I have been seeing Dr. Szubin for several years now for chronic sinusitis and she is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and keeps up on the latest technologies and treatments. She has conducted 2 sinus surgeries for me and my recovery was way shorter than expected because of the advanced techniques that she uses. Very attentive and communicative. I also LOVE her office staff. they are extremely helpful with complicated insurance and billing issues.

I have been a patient of Dr. Lisa Szubin and the office's audiologist Dr. Aisling Rubas for about three years now and an incredibly satisfied patient. Dr. Szubin/Dr. Rubas both: Kind, caring, professional, efficient. They listen, examine, test, assess, and recommend course of action and provide consistent professional follow-up. As a result of the above, while I was always "satisfied" with my hearing, I have never heard better in my life.
