New York is a melting pot of cultural influences, and Astoria—historically the center of New York’s Greek population—is now attracting many of Eastern European descent as well. In order to best serve the community’s specifics, ENTA’s office there will include Dr. George Poulos, whose family is itself of Greek heritage. In addition, and to best serve the pediatric demographics of the area, Dr. Tamekia Wakefield—the only fellowship-trained pediatric otolaryngologist in Queens County—will also serve patients from that office. Audiologist Kerri O’Connor, Au.D. will also work out of the new Astoria office.
"Our passion for serving the general as well as the specific healthcare needs of local communities is what we are all about,” noted ENTA CEO Robert Glazer, “and expanding into a second Queens location, with this roster of superb physicians, is the perfect opportunity to further do so”.
“This new facility is yet another example of ENTA’s singular focus on the quality of our patients’ doctor visit experience.” added Wayne Eisman, MD, President of ENT and Allergy, “Among other things, our new Astoria space will deliver high levels of comfort, convenience, and leading edge technology”.
Commented Dr. George Poulos, who is fluent in Greek, “I became a doctor to help people, and my opportunity to serve the population of Astoria is an absolutely perfect fit”.
“I live right in Long Island City”, added Dr. Tamekia Wakefield, “so serving the children of Astoria means helping neighbors. This is my neighborhood!”
Astoria is served by the E M R New York City Subway trains that stop at Steinway Street and 46th Street stations on the underground IND Queens Boulevard Line as well as the N Q trains which run along the elevated BMT Astoria Line abo
