Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Barsoum took me right away when I had an emergency and was really kind and comforting. I would definitely recommend her to others.
every one was super nice and very helpful.
I absolutely hate going to the dentist, but Caroline made me feel very comfortable. Both herself and the receptionist were really friendly and made sure to explain everything as they went along- including my insurance options, which was extremely helpful.
Quick and efficient, but I never felt rushed. They answered all my questions and were very thorough in the exam, providing insight into what they were seeing in terms that were easy to understand.
She was extremely helpful in explaining what the issues were and recommending me to the oral surgeon for my wisdom teeth removal. Very cheerful and made me feel extremely comfortable! If you have not been to the dentist in a while, she is your person!
Caroline made me feel at ease even though I normally don't like going to the dentist!
Very friendly. Didn't have to wait at all.
I was recommended to Caroline Barsoum and I am so glad I came to her. She was really gentle and personable. I felt like she was being honest with me and not trying to sell me on products which I have found with out dentists. Her office is small, clean and intimate. I would highly recommend.
Great visit! The office was clean and I was seen after a relatively short wait time - Dr. Barsoum still apologized for seeing me later than anticipated, which I appreciated. I was very satisfied with the way Dr. Barsoum cleaned my teeth and felt that she worked efficiently, but was also thorough and careful. Dr. Barsoum will be my new dentist in NYC.
She was very personable and explained everything in detail. She made it very comfortable and I usually don't do well during dental visits. I liked that she took her time and made sure she explained everything she was doing and then asked for feedback as well.
I recently went for a cleaning and general checkup and found Dr. Barsoum and her staff to be very professional, helpful, and thorough. She and her staff are also friendly and attentive and give honest and straightforward advice and opinions.
She took the time and patience to answers every question I had. I just found myself a new dentist! She is an excellent dentist. Made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure.
Great experience. Will definitely go back. Caroline is very friendly and professional.
Three main complaints: 1) Overcharges. Have called around and found that she's charging more than other NYC dentists in the area 2) End goal is to perform a procedure and get your money. She doesn't have your best interest at heart. 3) She treats her assistants like slaves - to the point that its uncomfortable to be around. She shames them in front of patients if they don't do exactly what she wants.
Great as always!
This was my second dentist in NYC and Caroline was perfect. Very nice and informative. My last dentist told me a cap/bonding procedure on a chipped tooth would be 100% covered/free under my insurance, only to find out that it wasn't and I owed $250 on the spot! I was furious with them so wanted to make sure I saw someone good this time. Most importantly, Caroline noticed that the bonding that my former dentist did was poorly finished. It was initially a small chip, so the bonding was smoothed and thinned out over the front of my front tooth, but over the next 2 years in between appointments, the bonding began to chip off and you could noticeably see and feel that the bonding had a ridge where it chipped. Caroline said he did not polish it correctly and had to fix his lack of attention to detail. She polished it in minutes (with no extra charge) and it now looks like it was never even there!!
Dr. Barsoum was extremely nice! She's very efficient, very clear, and the office is very pristine.
Doc is great
Dr. Barsoum and her staff are very friendly. Dr. Barsoum listened to me and addressed my concerns without trying to sell me extra treatments. She performed the cleaning her self and was very attentive to my level comfort. I finally found a dentist that I don't mind going back to. The office is cozy and clean. They are great at reminding you of all your appointments and the receptionist explained what was covered by my insurance and my out of pocket cost. The location of the office is perfect close to transportation.
Dr. Barsoum and her team are knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. I've already had two visits and from beginning to end the experience was pleasant. I was seen on time, the office is well kept, the best part receptionist gave me a print-out clearly stating my future co-pay amounts for every future visit. So no surprises, I love it! Dr. Barsoum's actual work?? Flawless! She is so skillful. I had a cavity in my front canine (so bad it almost needed a root canal) , the filling was so well done even when I show my tooth to people they cannot tell any work has been done. The quality of her work is that amazing. Very Happy
I had been recommended to Dr. Barsoum by several colleagues and am happy I was. Dr. Barsoum is a great blend of professional, friendly and did a thorough job of explaining what she was doing and what she recommends for healthier teeth. Nice offices and good music playing as well!
