13/12/12 3 1 3 3 First time my daughter went to Dr Ardito he saw her for 5 mins and said she needed surgery. Second time he wrote her a prescription and it was in another patients name. Since it was right before the holiday I had to wait 5 days to get correct prescription. Since my daughter's surgery she has had an ear infection. The surgery was a month ago. Today she had yet another appointment for her ear and we waited an hour and were never seen. I left out of frustration and having other business to take care of. I will be going to another specialist that can hopefully help my child.  Respond

08/05/12 1 1 1 2 He really lost his edge. He was distracted during the examination, seems to have rather dated equipment, and his office staff is rather unfriendly. I will see another doctor.

20/07/11 1 1 1 1 I went to Dr Ardito based on the ratings I saw here. After the first appointment, I thought he was having a bad day, but when the other appointments were just as bad, i figured that he's not what he used to be. I'm going to see another ENT next.  Respond

11/12/09 5 5 5 5 I really think that Dr. Ardito is an excellent physician and surgeon. He is very thorough and detailed, he listens intently to what you say, and he explains things thoroughly. His office staff is very efficient. He performed a UPPP on me back in July 2009. I would recommend Dr. Ardito based upon his experience, knowledge, professionalism, and double board certified qualifications.

23/03/09 5 5 3 3 I only went to him 1 time but I didn't care for him. He was courteous but I didn't see what was so great about him. On the other hand, his office staff is wonderful. I decided to see another ENT after that visit.

15/09/08 5 4 5 5 He has a great bedside manner and is always willing to hear your concerns. I never felt rushed in the exam room. Had sinus surgery done by him this year. I'm finally able to live without suffering. His wait time in waiting area has gotten better, but I recommend bringing a book. His PA Rob Cummings is excellent too- very knowledgeable.

19/03/07 3 5 5 I wasn't very happy about the wait until I met with Dr. Ardito. It was easy to figure out why I waited so long; he treats you like you're the only patient there. Nice when you're in the exam room with him, not so nice when you're waiting to be seen. A good doctor who I will continue to see even with the wait. I'll just bring a good book from now on!!  Respond

03/01/07 4 5 5 Dr. Ardito has performed 3 surgeries on my very broken and distorted nose and once on my vocal chords for a node. He is an outstanding doctor (to say the least). I visited various plastic surgeons and ENT doctors before choosing Dr. Ardito. He has a fantastic bedside manner and was always very good with comforting me during appointments, surgeries, post-op, and whatever complaints I had were taken care of promptly and seriously. Never had a more amazing doctor take care of my needs. My friends and family also have gone to him and love him. If your looking to have surgery with him, go to the Paoli Surgery Center (which he suggests). The environment is wonderful and the nurses amazing. Dr. Ardito is one of a kind!!!  Respond

16/10/06 4 5 5 Excellent doctor. Did a great job with the surgery for my Sleep Apnea. I'd definitely recomend him! I waited awhile for my office visits, and waited months for my sleep apnea surgery. I feel that the waiting is mostly out of his hands.

30/08/06 1 3 4 Good doctor but waited an hour in the waiting room, another 20 minutes in the exam room, and he walked out mid discussion to take a call. He also recorded the recommended course of action to his tape recorder before discussing it with me...I'm all for expediency but what he was saying was quite alarming to me as I know a good bit of medical terminology. He should have gone over everything in detail with me before speaking into the recorder.  Respond
