Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Shirazy saw me right at my appointment time and gave me a very straightforward and helpful recommendation. HIghly recommended!
I had a lovely visit to Dr. Shirazy. I was in and out quickly and had no issues.
Had a dental cleaning appointment. I did X-ray 8 months ago but Dr Shirazy insisted to have me do it again at her office. Her assistant, who is a nice lady, did it but the picture is not clear because of some sensor issues. They reboot the system and did it one more time and again no clear pic populated. I ended up having two X-ray exams without any clear pictures. Dr Shirazy started to clean my teeth and the cleaning last around 10min... Wouldn't recommend dental cleaning here.
Very kind and very thorough!
Sometimes people are afraid of going to the dentist because of pain or because they feel like they will be lectured, but Dr. Shirazy and her team put you at ease and are the least judgmental health professionals I've ever encountered.
Best in the biz.
At first I was told that they did not receive my appointment request, however, they checked further and my appointment was there. So my first impression I was confused. However, after they found I had an appointment every ran smoothly. I love that Dr. Shirazy actually do the cleaning. I had a full mouth deep cleaning and it was wonderful. I love that they explain everything that needs to be done. In the end it was a wonderful visit.
My only compliant that it was a little pricey (my insurance only covered a portion of the full visit).
She's kind, smart and collaborates with you on your dental health. I can't recommend her enough.
Both Dr. Shirazy and her assistant Stephanie are extremely welcoming and professional. Very nice office and great care.
Really nice office with a small staff. No waiting time and everyone was very friendly. Dr. Shirazy herself did the cleaning, which I liked, since it's often done by a dental technician in other dentist's offices. I discovered her on zocdoc and have been going here regularly for about a year.
Easy to schedule and all forms were available on the site. Was seen within two minutes of my arrival and was out the door with a new filling in under 20 mins. Great experience
Very friendly and professional staff. No wait time. Excellent experience.
The best dentist I've ever had! Everyone on staff is extremely kind and professional, and I've never had to wait more than 2 minutes to be seen. Dr. Shirazy has always offered same day fillings/work after my cleanings, which is really convenient AND the office is super chic! It's really refreshing to see a medical practice full of professional women providing excellent care in a city brimming with competition... Highly recommend!
She is awesome, professional, attentive, and pleasant!
Dr. Shirazy continues to make my dental visits easy and as comfortable as possible. Everyone in the office is friendly and keeps me in the know. Thanks again for a successful appointment.
Everyone there is professional and personable, and Dr. Shirazy's skill is best-in-class.
I do not really like to give negative feedback. But I must say that I visited 4 times: 1 cleaning, 2 filling and 1 pain. And only cleaning was ok. Filling: the doctor was in hurry to make all three filling for one time slot while I suggested to do them one-by-one. She did not wait to anesthesia to work, did not adjust properly the filling. So as the result I felt pain for 1 month after and had to come once again to adjust fillings. I am still cannot eat with 2 of these teeth properly, still have sensitivity there while before filling I did not. at the that time she checked (actually cracked filling) of the 4th tooth. In a month I got increasing sensitivity, then pain and horrible pain at night time with pulsing of half of my mouth close to newly cracked teeth. Even my gums were in pain, then I appointed Pain visit. Pain: I was not really sure what was wrong. Gums hirted most of all. She checked gums, said it was ok and prescribed alcohol free moth wash. NO ex-ray, No checking teeth by tapping the filling or teeth. In two days I got EMERGENCY with pulpitis dying nerve. I will never recommend this doctor again.
Dr. Shirazy is always very friendly and professional. She works efficiently but is very thorough in her work. Her support staff are also kind and knowledgeable as well!
I was extremely nervous for my appointment, but Dr. Shirazy and everyone else in the office made me feel comfortable and at ease. She talked me through the procedure and that was incredibly helpful.
She made me feel very welcomed. Started my cavity filling immediately and did a great job.
The entire staff was accommodating and made feel very comfortable.
Wasted my time. They show up on ZocDoc as an orthodontist, but they aren't an orthodontist. I spent 1 hour of my day because of their mistake. Please update your service categories, to save customers wasting their time.
Super professional and friendly. Ace of a dentist.
I was impressed with the state-of-the-art technology they used and how knowledgable and sure the doctor (and her assistants) seemed. My teeth cleaning procedure was fast but not rushed. And they put together a treatment plan going forward to handle my old fillings that need to be replaced. Looking forward to working with them to get my teeth in top shape.
Went in for a consultation and cleaning. Service was good. Will be returning for some work to be done.
Christine is very helpful with billing and insurance topics. The people in her office are professional and responsive via phone. Dr. Shirazy sometimes seems rushed when talking to patients, but if you ask questions she provides helpful answers. The wait time to see her is very good compared to other doctors, so if that is the trade off for staying on schedule, it is worth it. She meets her patients promptly and listens to them.
Thank you for your help
The Dr, was appropriate, knowledgeable, and warm. She was direct in her diagnosis and treatment without being shameful. I am impressed and have not stopped singing her praises or those of her incredible staff.
