Wow! I was so impressed by my visit, my first, to Dr. Oh. First, calling the office is a pleasure. The desk assistant, Connie, is extremely pleasant to deal with on the phone and very efficient. And she was just as nice in person when I arrived at the office (which is a very nicely appointed one just above the Calvin Klein store on Madison Avenue). The reason I had gone to Dr. Oh -- having got good recommendations on ZocDoc and Yelp -- was because my current dentist had told me I had to have a crown that would cost almost $3,000. This dentist (who shall remain unnamed) is not in my insurance's network and they said they could only reimburse me about $900 of the cost. I was also a bit suspicious that a crown was a somewhat radical move and so decided to get a second opinion. I also thought that if the work was indeed needed that it would be better (and cheaper!) to have it done in-network. (To be fair to this dentist, who I had used for almost 20 years, he had not seen reason to do lots of procedures over these years, apart from another crown, which did seem necessary.) After my pleasant dealings with Connie (filling out the usual first-time forms and so forth), I was escorted into the extremely well-equipped and spic-and-span surgery by Dr. Oh's assistant, Wendy. She made some very nice conversation and asked me a couple of health questions before bringing Dr. Oh in. Dr. Oh is very low-key, almost to the point of being diffident, but obviously very serious about what she is doing. She is also very gentle, which is great (I have had head- and jaw-tugging dentists and hygenists before). She asked me some medical-history questions and then proceeded to examine my teeth. She also had Wendy do an x-ray of the teeth in question (done with the latest digital equipment). And the outcome? She thought a crown was unnecessary. "I don't like to take teeth out unless we absolutely need to," she said. That was, of course, a big relief, both financially (I wouldn't have to pay big bucks [plus the insurance company saved as well]) and in pain and time terms. And even if she had said it was necessary, I would still have gone back to Dr. Oh. I was most impressed by her and the whole operation. Of course, she could be wrong (though I very much doubt it), in which case I will write again. But for now, I give Dr. Oh a very big thumbs-up. She has a new patient.
