Verified Patient Reviews
Doctor was fine. The wait was over 30 minutes!
She was pleasant and patient, took the time to listen . Her approach is conservative , which I appreciated . Overall a very pleasant experience ... I was pleased.
Dr. Nora is the best. Our go to ENT for all 3 of our kids. Great bedside manner and explains things clearly and in language that I can understand!
She is the best ! Thorough, personable, efficient, quick.
Dr. Malaisrie saw me promptly, was courteous and professional, and gave me a diagnosis along with a prescription to address my symptoms. This was about as good as a visit to the Dr. can get.
This is the 3rd time I have seen Dr Malaisrie, she is alway pleasant, explains what she is doing, i always get in right away, the people at the desk are very nice and fast. My experience has always been top knotch.
Dr. Malaisrie takes the time to make a careful diagnosis of an ailment or condition. She does this by asking precise questions and listening carefully. She has done this during my last three visits over the past three years since my first appointment with her.
Great doc and goid communicator.
Dr. Malaisrie was professional and very helpful. I was able to make a last minute appointment (Germantown location) and was seen right away upon entering. Couldn't ask for more!
Dr. Malaisrie is very professional and attentive. I was happy that the office was able to see me so soon for my health concern. Everyone in the office was pleasant and helpful. I am very grateful for the appointment and my concern addressed quickly and efficiently. Thank you!
Loved Dr. Nora Malaisrie! She is both pleasant and efficient. Cannot say the same, however, about the hour-long wait in the overheated waiting room, and the disengaged front desk staff.
She was excellent!
Staff was very friendly and professional - from the front desk to the exam room assistants, audiologist and doctor. Highly recommend.
Amazing, ENT Doctor!
It was great! Both Dr. Malaisrie and the tech/nurse who saw me were great. I was in and out in 30 minutes which is practically unheard. Considering how busy this office was, I'm really pleased.
She is knowledgeable and great with the kids. I wanted someone that would be good and that my kids would love. I have been once before and my return visit was just as pleasant.
Dr.Nora is excellent! Her office is conveniently located, she is part of a fairly large staff, that includes an audiologist on location. She herself is a surgeon who's specialties include pediatric otolaryngology, sinus disease and surgery, and head and neck oncology. She was able to answer my questions, give me advice about what I went in to see her for today, and now I may be able to have a same-day non-cosmetic nasal surgery that's covered by insurance in the future! If you have hearing, ear, nose, throat, or even allergy problems and live anywhere near Germantown, this is the place for you! Highly, highly recommend!!!
The doctor was professionals and took time to listen to my concerns, She suggested a course of treatment and asked me to check back with her if I did not see a change in my symptoms.
She was thorough, patient, and genuinely caring. She was great!
I have always been shown great bedside manner All the Docs are just great
She isn't my normal doctor and appreciated that she was very thorough
Everyone was great, from the nurse, to the audiologist, to the doctor.
She was very good. She made you feel good as a patient and answer all your question. I would recommend her to anyone.
Staff friendly and profesional. Dr. Malaislrie took the time to anwer all our questions and concerns. Waiting time was minimal.
Extremely competent Andost pleasant
It was exelent
Very thorough, felt confident in her diagnosis and treatment plan. Felt very comfortable in her care.
As a long-term patient of this practice, I would see another doctor and tech next time, if possible. The doctor spent a small amount of time on a condition that has caused a great deal of discomfort and the exam seemed cursory at best.
Nora was my second opinion for my upcoming ear tube surgery. She reassured me the risks are rare and that I am a good candidate for the procedure. I haven't scheduled surgery yet but I feel less anxious. I've seen her twice and would see her again.
I felt like the doctor doesn’t care that I am having issues. I am not going back for a check -up. I will find another doctor that likes their job and wants to help solve/fix people’s problems. I have been having issues for a few years now with not being able to smell of taste and finally went to see a doctor and what a waste of time and money. She prescribed me Nasonex. I have already been using Nasonex for the past year so I am not sure why I needed another prescription. She wanted me to come back in a month if the problems does not go away. I feel she is the kind of doctor that says try this…and now this…and then says im not sure why nothing is working for you.
