Extraordinary MD

“Dr. Setzen has cared for me for over 20 years. He literally saved my life. I had serious sinus issues, which he cured through surgery and devotion. One of the finest doctors I have ever met.”

~ Melissa Arnold on December 13th, 2015


“My 6 year old daughter had terrible sinus issues, Doctor Setzen did Endoscopic surgery on her. She is now 9 years old and is still doing very well. Dr. Setzen is an excellent doctor, very thorough, kind and he listens to what you and your child have to say. I would recommend him for any ear nose and throat issues.”

Life Changing Procedure

“Dr. Setzen was the first ENT to suggest a balloon sinus dilation for my sinus issues, which have plagued me for ages. The procedure was done in his office in less that 90 minutes….most of the time was for allowing the anesthesia to take effect. This was a life changing procedure. Relieved nasal congestion, facilitated breathing and minimized infections from colds. Kleenex has lost a good customer.”

Michael Setzen saved my life. I was so happy afterwards, my wife had the surgery 2 months after I did.

“Dr. Setzen is by far the best doctor for anything sinus related. I was bed ridden for months. I had Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery, followed up by a couple of debreavment appointments, and I got my life back. Endless headaches, blurred vision, congestion, misery no more. I have about 8 people in my life that I am completely grateful for- and Dr. Setzen is on that list. His hands are steady, his skill is unparalleled, and the results were astounding. What a heck of a guy with a cool South African accent! Just GREAT!”

Amazing Doctor and Staff!! Highly Recommend!!

“I had a headache every day my whole life until I met Dr. Setzen. Dr. Setzen did sinus surgery on me and I have never felt better!!! He was professional and took great care of me. He took the time to explain to me every step of the process. This was my first surgery ever and he had a way of making me feel comfortable and at ease. I am so grateful to Dr, Setzen and his staff for eliminating my daily headaches!! I recommend Dr, Setzen to anyone who doesn’t want to suffer any more!!”

“Dr. Setzen performed balloon nasal surgery on me. It wasn’t painful and with the help from his staff it went great. Dr. Setzen took me step by step through the whole procedure which really helped me. I can now breath better and hopefully I will not get sinus infections this winter.”

Does Up-To-Date Procedures

“Dr Setzen preformed a balloon nasal surgery in his office which was greatly convenient to open the blocked nasal passages. It was a much better situation than going to the hospital. It was not painful and well tolerated. It has been 3 months since the procedure and it seems to be a success. There is no scaring either.”

Best ENT on LI … Maybe in NY!

“I’ve been a patient since Dr. Setzen corrected my deviated septum in 2004. He is a wonderful doctor … I’ve never breathed or slept better – I visit him twice a year now unless I get sick and I always feel so much better after he treats me. I don’t have sinus headaches and rarely get sinus infections since being his patient. He is a great doctor with a wonderful “bedside manner.” He also tells you what he is doing and makes you feel comfortable if you should have any anxiety. I live in suffolk and drive all the way to his office in Great Neck because he is THAT good! Definitely the best ENT specialist/expert around.”

Chronic Sinus/Balloon Sinus Surgery

“My entire experience with Dr Setzen, as well as his entire staff, was just so warm, comprehensive and comforting. I suffered for many years and I found Dr Setzen and staff to be understanding and knowledgeable regarding all of my symptoms for which were treated very effectively.”

~ Thomas Ackerman on July 25th, 2015


Unsightly Bump and Severely Deviated Septum Fixed with Surgery

“I have had breathing trouble for as long as I can remember, but what really pushed to be to finally go through with my sinus surgery was the fact that as I got older, a bone in my nose started to protrude out further and further (to the point that Dr. Setzen was convinced I must’ve broken it at some point during childhood). My breathing problems continued to worsen, affecting my ability to fall/stay asleep at night. My mom had had a similar surgery 23 years ago done by Dr. Setzen and she has always raved about how he changed her life, so when the time came to book my surgery I knew there was no one better that him to do my surgery as well. It’s been a few months since my surgery last fall, and I couldn’t be happier that I went through with it. Dr. Setzen eased my fears along the way, and had amazing bedside manner after the fact. I would highly recommend him to anyone with sinus problems, his expertise and way with patients is unmatched!”
