Coastal Ear Nose and Throat has helped me tremendously with my ear, allergy, and asthma problems. The doctors are so kind and attentive, and the staff is professional, organized, and friendly. I’m so grateful for their help.

My 2 year old daughter had a tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy as well as tubes put in her ears. I couldn't be happier with Dr. Houston and Coastal! The experience was seamless and my daughter is hearing things clearly for the first time, it's incredible.

Dr. Engel is an amazing physician. I was negative about tubes for my 13 month old at first but he assured me that it was nothing major and how much my son needed them. I’m so glad I went ahead with it and his care during surgery was the best! I highly recommend Dr. Engel. Office is extremely organized and makes things so much easier for a busy mom!

Dr. Newkirk is kind, patient, compassionate, and an overall excellent doctor. I was happy with my visit and outcome.

I requested a survey as Jennifer was so competent in receiving and interacting. In my opinion, it is rare to see such wonderful interpersonal and executive skills.

I was a new patient and saw Dr. Shargorodsky. I can’t say enough about him. He was so easy to talk to and made me immediately feel comfortable. The care I got, and treatment that I was given was terrific. It was a great experience.


The physical therapist, Dr. Janine DeBrito, cured my dizziness. She explained everything very patiently, was gentle, and took her time. She also showed us how to treat the crystal condition if it should reoccur. I recommend her without reservation.


I recently had the least invasive surgery done on both ears by Dr. McAfee for a condition called Surfers Ear caused by not by wearing ear plugs in the winter time. I was going to have this procedure done out of state until I found out that Dr. McAfee specializes in the surgery. I was to say thank you not only him but his staff at the surgery center for putting me at ease and providing me with exceptional and outstanding care. I anyone was debating on getting this surgery feel free to PM I would be more then happy to share my experience with you.
