Dr. David is a great doctor. He is kind, informative and straightforward. He is working with me on a rare cancer and my feeling is that he really, really cares. 5-stars.

Have been there 2x. Always taken on time. Everyone is great. The Dr listens to you and you never feel rushed.I highly recommend Dr Hiltzik.

I underwent a total thyroidectomy (which was quite complex) and subsequent vocal cord surgery, both within the last 6 months. In my opinion, Dr. Hiltzik is a true miracle worker! I have not felt this healthy in years. He is not only a phenomenal surgeon but is compassionate and extremely patient. I never felt rushed or unheard at any of my many appointments. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Hiltzik and I am forever greateful to him.

After waiting 3 months to get an appointment they called to reschedule for another 2 weeks. Got to office at our scheduled time and there was standing room only with patients visibly upset ad agitated. There was even a man cursing using 4 letter words because he was waiting so long. Ended up leaving after hearing it was an hour and a half wait. Staff was not friendly and looked miserable. Think I’ll find another doctor.

very good doctor hiltzik.on all clearly explained my situation, and very well made me surgery on the elision of polyps. I will all recommend him as an experienced doctor.

Dr Hiltzik is one of the most prominent ENT Physicians in his field and time. His knowledge base is endless and comes naturally . He articulates what needs to be communicated better then any lawyer . He won't steer you towards his pocket . Extremely honest . Regular family man that just so happened to become one of the elite physicians in The north eastern USA. If you can't trust this doctor you don't trust anyone. As far as his staff . In regards to his manhattan office .They are all tier 1

One of the best Doctors I've ever used! I would not hesitate to call him again in the future and would recommend him to everyone I meet!

Words cant say how amazing my consultation and surgery w/Dr H went or how happy I am today. Im 37 and lived with enlarged tonsils, tonsillitis and a badly deviated septum all my life. I was super motivated to find a doctor that listened, saw and acted on facts. Dr H did that and booked my surgery that day. I expected the very worst in recovery but I was able to talk and eat hours after surgery! Today is Day 8 of recovery, had my nose splints out and I feel like a new person! Thank you Dr H!

Saw Dr Hiltzik today and immediately felt at ease... He takes the time to listen and understand why you are there... Diagnosis was quick and he had an immediate treatment plan Thus relieving my anxiety ... The staff was very friendly and professional as well...

Unfortunately I have to rate Dr Hiltzik a 1 because the wait time is ALWAYS ALWAYS 2 to 2 1/2 hrs!! There isn't enough room in the waiting room AND they double book to no end..it's ineffective and inconsiderate of patients time!

I had a great experience with Doctor Hiltzik. He has great bedside manner. He was quickly able to diagnose my nose problem, reduce my inflammation and ultimately successfully operate and remove the polyp. The surgery was a great success in all respects.
1 Dr.Roy Calafato in Staten Island, NY – Apr 30, 2017
Dr. Hiltzik operated on my ear by removing a large growth. Surgery was performed in his office and I was able to go home afterward. From the beginning to end he was informative and supportive. He took extra care to have the growth reviewed for cancer twice. Fortunately it was benign. He has an excellent bed side manner and a good sense of humor which is very relaxing. I would use him again and highly recommend him.

Horrible took 2 months to get an appointment then they changed it twice doesn't matter I told him I was in pain the secretaries of very nasty
1 Rick in Staten Island, NY – Apr 11, 2017
Would absolutely recommend Dr. Hiltzik to anyone. He performed surgery on my throat two years ago and I consistently go back to his office for follow ups. Not only is he smart and a great surgeon (you can barely see the scar on my neck) but his personality allows him to ease tense situations. Great doctor, great man, again would recommend to all. -Rick Livan

