected wait to see Dr. Lachman. However Dr. Lachman was extremely professional, proficient and attentive throughout the actual appointment. He alleviated my initial concerns and provided several treatment options, follow up options and covered all of my questions. I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a ENT.

At times there can be a bit of a wait to see Dr. Lachman, but that is due to the personal and thorough treatment he gives each of his patients. Highly recommended!! Additionally, his staff is extremely helpful and pleasant. Always a great experience in the office.

Long wait times, even for quick follow up appointments. He seemed very thorough, very kind, and caring. They only take cash or check, which is totally fine, but I wasn't told this until I came in which was rather inconvenient-should show on zocdoc!

Office is straight out of the 1970s. Dr. Lachman himself was attentive and is obviously well accomplished, but having to wait, then having to stand (I have joint issues) and wait some more, staring at files of old school paper medical records, listening to the cadence of an actual typewriter, well, I wasn't sure if I had entered a medical museum of if I was actually seeking treatment. Then there were the issues with trusting how the office staff operated (I was asked for a co-pay in cash only right after I heard that staff member confirm on the phone with my insurance the fact that I do not have co-pays), I think I will pass thank you very much.

The doctor himself has a nice demeanor and bedside manner but the wait it horrific and not worth it, especially for simple procedures/check up. My appointment was scheduled for 11am, it is now 11:55am and I'm still waiting and there is one person still ahead of me. The doctor definitely overbooks his appointment book to the detriment of the patients. This is just terrible business practice and is enough to turn me away from seeing him ever again. The sad part is this has happened in my last two appotnments where I also had ridiculously bad wait times but I chose to come back because it's close to my office. My mistake and never again.

The doctor was professional, knowledgable, kind and gentle when putting scope through my nose. I am very sensitive and do not tolerate pain well, but the procedure was done so skillfully that I was comfortable. Definitely my doctor for any future ENT issues.

I can overlook older equipment as long as it is cleaned, etc. No problem there. I can understand not having the latest computers/software. Over an hour wait?- normal. Unable to pull up my video I brought from another doctor- weird. Not taking credit cards? No excuse.

Dr. Leigh J. Lachman is the greatest doctor with his excellent bedside manner, and his devotion, his caring and of course his work is excellent. He made me feel like I was his family. That's how much he cares. He's always very pleasant. He used to be the ENT doctor at the Local 3 Union Medical department. Even though he isn't there anymore, you still hear people singing his praises there and elsewhere.

Nice doctor - but the wait time was a little long. I only went there for a basic procedure and he took care of that swiftly and professionally. Seemed like a guy with a sense of humor, if that's what you're looking for in your doctor.

Dr Lachman is very good at what he does and is very friendly. He took care of all my needs when ever I had any sinus issues. He also performed surgery on my nose so that I could finally breathe. I haven't had a sinus infection since the surgery which was almost 5 years ago. Would recommend this lovely man to anybody looking for a top notch ENT.