The whole visit was very pleasant and reassuring. All my questions were answered and I have a solution to my problem.
The doctor was very pleasant and professional and took care of my problem, but the office called an hour after I made the appointment through ZocDoc and had to move it back an hour. Also, it took about an hour before I was seen by the doctor. Unfortunately, the office has a rather expensive garage and it does not validate.
Excellent, personable and knowledgeable doctor. Great office environment.
I felt Dr. Malaisrie was an excellent doctor. She listened to all of my concerns and made sure I felt comfortable. I would see her again in a heartbeat.
Treated promptly, courteously and effecively. Thanks
Insightful, sensitive, professional, and helpful.
The office is dirty and the front desk check out person was rude. Our appointment was changed twice and we had to wait one hour and 15 minutes to be seen, without any updates from the staff. The doctor was wonderful, the office and staff, not so!
Dr. Malaisrie was pleasant and competent. The rest of the staff however was unlike any medical staff I have ever, in my life, experienced! And not in a good way! I arrived to my appointment 10 minutes late due to heavy traffic, and I came all the way from Arlington for the appointment. Yes, I own to that however it was out of my hands. From the moment I walked in the door I was ignored for about 15 minutes while the rest of the staff sat around and chit chatted. Finally someone realized I was there and then had the nerve to tell me that because I was 10 minutes late that I had to reschedule - to which I responded that the doctors have no problem with making me wait up to an hour to be seen, yet they cannot accommodate my 10 minutes? It all went down hill from there....until I met with the actual Dr, who again was great. So I would not recommend this practice to anyone, however I have no problem recommending Dr. Malaisre, she was excellent.
Dr. Malaisrie answered all of my questions, whether or not they had anything to do with my visit, without hesitation.
Dr. Malalsrle was extremely professional, spent time listening to my issues, and clearly explained what could be going on and how it could be remedied. I would definitely recommend Dr. Malalsrle to anyone who needs an ENT in the DC area.
The doctor was great...the office leaves a lot to be desired. The administrative staff were unprofessionally dressed - two of them were wearing hoodies - and I called and left messages numerous time for a surgical referral and they never called me back after several days. Good doctors, D- customer service.
Dr Malaisrie is a very competent physician and excellent communicator. Highly recommended. Brian W.
She and the audiologist were extremely professional and gave me the time and patience to answer all my questions so that my worries were erased before I left the office .
Great Service all the way. I would recommend 100%.
Very friendly staff and Dr. was terrific. Thanks!
Dr. Malaisrie is an excellent doctor. I call her doctor, even though you definitely feel like you are on a first name basis from the first moment you are in her care. She is knowledgeable and to the point, but caring and understanding as well. She is a doctor who is going to figure out exactly what is troubling you and not just assume that you have the same common illness or recent problem that other patients have experienced. Thanks.
ONE OF THE BEST PHYSICIANS IN THE DC AREA!
She helped me!
As always, Dr. Malaisrie was thorough, patient, kind and gentle with my difficult toddler. She always provides excellent care! Highly recommend Dr. Malaisrie!
Dr. Malaisrie was very attentive and kind. She was efficient in completing the data entry and medical history review at the start of the appointment and then turned her full attention to me and took time to understand what was going on. She took care of my problem right away and made the appointment easy. I would highly recommend her! The reception and medical assistant staff were great as well--everyone was friendly and responsive.
I appreciate the care that Dr. Malaisrie and the woman who cleaned my ear before she came into the room took with me. They were very personal and very helpful. They both professed great bedside manners.
It was a very quick, simple, easy visit. Despite being 15 minutes late and being told that I may have to wait due to other patients being on time, I was seen within five minutes and was taken care of almost immediately. Very simple, and easy process. Dr. Malaisrie was also very nice and posed great bedside manner.
Very comfortable to talk to..
Very pleasant. In and out quickly. Explained everything.
Dr. Maiaisrie was wonderful with our 2 year old daughter. She answered all of our questions and made sure our daughter was comfortable. She performed the tube procedure and it has helped our daughter so much. We couldn't have chosen a better doctor!