She was very attentive to my needs ( time frame and pain management) and explained everything in great detail.
Dr. Barsoum is fantastic. Very professional and efficient, but warm and friendly. Best dentist I've visited and will definitely be returning as an ongoing patient.
Dr. Barsoum was very professional and friendly. She talked with me for a while before doing a thorough exam. She did not push any unnecessary treatments that were for cosmetic purposes which I very much appreciated. She did the cleaning herself and it was very thorough. I didn't feel that the exam was rushed at all and she helped me find a solution to an issue I have been having for a while. I will definitely see her again.
I think it was the best dental experience I have ever had. Barsoum was thorough, informative, and put me at ease. Along with cleaning my teeth, she informed me about what she was doing and what I could do on my own to keep my teeth healthy. I already recommended her to my friend and I will definitely return there myself. The office itself was clean and bright, with good music and friendly staff. Even considering that it was a trip to the dentist overall it was a great experience.
I've been going to Dr. Barsoum for years. She's a fantastic dentist with a great bedside manner. The office is always very clean and the equipiment is constantly updated and honestly always seems new whenever I'm there. Highly recommended!
Dr. Barsoum was super friendly and made sure my time was not wasted. Excellent bedside manner and very natural. She was willing to address every need that I had to make me feel comfortable ( I had not been to the dentist in a very long time so was worried about cavities or worse..) Definitely recommend!
As someone who has had bad experiences at the dentist before and is somewhat picky, I had a pleasant experience here. Dr. Barsoum was friendly and talked me through everything she was doing. I was surprised how great she was in identifying all my previous dental work even though I was a new patient. The front desk was quick to check me in and was extremely helpful in breaking down my insurance coverage and such. My appointment was quick, but thorough and I look forward to my next one.
It was outstanding! I highly recommend Dr. Barsoum!
Absolutely amazing. I only have great things to say about my time with Dr. Barsoum - I had an emergency and Dr. Barsoum fit me in first thing in the morning, and when she wanted a second opinion on the tooth / thought it might need a root canal, she got me scheduled at another dentist's office for hours later even though his secretary first claimed their first opening was weeks away. When it was finally decided that my tooth wasn't salvageable, she said me up with Dr. Cafarello (also absolutely incredible) for a same day implant surgery the next morning at 9:00a. For such a challenging situation, they made it seamless and painless (literally and figuratively).
I came a little late but they saw me right on time! Dr. Barsoum was excellent and the proximity of this location to my apartment makes me want to go to the dentist every week! I love getting my teeth cleaned :)
Great! Very thorough and nice dentist and staff.
Dr. Barsoum has cured my avoidance of dentistry. Positive, caring and engaged, my visit went smoothly. Procedures, diagnosis and care plan were clearly explained. I felt my concerns and needs were met expertly. Highly recommend.
First off: most informative and welcoming receptionist. Not only did she welcome me by name, but she also broke down my insurance and what was covered without me even asking. She was so informative and helpful and I didn't leave with a pit in my stomach like I sometimes do at a doctor's visit just waiting for an epic bill to arrive. Probably the best experience I've ever had with any receptionist at any doctors visit ever. Dr. Barsoum was also really great. She took the time to look over my chart, ask me vital questions and actually made me feel like she heard what I was saying. She even addressed specifics that I had mentioned on my chart during my cleaning. She was so sweet, thorough and professional. By far my favorite dentist I've had in the past 10 years. I HIGHLY recommend booking an appointment with her.
Great experience, and I don't think I've ever said that about a dentist appointment. Helps that I didn't have any cavities. :)
i love her! amazing!