I came to see Dr. Shirazy because I saw she was highly recommended. She did not disappoint.
Great atmosphere. Everyone was very welcoming and completely not mad at me when I said I had skipped 2 years of cleanings ??
This was my first time at this practice and I loved my experience. Dr. Shirazy was excellent and I felt at ease. When I left, I was given a treatment plan, which was very helpful. This was the first time that I felt like I was given a thorough dental check-up and I will definitely be going back.
My appointment with Dr.Shirazy was great. She is very thorough and personable. I will definitely be returning.
This was my second office visit to Dr Shirazy DMD. The first thing you notice when you step into the office waiting area is how clean and organized it is and how friendly, Christine, the receptionist is. I was a patient at previous practice here in the city which was always chaotic, dirty and non personal so this is a treat! Dr Shirazy DMD has a great personality. She is smart, quick, very thorough and an has a way of making me feel like I'm in the best hands possible. At the end of my visit I was presented with a very clear treatment plan which I am looking forward to fulfilling unlike my previous experiences at my former dentists office. My teeth feel INCREDIBLE! There was no pain or discomfort during my cleaning and the X Rays I had taken by the intern turned out to be quick as well.
My visit was great, she's fast and very professional. On point with everything.
Very friendly, very competent!!
Love her! Best dentist in the world!
Very nice and intelligent. Glad I have found a good local dentist.
Dr. Shirazy is very professional and personable. The visit was quick with no waiting time, and her staff is pleasant. Highly recommend, she is our new family dentist.
She was extremely polite and patient. She was very thorough and took time to make sure you were in any pain. I appreciate her directness.
Kind with a gentle touch...fantastic bedside manner for someone with a bit of a phobia. Walked me through what was going to happen and then did it quickly and with as little pain as possible.
Dr. Hamida Shirazy was very pleasant and knowledgeable with my dental issues. Dr. Shirazy gave me great advice on how to properly care for my teeth and she went over the treatment plans and cost step by step. Dr. Shirazy is very detailed and she also offers additional information in regards to dental payment resolutions. I had a warm and heartfelt visit. I highly recommend Hamida Shirazy as your next Dentist.
I had a broken crown and Dr. Shirazy got me right in first thing Monday morning and fixed it up. Great service and care. Highly recommend.
Dr. Shirazy is great! Her office is very modern and all the staff was kind. She explained everything to me in full detail and was very thorough in cleaning my teeth. I shall definitely be back.
Dr. Shirazy and her team are polite, efficient and fast! My wait time was barely a minute for the waiting room, dental hygienist or the Dr. herself. She explained everything in a way that was easy to understand and answered all my questions and concerns; and not to mention I felt like a new person leaving after my very thorough cleaning!
Dr Shirazy was very thorough and professional...but, I'd already heard that! As I was recommended by my mother who already sees Dr S.
I grew up in Western Europe but live in the US for ten years now. I After some very bad experiences with US dentists I tried to go to the dentist only when I was in Europe (it happened to me two times in the beginning that US dentists wanted to talk me into very expensive treatments which were completely unnecessary according to my European dentist with whom I checked when I was home). Dr. Shirazy is the first US-educated dentist I have seen whom I trust. She is very polite and seems to be extremely competent, ethical and not greedy at all. Her fillings are very well made.
The first thing I would like to say is I have severe anxiety for anything medical related but this was one of the best visits I've ever had. First, I was seen almost immediately, the shortest wait time I've ever had (not even 5 minutes). Second, Dr. Shirazy and every member of her staff were super nice, patient with my anxiousness, very understanding of my concerns, and nonjudgmental. They explained things in a way that was easy to understand without scaring me. I've had dental visits before that have left me in a panic, but this was a really nice experience.
Dr Shirazy is fantastic! I cannot recommend her to others strongly enough.
Dr Shirazy and her staff are great. Always on time, very professional, and great service/results.
Friendly provider and staff. Very updated with digital x-ray, on-line apointment.
Dr. Shirazy is wonderful! She has appointments on the weekend and always gets me in and out while still being thorough.
My first time visiting this denist office and I was very impressed with everyone working there! I feel that I am in great hands for the dental services needed! Very professional all around!
Very warm and welcoming office.
Everyone was kind, inviting and thorough. Dr. Shirazy and her team were wonderful!
Amazing as usual!
Staff is very nice, Dr. Shirazy is very nice. All recommended procedures were explained well, and the prices were discussed well in advance. Great dental office.
I had an excellent appointment. I was seen right away and was able to get a cavity filled in the same appointment. The receptionist was delightful.
I had requested follow-up information be emailed to me and still have yet to receive it. Additionally, the doctor seemed unfamiliar with my chart and didn't know what I was talking about when I referenced an issue we had discussed at my previous visit. Her advice about this issue was contradictory to what she told me at the last visit. I'm also not sure if I was interrupting her lunch, but it kind of smelled like food, which seemed weird to me for a dentist.
I thought Dr. Shirazy was very thorough and knowledgeable. She took the time to answer each of my questions. I was confident that she took every step to provide a thorough assessment.