Dr. Malaisrie was very professional. One of the nicest medical professionals I've ever encountered. I would recommend her.
Dr. Nora is awesome - She is thorough, attentive, personable and fully resolved the bloody nose issue I was having in a most knowledgeable and professional manner.
Dr M was pleasant and professional. Took time to listen and explain her conclusions. Will definitely return to her if needed.
Dr. Nora is an angel of a doctor.......Very professional and nice
She's the best. Quick, thorough, enlightening.
Great visit, she took her time and calmed down my worries. Much warmer than previous doctors!!
Did not answer question asked. Attitude not agreable.
The Doctor and the audiologist were professional and nice. I felt well taken care of. A test was ordered that required blood work. I was sent to LabCorp for the blood work. After personally going to the office to ensure that the bloodwork results would be sent to the Radiology Facility for the MRI, the results were not sent causing the Facility to call LabCorp after I arrived for the MRI.
Very warm, very friendly.
Best doctor I have seen in a long time. She was kind, listened very well, was able to pull up a recent MRI ordered by a different specialist, diagnosed well, and was all-around amazing. I was in extreme pain and even cried a couple times while there. She handled it all with compassion and kindness while maintaining her ability to keep on task. I couldn't say enough here to express my gratitude. I also had booked this appt just hours before and was a new patient. Today Dr. Malaisrie is my hero.
Nora Malaisrie is an excellent professional. I had a very satisfactory visit.
Absolutely love her no nonsense approach.
She didn't take a whole lot of time with me. Very efficient though.
Dr Malaysrie has been wonderful to my daughter (9y), both for regular visits and surgery we had to go though with her. I can only recommend her!
She was 40 minutes behind schedule. Asked child about various antibiotics she had in the past rather than parent which was a bit bizarre since she had no idea. Tried to anaesthetize nose prior to procedure unsuccessfully.
Friendly and informative
Visit went smoothly and efficiently. I have complete confidence id Dr. Malaisrie's abilities.
desk person never looked up, short arms you the forms. bad attitude. no greeting skills at all. this was the first time going here that everyone had an attitude.
An excellent doctor with a great bedside manner. Dr Malaisrie seems to be genuinely interested in your symptoms and concerns. Highly recommended.
I liked her. Professional office.
I was handled smoothly by three professionals invcluding Dr. Nora. It went very well and met all my expectations. Based on this first time, limited experience, I can highly recommend Dr. Nora and the Feldman staff.
Excellent. Very smart, caring doctor.
Dr. Malaisrie is the best ENT I have had. She is knowledgeable and always remembers past treatments without looking it up.
She took the time to carefully go over my symptoms, medications and overall, showed intelligence and caring.
She is thorough in her field. She is very confident. She was great with my 22 month old.
Today's visit was really great. As a new patient, I really like this place. Dr. Nora Malaisrie is very professional and nice. She listened and explained very carefully, willing to offer her great help. I love Dr. Malaisrie and her team. The nurses are very nice too. I will definitely come back again. and will recommend my friends this office.
The entire experience was excellent - starting with the front desk, then the tech, and finally the Dr. BRAVO. I don't say that often. I will be back as the need occurs.
It was great, they helped me to the best of their ability.
Wonderful experience and I was very pleased
Dr. Malaisrie listened to my concerns and was very informative during my consultation.
Dr. Malaisrie is great. She is very professional, thorough, friendly, caring and gentle, and informative.
Dr. Malaisrie was very professional and efficient. I felt confident she knew what she was doing.
She was very nice and she wanted to know what is causing me being sick. She was the best doctor that I ever seen and will tell people to go see her.
The last several ENTs I had been to were very disappointing. They knew their stuff, yes, but were not very attentive nor kind toward me. Malaisrie as well as her nurses listened to every word I said and were incredibly thorough. Not only that, but they were all very cheerful and made my visit a joy. As a result of the visit, my allergies and sinus problems have pretty much gone away. If ever I have problems again I will surely visit Malaisrie first!