Dr. Barsoum and her staff are so lovely and professional it almost makes me want to chip a tooth on a beer cap or change my diet to soda and fun dip just so I have an excuse to see them again. That being said, as someone who enjoys going to the dentist to begin with- they surpassed all expectations from former experiences at the dentist and I was in and out in less than 30 minutes for an X-Rays and a cleaning. Their office is in an adorable building down in the West Village around the corner from the West 4th ave subway. I think that the only complaint I have is that the bathroom was small, but that's not why you're going there. She and her staff have a great sense of humor too! And major points that she isn't going for a full on conversation with you when in the middle of the procedure because you can't respond and if you did, you'd just garble, or choke.
I hate the dentist and haven't been in years. She made the visit nearly enjoyable.
Great! Dr. Barsoum was extremely friendly and I felt super comfortable in her office. The appointment was super quick and efficient. i already scheduled my next appointment.
I am no longer afraid of going to the dentist thanks to Dr. Barsoum. She was clear, explained every step of the visit and follow-up.
The appointment was great, quick and easy.
Easily the best dentist appointment I've ever had! I was seen right away, and Dr. Caroline Barsoum was amazing.
Perfectly located by my office, I was in and out for Xrays and cleaning under an hour. Plus she even administers Invisalign, which I now will get. ;)
My first visit with Dr. Barsoum for a cleaning and checkup was wonderful. She clearly explained everything to me, was personable and enjoyable to talk with, and demonstrated extreme skill and knowledge. High recommend!
Both Caroline and her hygienists are awesome!
Can not say better things about my visit with Caroline Barsoum today!! She offered a bunch of helpful advice, and since I hadn't had a teeth cleaning in awhile I was worried she was going to shame me (as many dentists do.) However, she immediately put my fears of having a million cavities to rest and it was the least painful teeth cleaning I've ever had. Literally can't wait to go back in six months!
Dr Barsoum is great! Staff was really great and she's really helpful in giving non-judgemental advice. It was a pleasure seeing an office work this well and I'll actually be looking forward to getting a newly found cavity taken care of (not really, but they are great).
The absolute BEST dentist in the entire world. From the second i walked through the door, the entire staff was warm, welcoming, and kind. The office is extremely clean and nice, with up to date equipment. Dr. Barsoum came into the room and i felt like i was talking to a friend, not my Dentist. She is gentle, nice, and truly cares about her patients. DO not go anywhere else!
Best dentist visit I've ever had! Everyone was really kind and the entire experience was as much of a breeze as getting your teeth cleaned can possibly be. If you're avoiding going to the dentist right now, just make an appointment with Dr Barsoum.
Great as usual! Wonderful dentist, fast and easy!
Fantastic. I was blown away how easy this was as a new patient.
She's the best! I always enjoy my visits. Never stressful. Very relaxed. Great team working there.
Best experience with a dentist I've ever had.
Amazing! Love Dr. Barsoum. She is friendly, a great communicator and my visit was 100% pain-free. HIGHLY recommend.
Really professional and smooth
She was very nice and professional
Everything was perfect. Dr. Barsoum was kind, friendly, relaxing, and informative; everything you could want from a dentist.
Everyone was professional and the office is nice, modern, and in a accessible area. Caroline is very pleasant and helpful.
Kind. Patient. Thorough. Efficient. I highly recommend!
I can't say enough amazing words about Dr.Barsoum. I have an irrational fear of dentists and have had some very bad experiences in my past. After reading the reviews on ZocDoc, I reluctantly made an appointment to see Dr.Barsoum. She was beyond amazing. She truly cares about you as a patient. She really listens to you and is just plain amazing. If you are looking for a dentist in the city you will not regret going to see Dr.Barsoum. Hands down the best dentist ever.
Great, I walked in, she saw what the problem was and resolved it. Very smooth.
It was about as pleasant as a dentist visit could be. I think the only thing that frustrated me was the large number of X-rays (about a dozen) they took of my mouth. At my old dentist, it was only two.
Very professional and friendly!
