Waited two hours before I saw a doctor
Dr. Colen was very professional from the very start and made sure that my concerns were heard and taken care of.
Doctor Colen us one of the best NY ENT doctor
Doctor Colon was awesome. Figured out my sinus issue within minutes, was very detailed, answered all my questions and heard all my concerns with patience. I highly recommend Dr. Colen!
Dr Colen is a great Doctor. I am so impressed by how she conducts her business and understands and diagnoses the problems. I feel lucky that I was able to find her within the practice. She is a true professional and you can see it in the way she carries herself and how she cares about her profession. We need more Doctors like her in the world! It is such a pleasure to be treated by her that I go out of my way to find out what office she is working out of and make sure that I go see her. I can see whatever doctor I choose and would always choose her. Thank you Dr Colen!
Very professional and curtiuos . Her explanation of what I had was thorough and understandable.
Treated right away and she also has a very laid back personality.
She's professional, listed intently and seemed wise in her medical knowledge. I really appreciate her expertise and listening to my needs and desires for care.
Dr. Cohen was lovely, personable, insightful and just very good. I will happily return to her again.
The place is a disaster, typical understaffed mismanagement. Dr. came in thought I had other symptoms, spent next to no time, diagnosed without sufficient questions, and prescribed meds that did not help. Not going here again.
She was very pleasant and professional
Dr. Colen was very patient, very friendly and very informative. I don't expect doctors to listen at this point, but she clearly did.
As usual she's the best
The initial check in on the clinic electronic pad was a little long. But I was called in immediately afterwards.
The doctor was great and straight to the point. The office, however, is a bit diosrganized. ZocDoc online registration is not going through, staff was not very attentive to patient and the wait time after the vitals were taken - was about an hour. This left an unpleasant aftertaste after the visit.
We were the last patients to be seen, when we arrived the office was empty. They immediately took our info and called us in. The visit lasted about 20 mins and all of the staff were great. Very satisfied
My wife and I have been using dr colon for 6 years and we both are so happy we found her Plain and simple she a great doctor and person
Great, friendly, easy to take to very caring and very helpful
Great physician, knowledgeable, confident, caring and allows time for the patient to ask questions and discuss concerns. You never feel rushed.
Dr. Colen is excellent - thoughtful and caring. She does run late.
Dr Colen was amazing!
The staff and Dr colen was excellent she explain everything and the wait was not long
Very professional staff. Dr was very informative, I highly recommend this office very clean and patient oriented.
No complaints about Doctor Colen. The team at the front desk on the other hand needs a refresher on customer service. It was my first visit, and I was handed a tablet with the wrong name to fill out new paper work. I know people make mistakes BUT I had just finished telling them my name & SHOWING ID a couple of times. I think they need to pay closer attention when a patient is speaking instead of multi tasking.
The ladies at the reception were very nice and helpful. Dr. Colen was very patient in listening and explaining things, she was honest with her suggestions and recommendations about what could be my next step, I never felt like she was in a hurry or trying to get rid of me.
She was great nice clean place and friendly staff A+
Visit was great! All questions were answered and concerns handled in a professional manner.
The office staff was very nice. Courteous and professional, however there was quite a long wait time.

Very friendly and professional
Very Professional! Quiet and clean place, filing medial forms via tablet, short waiting time.
It was a clean and polite office staff and the doctor as well.
Dr. Colen was absolutely wonderful. She is warm and caring and diagnosis perfectly. She understands her field as well as anyone I have seen. I traveled all the way to Brooklyn just to her because I trust her that much.
I felt rushed to tell the nursing assistant all of my history and why I was there for the visit. I watched three-four people be seen before me and all of them had arrived after me. Ok, so maybe they had appointments earlier than me, but my appointment was for 11:40, I arrived at 11:10 and didn't get taken back to see the Doctor until 12:47. That's awhile regardless. The Doctor was helpful, patient and seriously listened to my history and the issues that I was currently having. She seems to value my opinion about my condition and offered suggestions and advice. She was very helpful.
She was very caring and nice. She gave me great advice and was a sweet heart. I would go back to her again in a second.
She was very polite, answered all my questions and made me feel really comfortable.
A pleasure to deal with.
Dr. Colen was very professional and friendly. She explained everything and answered all my questions.
A kind, caring doctor who listens and is respectful.
She is very pleasant and thorough. Very friendly I would highly recommend her.
Dr. Tahl Colen was very kind and understanding, and she took the time to explain what she was doing and why with my 3 year old. She answered any questions I had, and that helped put me at ease.
Dr. Colen was professional and had a great bedside manner. She listened to and addressed all my health concerns. Dr. Colen identified a minor health issue I wasn't aware of and took care of it before it became something major. I will definitely see her again if necessary.
Great wonderful answered all my question
Amazing doctor. Professional, friendly and efficient.

