Great office, great staff; and Dr Lessow is professional and extremely attentive

Dr. Lessow is amazing - friendly, warm and meticulous. I had my surgery over a month ago and getting great results. She has a thorough approach and takes a long time getting to know you, explaining the entire surgical and aftercare process. She operates with precision and her staff is lovely and there with you all the way. You will not find a better Otolaryngologist than Dr. Lessow. Highly recommend.

Great and warm experience.

I had a very pleasant experience overall. Dr. Lessow and her staff were very knowledgeable and attentive. I have visited two doctors prior to my appointment with Dr. Lessow, and she is the first one who was able to identify the cause of my issue and outline a promising treatment plan. After careful analysis and evaluations, Dr. Lessow recommended a corrective surgery, which she performed beautifully and with splendid results. I can breathe again (!) and am so grateful to Dr. Lessow and her amazing team for their help.

Dr. Lessow is fantastic and a great doctor. She is very detailed and thorough. She takes the time to explain everything, from diagnosis up to the procedure. In addition, she has a great bed side manner. My son (who also is a patient) and I were confident that Dr. Lessow would improve our medical issues and most importantly our quality of life, and she definitely did! We were very comfortable with her since our first appointment. She also has a great staff!

Dr Lessow is great, she understands the issues so well that you are experiencing and has a lot of empathy for things like ear pain and a sore throats as examples. She walks you through what you need to do and what to expect, I have been a patient for years and will continue to highly recommend her to family and friends with highest confidence.

Dr. Lessow removed my tonsils and adenoids and opened up my nasal cavity. The operation was a great success. I dod not feel very much pain during the first week because I was given an effective combination of anti-flammatories and pain killers. It's ten weeks since the operation and the surgery healed beautifully. I highly recommend Dr. Lessow.

The staff and the doctor Alexa was amazing. Very caring and made sure that I understood the information they were telling me. I highly recommend this place to anyone.

I have been dealing with dizzyness for two months. I had one doctor misdiagnose me a vitamin deficiency. My primary doctor blamed elevated blood pressure (140/85) and put me on meds. still, the dizzyness lingered. After reading about others with similar symptoms, I decided to visit Dr Lessow. Dr Lessow quickly set me up for an ear and head MRI to rule out any serious conditions. She called me promptly to tell me the MRI was clean. she then diagnosed me with an inner ear imbalance, and explained the condition. She was thorough. She was personable, patient, and I came away very impressed with her. and most importantly, one week after starting her physical therapy exercises, I'm finally feeling great. I only wish I had seen her two months ago, instead of suffering all summer. I will always recommend her when someone mentions to me that they need to see an ENT.

From my first appointment to my post op appointments, Dr. Lessow was incredible. She thoroughly examined my throat in my initial visit and was extremely patient and helpful in answering my many questions/concerns. However, it wasn't just the great job she did removing my tonsils but the care she showed me as one of her patients. She thoroughly explained everything to expect for surgery, showed up early on the surgery date to make sure everything was ok and to explain the process and address any last minute questions. She even called the night after my surgery to make sure I was ok. She truly went above and beyond in her patient care and it was much appreciated. She was thorough, attentive, patient and showed an unprecedented level of care. I'm extremely happy she's my ENT.

I've been seeing Dr. Lessow for a couple of months now with reference to a persistent cough. Contrary to doctors who give up on finding the root cause of an issue when it's hard to pinpoint, Dr. Lessow has gone above and beyond to help me. Dr. Lessow's bedside manner, extensive knowledge and wonderful staff have made dealing with this issue more bearable. I would recommend her to anyone seeking an awesome ENT.

Professional and reliable!

I was lucky enough to meet Dr. Lessow and her team this year. I was experiencing chronic sinus headaches and after a thorough examination, and multiple tests, Dr. Lessow and I agreed that sinus surgery was the best option. I felt safe and most importantly, I knew this was my decision. Dr. Lessow's bedside manner is impeccable and there wasn't a second that I didn't believe that my health and comfort were her number ONE priority.