Extremely professional yet caring. Welcoming environment and staff. Much more considerate about the patient experience than other practices.
SUCH a wonderful doctor! Really took the time to listen to all my wants, concerns, and even my medical history. I felt comfortable with her right from the get-go. Dr. Barsoum was also very happy to make suggestions, based on what I was hoping to achieve, and seemed very eager to work with me, in whatever way possible, in order to help get the outcome I so desired. I will be sure to recommend her to all my friends!
Great experience with Dr. Barsoum! I recommend her.
She was great, I really like her and I'm going back for a follow up
It was a lovely, clean office. A bit of a wait, but my appointment was the last of the day, so that happens.
Dr. Barsoum & her staff were excellent. They did a great job with my cleaning and I really appreciated how clearly she explained everything regarding my teeth / upcoming filling. Very trustworthy & nice staff. Highly recommend!
Dr. Barsoum and her staff made me feel comfortable and at ease the entire time, especially considering I hadn't been to the dentist in 10 years. The facility was super clean, and beautiful.
She is the best, hands-down!
She was awesome. Quick. Professional. And personal.
Amazing Doc!! Attentive and truly cares about her patients. Awesome staff across the board!
Out of all the dentists I've visited, Dr Barsoum is my favorite and actually the first dentist I haven't been nervous to visit. She's attentive, gentle, and calm. If you're nervous to have your teeth worked on, she'll work with you through the treatment to make you as comfortable as possible.
Dr. Barsoum was very thorough and patient, would definitely recommend her!
I thought she was very professional and approachable. I told her about my previous experience with a very rude and unscrupulous office, and she verified that the expensive procedures they were pressuring me into were unnecessary. She confirmed my doubts. She is kind, professional, and most importantly HONEST and will not push you to do unnecessary treatments just so the practice can bill your insurance company. I recommend you go with Dr. Barsoum!
Caroline Barsoum totally rocks and I will recommend her to everyone I know.
I arrived about 5 mins before my scheduled appointment. The front desk received me right away, and soon I was in the chair having x-rays done. 16 different x-rays taken, went by very quickly thanks to wireless, digital x-ray 'film'. Then Dr. Barsoum inspected my teeth, and advised me of different issues I had, and possible solutions. She then cleaned and polished my teeth, and even removed some excess cement that had been left there for years from previous dental work I had. Overall a very positive, painless experience, would recommend to anyone.
The best dentist I have ever had the opportunity to be seen by, bar none. Hi tech, well versed, and feather like touch with the drill, if it even was a drill. Support staff exactly that, supportive, warm, and friendly. I recommended her to an associate within 2 hours of having been seen by her.
Dr. Barsoum and her team are great. Would recommend to anyone for sure.
Amazing experience! Everyone was super friendly, no wait time, very efficient and great quality service! Highly recommend, can't wait to go back!
Very professional and friendly
Very nice dentist. I got the sense that she was concerned with my care (other dentists in the city seem way more concerned with how much they can bill me). Staff was really pleasant too. I'll be back.
This is my second time at Dr. Barsoum's office, and I cannot speak more highly of her! No wait, beautiful office, wonderful staff--all around a great experience. Dr. Barsoum is extremely knowledgeable and up-to-date on the best in modern dental care. She is very friendly and you can tell that she genuinely cares for her patients!
Dr Barsoum was fantastic at outlying some options for a cosmetic procedure. She actually recommended the less-expensive option and I loved that she went over the reasons instead of trying to up-sell like my last dentist. She really cared about what my goals were and offered a great solution.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this dentist - the whole office staff was so friendly and so helpful. The receptionist, Jackie went above and beyond to make sure that my insurance would cover my visit and to make clear any charges that might incur. Dr. Barsoum is very approachable and really took her time to talk to me about what she was planning on doing, my results and options. Their newly renovated office is gorgeous, very modern and clean. I have bounced around between dentists for years and am SO excited to find one who I will stick with for years to come.
