Thought he can help but did not want to really take the time. Wasted my time going to the city. Never again see him
I booked my appointment on Zoc Doc for 10am and was quite pleased with the whole process. I got to the office 10 minutes early, signed a couple pieces of paper and sat down to settle into what I thought would be the dreaded expected wait in a doctor's waiting room. Guess what? They called me in at…10am! Dr. Loft made me feel comfortable (as I'm quite the wimp), cleaned my ears, I made my next apt. and I was off by 10:30! Sweet…
He was very professional. He explained everything very clear and made me understand. All staffs are nice. Place is clean.

Professional and knowledgeable doctor. I will recommend to my family and friends.
Dr. Loft was excellent. He spent so much time talking with me about my condition and addressing my concerns. In my past experiences, doctors spend about 3 minutes with me in the exam room. Dr. Loft spent at least 15 minutes with me and was extremely thorough. Also, I only spent 5 minutes in the waiting room. He also was very gentle during his examination. He really put me at ease and I felt 100% reassured that he is a competent, professional doctor. I would highly, highly recommend him to anyone searching for an ENT!
impersonal and unsympathetic. offered no solution
Excellent! Glad I found him on zocdoc

Waited about 15 minutes. Doctor was very friendly and thorough, would definitely recommend.
Dr. Loft was very professional and immediately discovered the problem. He explained everything as he went along, and even checked my hearing with the office's audiologist to make sure there weren't any underlying problems. Very thorough!
Very thorough, calm, explains everything takes time to answer questions.
My first impression was that the office was neat, the waiting room was clean and I was greated by a very friendly receptionist. I completed all of the new patient documentation online so all that was required to complete the intake were a few signatures and a copy of my insurance card. This phase of the process was seemless. My appointment was at 11:00, I was seen at 11:00. I was shocked. Dr. Loft was pleasant, thorough and explained each component of my exam and the treatment I was to receive. The prescriptions were sent elctronically to my pharmacy. This was by far one of the best experiences I have had with a medical office.
Very professional and very friendly. First visit and acted as though it had been numerous. Waited, went in, had an examination, went back to the waiting room for the doctor, had an evaluation of the examination, and then finished, all in under an hour! All considering how busy the office was, that's extremely impressive.
Dr. Loft saw me within minutes of my arrival - no inexplicable, extended wait time. His exam was thorough and he explained everything to me very clearly. Highly recommend.
Great service, warm attitude, and patient !!! All members(staff) were warm and professional and effective. In addition, the office was very clean and calm. Thank you for your time and support. Marcia P.

Dr. Loft was thorough in conveying all options I have for my medical issue. He clearly explained all my options and possible outcomes and side effects giving me a window to decide what to do. I respect his decision to about surgery very much. He explained how to function without out surgery and the consequences of surgery, and asked me to take a month to think about it and decide. Very professional. I am very lucky to have found him on Zoc Doc.

Thought the doctor and his office were excellent! I´d been debating between going to a bigger, urgent care practice or this private practice for a facial injury. Although I did have to go to a third-party for x-rays, and had some logistical issues getting the results back to the doctor quickly, I´m very glad I chose Dr. Loft and would recommend him to others!

What I really appreciate the most is that dr. Loft spends time to explain issues and provides détails: I was there for a general visit due to a tonsillitis.

Entire appointment and procedure was 25 minutes from beginning to end. Staff was friendly. Dr. Loft was thorough but efficient and prompt and had a good sense of humor about all aspects of the appointment.

Dr. Loft is a wonderful caring doctor that takes time with each of his patients to address any and all concerns. His assistant Adrienne is phenomenal and is a real asset to his office.
The whole experience was the absolute top notch! I myself work as a physician's assistant and have a foreign MD degree, therefore I am very familiar with the set up in medical offices and always prepared to have some wait or lack of coordination here and there. There was none of that! This office is an example of how to run a perfect office with excellent care! Thank you!
