Everything about this visit was wonderful. Wait time was minimal in both the waiting room and the Doctor's office. As well Dr. Sands was a pleasure and very patient with all of my questions.
I've been having problem with my left ear for 2 years and finally went to see a doctor. Doctor Sands was very thorough with his examination, eliminating causes of the discomfort and pressure I feel in my ear. He was patient and addresses all the concerns I have.
Great bedside manner and easy to understand explanations. Would recommend and return.

Came to Dr. Sands with ear/Eustachian tube discomfort last week. Incredibly impressed with his bedside manner and thoroughness in evaluating me. Best doctor I have been to in NYC!
Very personable, informative, caring doctor.
Great experience. Friendly and knowledgeable, answered all my questions and explained things in detail.
Great doctor! He was very friendly and thorough.
Dr. Sands "nose" what he's doing! A friend recommended him to me, and I would do the same if anyone else is in need of an ENT.
I absolutely love this office. Front desk was friendly, Dr. Sands couldn't be more caring. I've never had better or more personal care from a healthcare team and doctors.
Dr. Sands office was clean, the staff was friendly and efficient. Once I filled out my medical paper work, I was seen right away. Dr. Sands was exceptional, he made me feel comfortable by making conversation about the holiday and what I do for work (the tech geek in me loved conversing about our fav gadgets). He also shared information about how to prevent wax build up in the ear, and he was done within 20 minutes. I will definitely be back for a cleaning!
Would highly recommend! I was 15 minutes late and was still in and out in under and hour. Dr. Sands was very friendly and clearly knowledgeable, as he quickly figured out the cause symptoms and had prescriptions sent out for me before I even left the office. If you are looking for an ENT, Dr. Sands should be it.
Dr. Sands was wonderful! This was my first visit with him, and specifically with an ENT in NYC. Extremely personable and caring, as well as very well-informed. Took the time to ask about me and my day which was quite nice and comforting. Got down to brass tax, gave great advice, and I was on my way! Highly recommend. Now my new ENT in the city. :)
Hey Dr. Sands, I don't know if you remember, but I came in with a recently exacerbated tinnitus and I asked for prednisone. The day I started taking it I noticed an immediate reduction in the tinnitus, and over the week it's gotten gradually better. It's currently subsided to the levels before my most recent flare up. I know correlation isn't causation, but I think it's helped a lot.
I was very pleased with the professionalism and service provided by Noah.
He's an awesome doctor. Super nice and chilled out guy. But also very knowledgeable and will take the time to explain everything. Definitely would recommend him! The secretary is also really nice and helpful. Didn't waste my time at all.
Dr. Sands is the best. He explained everything really well despite my less than stellar mood given how sickly I felt. He even had the audiologist run a hearing test on me to make sure the pressure in my ears didn't result in loss of hearing. He took his time both in the room and in the consult office to make sure I understood what meds I would be on and why, and suggested I come back in a week if nothing improved but admitted there was no fast fix. Great all around, would definitely return.
The doctor was very friendly and had a great manner. He listened well and answered all my questions. I would say only downside of the appointment was that the wait was bit long. There were some wait at the waiting room and I was placed in a another room and waited for longer. The doctor told me it happens sometimes and he apologized when he came in.
Dr Sands is extremely knowledgeable and I am very satisfied with the results already from my surgery for septoplasty and turbinectomy just 1 week ago. Highly recommend!
Dr Sands is a true professional. Appreciated all the knowledge he was willing to share regarding my situation. Office was timely and clean.
I arrived late and still was able to be seen in a timely manner. Dr Noah Sands is very informative and knowledgeable. Will continue to see him as my regular ENT.
The office was easy to find and quite accessible. The reception/office team was nice and helpful. There was hardly any wait time before being called back. I visited because of swelling/pain/dizziness that continued long past my cold. I've been to many ENTs, allergists, and the like in my time (I suffer from chronic sinusitis, allergies, and a deviated septum) and Dr. Sands was the first who fully scoped (with camera) what was going on in there. Doing so made me feel secure in his assessment, especially since he didn't just throw me a prescription for antibiotics and call it a day. He was quite helpful. He also had me test my hearing and explained how and why sinus surgery could help me. Thorough and thoughtful. Thank you!
Dr. Sands was wonderful. He was through and honest in his answers to my questions. He did not rush me and took the time to review all my concerns.
