Telephones are out today

There is a problem with my regular telephone line (212-996-2995). We are working to fix this. In the meantime, feel free to contact either me or my staff through this website, or by email (, and we will respond as soon as possible.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Following the peak of the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020, my practice reopened for in-person visits, with the option for telemedicine consultation where desired and appropriate. Of course, I am carefully and continually following all of the relevant data and guidance (federal, state and local) to make sure that I do everything in my power to protect patients and their families who come to my offices.

Masks are mandatory in all of my offices for all family members and patients over two (except for during an examination). Furthermore, all of my employees are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, with no exceptions.

Of course, I also strongly encourage all of the families in my practice to vaccinate eligible family members as soon as possible, to help limit the spread of the virus, to prevent unforeseen future complications of even asymptomatic infections, and to minimize the development of new variants.

I am always happy to discuss any concerns that you may have about vaccination to the best of my ability.

Stay safe!

Mike Rothschild, MD

Hello, and thanks for visiting my website!

I am a pediatric ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist in New York City, with office hours in northern New Jersey and Brooklyn as well. This site provides information about my practice, as well as educational material about common childhood ENT conditions.

You can
book appointments online for the New York or New Jersey office, or for telemedicine visits. If you are new to my practice, you can also fill our all of the registration form online when scheduling your visit. If you prefer, you can still call (212) 996-2995 for an appointment - my staff will let you know how to access the registration forms through our portal.

I welcome
general questions about pediatric ENT from any site visitors, although I cannot make a specific recommendation about anyone that I have not seen. I have been doing my best to answer these questions for thousands of online correspondents from around the world since 1998. Families of established patients in my practice can also communicate with me through this site, or with my staff if you have questions about appointments, medication or billing. I have also made available educational materials and office forms, including our notice of privacy practices. While I encourage online contact, my telephone line is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Please feel free to call if you need to contact me urgently.

I have a number of commercial products that I recommend for my patients - I have no financial interest in these items, I just like them! Here is my
Amazon list of some of these. I post regularly on Instagram, about medical topics and other interesting things. Check my account out @snotdoctor.

Finally, many of you know that I am an
avid scuba diver and that I especially enjoy exploring the historic shipwrecks and vibrant marine ecosystem in our backyard, off the New Jersey shore. Your child (or you) might enjoy my children's book about the sea life in the waters near New York City!

I hope that this site is helpful for you and your family!
