A good ENT doctor?

stethoscope and ophthalmoscopeErin asks via Twitter:

Can any of you recommend a good ENT specialist in the area? ... I need to see someone soon ish

As you probably know, ENT = ear, nose, and throat.

Not to be confused with giant trees. You want an Arborist for that.

Lisa Galati - Albany Med. Knows her stuff. Performed surgery on a friend of mine.

I recommend Albany ENT on Patroon Creek--I really like Maggie West-Bump...I've been seeing here for quite a while now and she's great

I've been going to Albany ENT & Allergy and seeing Maggie West Bump but have also seen Donna Silvernail both are PAs...they are both very helpful and listen to you and all your issues! The office staff is very helpful as well as the nurses that give out the allergy shots in the Allergy Center...I have been going there for 8 months now and their location and hours of service are perfect for me!

I really like Dr. Kopp. He is well known and respected and is very kind, respectful and thorough. His office is in Executive Park behind Stuyvesant Plaza.

Typically your primary care physician would refer you to a qualified otolaryngologist in your area.

Here is a certification list of physicians in Albany that have been certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology:

Assuming you're looking for an adult ENT, I highly recommend Lisa Galati. She is thorough, professional and indulged my request for local anaesthesia during a procedure which most doctors would consider an general anaesthesia surgery. Address: 35 Hackett Blvd, Albany, NY 12208
Phone:(518) 262-5575

If you need a pediatric ENT, Jason Mousakes is the man and he's in the same group.

I also see Donna Silvernail at Albany ENT. She is very helpful and thorough. I couldn't be happier.

I second Maggie West-Bump at Albany ENT

I just went to Carlos Pinheiro-Neto today from AMC (35 Hackett Blvd.) and he was very nice! Also knowledgeable and didn't rush me.

Dr. Kaufmann at Albany ENT is great! He's pleasant, really listens to concerns, and tries to get to the bottom of what's going on. He's also not a drug-pusher.

I saw Dr. Awwad. He is very detailed and took his time with me. He did my sinus surgery and I've been reall happy.

The Dutchess County Fair is definitely worth the drive. I may be a little biased because it's my hometown area, but I have yet to go to another fair that rivals it!