This was an extremely efficient, friendly, and informative office. Dr. Loft is one of those physicians you hope to get - the kind that educates you about what he's going to do before he does it, and the purpose of each exam. I've seen ENTs all my life -- I was so impressed, and can't thank them enough for getting me in in a pinch!
He was patient and took the necessary time for a proper health check. He explained my health issues and potential follow-up scenarios.Thoroughly satisfied with this appointment.
This was a very organized and efficient office. I was speaking with the doctor within 15 minutes of my arrival. He was extremely professional and went through possible causes and various treatment options while settling on the most conservative path of treatment. All doctors and their staffs should be as efficient and helpful. Highly recommended!
Very pleasant and professional. I was seeing him for a very non-complicated issue.
Very professional. Nice and helpful staff. Will go here again.
It was a long wait but worth it! I really liked dr. Loft very professional and didn't feel rushed :),, very nice staff as well and I felt like he really listened and was willing to work with me and figure out my sinus issues.
Got what I needed.
As always, very professional, prompt, and very knowledgeable. Thank you.
Professionally staffed office. Receptionist was very good. Dr. Loft had excellent communication skills. Didn't feel rushed. I had his undivided attention and he was very helpful.
I felt rushed. Will not come back.
He was very nice and straight to the point. He recommended alternative care after examinination was as he anticipated.
Today was my first appointment with Dr. Loft. I was seeing him for a second opinion consult on my chronic ear infections. He gave me plenty of time to update him on my long history of ear problems. I know a lot about my condition and instead of trying to tell me what I already knew, he treated me with a great level of respect. Then talked to me and made sure I knew everything that was going on. He was very gentle with his exam. I highly recommend! He'll definitely be my primary ENT from now on.
Dr. Loft is very approachable, makes you comfortable, and does not rush you. Nor is he keen on drugging you up with prescriptions. He goes through extensive testing to determine the root cause of your problem. Mine was acid reflux! Who would have known. Highly recommend.
Best doctor's office and Dr. Loyd was AWESOME! I was seen right away and I felt like I was in good hands and got answers to the issues I was having! Wish there were more offices like this!!! Going to the Dr. would never be a hassle~
The assistant is very attentive while the doctor seems not patient.
My visit with Dr. Loft was very positive. He put me at ease. He knows his stuff AND was very kind. I was impressed with his mix of professionalism and humanity.
I have been a patient for a couple years and I have never had a bad experience. They go above and beyond whether you are in the office or having procedures outside of the office. Dr. Loft is a great doctor very knowledgeable and I recommend him to anyone needing the best ENT.
I have a lot of severe ear problems and am particular about who I trust with my health. Dr. Loft is a very knowledgeable doctor and really takes the time to listen to your concerns. Very friendly and really made me feel comfortable and in good hands. I would highly recommend him to someone who needs a good ENT!
DR. Loft was extremely informative and helpful. He definitely took his time to explain things to me and offer his recommendations for bettering my condition
Very personable and professional. Staff was highly attentive and friendly with waiting time very minimal.
I was called as soon as I gave my paperwork in. 30 minutes later, my ear was cleared, hearing test administered and I was out the door. He was very thorough, explained everything, listened and I didn't feel rushed. Even gave me advise about my daughter, though she wasn't the patient. Will definitely return if needed!
He is one of the most professional, kindest, and knowledgable doctors I have ever been to. He immediately put me at ease and was very attentive and caring. I can't tell you what it means to me to be treated like a person, not an insurance number.
I found Dr. Loft to be very personable, thorough, and efficient. In a brief amount of time, my condition was addressed and he gave very thorough explanations.
Very personable, informative and no-nonsense. Would recommend.
He was very clipped and short and didn't really answer my questions to my satisfaction. Seemed like he was rushing through the appointment. When I tried to explain my opinion and just give him some general background about my condition, I got the impression that he was thinking, "oh this girl doesn't know what she's talking about". Wouldn't go to him again.
Excellent. Professional. Little wait. Strong team.
