How was your experience with the doctor?I saw Dr. Liberatore for a series of visits and each time the appointments were phenomenal. The office is beautiful and her office staff is so incredibly sweet. Dr. Liberatore is very nice, extremely thorough and informative. She answered every question I had and ultimately helped me figure out what was going on with me- something that other doctors had brushed off in the past as the common cold. I ultimately ended up having surgery with Dr. Liberatore and everything worked out really well. I highly recommend her and her office!

How was your experience with the doctor?I recently got a sinuplasty done with Dr. Liberatore. She was so incredibly amazing. Not only was my recovery just as quick as she said it would be, but I healed so well with minimal pain thanks to her. Everyone made me feel super comfortable both before, on the day of, and after the surgery (and I am a HUGE baby when it comes to medical procedures). You might wait a little bit for your appointment. But trust me - it's worth every ounce of your time. Everyone is so professional, and booking any appointment with Dr. Liberatore will be the best decision you could make!!

How was your experience with the doctor?I LOVE Lisa Liberatore and her whole staff. It is truly female-run, patient-centered, thorough and by far the most professional, caring, wonderful ENT practice out of dozens of "ENT mills" in NYC I have been to over many, many years. Every doctor and staff member I saw and spoke to was so helpful, informative and really went out of their way to take the time to explain to me the diagnosis process, and in s hort amount of time compared to other practices, the causes of my vertigo. I had hearing tests and a VNG there performed by Dr. Marzouk who is also and outstanding and wonderful, patient-centered doctor. From screening and testing, to DX, to the actual management and prevention of my chronic vertigo, I can't even express how thankful I am to have been consistently treated with respect and high-level communication and health management/solutions that actually worked beautifully. THANK YOU LEXINGTON ENT FOR GIVING ME MY LIFE BACK!

How was your experience with the doctor?I’ve known this doctor for years. She preformed successful sinus surgery on me when I was younger. Now, I’m having a new problem and she made some suggestions regarding who to see and what to have done to confirm possible diagnosis. She also suggested a new medication and asked me to stay in touch to let her know how things are going. Quick and very bright, as usual.

How was your experience with the doctor?Yes, I will be returning for another appointment. Very knowledgeable and gave good advice, especially since I have autoimmune diseases that are affecting my ears and sinuses. There was however a long wait time after she completed my exam and hearing test to circle back with her again.

How was your experience with the doctor?Great experience! Seen right away and super friendly front desk support (when does that ever happen?). Dr. Liberatore and the rest of the team was very knowledgable and thorough. She believes in holistic health so she didn't just focus on the reason I was there. I walked in to have something removed and walked out with my hearing, blood pressure and sinuses checked.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Liberatore performed surgery in October of 2015 to reduce an enlarged turbinate, as well as a deviated septum. She's fantastic, thorough, and the surgery could not have gone better. The issues I had for close to fifteen years completely subsided. Additionally, her staff is top notch. I would highly recommend her!
