Patient Reviews for Dr. Patitucci
Having recently visited with Dr. Lana Patitucci, I would like to make a recommendation. I have had seasonal allergies and excessive congestion. Dr. Patitucci treated me and I can say that I have not had the congestion since.
She is more than a doctor. She is a miracle worker!
I highly recommend her.

Dr. Patitucci is extraordinarily kind and quite good at her job! I've been struggling with tinnitus, and she's been immensely helpful with it, taking me through the steps I need to take to prevent it from getting any worse and advising me on what types of drugs and activities to avoid. She is very patient and willing to answer all your questions, an important trait for any doctor to have. I'd recommend her to anyone who's in the market for an ENT specialist!
Words can’t describe what an amazing doctor Lana Patitucci is. After meeting her only once, I knew I was going to love her. She has a great bedside manner. Dr. Patitucci explains exactly what she is going to do during your surgery, gives you the best options, and eases any fears you may have going into the surgery. Prior to coming to Henry Berger ENT, I always had issues breathing and was unable to smell very well. After meeting with Lana, she told me that I had 2 deviated septums. She explained to me that the only option to fix this was to get surgery. At age 26, I was very hesitant and afraid to have surgery because I had never had it before (and I avoided it at all costs). I was extremely afraid so I told her I’d think about it. At my next appointment with Lana, I decided to schedule my surgery. She eased my mind by telling me that the recovery time was quite quick, the surgery took about 20 minutes, and that there would be no packing or black eyes after my surgery. After my surgery, everything that Lana told me would happen…happened. She went so into depth as to how healing would go, I had minor pain, nose bleeds for about 3 weeks on and off and the best part was…no packing in my nose. The surgery was successful. It has been 4 months and I’m able to breathe so much better and smell things that I never smelled before. This surgery was life changing for me. I would highly recommend Lana to anyone who is hesitant like me to having their first surgery. She is absolutely wonderful!
Amazing physician. Diagnosed and solved multiple problems, went to bat with the insurance agency medical director for me, is incredibly compassionate, competent, and personable. The staff is awesome and the entire office experience is wonderful. Who knew medical help could be so warm and engaging?
Dr. Patitucci is a friendly upbeat doctor. She made me feel comfortable right away. She explained the procedure to me in simple terms that were easy to follow so that I knew exactly what was going to happen without question. The professionalism and care she provides is outstanding and I would recommend her to anyone!
I suffered from chronic sinusitis for years with no relief. Dr. Patitucci quickly and accurately diagnosed my deviated septum and gave me treatment options. Dr. Patitucci performed my surgery and 7 months later, I have no regrets. I have not had any sinus infections or sinus related pain. I had very little pain post surgery and credit it to Dr. Patitucci's amazing work. She has great professionalism, knowledge, and a comforting bedside manner. I would absolutely recommend her.

The administrative and other staff at Berger Henry ENT are kind and professional. I could not have asked for a better experience.
Dr. Patitucci gave me air! My septum was severely deviated, and I was not able to inhale anything through my right nostril. I am 5 months post surgery and can breath! It feels amazing. My daughter and father have also been treated by her. Highly recommended! Also, I have never been in a friendlier office- the staff are so polite and genuine.
With 25 years of ear cysts, including 3 surgeries as a child and teenager, I know a great ENT. Dr. Lana Patitucci is THE best ENT doc I have ever had the unfortunate need to frequent. I ended up in at Urgent Care on Black Friday and they directed me to the ER. After a less-than-pleasant experience in the ER ( where I found out I was allergic to morphine. . . ) I was sent home with antibiotics and Ibuprofen and 10 pills of Tylenol with Codeine for 10/10 pain. I was told to see an ENT as soon as possible. Leaving the ER at 7pm on Black Friday I knew I was in for a horrendous weekend and the odds of obtaining a same-day ENT appointment 3 days later was slim-to-none. Imagine my surprise when I made my first call on Monday morning and spoke with Aleah at BergerHenry. I didn't even need to plead my case to Aleah, although I did. She was able to fit me in with a same-day appointment with Dr. Patitucci. My husband and I arrived at the Chestnut Hill location and there wasn't another soul in the waiting room. When I approached the reception window, I was greeted by my angel, Aleah. If I could have reached through the window to give her a hug, I would have. Both Aleah and her colleague, Diana greeted my husband and I to the practice. The intake process was easy, as the intake paperwork is found on the BergerHenry website. My husband and I sat down and almost immediately were taken by James (who also welcomed us to the practice!) to the exam room. James was extremely pleasant and told us Dr. Patitucci would take care of me. Enter Dr. Patitucci and her smile lit up the room! She told me immediately that she knew who I was! She was the ENT on-call on Black Friday and knew about my case already. She was disappointed to see that my cyst had not been lanced. She offered me two options - 1) insert a small needle to remove the infection or 2) cut open the cyst and allow it to drain. After my husband left the room (he gets queasy!) we decided on option 1. I will not lie and say it was totally painless. Actually it was quite the opposite. The numbing medication did not burn, but it did feel like my cyst and entire ear was going to explode. After option 1 failed to work, we moved on to option 2. The cyst had to be cut and Dr. Patitucci knew the pain was incredible, but she was the best. She didn't tell me to stop yelling/screaming, but was extremely empathetic. After the numbing medication went to work, the remainder of the procedure was a 5/10 pain wise. A week and half later my pain is around a 3/10. Dr. Patitucci referred me to a surgeon who I will see at the beginning of January. She promised to send the surgeon complete notes of my case and I trust she will. The follow up appointment with Dr. Patitucci was at the East Norriton location and she was extremely happy with my progress. She made me promise to never go to the ER again. She said that I am now an established patient and would be able to see her whenever I needed in case of an emergency. I trust Dr. Patitucci and the entire BergerHenry team more than I have ever trusted another medical practice. If you have any ENT issue, call BergerHenry immediately. If you cannot get an appointment with Dr. Patitucci, I am sure all of the other doctors are just as competent, kind, and caring! Thanks for everything!