I have seen this doctor twice because my ears get clogged fast and often. Dr. Loft is amazing. Very understanding, let's you express how you feel and what you hope to come out of it! He is a miracle worker, his knowledge is awesome. He explains everything that he's going to do and talks you thru the whole process.
It was a very good experience
Dr. Loft was extremely knowledgeable. He was pleasant and listened to my concerns.
A friendly and accommodative office staff and a doctor who is definitely an expert in his field.
Dr Lloyd was excellent! I have an ear problem that I've been consulted on before. However never as thoroughly as what Dr. Lloyd did. He took his time to explain my condition, to the extent that I fully understood him and I felt that all the information sank in. I also told him at the beginning of my visit that I've had bad experience with my previous ear Dr. and that it's caused me to be scared and tense whenever someone takes a look inside my ear. Here as well Dr.Lloyd did an excellent job by being understanding and extra careful. His nurse was as great! Thank you for everything!
Dr.Loft was incredible. He was so kind and informative and just plain old terrific. I would highly recommend him!!! The office was clean and the staff was very friendly.
He was professional, respectful, explained everything without talking down to me. His staff was courteous and friendly and very helpful. Very positive experience. Highly recommended!
Nice guy. Very knowledgeable, I just wish he would share more. Felt like he could have given me more advice after my examination.
He was very informative about their system in the office worked, when the results from a test would arrive around the holidays and he does his job in coming to a diagnosis. But he does like to hear himself talk, I had interrupt him a few times to get a word out. He's very professional, quick and concise. Going back again
Dr. Loft performed my sinus surgery and fixed the recurring painful sinusitis that I had had for years.
Dr Loft listened to my description of the problem, asked useful questions, and gave me a detailed description of his diagnosis and treatment. I was especially pleased that he recommended not starting with antibiotics first, but only moving on to them much later if necessary.
Very kind and professional. Explained everything in detail and had great bedside manner. Would highly recommend him.
It was a pleasant experience. The doctor was great! He listened and responded to all concerns and questions I asked. I will definitely go back there again.
He was very concerned and patient. When he used the nasal scope he was gentle and it didn't hurt. He explained my problem clearly. I would definitely recommend him.
It was great, would definitely recommend! He listened carefully and spent time talking to me and explaning.
Everyone was so nice and personable. Very quick service without a long wait and I felt like they really respected my time. As a first time patient, they made me feel as if I had been seeing them for years. Great experience!!
I found him to be very attentive and professional. would highly recomment him.
This was my first time going to an ENT and Dr. Loft has now set the bar pretty high! He was kind, took his time explaining every step of the procedure I needed to have done, and was very informative. Wish every doctor took this extra step with his or her clients.
I was taken care of right away and was in the exam room within 5 minutes of my appointment time, even though it was my first visit and I had to fill out paperwork. He listened to my concerns and thoroughly explained the possible causes and procedures he was doing, as well as the possible treatments once he determined what was wrong. His staff was great and very friendly. Would definitely recommend.
Really happy with the detailed information about my condition. Had an excellent experience.
Dr Loft was - as always - excellent, thorough and extremely friendly
I think he was awful. He was so arrogant and mean and not nice. He did not make me feel comfortable and almost made me want to cry. I left immediately and made another appointment with another ENT. He was rude and I would never go back to him again. I never wrote reviews but I had to for him. Seriously go to another ENT.
He fixed an infected ear piercing right up and no issues since.
Outstanding physician and extremely nice individual.
very good experience. professional staff and very thorough examination and explanation from the doctor.
Very personable and knowledgeable. Explained everything in informative and accessible language.
Highly recommended. Fantastic bedside manner and all-around nice guy.
Extremely positive experience
I thought he was a great doctor. He was very friendly and very attentive.
Very professional, made me feel very comfortable. Highly recommend
Very impressed with Dr. Loft. After quickly filling out the paperwork, I was seen before my appointment time. There was no overcrowded lobby, etc. He listened to my background and asked many questions to get the full story. Great bedside manner and is really thorough. Highly recommended for knowledge, bedside manner and convenience.