Dr. Malaisirie is terrific. My 5 year old loves his appointments. I really appreciate the patience of exploring all treatment options vs rushing to an invasive medical procedure. The evening hour appointments are so convenient for working parents, too. I highly recommend Dr. Malaisirie and Feldman ENT. Thank you.
Dr. Malaisrie and all of the staff were polite, did not leave me waiting around, and were concerned about my issue. I highly recommend this office for prompt service and polite staff.
The visit was managed efficiently and effectively. The issues I was concerned with was addressed professionally. I am very plese I went to see Dr. Nor. Perfect!
Although it was a long wait time which I do expect, my experience there was great and all questions were answered.
Great doctor. Really listens. Explains very clearly.
She was very professional, pleasant, and practical during the visit.
She was fantastic with my 8yr old. Professional yet kind and engaging
Friendly and professional
Dr. Malaisrie seems very busy, We prefer to see her smiling face in the picture .
Dr. Malaisrie strikes me as a good Doctor and a great person. She was really interested in helping me. I'm glad that I had a chance to meet her. Thanks ZocDoc!
Very professional thorough and caring.
I had a very pleasant experience. The staff are all friendly and helpful and the care is compassionate. I highly recommend this practice.
Another great visit with Dr. Malaisrie!
Very kind and considerate, very attentive, and was concerned.
An excellent visit.
Very efficent and quick visit. Thank you
The doctor was very courteous and knowledgeable, and put me at ease immediately.
Dr. Malaisrie has been a gift from heaven, as far as I'm concerned. Her surgery on my nasal polyps was extensive (4 hours!), and the results have been outstanding. She is attentive, kind-hearted, informative, and truly expert. I have my health back thanks to her.
We LOVE Dr. Malaisrie! She is terrific with both of our kids and highly respect and value her opinion.
Doctor is great, Winnie the nurse is also terrific, but the wait time is crazy - an hour and fifteen minutes after arriving on time.
Very nice and knowledgeable, happy to answer questions. Great visit.
I was amazed at how quickly I was seen in this office especially being a new patient. I was back to work in no time. Great staff!
Dr Masrie was compassionate-gave me lots of time to discuss my medical issue. She was extremely thorough and thoughtful with determining my diagnosis and treatment options. The nurse was also very skilled and compassionate. If you have to see a doctor for any ENT issue I highly recommend Dr. Masrie.
Love Dr Malaisrie!!! Very thorough and patient - spends a lot of time with us! Highly recommend!
excellent. she was kind, gentle, reassuring and resolved my nasal problem during the visit.
Dr. Nora is kind and knowledgeable!
Professional, thorough, timely, and excellent manner with patients. Highly recommend Dr. Malaisrie.
She seemed competent and knowledgeable. I got the advice I needed.
Dr Malaisrie is fantastic! She spent a long time with us and was very thorough. She was excellent with my wild, crying, squirmy toddler. Highly recommend!
The staff and Doctor were great, outside of the 30 min. wait I would highly reccmmend.
Excellent service right from the reception staff. Doctor explained everything well and took the time to ensure I understood what the issue was (as well as any lay person could). Highly recommend the Doctor and this particular office.
Made no progress. Still sick and in pain.
I liked every person in this office who I had contact with, including the doctor's assistant and the audiologist. I felt I received excellent care and they took plenty of time to explain things and answer any questions.
She was very good. I would go back or refer others.
It was good overall
She listened and I didnt seemed rushed. She was very thorough in her exam.
Very efficient and made me feel very comfortable. Explained everything as she went along.
She is very nice and seems to know her stuff. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that I prefer doctors who push to be as thorough as possible in the little time they have and I feel she was much more relaxed than I am used to or comfortable with. I'm sure she's still doing the appropriate treatment but it is not as assuring as feeling my doctor has left no stone unturned.
Very attentive and thorough.
It was a very pleasant visit, whole staff was very curteous.
We arrived early and were brought back right away. Everyone we dealt with was courteous, professional, and very friendly. The patient was my 3 1/2 year old son, and everyone was so sweet and kind to him!
Good doctor, explained things well and took the time that was needed.
Took the time to answer questions and explain options. Very happy, second visit with her and she is now the family ENT.
