Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Jacobowitz was excellent. He is precise and puts one at ease. Compassionate and exacting.
I saw Dr. Jacobowitz for a lingering muffled hearing and buzzing in ear following an infection. My first impression was how friendly and professional the front desk and medical assistance were. Dr. Jacobowitz was friendly, efficient, knowledgeable and unrushed. He thoroughly explained his observations and recommendations, and patiently waited to escort me back to the front desk to get the visit report. I highly recommend Dr. Jacobowitz.
Dr. Jacobowitz is an excellent physician, and his staff is also very friendly. Also, the facility is very organized, clean, spacious, and equipped with great technology and equipment. I strongly recommend this clinic for ENT matters.
Dr. Jacobowitz was very knowledgeable regarding sleep issues such as sleep apnea and upper airway resistance syndrome. He took the time to look at all aspects of my symptoms and issues and looked at them from a holistic perspective. In addition, the rest of the staff in the office were very friendly as well. I would definitely recommend.
Excellent! Thorough and friendly!
- Incredibly intelligent and thoughtful doctor. - Showed tremendous respect by carefully explaining all of the details of the readouts, my options, etc. - Was mentoring a very bright student during our session and showed a great care for imparting his knowledge to others. Highly recommended.
Great visit. Comprehensive discussion about topic. Unfortunately, they didn't have all the paperwork I filled out on Zocdoc for the appointment. Not sure why.

Absolutely wonderful experience from beginning to end. Every team member was friendly, and knowledgable and Dr. Jacobowitz was an absolute delight to speak to. Highly recommended!
He was great, quick, thorough, had lots of suggestions, answered questions, explained everything he was doing, I had a highly positive experience. It did feel a little rushed at the very end, but that was a tiny detail. I don't like giving reviews based on one initial visit, but for what it is, the visit was great.
Great staff. Great doctor who takes the time to explain everything.
Dr. Jacobowitz's service was fantastic. He was patient and offered practical advice. I will definitely return.
Great specialist! I had a great experience so far. A+
Dr. Ofer Jacobowitz was great, but his office staff is a mess. After our appointment, Dr. Ofer Jacobowitz ordered a sleep test for me. I did not hear back from his office for several weeks, and finally right before my follow-up appointment, I gave them a call. It turned out that they never sent the sleep study request through, but no one bothered to follow up with me. Over the last two months, I have tried calling over 10 times to follow up on the status of my sleep test, and every time there is a different reason for why the test has not been ordered yet, or I have been asked to call back later because the person that I am working with is busy. Today the reason they haven't ordered the test yet is that they just hired a new medical assistant and she was supposed to do it but forgot. Truly an awful experience!
I cannot say enough good things about this establishment. From the second I walked in to the second I walked out. Rose at the Reception Desk greeted me so nice and warm. The office was clean and comfortable. The nurse (I wish I got her name) was incredibly wonderful and pleasant to talk with about my symptoms. And finally, Dr. Jacobowitz was so amazingly professional and made me feel 110% comfortable. Dr. Jacobowitz talked through the procedure and empathized at times it was going to feel uncomfortable or pain. I was completely blown away at the hospitality of this office, I literally started recommending this place the minute I walked outside.
Dr. Jacobowitz was professional and conscientious. I felt that my concerns were acknowledged in great detail. His staff was also efficient and courteous, and the office and facilities are well kept. I would go to Dr. Jacobowitz again.
He was great and very personable. Dr. Jacobowitz is very willing to work with his patients on what treatment plans work best for them and their lifestyle.
Great doctor, knowledgeable and helpful with advice.
Jocobowitz is a kind man, very patient and understanding. He's always a pleasure to visit and he pays attention to his patients.
The office staff was extremely friendly and the office was clean. I only had to wait approx. 5 minutes before I was seen by the doctor. I was very nervous during my consultation but Doctor Jacobowitz was extremely kind and walked me through every step of the process. He made me feel comfortable and more at ease. Overall a great experience.

Had to wait 30 minutes after checking in
Excellent doctor for sleep apnea!
Very gentle and soft spoken with amicable nature.
Dr. Ofer Jacobwitz was very pleasant and thorough. However, during routine ear cleaning Dr. Jacobwitz scratched my eardrum and my ear filled with blood causing severe ear pain and an ear infection. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this MD.
I was glad to know that Dr OJ took time to explain about the issue and seemed very knowledgeable and his advice has worked well for me!

He's a very nice, gentile, sincere, patient, and adorable doctor who is helping me conquer my allergies and sleep apnea. He's very knowledgeable and has given many different options and solutions. I would highly recommend him to people who are having issues with their ENT.
The doctor was polite but did not help me.
Everything was great. Reception, clinical staff. Only problem was they had no record of my appt through zocdoc, even though zocdoc sent me both text and email confirmation/reminders
Great doctor, very knowledgeable and took the time to explain my diagnosis thoroughly. Would recommend
On the whole, pleased with Dr. Jacobowitz. I gave 4 star ratings since I have only seen him once so it is a limited experience, but I would go back!
Really listens, has taken care of my sinus problem; very thorough. Staff is great!
It was awful. Before I went in the staff were fighting. Then he didn't listen to me at all and gave me the same talk you could tell that he gives all his patients. And I could see he wanted to sign me up for all of these expensive procedures. I went to another doc, she gave me one medication for my allergies and now I'm fine. This place is a factory trying to make money. Run!!
Dr Jacobowitz is very gentle and thorough in his examination. He communicates very clearly and provides advice and feedback right away. Look forward to seeing him again at the followup.
Dr Jacobowitz was very helpful in answering my questions, had a very comfortable and friendly bedside manner and took the time to address all of my symptoms and offer both immediate relief as well as prescribed relief within my budget. Highly recommend.
Very professional and nice. Office was clean and very nice compared to some others in NYC.
He was very patient, took the time to listen and answer all my questions. I did not feel rushed at all. However, this is a very large busy office wit lots of Dr's. Know what you are there for, or you may find yourself railroaded into a number of unnecessary and costly tests. This did not happen to me, but I did overhear some other patients complaining.
Great office, extremely thorough.
Explained everything along the way. Very thorough
Very good, very professional, covered all bases.
Dr. Jacobowitz was very kind, funny, spent lots of time with me, and was very gentle when he had to put a tiny light up my nose to see my throat -- much less discomfort than when another doctor did it previously. Highly recommended.
I was very pleased with my appointment with dr jacobowirz. He was very caring, knowledgable, and helpful. And the office itself was clean and very professional.
It was great. I didn't have to wait long. Dr. Jacobowitz is knowledgeable and really nice.
Dr. Jacobowitz was great. He had great bedside manner, was very friendly, and explained the procedure thoroughly. Highly recommended.
Office was clean and professional. Was seen pretty quick, dr had great bedside manner, listened to all of my story and symptoms and was very gentle. Would def return.
Everything about this experience was excellent! The receptionist even had this scent about her that was just so pleasant! Dr. Jacobowitz was so nice and explained everything. Something he performed didn't feel all that pleasant for me, but he was so kind and caring that I knew I was in very good hands despite any discomfort. I will say one point of advice - go to their website for directions. If you google 261 5th Ave., it tells you they're on 23rd St., but they're really btwn. 28th and 29th like their website says.