Great, would recommend to friends or family.
I thought Dr. Loft was professional, informed, and very personable. He didn't dumb explanations down, which is nice for a person like me who likes getting as much information as possible. He's a great ENT who definitely knows what he's talking about.
Positives: - everyone very friendly, including Dr. Loft - Dr. Loft was very thorough in his explanation about what I had and how it came to be and how to treat it - Dr. Loft was very careful and sensitive about the quick 5 minute procedure he had to do in the office - Dr. Loft asked many questions Constructive criticism: - before the appointment ended, Dr. Loft should have given 20 seconds for me to think of any further questions and another 1-2 minutes to answer them. He had answered many of my questions through the course of the appointment, but having a quick breath of air to think of any further questions would have been nice.
Very professional staff, very organized and helpful. The Doctor spent a good amount of time explaining things and overall a very good experience.
It was pretty quick and took all the necessary tests to figure out what's going on with my throat. What i liked about him was the fact that he didn't rush into giving me antibiotics. Instead he took tests to certify it is a bacteria or a virus. Based on the result i will take (or not) the right antibiotic instead of trying couple of them and see which one works.
He was very knowledgeable and patient and gave me options instead of automatically putting me on meds. Definitely would go back again.
Dr. Loft is always very thorough, he treated my ear infection beautifully; felt better in one day
A no-nonsense and efficient appointment. As a first time patient, I was in and out without any issues. I received top notch service, no hassle and what I needed. Greatly running practice Dr. Loft!
Pros: very quick and professional, almost no wait time Cons: office wasn't the nicest
Dr. Loft was listened well to my condition. He checked thoroughly and told the limitations and powers of available medications.
Excellent as always !!!
Dr. Loft took the time to explain symptoms and treatment, and more importantly, listen to me without myself feeling rushed or hurried. He and the office had a personable and calm manner - a rarity in New York City. I highly recommend Dr. Loft.
The doctor was great but his staff to me really was not. I was happy with the treatment of his staff but his assistant was great. He did a great job and understood exactly what I needed but like I said not happy with his staff. Hopefully I only have to go maybe once a year or every other year.
I was extremely pleased with the entire experience.
Dr. Loft was very personable and explained his analysis with good detail. He made you feel comfortable enough to ask questions. I highly recommend him.
A caveat to the time wait - this is the second time I've visited Dr. Loft and the first time I was sent in to see him almost immediately. This one was a longer wait but to be fair, as soon as he entered the room, he apologized profusely and explained he had an emergency that morning, so I think that's forgivable. Dr. Loft is incredibly professional and willing to take the time to explain his diagnosis as well as any questions you may have. What I found most impressive is while he did find an infection in my nasal cavity, he didn't automatically prescribe me antibiotics since he believes this is something that is self-curing in a few days, provided I take good care of myself. He then suggested some home remedies and OTC medicine I can take to help alleviate my symptoms. This is something that I have found is rare among doctors as most are overeager to prescribe antibiotics and be done with it; very few are as thoughtful about their examinations and prescribed treatments as Dr. Loft. This is not to say Dr. Loft won't write prescriptions for antibiotics - my first time I was suffering from a severe viral infection and he immediately gave me a strong antibiotic to help combat it (right in time too as I had never felt worse). It is from these two experiences with Dr. Loft that I can confidently say this is a doctor who knows what he is doing and I would recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Loft is has a pleasant bedside manner. He explains everything he's doing while he's examining you, and thoroughly explains his diagnosis. He wasn't super quick to prescribe antibiotics until labs were back which was nice. I would definitely recommend him.
He was extremely knowledgeable, polite, and helpful. He realized that I needed to see a different specialist and was not pushy on who to see, instead explaining that I use caution because many doctors have switched to more of a cosmetic practice. I would recommend him 100%!
He fully diagnosed my problem and was able to assist me further.
