Tarrytown, NY – January 28, 2019 - ENT and Allergy Associates, LLP (ENTA) has demonstrated its commitment to the deserving patients of Orange County, having recently renovated and expanded its Middletown Clinical office.

Dr. Petcu was born in Chicago, Illinois and grew up in suburban Philadelphia. With interests in both science and economics, he attended the University of Pennsylvania and the Wharton School where he graduated with degrees in Biology, Chemistry, and Business. After obtaining an MS in Biochemistry from Temple University, he enrolled in the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine for his M.D. degree. His internship in Surgery and residency in Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery were done at Yale University School of Medicine and Yale-New Haven Hospital. In his final year of training, he was named Chief Resident and later became a Clinical Instructor at both Yale University and Tufts University Schools of Medicine, instructing medical students, PAs, ENT residents, and maxillofacial surgery residents.
Continuing to strive to offer his patients the most advanced and minimally invasive methods, he trained in otolaryngic allergy, advanced sinus surgery techniques (in office and operating rooms), head and neck cancer (open and endoscopic) surgery, Drug-Induced Sleep Endoscopy (DISE), virtual endoscopy, and Trans-Oral Robotic Surgery (TORS) using the daVinci Surgical System (for both cancer and sleep apnea surgery). He was among the first 100 ENTs in the US trained in TORS. Most recently he was trained in the newest Eustachian tube balloon dilation system.
Placing an absolute priority on quality of patient care, Dr. Petcu has been interim chief of the ENT department at his previous hospital and a member of three quality control committees. He has been named one of Castle Connelly’s Best ENTs in America for 4 years running and has been awarded several patient satisfaction awards. Dr. Petcu is a board-certified Otolaryngologist-Head & Neck Surgeon and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS).
