Nation’s Foremost Otolaryngology Practice Adds Even More Clinical Experience and Expertise to Westchester County, New York
Tarrytown, NY –June 20, 2017: To ensure it can best serve both the present and future needs of the patient population in Westchester County, N.Y., ENT and Allergy Associates, LLP (ENTA) recently upgraded and expanded its full service, state-of-the-art clinical facility in Yorktown Heights, located at 2651 Strang Blvd., Yorktown Heights, NY 10598.
But it didn’t stop there.
To further expand the depth and breadth of ear, nose, throat, allergy, and audiology care offered to nearby communities, ENTA has reached out to a doctor of unparalleled expertise and excellence, and today announced the addition of Lawrence Z. Meiteles, MD to its existing team of superb physicians.
Dr. Meiteles will join the Practice’s new Yorktown office in August, 2017.
In addition to being an otolaryngologist who will see adult and pediatric patients, Dr. Meiteles is a fellowship trained otologist. As such, he will become a member of ENTA’s Ear and Dizziness team and begin immediately treating tertiary care disorders affecting the ears, balance system, temporal bone, and related functions. Dr. Meiteles has a special interest in disorders of the inner ear, hearing, balance testing and cochlear implants. With his expertise on hearing preservation, Dr. Meiteles has performed hundreds of successful Implantable and semi-implantable hearing aids. A bone anchored hearing aid (BAHA) is an implantable osteointegrated device used to improve hearing in patients with certain types of hearing loss by stimulating the inner ear through the bone.
The new ENTA Yorktown office, which opened on May 22, 2017, is an 8,700 square foot clinical facility, generously equipped with 12 ENT exam rooms, one procedure room, two audiology booths, one hearing aid dispensing room, four allergy rooms and all of the patient service-centric protocols for which ENTA is known.
At that facility, Dr. Meiteles will join an extraordinary team of specialists including Otolaryngologists Michael Bergstein, M.D., Gary Fishman, M.D., Scott R. Messenger, M.D., George Pazos, M.D., Debra S. Reich, M.D., and allergist/immunologist John County, M.D., F.A.A.A.A.I.
Dr. Lawrence Meiteles, a seasoned otolaryngologist/otologist with over 26 years of medical success, comes on board from private practice located in Chappaqua, New York. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree cum laude in Biology and Pre-Health Sciences from Yeshiva University in New York, New York, and his medical degree with special distinction for research in Otorhinolaryngology from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Bronx, New York. Dr. Meiteles then trained in a General Surgery Internship at Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine in Bronx, New York, and served his Residency in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery - for which he was chosen Chief Resident at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary and New York Medical College in New York. He went on to complete a Fellowship in Otology, Neurotology and Skull Base Surgery and a Research Fellowship in Otolaryngology at the Kresge Hearing Research Institute, both at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
Board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology, Dr. Meiteles has been the Medical Director of the Balance Center at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mt. Kisco since 2004. In addition, he serves as Associate Professor of Clinical Otolaryngology and Associate Professor of Clinical Neurosurgery – Head and Neck Surgery at New York Medical College in Valhalla. Dr. Meiteles is affiliated with both Northern Westchester Hospital in Mt. Kisco and Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla.
Dr. Meiteles has made numerous presentations and served as an invited lecturer at medical conferences around the country. As part of his commitment to education, he frequently teaches residents and medical students and continues to expand his own knowledge base by regularly attending scientific meetings and continuing medical education courses both locally and out-of-state. He has been recognized by Castle Connolly as a "Westchester Top Doctor."
“It is rare to find someone with Lawrence Meiteles’ long track record of patient-centered accomplishments,” remarked Dr. Robert Green, President of ENT and Allergy Associates. “The addition of this outstanding clinical professional is the perfect complement to both our existing Yorktown physician roster and the new state-of-the-art facility we recently began offering to our valued local patients.”
George Pazos, MD, a fellow partner at ENTA’s Yorktown office, noted, “Lawrence Meiteles’ stellar reputation throughout our community is extremely well deserved, and his many areas of clinical expertise add to and align perfectly with what we offer - superior medical care one patient at a time.