One of the best doctors I've been to in the city.
He was great. Very personable and knowledgeable, and his staff was lovely.
I felt that the staff was friendly and courteous and Dr. Loft explained and reviewed my situation with clarity and understanding.
I liked his demeanor which put me at ease immediately and he was very professional. He did not waste my time or money with unnecessary tests and that was very refreshing. He questioned me thoroughly and I agreed with his diagnosis. Also, his office staff were all very pleasant and personable. They were all very welcoming and patient with everyone. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT doctor.
He did not address my chief complaint. He was very presumptuous and I felt rushed. I left feeling confused and frustrated.
Dr Loft is very competent and friendly.
Dr. Loft was very detailed when discussing my symptoms and put me at ease. I would certainly recommend him. The only issue was a slight wait time to see him, but that was to be expected and not a big deal.
He was very thorough and helpful. He made sure that I have all the diagnosis done and spent extra time to properly prescribe treatment.
I liked that I was seen fairly quickly. Dr. Loft listened to what I had to say and had a good bedside-manner. He was interrupted by an emergency phone call, but apologized profusely. He was caring in his diagnosis and did not just give me antibiotics and push me out. I'm very pleased with him and would go back definitely with any ENT issues.
Dr. Luft's staff is so pleasant and I was seen by the doctor right away. He has a very calm demeanor, explains things thoroughly and answers all your questions. You don't feel rushed which is rare in NYC.
excellent visit, very polite and knowledgable doctor, takes time explaining issues / possible causes. Highly recommend!
Excellent. Explained everything thoroughly and did not rush. The staff was very pleasant as well.
He was educated and very professional
Although I felt a bit like talking to a lawyer, and doctor Loft wasn't the type of doctor I usually seek personally, he acted very professional and seemed to be very competent in the diagnostic approach.
Dr. Loft was highly knowledgable and very pleasant to speak when we met. He provided a full and thorough examination and gave me a very accurate diagnosis and explanation of the steps I should take going forward.
The office is very clean and modern Staff was very friendly. Dr. Lloyd was very thorough and explained everything to me. He was very attentitive and answered all my questions. Not only did I get placed in a room right away but hardly waited 1minute before I actually saw the doctor. I went to get something checked out in my nose and told him to was nervous about the camera but he was very gentle and things every step of the way. Highly recommended!
Excellent. Very knowledgable and thorough. Highly recommend him.
I have been a client of Dr Lofts for 10+ years and he is the best ENT I have been to in NYC. I have chronic ear issues and times throat as well, and Dr. Loft is always conservative in his approach, he doesnt over medicate, but his treatment is always right. Great demeanor and he makes himself available off hours for emergency medication issues.
Dr. is consistently professional and friendly.
It was very good he answered all of my quetins and then some. He took his time no rusing me out of the office. I would go back and recommend him to others.
Found his staff and Dr. Loft to be helpful and professional group.
Very professional and thorough.
Office staff very efficient, organized and extremely pleasant - with virtually no waiting time. Systems are completely electronic - from the medical health records to scheduling, etc. Office very clean and modern. Dr. Loft was very thorough and didn't make me feel rushed at all - completely explained my issue (from the causes to maintenance going forward) and was very personable. I would highly recommend Dr. Loft and his practice, generally!
Big fan! No wait! And he treats Rihanna. Fancy!

Great location, great customer service, and an overall welcoming office.

Excellent doctor. Very friendly and helpful.
The whole process was great. The doctor was informative and helpful. He took me right away and I was in and out within 30 minutes. The staff was extremely friendly as well.
He seems very competent but decided to wait for me to have a cat scan before proceeding further.
very thorough and professional
Dr. Loft is great, I would recommend him without a second thought.
Overall good experience. Was a little discouraged to be told I need to go to another doctor. Start to feel passed around, hope he's correct.
Visit was awesome... Doc was great, took his time and didnt make me feel rushed like most. Thumbs up!!!