Dr. Shirazy has such an amazing warmth in her energy, she is incredibly professional yet sincere in her understanding of your needs. Everything went smoothly during my first appointment, was told directly of the procedures I would need and what I should expect to pay. Jennifer, Dr. Shirazy's office manager is also had a friendly a caring demeanor. Im grateful to have found them while searching for a dentist. I love them already. :-)
I enjoyed Doctor Shirazy and her staff. Everyone was warm and friendly plus knowledgeable in their fields. I highly recommend Dr. Shirazy's practice to anyone in the tri-state area, especially Philadelphians.
They were very nice and did a great job cleaning!
This was the best dentist experience of my entire life. All he ladies are extremely polite and have wonderful senses of humor including Dr. Shirazy. One visit and I'm already eager to call this office my new home. And they're all easy on the eyes if I say so myself. Thank you SO much for helping me!
I am terrified of the dentist and this is the first time in my life it wasn't so scary and painful!
Super nice easy to talk with and is knowledgable I'd go back :)
It was great. Very professional, very nice.
Dr Shirazy was very thorough, friendly and professional. I will be going back to her!
I didn't have to wait for anything. The people there are so nice. Well spoken and polite. I can not wait for my next visit.
I had a wonderful visit with Dr. Shirazy. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Not only was she great but her dental hygienist and receptionist were great as well!
I had a very good visit with doctor Shirazy. She was very nice and explained everything that was going on and she also answered every question i had very well. all the stafade me feel safe and calm being their i am not a fan of the dentist and its been like that for as long as i can
loved her! her and her staff is so friendly and very efficient!
From the receptionist to the technician I have never been more pleased with a dental appointment. I highly recommend this practice.
Friendly, straightforward about options
I was so impressed with the level of care and consideration. Go to Dr. Shirazy for your dentist!!
She was very nice and gentle. the receptionist was polite and kind. She even treated my daughter with kindness. The place was clean.
Dr Shirazy was friendly, thorough, and professional. I'd highly recommend her and her friendly office staff.
Dr. Shirazy (and her Dental Assistant Stephanie) were both wonderful. Not only did she identify my issue and perform the necessary medical procedure, but also she waited patiently as I worked through an insurance issue (and even helped me resolve it!)
Dr. Shirazy is wonderful - warm and friendly, thoughtful and professional. Her staff is delightful, always helpful and they work as a nice cohesive unit.
Very good manner, and she took time to explain treatments and care, explained why each treatment was necessary but did not place any pressure to get those that I wanted to delay.
Prompt service, easy first visit and was able to fill out patient info on their iPad in under 5 minutes. Definitely recommend!
Dr Shirazy was very nice and personable. She explained everything in details and made me feel comfortable. The staff was very attentive!
Skilled but also great service. Also amazingly kinda and caring. Took time to talk through options, cost, recovery times, and if I was happy with results. Took extra time at the end to ensure I was comfortable.
I needed an appointment right away and was able to get one the next day, and it was Columbus Day! First-time patient information was done easily using an IPad in 5-minutes time, and was seen right away. Very conveniently located in Center-City. The nurses, insurance clerk, and Dr. Shirazy were all very nice and seemed to have a very down to earth, modern attitude about things, and while I was being worked on they were being funny so I was distracted from the hands in my mouth haha! It was only my first time but I'm definitely going back! Oh and what a great view!
Great! She was very nice and helpful.
Such a delight!
I've never had a more pleasurable dentist visit! It was quick yet thorough and Dr. Shirazy was super friendly and comforting! Would definitely recommend her!
Excellent! The doctor did my x-rays and cleaning. I think because her assistant was not in but she had no problems doing them. She was warm and told me what she was doing before she did it. Made she I was not in any discomfort. Excellent visit! Highly recommend her. The receptionist was wonderful also. They both answered all my questions and I understood all aspects of the visit. Great job ladies! Thank you!
Everything was great!
Great as usual. Quick, efficient, and painless.
Very friendly, intelligent can run the office on her own, just a great personality.
Dr. Shirazy was professional and pleasant. The dentist is not my favorite place. She put me at ease and I will be returning.
Dr. Shirazy was very knowledgable and professional!
She was delightful! I had an issue with a tooth but I felt she took the cautious approach instead of insisting on some expensive procedure. I really appreciated that. I'm new here so I took my chances on a dentist but I think I made a very good choice with Rittenhouse Dentists!
This was my first visit to Rittenhouse Dentist, and I was very happy with my experience - I will for sure be coming back. I was given a price estimate before my procedure which I appreciated. Also, everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you!
Always courteous and professional. Makes a dentist appointment something to look forward to (almost)!!! Couldn't recommend her and her team any more highly. They are all great
Dr Shirazy was great. She took time to explain everything and really made me feel comfortable and confident with everything. The rest of the team were also great. Actually looking forward to next appointment. My only regret was not coming to this office sooner. Will recommend to everyone!!
Great staff. Very informative. Very friendly. I was a new patient and will be back.
It was very pleasant. The staff was very friendly and professional. I would recommend to a friend. I will continue to see her. Thank you.
