The whole experience was bad from the beginning. After booking my appointment through ZD, I received a call from the doc's office saying that time slot wasn't available. When I mentioned the website says it does, the receptionist was irritatedand told me something about the website not being in real time and that it doesn't sync properly when she books the slots on her end. I told her if I couldn't have that time slot, I'll have to go somewhere else since its a semi-emergency. She called me back after an hour saying she can take me at that time but asked me to fill out the forms ahead of time. I told her I already did that on the ZD website, and she said she hasn't received them. After all the back and forth and waiting forever, when I finally did see the doctor, he was very curt, dismissive and condescending. He seemed annoyed when I wanted to know more about my condition and my options and dismissed me right away when I said I might have to think about it as what he was proposing was quite invasive. Not going back here again.

I have had sinus issues for years. I have been trying to find a way to get the problem fixed by medication. I went to Dr. Nass since he is close to my home. What a great find! I got solucky. He treated me well, his staff is super friendly, he is punctual (how many dr. offices you can say that about)!!!. He corrected my deviated septum. Surgery was in May 2015 at NYU Langone - great staff there too. After care was easy (which I didn't believe him at first). I hardly had any pain, took no pain meds, and with Neil Med treatment I am breathing so much better. I trust Dr. Nass and highly recommend him. He is a honest and genuinely nice person. He answers all your questions, and definitely has this down. Thank you Dr. Nass!!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Nass for 30 years. During my recent visit, Dr. Nass immediately diagnosed a problem, which two other physicians were unable to diagnose, and reassured me that the problem was not something far more serious,as I had suspected. I have never presented Dr. Nass with an ENT problem, which he was unable to diagnose and effectively treat. He is extremely competent, yet is aware of his limitations, and refers patients to other physicians when indicated. He is extremely considerate, caring, and easy to relate to. I would recommend him without any hesitation.
