I've known Seth Oringher for many years, but never stop admiring how remarkable he is interpersonally and professionally. His skills and credentials are tops, but few can approach his personal enagagement. He listens carefully, learns whoyou are and what matters to you and comes up with a plan that makes you comfortable and well. If all doctors were like him, I might not mind getting sick.

The person who initially called me to (re)schedule the appointment was very unprofessional. (Rude manner, chewing gum during call) My actual appointment was not helpful. The doctor just said sorry you keep getting strep throat and come backin a year if this continues. If I see an ENT again, it will be a different doctor.

I told Dr. Oringher about my post-nasal drip and that I occasionally used Flo-mist. He pointed out that in order for it to be effective, it must be used daily. He was very polite in his demeanor. He also suctioned waxfrom my ears. Very efficient office. No wait. Strongly recommend.

ZocDoc apparently did not notify the Doctor about the appointment. We showed up 10 minutes early and the clinic did not have us listed. They fit us in because we are regular patients and we showed them the ZocDoc confirmation, but the wait was well over an hour.

I was a new patient to Dr. Oringher after being referred to him for several ear infections in the last 8 months. I had a 7:20am appointment, I loved that they had early appointments and I could go before work andnot be in too late. I had all of my new hire paperwork completed when I went in which I easily found on their website. I didn't wait more than 10 minutes in the lobby before being called back. His assistant was very nice and explained everything that was going to happen during the visit. I had an audiology test prior to seeing him right in the office and they did look in my sinuses which required two different nasal sprays and the assistant was once again very good as I told her I was slightly nervous about it. She explained everything and assured me I wouldn't feel much. Once she completed the nasal sprays, the doctor came in within about 2 minutes. We discussed what had brought me in, my history and the issues I've been experiencing. The recommendation that sent me to Dr. Oringher was the removal of my tonsils and adenoids. I wanted to know about doing tubes in my ears as well. He was very thorough, gentle when doing the procedure with my sinuses, explained what he thought and why. He was very nice and while he does not perform the procedure I need to have done, he gave me the name of his colleague who does do the procedure. I could not have asked for a better ENT and I've had a lot of issues since I was a small child with my ears, nose and throat and he ranks up there as one of the top 2 ENT's I've seen. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an ENT.

It was pretty short, as these visits tend to be, maybe due to being on Medicare. A bit inconclusive. Also, I needed to get the doctor's notes from the visit, which I'm not sure I can obtain through the website he uses.