He was polite and knowledgeable. I just felt rushed throughout my consultation.
He was wonderful. Great bedside manner and did a thorough intake. Was very sweet and made a new patient feel comfortable.
Dr. Sands was amazing! He was very welcoming and approachable and answered all my questions. He was also very thorough and informational in regards to the potential causes of my sore throat and congestion. Very pleased with my visit
Great Doctor. Highly recomend.
Dr. Sands was very thorough and helped me feel at ease about my concerns. I look forward to going back to him should I have any other issues. He was prompt, compassionate, personable and a great find!
Dr. Sands is amazing. I'm usually a nervous patient, he was great at putting me at ease and listened to everything I was concerned about. Charming polite and professional, would definitely recommend to everyone!
He is a very professional and overall nice person. I’ve seen him on multiple occasions and would highly recommend for anyone who wants/needs plastic surgery. He is always available when I call for questions even when he is not working. He takes his time with his patients and even kept in touch with me on a weekend he was away for a wedding to work with me with my issues. Definitely satisfied overall. Thanks Dr. Sands for fixing the fractures in my face and for always being available.
Great doctor. He listened to my concerns and addressed them accordingly. Furthermore, he took the time to explain everything in a manner I would understand. Highly recommend. Forgot to mention, i literally waiting less than 10 minutes to be seen. Thank you.
Both Noah and the office team are great!
So to start I didn't wait in waiting area to long, maybe 10 minutes. However once called I waited in the room for at least 20-25mins. He said another patient was late which set them back.....Dr. Sands personality was great. He seemed to know what he was talking about. I was initially satisfied for the most part. However I was supposed to get a few prescriptions sent over to my pharmacy electronically. I never received them. I called the office, after some confusion they said they'll resend it. So still nothing for me at the pharmacy. I called again, same results, still had nothing. 3rd call now. Confusion, then well I only see one prescription I'm told. I say no it should be at least 3, finally she sees the others. Im sorry we'll take care of it, I confirm pharmacy info which seemed to be an issue on their end. I cleared that up and I waited. This is over a month now. I only received 1 prescription. I called a total of 4xs. I'm done and quite annoyed and frustrated. Horrible service! Horrible. Thank God it wasn't life or death!
Was really good and thorough explaining to me that my sore throat was nothing out of the ordinary despite it never going away for weeks. Nice, great manners, and felt at ease the whole time.
Dr. Sands was pretty much the ideal person for me to go to. He fostered a safe and comfortable environment and was very thorough and clear when explaining my medical issue. He coupled his wealth of knowledge with a refreshing smile, patience, and genuine politeness. Also, the woman at reception, Susan, was an absolute doll, opening and closing my experience in the office with attention and organization. I strongly recommend this doctor to anyone in need of his services.
Very friendly and professional. Explained everything in a detailed and easy to understand way, and took extra time to really go into detail about how he could help me. Highly recommended!
Awesome doctor! I went in with my ears both clogged up I couldn't hear a thing, my pcp had already tried to remove the wax and couldn't. Dr. Sands within the first 5 minutes of the appointment solved my problem, now I can hear better than before! Friendly Dr at that. Will be returning whenever I need an ENT ??
Dr. Sands is awesome. He's young and is able to understand you no. It was a little difficult for me to explain in medical lingo what was wrong with me, so I had to resort to sound effects and pointing which was a little embarrassing if someone saw how I must have looked. He "gets" it. Very thorough and never rushed and most importantly very patient. Highly recommended.
Knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Will see again.
Great discussion. Listens well and provides useful assistance on resolving conditions.
Dr. Sands is friendly, patient and competent. He really takes the time to listen carefully and asks good questions.
Couldn't ask for a better experience. He's really friendly, personable and listens to you. Definitely will return to him in the future for any ENT needs!
Great visit - Dr. Sands was very knowledgeable and professional as well as very personable. Highly recommended.
Thank you so much. That was a great visit. He made believe again in doctors. He is the first ear doctor who listened to me and he helped me. That was exquisite visit i left very happy. And he was interested he told me about options and i felt very very happy. THANK YOU SO MUCH. Thank you for loving what do you do and thank you so much for listen.
Dr Sands was very friendly and addressed my concerns in an easily understood manner.