Felt comfortable with her enough to let her start a procedure on me that day.
First visit with Dr. Coleman. She has excellent bedside manners and took her time reviewing my past records and Drs visits. Examination was thorough and she provided me with follow up recommendations.
excellent doctor, I recommend for any ENT issues, very sweet
The staff and Dr Colen were very nice and professional.
Dr. Colen was excellent and so was the staff.
I went in reading the reviews- the wait time is spot on- but no more than I have waited for my primary care. Still be prepared for the entire visit to take up to an hour. However dr. Colen is amazing- she answered all my questions and really gave me her full attention and explained my issues throughly. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. The location of the office is a bit of a pain for anyone driving from long island though
The visit was great, the staff as well as the atmosphere was really welcoming.

She was very receptive to my ailments and explained what tests were to come
I believe she was thorough, and asked the right questions to garner accurate responses.
Honestly, the wait time was the only reason I was very upset today. Otherwise Dr Colen was great.
Worth the wait! She was amazing!
She was very informative and helpful. She printed out all information about my issue and set up an appointment for a follow up right away.
Friendly. Personable. Only issue was wait time over 30 minutes. Would at least have appreciated a "sorry I'm running late." But besides that all was excellent.
she was great! really listened to my issues and gave great advice.
Dr. Cohen was very warm with an excellent bedside manner and thorough explanation. She answered all my questions and addressed every concern I had. The office staff was ready for my appointment and my wait time was about 5 mins from the time I arrived.
Very friendly and approachable - only saw for an initial consult so can't speak to more in-depth treatment, but overall very positive experience and would definitely recommend Dr. Colen to others.
Dr Cohen was amiable and thorough. She didn't make me feel rushed and took time explaining things to me.

Dr. Colen is terrific. She is cordial, professional, and caring. I was seen promptly at the time my appointment was scheduled. She kept me informed about what she was doing as she treated me.

My visit was very good. I was well informed and the doctor's attitude was excellent.
Dr. Colen was friendly and professional. Highly recommended!
I understand we all have our specialization in the world, but I am a person who likes to be talked too and walked through my symptoms so that I may better understand them in the future. Medication and a random appointment later shouldn't leave me saying 'So what was the problem?'.
My visit with Dr Colen was very informative. I was late for my appointment & the staff was very understanding and remained professional. Dr Colen explained to me in detail what was going to take place, as well as, the findings afterwards. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking similar services.
Responsive, efficient, attentive, thorough, instructive, non-judgmental
The good doctor was nice, caring and to the point. She found the problem and resolved it there in the office. There was no waste. I highly recommend her. She is my new ENT doc.

I just love her.

Thought I would have problems with Parking because of the location. That was no problem, because you can park across the street. Best medical appointment I had in a long time.

The wait was a little too long for an appointment for a 1 year old.
Its was good
Everyone in the office was great from the receptionist to the young lady who helped me before I met with Dr. Colen and Dr. Colen was fantastic. She listened to me and explained everything about my condition and how we would proceed slowly and clearly.
it was awesome
I had a really great experience seeing Dr. Colen! She made my daughter feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the experience! Her feedback about my daughter's health was very calm, clear, and easy to understand. We have to see Dr. Colen again in a couple of months and I feel confident that it will be a great experience again.
I have been looking for a great ENT since I moved back to NY a few years ago. Dr. Colen was very professional and excellent bed side manners. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an ENT.