Dr. David Hiltzik is a wonderful Doctor. Always very professional, knowledgeable, friendly. He performed Polyp Removal surgery on me and it made a world of difference. I highly recommend him.
2 Neil Schimler in Staten Island, NY – Mar 24, 2017
Waited two months for appointment. Had snow storm and called to reschedule. Waited another two weeks and go to doctor's office. Nobody put my new appointment on his schedule. Hour and half wait. I had another appointment and left. Incompetent office staff. I'll find another doctor.
2 1 Staten Island – Mar 22, 2017
Not sure why any doctor would run an office like this. ALWAYS a 2 hour wait! While he might be the best on Staten Island I would try to find an ENT who does not subject his patients to the stress of having to stand (although waiting room has 20 seats still not enough) and wait 2 hours every time. Ridiculous and very poorly run office management. No matter how busy a doctor is there is no reason to have 30 patients waiting at one time.
Lou Demarco in Staten Island, NY – Feb 25, 2017
For 15 years had a very bad deviated septum and throat disorder. Then I met Dr. Hiltzik and he not only repaired and fixed my nose and throat but was very helpful in the healing process later. He and his staff did a great job and I would highly recommend them for anyone else who needed them for themselves or their family members. RECOMMEND.
Peter in Staten Island, NY – Feb 17, 2017
Went to Dr Hiltzik twice. Wait was long, but when you want the best it's worth the wait. He was easy to talk to and made sure I understood everything. Nice doctor. Would definitely go back if I needed to.
Stella Schmidt in Staten Island, NY – Feb 17, 2017
Dr. Hiltzik is a wonderful doctor. He makes you comfortable and takes his time to explain your diagnosis. He is a very thorough doctor. My whole family goes to him and he is the only ENT I would let my kids go to. I would highly recommend Dr. Hiltzik
Staten Island, NY – Feb 16, 2017
The wait time can be very long, but it is worth it. I had a very good experience with Dr Hiltzik and his assistants. The office is very busy but they were very thorough and helped me set up the appointments for the tests I needed done and took care of all the insurance authorizations. The PA, his secretary Carol, and Ann Marie were very helpful.
3 Staten Island, NY – Feb 11, 2017
Two hour wait. Was told it was an exceptional day. Dr. Hiltzig never addressed my wife or myself directly. He spoke to the PA. Never asked if I had any questions, he was in and out in less than five minutes. PA was more helpful. Not a great experience.
2 Keith T. in Staten Island, N.Y. – Jan 28, 2017
Wait time was over 2 hours all 3 times I visited. That might have been acceptable if Dr. Hiltzik spent more than 2 minutes with me but that wasn't the case. To add insult to injury 2 of the three times I saw Dr. Hiltzik he not only did not know who I was but had the wrong chart. I gave the office the benefit of the doubt and was continuing visits for a rhinoplasty but when asked for pictures of the doctors previous work I was laughed at and told that was illegal. Very unprofessional.
Quacy Jones in Staten Island, NY – Jan 20, 2017
I had a surgical procedure done today, I had a turbinate reduction done. Everything went smoothly in a timely fashion, I rate him at at 95% success rate, noone's perfect but Dr Hiltzik is the man and did everything the way I wanted him to. His assistants made the process fun and calm as well.
1 Bronx, NY – Jan 18, 2017
Office staff is rude. The Waiting time for your appointment is unacceptable every single time. And It's impossible to reach the doctor by phone or get a call back. Even after surgery. I was very disappointment red because Dr Hiltzik has a good personality and I like him. There needs to be better management.

My husband and I were referred to Dr. Hiltzik for a parotidectomy. Dr. Hiltzik examined my husband and explained the procedure, potential complications and answered all our questions thoroughly. Dr. Hiltzik is very professional and confident in his expertise. The scar is almost completely hidden and zero facial paralysis. Thank you to Dr. Hiltzik for being so amazing!
7 Kevin Hooker in Staten Island, NY – Feb 09, 2016
Dr Hiltzik is a young, professional, experienced, caring, informative doctor. He recently performed a total thyroidectomy on me and everything went perfectly. I considered other physicians at MSKCC but eventually chose Dr Hiltzik and I'm glad I did. I would definitely recommend him for...Read More

Wonderful doctor, has a great bedside manner. Fully explained everything with my vocal chords. I'm a singer and he even let me see my vocal chords while scoping. Very kind, and would recommend!

Had breathing difficulty after breaking my nose. Was immediately at ease after seeing Dr Hiktzik who was always available for any questions and listened to everything I had to say. Performed surgery with the utmost care, would recommend him to anyone and everyone