Dr. Loft is a wonderful professional. He is very thorough and informative and has a pleasant disposition. He was apologetic of the fact that I had a long wait time - due to traffic circumstances beyond his control - which was fine since his staff is so nice and waiting room comfortable and clean.
Knows his stuff. Nice but cuts to the chase. Autographed picture with thanks from Rihanna on his wall.
I thought Dr. Loft was fantastic! Very informative and he answered all my questions. The other thing that impressed me was that he was very interested in my health history and was very concerned about possible drug interactions with any meds he might prescribe. His office staff was also VERY efficient and I was able to fill out all my forms on line and no wait time for check-out!
Really friendly staff, extremely caring doctor. Best ENT I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot of them over the years with my chronic ear infections.
Dr. Loft was outstanding. Very informed and professional and great service both he and his staff. Highly recommend and will go to him again if need be.
Very professional, thorough, and kind.
Very professional, straightforward, knowledgeable and nice. My visit was quick and effective. I'd certainly go back.
Dr. Loft is fantastic. I scheduled the appointment for the same day to deal with some hearing loss issues I was experiencing. He quickly diagnosed the problem, cleared my ear canal using vacuum suction, and I was finished in ~15 minutes. I can now hear more clearly than ever, and I couldn't be more satisfied. Highly recommend Dr. Loft, no reservations. FYI he also counts Rihanna as another satisfied patient :-)
Very professional, kind, and prompt.
He was very nice.
The office was very clean and accessible. The office staff was also very friendly. I only waited about 7-10 mins before I was seen, and I was early for my new visit appt! I would highly reccomend Dr. Loft to family and friends.
Fast, friendly, clear, and helpful!
Waiting time was ok, clean office, friendly staff, convenient location (as for me). Doctor's questions revealed the entire picture of my problem, and he suggested a logical course of action - first treat acute issue, and then address deep-laying ones. Will come back here and recommend to my friends.
Dr. Lloyd was very professional knowledgeable and courteous.
I found him on zocdoc. I trusted other people's review about him and I am very happy to find him. He explained everything! I definitely go back to him.
Friendly and comfortable doctor.
Very personable, excellent staff and office conditions. Very calming, professional and I felt great after leaving the office.
A great ENT - diligent, patient, and compassionate! Highly recommended.
It was nice and his staff made me feel comfortable
I could not have been more pleased. Beautiful, clean, new office. Kind, helpful, informative staff. Dr. Loft himself was wonderful, was able to tell me exactly what was wrong and help me out how I so desired. I am not much a medication person and he was more than willing to work with me and find more solutions to my problem that were more appealing to me. He was kind, answered all of my questions, seemed to know exactly what he was doing, etc. I couldn't recommend him enough!
Hats off to Dr. Loft and his office staff. Friendly reception, punctual appointment, professsional doctor who takes time to explain. Fantastic organization. Well done.
A very positive experience, courteous, thorough and very helpful all around.
Dr. Loft was very thorough. He explained everything, listened and answered all my questions.
The Doctor was personable, knowledgable, and a delight to visit. Highly recommended.
Lovely experience. Facilities were clean and professional, not out of date like many nyc doctors' offices. Dr. Loft was very helpful - he listened to my symptoms, counseled me on what I had (sinus infection) and explained his approach to my medicine. Overall I found the experience to be very helpful for my first time at an ENT. And the meds are working perfectly!
He runs his office like a chop shop. No personal time spent with patients an no customized treatment.
very professional and explaining everything.. he was great
Great experience. Listened to me...explained process honestly and clearly...executed procedure effectively and provided relief. I would reccomend Doctor Loft without hesitation.
Knowledgeable and friendly
Visit felt a little rushed. Guess that is the trade off for staying on schedule. The person after me hadan appt 15 min later, so he has to be fast to stay on schedule. After the visit one assistant took the payment but forgot to schedule my follow up appt. I got an email to fill out the forms online but didn't have a code needed because I booked online.
