learn more about dr menger

I am proud to continue as the third generation of my family to provide care to the Queens-Long Island community.  I have been practicing in the area for 30 years and have dedicated my professional life to serving my patients with the most up to date high quality care.  My training at Manhattan Eye Ear and Throat Hospital was world class, but has continued far beyond that with constant interaction and learning from my peers and active participation in national meetings.



Dr Peter Menger recently joined the Zeiss Surgical sponsored mission trip to Panama City, Panama. He and Dr Ed Hu, from Iowa City, Iowa, operated on local residents in this severely medically underserved area. The Mission was successful teaming with a cohort of local surgeons performing more than 100 operations.  Dr. Menger noted that we in the US take for granted that we all have access to modern medical systems that are severely lacking outside our borders.
