Great personality, but i was literally in his office for 5 minutes and then referred to another doctor. To have to pay a large copay for 5 minutes and nothing was resolved was terrible! I still have to go to anotherdoctor and pay another large copay. I sure hope it gets taken care of after visiting the next doctor.

Dr. Alleva is simply amazing. Fast and caring. I was nervous because this was my first time seeing an ENT but he was professional and quick. I will say however his front desk staff isn’t the best. Brandon or whatever hisname was is not kind and came off as cold. That was the only downside of the office. However if you’re looking for an ENT then I recommend this this. Once again his front staff eh...... they could benefit from a patient/customer service class.

I was referred by my pcp to clean my hard and soft wax. He took care of that right away. More impressively was that I trusted him to remove a wart I've been carrying in my ear for a decade. Henumbed the area so painlessly and removed the wart so smoothly that he will be my go to doctor for all my ENT needs! Good ear doctors are hard to find. This is my third one and I'm happy I finally found one in the heart of forest hills. Thank you Dr. Alleva!!!

Dr. Michael listened to me explain my condition and knew exactly what to do to help me. The next day I woke up feeling amazing. He is also going to send me to he allergist to help with my other allergyissues. I really enjoyed my visit. It was short, sweet, and to the point. I am happy to finally find an ENT to help me with my sinus health issues.

I was looking for a ENT doctor online and came across Dr Alleva. I ask did this practice accept workers compensation and the web stated they did. When i arrived for my appointment the staff was horrible i ask did theytake workers compensation they told me they don't like to bother with it because its a hassle. When the doctor called me in he was annoyed as well that it was a workers comp case. Horrible service !!

My appointment with Dr. Alleva went very well. He is a very attentive and thorough doctor. he listened to all my concerns and did a few tests . After the tests we talked about the results and discussed the best treatment.I like Dr. Alleva very much and I will be using him as my ENT for future illnesses. I waited about 15 minutes which wasnt bad. My entire appointment with wait time was about 40 minutes and I had to do some tests. So overall it was a good experience.

I personally don't think he was as comprehensive or reassuring as he could've been for my ear pain, but that's not why I'm writing this. I'm writing this because I paid the co pay immediately after the appointment in cash anda year later (today) I got a bill from his office saying I owe them the co pay. When I called to say that I already paid it the lady who answered the phone said ok and that she'll take care of it. Even though I wasn't lying, I find it suspicious that there were no questions as to maybe I was mistaken or maybe it was the doctor's office fault. I really do believe they tried to double charge me and I just thought I should let someone else know. Best of luck everyone!
