Verified Patient Reviews
Great staff! Very friendly and professional. Dr. Fernandes was thorough and very pleasant.
The office accepted and confirmed my appointment, then everyone forgot to go to work that day and never followed up. I had a couple good experiences with the practice but those will not cover this massive annoyance.
I am searching for a dentist that is attentive and recommends what I need. Dental visits can be intimidating, the experience was comforting and informative. I would definitely return.
Deceptive billing. Overcharged me for services that they never did. They acknowleged this and had to fight them for months to get the money back. Would never ever go back there
The dentist was fine. No complaints. Didn't have any real work done so that's the only reason I can't know if I would 100% recommend. However, I would definitely recommend the practice over all. The desk staff is very helpful and the hygienist was *amazing. * I think having my teeth cleaned may be the highlight of my day. Genuinely enjoyable. <3
Terrible experience. My baby (the patient) is not even 2 years old, the dentist saw 3 patients before us without explanation, even though we arrived before 2 of them. Our appt was at 11, the dr saw my son close to 1 pm. And they charged as a emergency appt. I don't plan to go back
This was my first time visiting the dentist in years and I loved Dr. Fernandes' friendly and helpful staff. I will definitely be recommending this place to my friends and colleagues.
Office is truly accommodating and helpful. Great reminders. Truly a pleasure to get my care with Dr. Fernandes and her staff
Very friendly! The admin worked with me to make my visits as affordable as possible. The hygienist was lovely too!
Very pushy..wanting me to do many different treatment and surgery. The staff was very upset when I told her that I'm busy and can't schedule an appointment soon....felt she hung up on me, that was quite unprofessional.
They charged so much for x-rays!! I went for regular cleaning and check-up and my bill was more than a K. Never going back!
I saw another dentist, not Genevieve Fernandes. Not complaining though, the other dentist and the dental hygienist were amazing. Liylia, the hygienist, really took her time and used dental models to demonstrate various techniques. Of all the dental practices I have visited, this was the first time I ever encountered a professional who truly cares for the patient. This practice is extremely lucky to have Liylia.
Very unprofessional, I was left alone for over an hour, and I decided to leave.
I fractured a tooth and was seen on a Sunday which was great. The entire office staff was friendly and welcoming. They were upfront with the fees and have good payment options. Dr. Fernandez is down to earth and extremely warm. I will be bringing the rest of my family here.
She was so professional and thorough yet easy going and friendly, i felt that I was gettting the best possible care for my teeth.
Great service, caring staff, went for a consultation, but stayed to get a filling fixed because they made time for me.
I felt appreciated and they treated me awesome!
Great experience. Would highly recommend to others.
Dr. Fernandes was brisk, but the technicians who actually deal with the patients were caring and personable. Lack of coordination between the admin and the rest of staff means longer wait times, rushed consultations. Communication within team could be improved - was clear that there is tension there (which can happen at any office) but personally thought it was aired too publicly and had an overall negative effect on the patient experience.
Waited for over an hour, but then after I shared my frustration with them, a nice person tried to help me but there was really no excuse for that long wait. They then took 4 x rays before looking at my teeth and insisted I had nothing until the doctor looked in my mouth and saw that I do indeed have a cavity. They charged the insurance for 4 x rays (high amount) for no good reason, but at least I don't have to pay that... Doctor was nice but experience was very lacking as a whole. I will go again and give them another chance in case this was a one time thing as the nice person claimed and then change my review if it improves.
My visit this time was very short and simple just due to the nature of my issue so I cannot speak for how she does with more complex/longer procedures but for a first time visit it was fantastic and I will definitely be returning. I have a lot of dental problems and she was very understanding (rather than critical or condescending as some dentists I have been to previously have been) and able to help with the immediate issue I came in for. The rest of the staff was also very friendly and helpful even though my insurance situation was a little bit complicated.
Amazing experience! Daniel, the gentleman at check in made me feel so welcome as a new patient
Deceptive billing practices: I would not ever go to them again. No way.
Nice and professional staff. Cleaning was done well and efficiently.
It was very pleasant. They made me feel at home. I will be back there soon
best dentist that i have ever had
seemed dismissive and i had to go back 3 times to get my tooth fixed. Ultimately I went to another dentist.
Friendly staff and dentist.
I felt like I was being handled by salespeople and the feeling continued for a year following my appointment with emails, postcards, and phonecalls badgering me to come back in. NOT going back.
She tries to up sell you to teeth whitening and Invisalign. She is super nice professional and has good manual dexterity though...
The entire office was extremely nice, she also tries to work with you on what needs to be fixed with your teeth. Everyone remembers your name and area all extremely helpful.
I will be back and I will be recommending them to friends and family.
Nice offices on Central Park West, modern equipment and a very competent and communicative staff, highly recommended!
DDS Fernandes is a kind, compassionate and professional dentist. I will be reccommending her and her cohorts to anyone who asks for a dentist. Thanks for helping me regain my smile and self-confidence.
She was great
Love that they are open on Sundays!!!
Being that I am an elderly patient she is so patient, courteous and kind.
The people were fine, very nice and competent...but this place was so unorganized; 1st, I got a call a few days before my appointment confirming my appointment, but they had the wrong time; I had the email they sent confirming my time, but they denied that this was ever the time. Originally I had scheduled for 2 pm, they moved it to 1:30, no biggie. The day of, I called up to see if we could move the appointment earlier in the day, they told me it would not be a problem, and that I could come at 1 pm, so I did. At about 2 pm, I got seen by the doctor. The staff seemed to think I was in a rush...I was not, but I had been sitting around for an hour.
Deliberately misleading about pricing. Just awful.
Dr. Fernandes was very friendly and seemed helpful. The only minor problem I noticed was the fact that they charge you $125 even though you have insurance that they accept. Today I went in for my root canal and also noticed something which I did not like, the doctor who took care of me was great and did an excellent job with my root canal. When she was almost done she asked for the other doctor that was going to complete my crown to come in and do the second part today instead of having me go back. The staff said she had stepped out when the doctor asked for her to be called the assistant came back and said that I needed to come back. When I questioned the assistant she said that because I had "symptomatic sensitivity during the procedure which the doctor never said they were going to continue next week. I am not stupid or ignorant I knew exactly what happened and do not appreciate to be taken for being stupid. I will speaking to the office about this when I return next week.
OMG,she was a delight ,lovely and beautiful i would be going back again ,soon.
Very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. Professional office, electronic records & x-rays, and willing to accomodate a student's budget. Open on weekends.
Excellent. The receptionist explained everything very clearly step by step what was going to happen. And the Doctors were very friendly and asked as many questions to make me feel comfortable.
Great office, caring dentist and staff.
Dr. Fernandes and her staff were amazing! They took the time to talk to me about my dental care regimen, my cares and concerns. Dr. Fernandes and her hygienist are very easy to talk to, they listen attentively and offer great advice. I highly recommend this dental practice!
Professional, knew what she was doing, friendly, eased all my fears and apprehensions.
