Dr. Orfaly is a fantastic ENT Doctor. He took my sinus concerns very seriously. He suggested various courses of actions for my condition, informing me of the pros and cons of each, answering all questions patiently, thoroughly, and did not pressureme towards a specific course. He encouraged me to do research and ask questions so I could make the best decision. Ultimately, he was my surgeon for my condition and I am very happy with the outcome. He and his team were thorough and responsive through the post-op procedures and process as well. I highly recommend him and his team!

Dr. Ofaly was the 2nd ENT that I saw, he immediately understood my frustration and need for immediate relief. He recommended and much more rigorous treatment that the first Doctor. I have hope that I didn’t have before meeting Dr. Ofaly. Super nice guy, great people on staff.

Regardless of his bedside manner less than being "warm", that's fine, if you're busy I get it/totally underand. But when you perform a procedure on a patient who asks you to stop because it hurts...and she's crying...you should stop. Terrible experience. Traumatized. Will NEVER go there again.

Dr was great. Receptionist was terrible. Asked me for my insurance cards (forgot them at home). But told her it was all in my information i filled out with zocdoc. She told me she didn't have that paperwork. Then gave mea clipboard with all my insurance information on it from zocdoc. I also said check my file as I was a previous patient and my wife goes there and you could check our files for insurance. Which of course was there. What really made me mad was she printed off my scanned in insurance cards from system and told me "here to keep with you" like I was a 5 year old.