Very good – explained everything clearly. I needed a hearing test and hearing tests were not done on the day I visited so I had to go back. not a great problem for me but it could be for others.
Great office, great staff; Dr. Loft spent a good amount of time reviewing my history, using a fiber-optic scope, and give his professional opinion. Overall an excellent experience.
Very thorough and wonderful experience. He got right to the root of my problem with no B.S. and took a very calm approach with everything. Very professional and personable, which is what I look for in an ENT.
Dr. Loft was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend him.
I really liked Dr. Loft! He was very friendly, thorough, knowledgeable and professional. He even modified his care plan for me based on my specific issues demonstrating that he really does listen to his patients and tailor his recommendations to suit their needs. Will definitely go back!
He's very to the point and knows what he's talking about, however, I didn't feel that he let me speak much about what I was experiencing, which was a little frustrating.
Dr. Loft is great - his office is run very smoothly, I hardly ever wait at all and he attends to his patients in a timely manner, and kindly, and really explains his dianosis.
very quick thorough fantastic doctor
Dr. Loft was genuinely interested in explaining my problem and helping me out, and took his time. I appreciate it when a doctor goes out of their way to explain the condition.
Dr. Loft is an exceptionally professional and fine doctor. I visited Dr. Loft with cauliflower ear resulting from contact sports. He immediately and accurately diagnosed my condition, provided expert advice, and treated it right away. Along with one of his highly professional staff members, Dr. Loft removed the excess fluid from my ear in a highly modern, comfortable, and clean facility. I was very happy with the treatment and recommend him very highly.
The office was very well run, and Dr. Loft was very friendly and helpful.
Zero wait time after filling out all the forms needed for a first visit ahead of time online. He explained everything he was doing and looking for in a lot of detail.
Incredibly efficient office. Saw Dr Loft for an evaluation, got a hearing test with one of his associates, saw Dr Loft again to go over results and get treatment, and was out the door and headed to the pharmacy within 30 minutes. Never felt rushed either. I waited longer to get my meds at Duane Reade. Would recommend this office.
Office staff is very professional and courteous.
Dr.Loft is very professional and extremely knowledgeable. Thank you.
Office is completely computerized. Filled out my "paperwork" online, so no forms to fill out upon arrival. The office is beautiful and clean; the staff is friendly.
This doctor is amazing. He's caring, insightful, and very knowledgeable and understanding.
Excellent Doctor, very personable. He explained everything very well, and resolved my ear issue. I recommend Dr.Loft to anyone looking for a really good ENT.
Real nice guy. Always super helpful. Always fits me in for an appointment. Just a good dude.
Dr Loft was outstanding. We recommend him to all potential patients.
A very positive experience. Very caring, very matter of fact. Super professional and timely. I've found my new doctor.
I've truly never had a better experience at a specialist's office. Dr. Loft was warm, friendly, knowledgeable, professional, smart as hell and helped me get better in time to go on my honeymoon, which meant the world to me. I would recommend Dr. Loft without hesitation.
I think he was very professional, organized and easy to talk to. His diagnosis was clear and straight to the point.
He's very friendly and professional. Wish he wouldn't talk to me like a 2 year old sometimes though.
straight to the point, got the job done.
Went to him for trouble i have with ears when flying, since i got an ear infection the last time I traveled. He checked things out, explained everything patiently and was very attentive.
Dr Loft Immediately identify my sinus issues, and I was later schedule for surgery. I felt so much better. I am now able to breathe and smell things like never before. Dr Loft is very knowledgeable, professional and I highly recommend him.
Explained what he was looking for, what he found, why each was siginificant.
Excellent. Had an "ear infection" diagnosed by 2 different doctors who had prescribed antibiotics to no avail. Finally got this recommendation from a friend to see Dr. Lloyd M. Loft, incredibly smart & to the point, nailed it as a lower throat infection, prescribed antibiotics that worked. Huge relief! Greatly appreciate finding a good doctor like him.