Apart from the long wait (70 minutes) I had a great experience with Tahl Colen - I would definitely recommend her!
Great bedside manner, talented doctor. I'd recommend Dr. Colen to anyone seeking an ENT.
She was kind and gentle to my son and she listened to my concerns. I was very pleased with the office staff as well.
Amazing. I found my ENT specialist.
She is great
Dr. Colen was very gracious and informative, she took her time to explain the procedures and made sure I was comfortable every step of the way. Highly recommended!
I found her to be very caring. She listened to my illness issues. She was veryunderstanding, and explained exactly what the different problems/solutions could be. My total visit from entering the office, visit with Dr. Colen, to leaving was less than 40 min. I appreciate the professionalism and care of both Dr. Colen and the ENT Allergy group. I will continue to use this practice & Dr. Colen.
She's is very down to earth and non-judgmental and competent. Wait time was the only problem.
Super smart, super nice. Cleared my wax issue quickly and got me in for a hearing test immediately to boot. The one issue (as seen in the rating above) was the wait time—just under an hour from waiting room to exam room. That could be quickened for sure.
Dr. Colen was friendly and kind, and understood that the inflammation in my throat was a singing emergency (I needed to perform in 48 hours). She listened carefully and prescribed me a course of steroids. I have found an ENT I feel comfortable going to next time this happens!
Excellent doctor terrible wait time
Knowledgeable, thorough and pleasant.
Our visit with Dr. Colen was excellent. She took the time to explain the situation, and then took the time to correct it which turned out to be a rather long office visit. Well done Dr. Colen. Our experience with the pre-visit office paperwork and staff was something else, however. Perhaps our case was more difficult and unusual than most other patients since my daughter (it was her visit) is insured through my ex-wife's insurance policy. I didn't have my ex-wife's soc. sec # but had all of the other required information and my ex-wife was unreachable at the time. I did have the copay information, the policy number and my own info. I also was quite willing to sign for the visit personally. Nevertheless, the staff was so overworked that they barely had time to speak to me and didn't realize that I wasn't the patient until all the paperwork had been filled out and we had already been there over an hour. I didn't know until we were called whether or not we would be taken or turned away. The staff referred to us as "The Zoc Doc" as in "The doctor is in with a patient now and still has 'the Zoc Doc' to see." I don't know what that means.
Dr Colen was nice, really knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I feel better already. I wish I had gone sooner.
I am very pleased with Dr. Colen and everyone at the office. ZocDoc, thanks!
She's the best
No follow up, not very thorough
Very friendly and knowledgeable. Much thanks to her friendly staff for making me feel comfortable. I highly recommend her practice.
She is a great doctor and a great person I am so glad she is our doctor for my wife and I
She is a wonderful doctor and I would highly recommend
Very nice staff
she was great with my 12 yr old son very courtesy and professional and explained everything. She also took the time to answer any questions we had. The office staff was very pleasant as well.
A+ She was very friendly and was great with my son.
She answered all my questions, and explained everything.
Dr. Colen was very caring. My problem was not clear cut, but she approached the issue from many angles, and I have hope that she will find a cure.
I can hear again. I can hear again.
Very good experience. Highly recommend.
Very professional! Solved my problem in one visit.
Wonderful doctor. Patient and caring and thorough and professional in all regards.
Dr. Colen is attentive, friendly, and happy to answer questions. She took time to explain things to me and had a caring attitude. A different doctor gave me a hearing test prior to my exam, and he was also excellent.
It went well, she was very informative & easy to talk to.
She is an excellent doctor; caring and extremely competent. I have great confidence in her and her problem solving capability.
Dr. Colen was excellent. Made me feel a lot better. Explained everything and would recommend. the only downside is the wait time. I had a 9am appt, went at 8:50 to fill out papers and wasnt seen until 9:20. But i will still go back
Thorough and clear.
Good satisfied visit
Great doctor. Explained everything clearly. Answered all my questions. Didn't feel rushed at all. Really friendly and pleasant.
Dr. Colen was fantastic very thorough and explained her thought process and reasoning gave me plenty of time to ask questions as well.... would highly recommend. On another note the office staff in NJ where I went is incredibly kind and accommodating wish all offices where like this!
She was kind, professional, and let me know what she thought about my condition, prognosis, and course of treatment right away. I would definitely recommend her.
Dr. Colen is fabulous. She was thorough, friendly and very knowledgeable. I am so happy I made this appt right away using zocdoc because the treatment for my diagnosed condition is time-sensitive
she answered all my questions and really helped me with my issues
This rating is long overdue, but I have been to both of Dr. Colen's office locations. I found that she was very professional and accommodating when I went to her due to my hearing loss.
She was very thorough! Asked lots of questions and answered all of mine. Only minor complaint was the wait time to see her, but it was an emergency appointment.
I have seen this doctor three times: twice at her Gramercy location and the other in her Brooklyn location. My Gramercy visits went well. Little to no wait time with pleasant office staff. Her medical assistant works with her at both locations. She is pleasant as well and very professional. Dr. Colen has a very nice bedside manner and took her time taking my history and looking into the issues at hand. She seemed to perform all of the necessary tests, but she did fail to take a scope down my nose (which I found odd given my symptoms). Still...she got to the root of the problem which is Eustachian Tube Dysfunction exacerbated by my chronic sinus issues. She prescribed me some new meds (which unfortunately do not seem to help me much - which is not her fault). The Brooklyn visit was a pain! I had to wait about 70 minutes to be seen. UGH! This was a follow-up appointment so it was pretty quick, but overall I think she is a very knowledgeable physician with a great attitude and I would definitely recommend her, though not the Brooklyn office. The receptionist in the Brooklyn office gave me a $5 Starbucks gift card for making my appointment online through ZocDoc (or so she says). It might have been a way to ease my frustration from having to wait 70 MINUTES to be seen.
Great doctor very knowledgeable
Dr. Colen was very nice and helpful. She diagnosed the issue and provided me with a working solution.
She was great! Gave me good information on my symptoms
Dr. Colen is extremely knowledgable in her field and is wonderful with children. Her bedside manner is very impressive and will definitely recommend her and this office! Friendly and very helpful staff. I booked appointments for my son and I for the next day. Once we arrived in the office, I filled out some paper work and was seen right away.
i was very impressed by the doctor. i felt relieved after the visit that the situation was being properly treated. she also made herself accessible should i need further help.
She was thorough and very professional. Explained all the treatments and options. Terrific for a patient looking for answers.
She was very professional. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Cohen. She has a very good bed side manner.
I thought she was very patient, efficient, and made sure I understood every step of the consultation process.
Perfect choice for any patient
Dr Colen was extremely thorough in her examination and took great care to explain her diagnosis. No question, she is a great doctor.
Very kind and caring. Answered all my questions in depth and eased any concerns i had.
She is so professional
