01/02/12 5 5 5 5 I'm so happy that I FINALLY found a good ENT! Dr. Aretsky has the kind of bedside manner and concern for patients that is extremely hard to find nowadays. He is very empathetic and gentle. He also REALLY knows his stuff and thoroughly explains your problem, the medications he is recommending, and any potential side-effects. The facility itself is very old-fashioned looking, but don't let that turn you away because his bedside manner, knowledge, and ability to explain things in an easily understandable way are truly remarkable.  Respond

08/11/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Aretsky has been one of the nicest doctors I have met in a very long time. I left my previous ENT because he didn't seem truly concerned about my complaints of congestion. Dr. Aretsky on the other hand, assured me that we will find a way to help my congestion. He was very thorough, polite, funny, and really listened to what I had to say. The only thing that might upset some patients is that the door to the exam room was left open. I didn't mind though, my nasal congestion was nothing that I might be embarrassed about. Anyway, I cannot recommend him enough. Definitely one of the BEST ENTs of Bergen County.

13/05/09 5 4 5 5 Very happy with this man. He is professional and courteous. You get in quick but once in the exam room, the wait can be a bit long. Other than that, it is worth the wait. Highly recommended!!!  Respond

27/11/06 5 5 5 I have used Jersey Phil for over 15 years and he has solved problems other Doctors did not. I have conquered allergies and sinus and rhinitis problems through his advise and treatment. He is what Doctors are suppose to be and use to be generations ago.

12/10/06 3 5 5 I think his punctuality is a bit low because the demand for his services is very high and he is worth the wait.

10/03/06 2 4 3 I have the greatest respect for him but he missed an easy diagnosis, costing me a lot of wasted time off work. He persisted with it in spite of all evidence to the contrary.

25/10/05 4 5 5 I went to several other doctors that gave me the wrong medicine for an ear infection, he knew right away it was a fungal infection and it was treated promptly. He is a good doctor.  Respond

01/10/05 3 5 5 Professional. I know when I visit him, whatever symptoms I have will be addressed, treated, and on their way to going away. I've been seeing him for many, many years. My only hangup is that he keeps the exam room door open so the patient in the other room can hear what's being discussed.  Respond