Somewhat arrogant and does not listen to patient concerns
Dr. Sands is great! He's attentive, thorough, friendly, and reassuring. He is generous with his time, listens carefully, and answers every question patiently. I do not hesitate to recommend him.
Good experience. Professional and personable.
Intelligent, courteous and informative. Did not feel rushed. Felt I was listened to and all my questions and concerns were addressed. Great doctor!
Everyone in the office was professional and worked very quickly for you to be seen. I waited about 15mins as a new patient before I was seen. Dr. Sands is very intelligent and quick in understanding the care I needed. He performed some tests that rooted out the cause. Assigned me with prescriptions that focused on the problem. A place I'll be visiting again,
If you need an ENT - Dr. Sands should be your top choice! Amazing doctor!
was late to my appointment, was very condescending and told me my cough is perpetuating itself so i should just stop coughing
Dr. Sands - truley a great doctor. i was a little late and he still saw me right away.... and was suppperrrr nice and freindly and verry informative i was actually surprised i wish my primary care doctor was more like doctor sands.The office was clean and pleasant with freindly front desk staff..seriously this is everything you want in a good doctors appointment without anything bad and ive had some baaaad zocdoc doctors expeiences. Ooooh doc sands why cant you be a pcp?!?!?
Dr Sands was very professional, he went to great lengths to make sure I was comfortable and took time to explain the procedure he was performing
Efficient and professional, I enjoy ZocDoc and its member Doctors
He was too rush and didn't feel he reviewed me well. He immediately sent me to lab tests then saw the results and that was it.
Dr. Sands was excellent. He LISTENED to me and he provided solid advice and effective treatment. Also, his 'bedside manner' was perfect. I would heartily recommend him.
I went to him with concerns about a possibly fractured nose from an injury and was in a lot of pain, (but my nose didn't really look any different than it normally does) and he only wanted to talk about how much better I would look with a nose job and how he would "love to fix my nose." I kept trying to move the conversation back to medical questions and asking if I needed to do anything for my nose because I was very worried about the pain, and wanted him to check it out and make sure it would heal ok, and he seemed kind of annoyed and hurriedly answered while trying to get back to the subject of plastic surgery. Why should I settle for having an aesthetically unappealing nose when I could let this man do surgery on me!? Ridiculous. Not going back to him.
Very professional and highly recommended. He took the time to go through all the details and provided excellent information/care. Excellent bedside manners. Office staff is also great. I did my hearing test in no time, and the audiologist too was excellent.
Dr Sands is great. Great listener, explains everything in detail, makes sure you understand everything and puts you at ease. Glad I'm under his care now.
Dr. Noah Sands was extremly nice and very attentive. I felt comfortable and he was very informative.
Excellent doctor, very friendly, was able to work in time to see me even though I was a bit late due to a train malfunction. Makes you feel at ease even though some ENT exam techs can be a bit invasive (having a pipe stuck down your nose isn't most people's idea of a good time haha).
He was very helpful. He didnt rush my appt andbexplained everything perfectly.
first visit here. will I go back here again? ABSOLUTELY!
He was extremely professional and thorough and answered all of my questions. He kept apologizing for my long wait which seemed to be an anomaly there - usually there are no long waits there.
I actually really liked Noah Sands. I saw him because I was having true swallowing get due to the feeling of a constant lump feeling in my throat and swollen salivary glands (I thought were lymph nodes). Although he couldn't do much because I needed a GI, he was very nice and tried to make sure I didn't leave without having all of my questions answered.
Dr. Sands is amazing, amiable, and explains things in a way that's understandable. He was friendly and knowledgeable in his field. I've been postponing seeing someone about my problem but when i finally did, I was able to grab an appointment with an amazing doctor. Thanks so much!
It was an amazing experience!
Dr. Sands was very caring with my issue. He was attentative and i could tell he really wanted to help me. He is very polite and kind, and was very helpful and informative.
He was very welcoming and he really listened too my problem.. As much as he could and Under the circumstances he was very gentle, he even apologized numorous times for the pain I had to endure because of him. He even made sure he talked me through the process and when I needed a break he gave me one.
When I saw Dr. Sands, I'd had laryngitis for 10 days and was really stressed about why my voice wasn't returning to normal. Dr. Sands was reassuring, friendly, and put me at ease right away. He prescribed me the correct medication and I'm hoping to get my voice back soon! I highly recommend Dr. Sands and his practice--you won't be disappointed!