I loved Dr. Barsoum! I've had really bad luck with dentists in the past. My teeth don't bother me but they are definitely not perfect, and every other dentist I've been to has laid on the horror stories and badgered me into getting back into braces or spend absurd amounts of money on other ways to "fix" my teeth. Even though I don't have any physical problems with them (my bite is off - really not that big of a deal!). Anyway, Dr. Barsoum was very nice and understanding and put things into a clearer perspective for me. I feel much more comfortable with my mouth. Not to forget of course that she did a great job cleaning my teeth! I will definitely be back again. Thanks!
Great overall experience: non-existent wait time, friendly staff, helped put me at ease, very personable. Highly recommended!
I came early and although there was a little hiccup in getting xrays/paperwork from my other doctors, everything went really smoothly! In and out quickly and Dr. Barsoum was lovely! Established care, got my cleaning and in/out in 30 minutes! Location & office were great!
Dr. Barsoum and her staff were warm, friendly, and professional. Didn't have to wait at all to be seen.
Dr. Barsoum is awesome. She was super friendly and approachable, but also professional and clearly knew her stuff. I hadn't been to the dentist in a few years, and she was very understanding of my anxiety about the appointment. She also took the time to explain everything to me and my fillings were quick and painless. I'd recommend her to pretty much anybody.
Friendly, courteous, and professional.
Dr Barsoum was everything you would want in a Dentist, friendly, informative and very careful during the procedure. I would highly recommend her
highly recommended. She's professional and clear about what she's doing.
She was great! Very thorough and helped make sure I was confortable the whole time.
I had a great experience with Dr. Barsoum. One of the best experiences I've had at the dentist. She is very professional and personable. The whole staff is amazing. Couldn't find a better practice =)
Great experience--she was very thorough, friendly and addressed concerns.
Fantastic office. Everyone was professional, friendly, and kind. It was the best dentist visit I've ever had!
Prior to Dr. Barsoum I was always skittish about going to the dentist. However, Dr. Barsoum has a way of making you feel perfectly at ease. Dr. Barsoum has performed a few necessary procedures this past year and I couldn't imagine going to another dentist.
her and the staff are wonderful!
In a word - superb! She and the PA Christina were extremely nice and accommodating. I had the first appointment of the day so I was taken care of immediately, they put on a Pandora station of my choice, and Dr. Barsoum did the entire cleaning herself. Almost every dental cleaning I've gone to, they made my gums bleed, were abrasive, and I was in pain/sore for the next day or two. Not one of these happened on my visit - she was thorough, gentle, and did a phenomenal job cleaning my teeth. I would 100% recommend her, and the office is very clean as well (just by NYU in a brownstone). A++
Caroline was amazing!!!
Beautiful office, super nice and accommodating staff. Dr. Barsoum sat with me and just discussed everything for a little while before turning over to the assistant for x-rays. She remembered everything we talked about and I never felt like she was rushing.
She was so nice! Really gentle and filled a cavity with no pain and recommended a great oral surgeon to have my wisdom teeth removed
She was amazing! The office was newly redone so I noticed how modern and well decorated the interior was immediately. It's in a great location too (right near NYU) and easy to get to. She was incredibly easy to talk to, very knowledgeable without being intimidated and I certainly didn't feel rushed or like I was "just another appointment." I'm going to recommend her to everyone!
Super cool, professional, nice, explained everything to me. Plus she played some really good music, which helps when you're getting your teeth cleaned. :) Would definitely recommend!
Very happy with this visit. I recently moved to NY and needed a checkup and cleaning. Dr Barsoum was kind, thorough, and had a gentle touch. Nice office& attentive staff. I'm glad I found my new dentist and will be definitely be returning to her for a few aesthetic issues.
Dr. Barsoum was excellent and I look forward to working with her.
This is going to sound like a paid advertisement written by a dumb guy, but Dr. Barsoum was literally awesome. A very stressful, multi-visit procedure was made far less stressful by her professionalism, good spirits, precision, and chair-side manner.
