Dr Colen is an amazing doctor how ever there is always a wait for her. I feel as if they try to squeeze in as many appointments as they can. I don’t think I have ever been seen on time evenwhen I arrive 30mins early hoping that would help.

The Dr was great. Check in was easy but the wait time after the hearing test was ridiculous I was in the office longer then 2 hours and there wasn't very many pts in there to be seen and unfortunately I have at least two more appointments to go

The staff member who moved me between a series of rooms was unusually rigid and kept telling me what I was "going to do..." which was bizarre - but the doctor was methodical and clear in her explanations and helpful in laying out options for me.

Dr Colen is amazing! She really cares and listens and tries to get to the root of the issue. I’ve been seeing her for years. But since is one of the best ear doctors she always has a wait time. Evenif you arrive early there is always a wait to see her. But I feel that it is worth it.

This was my first time going to an ENT specialist and it was a great experience. I made my appointment through ZocDoc and they were very prompt and made sure I had all the info before coming to my appointment. Thewait time wasn’t that bad for me. It took maybe over half an hour, but I was a new patient so I had to register and that took time. Dr.Colen was excellent taking care of me, answers all my questions and concerns, and fixed my ear issue. She did a great job taking care of me and if I ever have an issue again, hopefully not, I’ll definitely be coming back.

She asked me all the possible details to make sure she understood the case thoroughly. I had a suspicion that i had a broken nose but she examined me and informed me that it wasn’t a broken nose and i gotrelieved. She recommended me to a nasal injury specialist if I was still running into issues after 6 weeks.

The office space looked nice and it’s conveniently nearby the trains. I thought Dr. Colen was great, though her MA didn’t seem to care much about her job... but I’d definitely come back for the doctor. She had great bedside mannerand did a quick overall check of my nose/throat even though my ear was the main concern.

Dr. Colen was warm, and professional, and listened distinctly. She was thorough, to the point of also establishing a baseline hearing test to get to the bottom of something from when I was a child, to rule it out. Hands down,one of the most reassuring doctor visits I’ve had in years. Only deducting points because even with an appointment, I was waiting or moved through PA techs and waiting for nearly an hour.