Great experience. Doctor Sands was kind and knowledgeable. I will make sure to book appointments with Doctor Sands for any future ear, nose, and throat issues.
Noah is a pleasant and very informative Doctor. Great manners and showed concern in what I was feeling. He made me feel comfortable while treating me and directed me how to handle my situation. Great Doctor with a great future!

It was a wonderful experience and I would recommend it to anyone
Dr. Sands had great bedside manner and helped with my ear issue right away. He was pleasant, efficient and most importantly, I left the office with an unclogged ear. Highly recommend!
PLEASE TREAT THE ILLNESS FIRST RATHER THAN TALKING ABOUT OTHER THINGS. THAT'S WHEN PEOPLE RUN AWAY. I WENT FOR EAR WAX CLEANING BUT RATHER CLEANING HE MOST OF THE TIME TALKED ABOUT MY SINUS INFECTION WHICH I DID NOT EVEN MENTION.
Expensive, but otherwise good.
Great and thorough doctor!
I have only had only one appointment so far but can already tell that I'm sticking around. The entire staff was extremely nice and welcoming. The visit was quick and the tests/check ups were very thorough. I didn't have the feeling that I was rushed at all and upon check out I even received a coupon for my prescription as the medication I needed is usually very expensive. Highly recommend this practice!
I can't speak much English,but Dr.Noah Sands and his staff treated me very kindly. He was friendly and his explanation was very easy to understand.
Very professional, attentive and great listener! Highly recommend!
Arrived to the office late. Obviously knew a lot but doubted a lot of things I said even though he'd never met me before. Didn't believe me when I said I had allergies my entire life. I definitely have and have seen many other doctors for it. Answered questions in a condescending way. I didn't feel safe to ask him questions or get more information. Also, this location does not have access to higher quality tools and machinery but that was not advertised anywhere.
Dr. Sands was very nice and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him. If I have any future ear pain I will definitely go back to Dr. Sands.
Doctor was really nice!
Very thorough and knowledgeable.
He is so friendly and super nice! I wish he was my primary care doctor. He was very reassuring and listened while I rambled on nervously explaining my symptoms. I would definitely go back to him for any ENT concerns.
I went to see Dr. Sands after experiencing nasal collapse. Dr. Sands spent time addressing my options, answering any questions, and had terrific bedside manner. I really appreciated his compassion as I've been struggling with an auto immune disease and have been going through a hard time both physically and emotionally. He did not pressure me into anything, and talked to me like a friend rather than a patient.
Dr. Sands was very informative and gentle. He listened to my concerns carefully, and thoughtfully addressed each one. Highly highly recommend him!
Explained everything. Would highly recommend.

My appointment went quick and professionally. Dr. Noah addressed all my questions ans issues.
Very responsive to needs. Actually started the appointment early when I showed up early. Friendly and easy to deal with. Was very clear in communication and the next steps that I had to take.
Had my first visit with Dr. Sands and he did not disappoint. I expected a quick first visit with next steps, but instead he took his time, gave me a run down of what he thinks I should do, and ordered more testing on the spot to save time from coming back in the office! I highly recommend Dr. Sands for your ENT needs.
Dr. Sands was very friendly and patient and had perfect bedside manner. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT doctor--he was great!

Dr. Sands is warm and engaging and makes you feel at ease. He answers questions and doesn't deflect as do some professionals. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him for someone looking for ENT Physician. Hal Glicksman
My visit at this office was very pleasant. More than I expected.

Really nice, great bedside manner. Took time explaining everything to me and was thoughtful and thorough! Highly recommend!
If you want a doctor who will take the time to listen to what you have to say, fully examine you, explain to you what exactly is going on with your body, answer any questions, give you the best possible solution to help you feel better (both short-term & long-term), and more importantly make you feel comfortable in a medical office then Dr. Noah Sands is the man you want to see.
The wait was so so short . I was even super late to my appointment due to traveling from another state and they were so very accommodating. Dr Sands was extremely kind , personable, funny, and knowledgeable. I lost hearing in my left ear due to wax blockage . I paniced because I'm a singer and had a performance that night .He cleared up everything and my ears were as good as new . I HIGHLY recommend him .
Informative and friendly. Showed a genuine interest and made me feel very comfortable