I felt very comfortable and the front desk was very efficient.
Excellent doctor. Very professional, honest and knowledgable
Good visit. Got in right away and she was great.
Very nice to talk to!
Very pleased with visit and evaluation and followup
I thought it was a bit rushed and I did not get to ask her some questions that I really wanted to ask.
Her staff was highly professional and courteous and she was excellent. She steered me away from prescription medication and suggested a standard over-the-counter remedy that worked well. I am very satisfied.
She was very prompt, reassuring and professional, especially with my 12 year old daughter, who was nervous to be at the doctor's office.
just the way it should be
Dr. Malaisrie is a true professional. She was great in treating my condition and fully determining the cause of my dizziness, and advising me and helping me resolve it through her skill, knowledge and excellent medical diagnosis and full treatment.
She was professional and responsive
I appreciated the fact that she apologized for keeping me waiting. How often does that happen? For this alone I'd recommend her. I also think she is a good listener.
Very professional and effective.
She is an excellent doctor.
She was wonderful and very informed. Office staff were a great team.
Nora was pleasant, nice and down to earth!! highly recommended!
It was a good visit. The receptionist was not very friendly, but I liked Dr. Malaisrie and the other doctor and the assistance who helped me.
She is excellent.
Very good and thank you!
Great doc.. I really felt like she cared about my issue. Thanks!
This was my 2nd time seeing Dr. Malaisrie. She has a wonderful bedside manner, is informative, empathetic, professional and knowledgable. I highly recommend her.
Dt Malaisre may be very bright, maybe she should be doing research. Her diagnosis and treatment for this particular visit may be correct. We went over my last visit with her associate and she outwardly disagreed with him and offered medication, told me wouldn't find out the cause would be clinical diagnosis, and I must be able to pinpoint the exact location of the where I was feeling the cough was coming from.I wasn't there for my cough. If I was there for my cough and could identify this, why would I need her. This problem would of been solved 1 year ago. We're not even sure it's Ent related. Unlike the many Dr's in the practice I felt this Dr. had an allotted amount of time per patient. I'm sure she knows I will be going back to Dr. Jack Willams for my next visit or one of the other doctors in the practice. I'm not sure how long she has been in private practice, or with this practice, but this is has never been my experience with the Feldman Ent Dr's. My family has used this practice since I was a child. Dr. I Felman (rest in peace) he removed my tonsils. In time maybe she will get seasoned and become what we all know and love about the Felman ENT DR'S.
This office had availability online through zocdoc. I got a call telling me that online appointments were for new customers only. I had to rearrange my entire schedule. Im sure the doctor is great but her staffs organization of scheduling is very unorganized.
Excellent technically, pleasant and compassionate.
She was great! This was the 2nd time we saw her and she remembered the details. Great way with kids!
An excellent physician with a friendly, thoughtful manner. I am a big fan.
I felt rushed and she was not concerned at all about my questions or concerns. The front staff was friendly though but I found I way better ENT Doctor that cares.
Excellent. Very professional. Would highly recommend.
quite professsional and cordial.
Very good satisfactory
It was a good appointment. I don't have very good insurance and she is sensitive to my needs and issues.
Absolutely wonderful experience. She was very personable and friendly and was genuinely concerned about my issue. She was able to resolve my issue and took the time to explain in detail the resolution of it. I wish my PCP was like her!
Dr. Malaisrie is a poised, thoughtful, kind physician. Wish there were more like her. She did not hurry my appointment. She reviewed my situation, discussed treatment options, and prescribed an immediate course with a follow-up appointment. I am deeply grateful.
She listened to my problems. Did a thorough exam, set up a plan and follow up with me.
She gave careful consideration to my concerns and questions and gave very good conservative recommendations. Perfect.
Did not like questions and tried to avoid extensive questions about my medical conditions. The more questions that I asked she seemed to get very upset and defensive. I have never experienced such an awkward situation in a doctor's office. A definite never return to her offce...
She listened well and was very professional. I would see her again if the need arose.
This was my first time seeing Nora and I liked her a lot. She listened to my needs, was sympathetic and empathetic and had a very warm bedside manner. I would recommend her highly.