Nice person, very professional. Would recommend him to a family member.
fast appointment, but dr was good
Dr. Loft continues to be a pleasure and a joy to see. His office staff is wonderful and welcoming and he is very friendly and comforting to his patients.
Dr. Loft took the time to explain everything to me. He used diagrams and charts to ensure that I truly understood the situation. He was personable, friendly, and very professional. I highly recommend him!
He was very professional. He asked me a short series of questions about the health concerns which prompted my visit, and gave clear, concise information, and recommendations for recovery.
The doctor and his staff were polite, quick and extremely personable. I have already recommended them to my colleagues!
very professional. got right to business didn't waste any time. i was seen as soon as i completed my forms and was in and out in 20 mintues
Dr Loft was very thorough and informative regarding my situation. A positive experience among many negative doctor experiences. I had an early appointment and was taken in within 10 minutes.
Very courteous and helpful. Identified the problem right away, was in and out within 10 minutes which I appreciate as it was on my lunch break. Would recommend Dr. Loft for any ENT issues you may have. Staff was also very nice.
Staff was very polite. The doctor explained everything and answered all questions.
We thought he was fantastic, and didn't mess around with frivolous info. He got to the point, gave us important info, prescriptions, helped us find another specialist, all in under 15 minutes. One tiny, minor complaint was that he said while they are very accomodating to ZocDoc patients, they also make the office run behind on other appointments. Hmm. I would highly recommend this doctor and office though. The nurses and receptionists were outstanding as well.
Great experience over all. I got to my appointment 15 minutes early (since I was a new patient) and filled out all the necessary forms (4 forms if I recall). The receptionist was very pleasant. She asked to take my picture since all of their files are electronic, which I did not mind at all. Dr. Loft's medical assistant came to get me like 3 minutes before my scheduled appointment and took me in to the examination room. She seems to be a little rough around the edges...but she was curteous and professional. I think Dr. Loft walked in the door 2 minutes after my scheduled appointment time. He was very pleasant as well and VERY professional and knowledgeable (as should be expected). He was thorough with taking my history and went the extra mile and did all of the necessary tests. He prescribed me some new drugs for my chronic sinus issues and Eustachian Tube Dysfunction. Seeing as how I have chronic issues I will likely see him in the future. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs an ENT.
thank you, great!
Excellent doctor and staff
professional, patient and reassuring
I saw Dr. Loft for a consultation on my sinus problems. Dr. Loft cuts right to the point and makes sure that you are with him on the examination, procedures, explanation and treatment. He seemed rushed, but I am always happy to see a doctor who focuses quickly and effectively on the patient at hand without sacrificing the fundamental dialogue of a diagnosis.
Very good doctor, no waiting time. And he has a great staff.
Dr. Loft was very helpful in explaining the deviated septum procedure which I was going to undergo. He preformed a successful surgery and the next day saw me to take the stuffing out. This is day 3 after surgery and my nose is still quite stuffy as I must still breathe through my mouth at night which sucks, but Dr. Loft did tell me this would be a side effect up to a week unfortunately. But Dr. Loft and his staff are very personable and friendly, the office is very clean, and I would definitely recommend him.
Fabulous! Wait time was very short and the doctor met with me immediately. He was very assuring, asked questions and was able to resolve my issue.
This is the first time I saw Dr. Loft. He had a great bedside manner, listened to my problems and explained the treatment regimen in a way that I could follow. He is highly recommended.
Very professional and informative.
He's awesome. Nice. Friendly. Caring.
I would strongly recommend him!
One of the best "doctor related" experiences I ever had. Dr. Loft was patient, went through detailed explanation and was a superb professional.
Excellent! I waited less than 5 minutes. Dr. Loft was friendly, professional, and addressed all of my concerns.
As always, professional, thorough, efficient and personal.
he was very nice, listened to my symptoms. i thought he was great.
really nice and helpful, quick and knowledeable
I cannot believe the professional services I received at Dr. Loft's office. I was not rushed (even though I was the last appointment of the day). The staff was professional and friendly.