Dr. A Lessow is very nice and i trust her completely. She was the first one that realy understood my complaints and she did a great job with my nose problems. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Her practice and the people working there are personal, friendly, clean and they are very proffessional.

Dr Lessow is the best doctor I have ever seen. Her staff is also fantastic. When providing an assessment, she listens, takes detailed notes, and gives options and recommendations. After having surgery, she followed up multiple times to ensure things were going smoothly. I've already recommended her to all of my friends.

Dr Lessow helped cure my years of chronic sinus issues. Her bedside manner is the best out of any doctor I have visited and her office staff is kind and responsive. I chose to undergo sinus surgery with Dr Lessow to get a permanent fix for my issues and couldn't be more pleased. Having never gone through surgery, I was nervous and she took time to explain every detail to me and ensure everything was taken care of in advance. Cannot recommend Dr Lessow and her office enough. It has been a wonderful experience.

Dr Lessow is the most patient, caring and informative doctor that I have ever had. She performed my sinus surgery over a year ago and it was the best decision that I could have made. My sinus infections have almost completely disappeared and my breathing and energy is the best it has been in years. Another great attribute of Dr Lessow is if you have a 3:00 appointment, you actually get seen at 3:00 and don't sit in a waiting room for an hour. In my experience with doctor visits in the past, this is not normally the case. It is refreshing to have a doctor that is aware of their patients time. I would highly recommend Dr Lessow. Her follow up after the surgery along with her consideration for her patients is second to none. Anyone who is experiencing sinus pain, infections, allergies, etc... should contact her as soon as you can. It will absolutely help you.

Dr Lessow is so nice and so helpful. This trickles down to the office staff as well. This was a great experience and would not go anywhere else.

Dr Lessow is a wonderful doctor. I recently had an operation for a deviated septum with her and I would recommend her highly to anyone needing any assistance with their ears, nose or throat. She has a calming, professional demeanor and explains medical information clearly and kindly. 5/5

Dr. Lessow was has a wonderful bedside manner. I came to her with many symptoms and she was able to make a decisive plan of care. My recovery from nasal and sinus surgery was essentially painless with very little down time. The routine follow up was very gentle and she continued revising my plan of care to make routines easier for me. She made this process easy and I will continue with her for routine ENT care and follow up.

I was referred by my primary to Dr. Lessow after suffering from constant throat infections. I went in and was telling her I felt like I get more air through one nostril than the other half joking. After her exam it became clear that I had a deviated septum which was all news to me. Dr. Lessow explained the situation and my options. So after further testing and the results of a recommended a sleep study we also learned that I was suffering from sleep apnea. We decided as ... The staff is amazingly friendly, helpful and make visiting the office such a pleasure. I can't recommend Dr. Lessow enough. She just totally rocks!!! See More a team that I would get the corrective surgery needed to correct the deviated septum. I was so blessed to be connected with such a caring and knowledgable doctor. After having the surgery my breathing, sleeping and overall health has improved. My blood pressure is down!!! I've lost a lil bit of weight and just feel so much better.

Every experience I've had with Dr. Lessow's office, from a basic checkup to my sinus surgery, was excellent. Dr. Lessow is kind, sensitive, patient and communicative. She was the first doctor in years to help treat my chronic sinusitis. The entire office is ultra professional and caring. It's really been the best experience with a health care provider that I've ever had. Highly recommend her.

Simply the best! Dr. Lessow is an absolutely wonderful ENT Doctor, she performed much needed Septoplasty and the results are incredible. She is caring, informative and has a lovely disposition. I highly recommend her for anyone seeking excellent ENT care in New York.

Dr. Lessow is wonderful. She is compassionate, knowledgable and truly listens to any concerns/questions/issues. The sinus surgery she performed truly changed my life -- I went from having chronic sinus infections to only 1-2 per year. I would happily recommend her to anyone!

I have been seeing Dr Lessow for nearly 2 years. Over that time we have resolved my sinus issues and improved my quality of life. It is a pleasure to interact with Dr Lessow and her wonderful office staff each time I visit.
