I do not doubt that this doctor is good at what he does, but the arrogant responses to my questions and own personal knowledge of my body were highly unnecessary. I went for a deviated septum, to which I knew Ihad but I don't recall if I was ever diagnosed or not as I went as a child and my mother told me that's what the doctor had said. His response, "well, how would you know that? You wouldn't know that." Um? What? Needless to say, I never went back again. His experience is reputable, but I don't trust anyone who does not take their time and treat me with respect.

You can tell that Dr. Genack knows what he is talking about. He is a true expert in his field and was able to accurately diagnose and recommend treatment options for my issue within minutes of walking into the exam room.He can sometimes come off as tough, but you can tell that it is because of his commitment to providing care of superlative quality, even if his recommendations are hard to hear. His staff acts with professionalism and integrity, and even recognized and remembered me when I came in for my follow-up visit. Would definitely recommend to anyone needing an ENT!

At first I was excited to see Dr. Genack based on reviews. But when I was asked to get to the office at 3 for my 3:30 appointment (they called me to reschedule) to fill out paperwork, I got a badfeeling. I was done by 3:10 with the paperwork and didn't get to see the doctor until 3:50. He supposedly was on an emergency phone call, but yet I could hear the whole conversation since his door was open and it was definitely a personal call. At 3:45 I mentioned to the office assistant that I wanted to leave in the next 5 minutes if he didn't come to see me, and miraculously, he came in within 2 minutes. He was super unfriendly (probably because I had made a complaint) and really spoke to me like I had no idea what I was talking about as a patient with symptoms AND acted like I was lying about my symptoms. Really rude.

The condescending manner at which he addressed me was appalling. He expected me to know exactly what my diagnosis was and even jumped to a conclusion before examining. He barely let me finish a sentence before interrupting and telling me thatI was completely wrong. If I want to go to a doctor to get a diagnosis, I expect compassion and patience as I explain why I scheduled a visit. He treated me like I wasted his time and provided no alternative remedy. Do him a favor, and don't schedule a visit. It would be a waste of his time.
