I usually do not like to go to dentists but this was the best dental appointment I had. From the secretary at the front desk to the dental hygienist to the dentist, everybody was very knowledgeable, helpful and professional. I evenrecommended my husband to come here and he loved it.

I love Dr. Medina - he's great with my dental anxiety. It must be noted, however, that dealing with reception can be frustrating...that is also part of the experience of seeing a medical professional.

Doctor Medina is very professional and makes you feel like you knew him since your first tooth popped up. I was using a dentist in my home town (6 hours away) and was hesitant to switch to a dentist in NYC.I have been going to Dr. Medina for over a year now and I don't plan on changing! Thanks Zocdoc for helping me find the perfect dentist!

He took his time to hear my concerns and addressed them. I came in with a front tooth that looked horrible. It was chipped from my previous dentist with a drill machine after fixing a filling adjacent to the one hebutchered. But not here he fixed it and made it look brand new. Took care of the old filling too. Medina was gentle and felt no pain during the filling and fileing.

Like most people, I hate going to the dentist. Dr. Medina makes it bearable because he somehow manages to make it painless. I've been to other dentists where even getting a crown hurt. There is a bonus too, his wonderful dentalnurse, Liesel, gives your jaw and sides of your face a nice massage when you've had your mouth open for a while! They are genuinely interested in your well being.

Dr. Medina is a fabulous dentist. I have had to have a root canal and a few fillings done over the past month and Dr. Medina (and the amazing staff of the office) put me at ease immediately. I had apainless root canal (that was QUICK!) and have had wonderful visits. Need a dentist? Go see Dr. Medina!

I have had sweet dentists in the past, but Dr. Medina wasn't only pleasant to be seen by he was also incredibly thorough. He walked me, patiently, through what he saw, what needed to be done, and what he recommend. Hewas amazing and after seeing me he didn't just go back to his office, he was very much involved with each person I dealt with after seeing him ensuring I was well looked after. Not that the team needed directing at all but it was very comforting.

I'm extremely skeptical of any doctor I meet, and had low expectations when looking for a dentist. I went to Dr. Medina after 2 weeks of pain from my wisdom teeth that were coming in. I was running late to theappointment and hoped they would still see me, and fortunately they did! The staff at the front desk were so very kind and welcoming! Brian is a ray of light, the office itself it beautiful and everyone was so helpful!! Dr. Medina was extremely thorough and made me feel very comfortable even though I'm in a lot of pain!! The assistant (who's name I forgot, I'm sorry!!) who took my xrays was wonderful and made the X-ray much more enjoyable. Dr. Medina was very thorough in explaining what was happening with my growing teeth and how the extraction process goes. I had a bit of trouble with my insurance but they were very accommodating and sweet about it! I would and will recommend them to anyone who is looking for a dentist!

Today, Dr. Medina did a RCT and this one was my third and, thankfully, my last one. As usually he was extremely gentle and kept making sure I was okay by simy asking. He always talks to me when he doesany procedure no matter how simple or complicated it is. His assistant was extremely friendly and sweet. Also, I had the honor of meeting Dr. Gonzales and Dr. Papadakis. He reviewed my case and gave me another option and his opinion regarding my teeth and my smile. Very professional environment! I look forward for our second phase; veneers! Thank you!
