I visited Dr. Astrachan last month in the Madison office for a problem breathing through my nose. He quickly diagnosed my problem as a deviated septum. I booked surgery two weeks following appointment. The next day The packing was removed and like a miracle I could suddenly breathe through my nose! It’s Dr. Astrachan is knowledgeable, Professional, efficient and very skillfully diagnosed and fixed my problem. The office staff is wonderful. I have been in the medical field my entire life over 45 years and highly recommend Dr. Astrachan and his staff. Wonderful experience.

Sinus infections make life an utter misery. Dr. Astrachan is a highly competent and intelligent physician who inspires confidence. He stayed with me through several attempts to rid me of my infection until it was stamped out. I give him the highest rating and I count myself fortunate to have such an able specialist as my doctor.

Dr. David Astrachan has treated me a few times over the last 10 plus years. I have had issues with Reflux disease “Gerd” for many years. If you are familiar or not with this condition you may not even know you have it till the symptoms escalate. I am now well on my way to full recovery and getting my health back thanks to Dr Astrachan! He sat me down and had a very frank discussion of what I had and what I had to do. He explained it so well and recommended a book to read. Quite frankly it has changed my life. I have lost weight, great sleep, no snoring, no coughing are just a few of the benefits. If you are suffering this is the guy you have to see! Simply the best.

2/5/2021: We just want say that the new audiologist, Dave DeFilippo, is wonderful. What a joy to have a person who actually listens first, and does not assume what is going on. He was personable and friendly, as well as professional and very knowledgeable. He corrected settings on my husband’s hearing aids as well as added new tips and adjusted the wires, which really helped so much with the way they fit. Dave is very easy to speak with, and we both felt like our concerns were being addressed in the best way possible. He is a gem. We hope to see him again at the next 6 month appointment.

Dr. Astrakhan is my hero. I am amazed at how well I can breath each and every day since he corrected the defects in my nose. My whole body feels healthier and no struggle to inhale anymore and I can sleep with my mouth closed. At 62 I waited way to long to come see him. But nonetheless it is a wonderful transition. Not only my breathing is 100% better but my body receives the oxygen it needs and as a result my entire body feels healthier. Breathing normally is the essence of life.

I cannot recommend this place enough. After 8 months of Ear ringing and dizziness, and after seeing 2 other ENT specialists, Dr Astrachan diagnosed the issue and solved the problem with one visit. He also made other recommendations for my future which are all working out well. If you think your out of options, I would suggest a visit.

“The Doc” is one of the very best professionals I have ever gone to. He diagnosed and fixed a chronic nose problem which other doctors had not been able to treat successfully. He is very compassionate and treats you with intelligence and respect. I can’t tell you how very pleased I am with Dr Astrachan!

Dr. Astrachan was helpful and understanding during a difficult ear problem. He diagnosed the unusual situation and prescribed an appropriate course of medications. Without his expertise and proper treatment I would most likely need to have a hearing aid as a result of a bad viral infection.

I saw Dr. Astrachan in May of 2019 for a sinus infection that resisted antibiotics for 5 months. He quickly diagnosed my problem and did a surgical procedure. Everything he told me to expect from the procedure was spot on accurate. My packing was removed after 24 hours and I was finally able to taste and smell again within a week. I highly recommend Dr Astrachan, his wit, humor and professionalism are unparalleled in my opinion. Two weeks after my procedure in July, I was able to smell my flowering jasmine plant for the first time in 6 months .

Wonderful experience with Dr. Astrachan at the Milford location today. Staff very friendly and professional. Doctor professional with a good "bed side manner". He was reassuring, understanding and informative. I highly recommend this practice.

I've been seeing Dr Hecht for 20+ years. The man is BRILLIANT! I have extensive ear issues. Dr Hecht has performed my ear surgeries & has kept everything at bay since! I would never change my ENT dr. It's extremely rare that I have to wait more than 5-10 mins to see him too. Very satisfied with Dr Hecht.

The doctors were terrific, my issue is with the rude office staff. When I first made an appointment I explained my financial situation and they agreed to accept what my insurance paid and to wave my copay, well after 4 office visits and 6 months of time a woman ”Mary” calls and she is rude, unwilling to have any type of conversation and keeps demanding I pay the balance. Well then I get the privilege of speaking to the office manager “Sue” and she starts off normal then degrades into a aggressive condescending, attitude. She quickly starts dismissing anything I said and the moment you have the nerve to challenge anything the all mighty “Sue” says she will become even more rude, aggressive and use any power she has to threaten and intimidate. I fell sorry for any person especially any elderly person that has to interact with this office. I am ver happy with the actual trained staff and doctors, but the untrained bullying office staff ruins the whole experience.
