Dr Genack is wonderful. He is very personalble and understanding. He is always able to address all of my concerns. I would reccommend him time and time again. He is reassuring and thorough. The office staff is very accomodating and plesant. I have been using him as my doctor for years and will continue. Five stars plus plus for this physician!

Dr. Genack does not have the most pleasing bedside manner. However, he is absolutely thorough, and makes sure he leaves no stone unturned. I wanted medicine for my reflux, and he would not prescribe it. Life changes are the only thing that needed to happen , and thats what I did. He has no patience for crap, and demands his patients follow his orders. He is just as demanding on himself to give the best of care to his patients. I always left his office confident I would feel better and always did. It doesnt hurt that he is so cute either. I recommend Dr. Genack whenever anyone I know needs a great diagnostician and m.d.

i called to make an appointment because i had been having terrible vertigo attacks for quite some time on and off and kept seeing my internist and a neurologist but was never getting better. my doctor referred me to see dr genack for an examination. i had a friend who had gone to see him for the same problem and she had told me that he cured her. i called the office to set up an appointment and when i asked if i can come that very day the woman on the phone told me to come in an hour. i came to the office and was greeted by a very friendly receptionist who helped me with some dizzy forms. i sat down in the waiting room which actually felt like someones den. it was very nice with a salt water fish tank. the audiologist took me to the room and asked me some more questions. dr genack then saw me and did some maneuvers on me so that he can see what kind of dizziness i had. then i had a hearing test with the audiologist. i went back two weeks later for a recheck of my vertigo and no longer had any symptoms. i was very pleased with the service and care that i received at this office and was quite thankful that they squeezed me in that day. i was also quite surprised about the size of the office because from the outside of the building and the waiting area it was quite deceiving. the office was tremendous with lots of exam rooms and it was immaculate. i told the receptionist that it was one of the nicest offices i had ever been in and she told me that everyone always says that to her. i would highly recommend dr genack to anyone

i was hiking with some friends over the weekend and i fell really hard. i was bleeding alot and my friends were very nervous. my mom made some phone calls and was told to contact dr. genack. he saw me as an emergency in his office on sunday nite. i needed stitches above my eye and my nose was broken. dr genack told me to come back in a few days when the swelling goes down so that he could recheck it. sure enough when i came back and the swelling went down my nose was not straight. dr genacks nurse helped schedule the surgery. everyone in the office was so helpful since it all had to be arranged so quickly. i came back a week later and had my splint taken off and am happy to say my nose is back where it started!!!

my dermatologist referred me to see dr genack for a skin cancer on my nose. i was very nervous as my nose is in the center of my face but my doctor assured me that dr genack was the best. i came in to the office and was pleasantly surprised to see a beautiful fish tank which was calming as i was so nervous. a very pretty girl at the front desk greeted me and even helped me fill out my paperwork after a few minutes i was put in to an exam room. dr genack took the time to show me photos of results on other patients and spent alot of time with me answering all my questions and helping me understand what kind of result i would get. i had to have surgery scheduled in the hospital and the nurse ingrid walked me through all the steps scheduling all my presurgical testing for me and my appt with my internist. after my surgery dr genack called me to see how i was feeling and then later in the day i got another call from his office staff. they were so patient with me again and answered the few questions that i had. i followed up in the office the following week and so far the results look great eventhough dr genack told me it would take up to a year for full healing. i would certainly recommend dr genack to anyone

My first clue things might not be all I expected and hoped for came to me when I pulled up to the building that housed his office. It was old and run down. It wasn??t much better inside. The office was filthy; a dirty tile foyer, very old, worn and stained carpets, stained furniture cushions. My next clue, that should have given me pause to continue, was that they did not accept credit cards for payment. In the business I??m in, I know how and if a business can accept credit cards, and what would cause a business to loose the privilege of accepting credit cards, so this should have been another red flag. As I waited for the doctor to come in I scanned every inch of the examination room. What I saw was very discouraging and raised more red flags.

First, there was a huge black bug crawling across the floor. The floor, as well as the countertops, looked like they hadn??t been cleaned in weeks. There was an old TV in a corner, on a high shelf, full of dust, the cable cord obviously unplugged and hanging down. My thoughts were, I guess they can??t afford to use the TV or it??s broken and can??t afford to buy a new one. I felt very uncomfortable that the entire room was so dirty.

Then I looked closer at the items on the countertops. Everything looked old and dirty, some things even looked ??rusty?. Files and paperwork lay on a top shelf in a messy pile, many of the papers had been there so long you could see the layer of dust on them. I should have walked out right then and there, but I knew I??d be charged for the visit either way, so I decided to sit it out and wait to speak with the doctor.

When Dr. Genack came in he looked very aggravated and angry. The office opened at 10 AM and my appointment was for 10 AM, so I just assumed maybe he didn??t get a good night??s sleep or just came from a difficult surgery at a hospital, so I let the angered look on his face pass. Besides, I don??t like when people judge me by my facial expressions (age lines make you look angry) so I let it go, even though his body movements even showed aggression and anger, I let it go because I had to pay for the visit anyway.

He sat down on his rolling chair and opened my file. Took a quick glance, asked me what I was there for. I said I have a cyst, a growth on my neck?. He looked at it and immediately chastised me for incorrectly calling it a ??cyst?, saying ??That??s not a cyst, it??s a lymphoma!? He took some measurements, jotted some notes in my file, and asked me a couple questions about past history, but asked me no questions about if it was bothering me in any way, what ??symptoms? or issues it was causing.

Next he sat down on his rolling chair, with his hands crossed in front of him on his lap and proceeded to tell me, with a great deal of anger in his voice, how he is sick of insurance companies, he emphatically announced he would not even attempt to fill out any paperwork to get approval for removal of the growth, said he knew no insurance company would pay for it, and went into a tirade about how he??s tired of ??dealing with insurance companies? in general. I was shocked, and asked him, ??Are you saying even if I were to get the insurance company to authorize the surgery or if I were to pay for the surgery myself, you??re telling me you won??t do the surgery?? He would not answer the question, he just continued with his tirade about his disdain for how insurance companies make his life difficult.

He had his chair up against the closed door, and I really wanted to leave, so I got up from the examination chair and apologetically said ??I??m sorry I took up your time, but with all due respect I don??t think this is going to work out and I think I should leave.? He moved out of my way, still ranting about how insurance companies make his life miserable.

I hurried to the front desk to arrange to pay my co-pay for the visit. The woman at the desk, not knowing what had just happened in the examination room, asked me if I would like to make another appointment. I choked on the words ??no, there??s no way I??d come back? and just as I said that the doctor came up from behind me and announced in a nasty and loud voice, talking to the receptionist (loud enough so other patients could hear) ??I told her her insurance company wouldn??t pay for the surgery and she didn??t like that!?. To which I replied, loud enough for the other patients to hear, ??No, it??s you I don??t like, you have a very poor attitude and very bad bedside manner?. I then apologized to the receptionist and told how horrible my experience was, and left.

Dr. Genack is an excellent doctor. He makes sure you have follow up every year after having a procedure. Very caring towards his patients. Would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of head, neck or otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat) surgery. He is very professional. We love him!!