As always she is excellent, knowledgeable and caring.
Excellent. Very relational, knowledgeable and helpful. I highly recommend her.
Met four people and all four were professional and curteous.
It was fantastic and very helpful.
She listened to my questions and took the time to describe what she thought. I thought she was thorough. In addition, overall the office staff was also very good.
She is very helpful, professional, and thorough and has a compassionate and caring manner. She has saved me countless hours of pain and discomfort. Highly recommended to anyone who needs an ENT.
Very professional, helpful.
I think Dr. Malaisrie was wonderful. Flexible to take me as a new patient. Bedside manner was fantastic. She cared about me and was as careful as she could be. She has a wonderful personality and will continue to see her.
The visit was perfect.
I think she was great, professional and very friendly.
Very competent and compassionate.
Very professional and answered all my question.
Excellent fund of knowlegde. able to diagnose almost immediately. Cure available in office. Explained what to expect and what to call for so I was worry free.
The doctor had an incredibly kind, solicitous and patient bedside manner and listened to my needs and issues.
I found Dr. Malaisrie very professional, knowledgeable and caring. I would highly recommend her.
A very good practice. Every ENT in the practice is pleasant, professional, and efficient. A great Practice.
She knows her stuff, and was friendly and humorous during my visit. A role model for all health professionals.
Enjoyed the professional service, thoroughness of the examination snd friendly office environment.
Dr. Nora was professional, knowledgable and warm. It's everything you want in a doctor.
Dr. Malaisrie was understanding, listened attentively and was very caring. She was very patient with my questions and took the time to thoroughly explain the problem to me. The medical assistant was also very professional, courteous and thorough. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Malaisrie.
Excellent. Left with peace of mind.
The question is more what I think of the entire Feldman operation. I was primarily "seen" by someone named Emily, who never identified her position and who apparently has no formal training in medicine. She asked the major questions and cleaned my ear. I could've had a friend do that for a lot less money. Dr. Malaisrie was v. pleasant but spent not more than three minutes with me. My condition was not satisfactorily diagnosed and I am still experiencing discomfort in the area around my right ear. I don't necessarily blame the doctor for this - she appears to be under pressure to "get them through" as it's all about money. I will need to see another doctor elsewhere.
My problem isn't really with the Dr. but the office.
This was a very brief appointment, so much commentary is not possible. She seemed unaware that I am a physician, but many professionals don't look very closely at the patient paperwork and this wasn't important.
I thought that the Doctor was very friendly. This is very important for a new patient such as myself. I would told others about her based on my visit.
It was ok. It seem like I was wasting their time. I will not go back to this doctor. The staff wasn't very friendly and un-professional
She was wonderful! Better than my primary physician!
Loved the process of booking online! It works and I liked the doctor and the practice. I would recommend her she is very pleasant and nice.
Very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions concerning my sinus issues. Highly recommend this specialist.
Good.Would recommend my friends a visit for service.
Dr. Malaisrie was very approachable, knowledgable, and thorough. I appreciated her kindness and all the time she spent with me.
Very nice and thorough
She was lovely and seemed quite competent.
Great doctor's office - the staff was very friendly, reassuring, and helpful. Wait times were minimal. The doctor was very knowledgeable and confidence inspiring. I'll go back if I have another ear infection.
She was thoughtful and listened well to my needs. Eventhough there wasn't a clear course of action, she discussed my options with me. I was pleased with my visit.
Dr. Malaisrie was direct, clear, and professional, and she has excellent interpersonal skills.
Dr. Malaisrie was professional, competent and efficient. Her office staff, unfortunately, were behind on everything. I waited nearly 1/2 hr before being seen.
Dr. Malaisrie listens and explains things that a layman patient would understand. Thus, she was able to clarify my main concerns from the start; she is such a great specialist.
Great service; on time; enlightening
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Malaisrie.
She's quite professional,thorough, knows what she's doing and at the same time, very kind. I felt completely at ease, and she gave me worthwhile information concerning my health issue. I'd like to continue to see her as my primary doctor in the Feldman Group office. SEBarnes