Very nice and knowledgeable. Really wants to help!
Great, beautiful office, modern supplies, GO!
Super friendly assistance. Explains everything thoroughly so that you aren't lost in the really comfy chair. Saw an improvement right away and can't wait to continue treatment
She does the cleaning herself for new patients, saying she learns more that way. She also found 2 cavities my previous dentist had missed because she uses digital x-rays which have higher resolution. Highly recommended.
Great dentist, does the cleanings herself and offers good advice.
Excellent as always!
This appt was a breeze! Very clean place, Check-in was quick, the doctor was informative and helpful. Going to the dentist isn't the most fun thing to do, but the time passed quickly. She was gentle and communicated everything she was doing. I am going back for another consult for a mouth 'tune-up' that I know is overdue.
My visit was great--Dr. Barsoum was very attentive, knowledgeable, and explained everything to me thoroughly. The office is very convenient, clean, and I did not have to wait at all. Would definitely recommend this dentist and will be returning.
The dentist performed the cleaning herself (as opposed to an assistant), which is unusual and nice. Very communicative. Didn't push any unnecessary services (which is why I left my prior dentist). Zero wait time. As pleasant a dentist experience as I've ever had.
Very nice dentist & beautiful too.
Dr. Barsoum was very friendly and informative, and made me feel at ease throughout the appointment. I highly recommend her!
Occasional pricing discrepancies, but I loved being in the office (which is unusual for my time at the dentist...)
Kind, funny, and comforting. She saw my issues and fixed them immediately. Great music, clean office, and a wonderful staff. Will be returning for my 6 month check up!
First time patient of her's. Had an early 8:30am appt, but she and her asst. were attentive and treated me great. Not a lot of paperwork, small and comfortable office, very efficient. She does the examination and cleaning herself, while explaining the processes. Uses some very new and high-tech equip (none that I've seen), like a high-pressue water pen to clean teeth, that is far more comfortable than a metal scraping hook. Wonderful dentist.
Was great, Caroline is a fantastic and down to earth.
Fabulous! Young, nice, warm, and very professional/knowledgeable staff.
She was wonderful! As a first time patient, she sat down with me and got to know me, my history and what I was looking for in this visit. From what I can tell, the office is newly renovated, super clean, and in a perfect location. I couldn't get over how helpful and sweet Jackie at the front desk was to me! I loved it and I feel so happy now that I have found my official dentist!
I am scared of the dentist, and had not been in over a year so, I was terrified when I got there, but everything about the experience served to reassure me. I left feeling positive about how to go forward and what the long-term effects will be.
I booked Dr. Barsoum through ZocDoc with no idea what to expect, but I found a great dentist that I've decided to keep as my primary dentist. I also had a number of challenging adult orthodontic issues, and she was able to refer me to a really great orthodontist. I would highly recommend her practice.
Fantastic group of professionals, with a great vibe and very modern facilities. What more can a patient ask for, book at once!
She was amazing. I had to stop seeing her because I moved out of state. Otherwise, I would have been a patient for life.
Dr. Barsoum is a thoughtful, well-spoken, and thorough dentist. Great staff. Very friendly doctor and friendly people, and very professional in terms of making sure insurance was all squared away. They have a well-equipped suite with a normal level of technology and good computer software.
She made me feel right at home. She is a real person who genuinely cares about her patients. The office is in a great location and the decor was quite calming (always good for a dentist) :)
A wonderful experience at the dentist (sounds crazy, right?!?). Super friendly staff, amazingly clean, modern office, and very thorough cleaning. I'll never look for another dentist again!
Dr. Barsoum is great. Will definitely see her again. She's personable, a good listener, thorough, and honest. Her office is really nice, too!
As far as visits to the dentists go, this one was amazing. Dr. Barsoum and staff were extremely polite and walked through everything they were going to do. Aside from filling out some paperwork, there was no wait time. Looking forward to my next visit and will definitely be referring friends to see Dr. Barsoum.
