I have never been so disappointed with a medical examination as I was with Dr. Allegretto. I went to see him for voice problems after waiting almost a year to get in. I have had chronic heart burn all my life, and have seen my voice deteriorate in the last 5 or so years. After looking at my throat, he told me it was "definitely beat up," then asked if I was "one of those girls who's really loud all the time." I asked him if it could have anything to do with my acid reflux, and he dismissed the idea, telling me that he's seen "a lot of women like me" and that I need to "radically change my lifestyle if I want my voice to get better," recommending that I essentially stop talking. I have never had a doctor be so uncaring about my concerns and unrealistic in his recommendations.

He reluctantly told me he would refer me to a voice clinic and 7 months later, I received a letter from the voice clinic asking me to send in a questionnaire, after which I will have to way another several months. Very unimpressed.

Dr. Allegretto, and his staff are incredible. My experience has always been 100% Dr. Allegretto, has always taken the time to explain every detail, and expresses everything with kindness, and clarity. Thank you Dr. Allegretto, and staff, keep up the wonderful work.

My experience with Dr. Allegretto and his staff was great. After almost a decade of throat problems I was referred to him to have my tonsils removed and it has done nothing short of change my life. Dr. Allegretto and his staff made me feel comfortable and informed of what the process was going be and what to expect through out. The consult was quick but informative. While some may feel his bedside manner could improve I felt he was just matter of fact and did not sugar coat anything which I personally appreciated. The day of the surgery both Dr. Allegretto and his staff ensured I was comfortable and answered any quetions I had, They did a great job of putting me at ease.

The Doctor was very good. I know he's very busy but never seemed rushed. I would defiantly recommend this doctor. My surgery was great, felt a difference immediately.

Dr. Allegretto is an amazing doctor and surgeon. I have seen him many times regarding my throat issues. He is always helpful and his staff is great. I know it takes a long time to get in to him for an appointment but it is only because so many people want to see him. The wait is worth it. Be patient and you will not regret it. Thank you Dr. Allegretto and staff.

Dr. Allegretto did a Parotidectomy on me and I found him to be very professional, empathetic and thorough in his practice. I highly recommend his services.

It's been almost 3 years now since Dr Allegretto removed pollyps from my nasal cavities. For years I suffered from recurring sinus infections, sometimes 3 or 4 a year. It would last upwards to 4 weeks sometimes...I would also lose my sense of smell and taste. The surgery he performed changed me completely. I can breathe so much better, any sinus inflamation that I experience now is minor. He did an awesome job! As for his bedside manner, he was great in my opinion. Thank you Dr. Allegretto from a very grateful patient!

Dr. Allegretto saved my life. He diagnosed my tracheal stenosis the very first time I saw him after I sufferred for almost 5 years with it getting progressively worse to the point of almost suffocating to death once. He has operated on my throat 3 times and I can now breathe again and function like a normal human being. He is very knowledgeable and caring & I thank God I was finally referred to him.

His bedside mannor is not the greatest. I have been using nose sprays for a long time and he made me feel guilty for doing that. He did not make me feel like he could do anything to help me.
