Dr. Loft was an excellent surgeon. I was referred to him by my allergist in order to get treatment for my nasal polyps, along with some other sinus issues. Dr. Loft was thoughtful and kind, and took the time and effortto explain my ailments clearly. He counseled me on all my options, including surgery, but made sure that I didn't feel pressured into making a decision either way. In the end, I opted for surgery, and I'm extremely happy with the results!

This was my first visit to Dr. Loft. His staff was extremely curteous. Dr. Loft could not have been nicer. I trusted him completely after speaking with him for just a few minutes. He described his exam every step of theway. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great ENT doctor in New York City!!!! I will be back for yearly exams.

Dr. Loft was very accommodating. He answered all of my questions thoroughly and quickly, but I didn't feel rushed. I also feel confident that I will be continuing to see him if I have any other issues, questions, or concerns. Theoffice staff was also very helpful. I was seen within a half hour overall; about 20 minutes waiting to be seated and then another 5 minutes before Dr. Loft came in.

Dr. Loft's demeanor can only be described as dismissive. He read my chart and before I even opened my mouth to explain my history and symptoms he jumped to a conclusion. The only good thing that came out of my appointmentwas that he referred me to another physical who was phenomenal and got to the bottom of my condition.

Dr. Loft ended up treating my ear problem and he was informative, careful and detailed in his procedure, so I would trust him. However, my experience with him was similar to my previous experience with ENTs. I come in for amedical problem with my ear; mention to them (to be truthful) about my hearing loss of which I'm coping fairly well) and then the visit becomes a whole unrequested focus about that I should see an audiologist and get a hearing aid. I'm a grown, intelligent, informed woman, and I certainly know what to do about this....if and when I CHOOSE to do it. Aside from this, Dr. Loft is experienced and competent and I would recommend him.
