I was very pleased that the xrays and cleaning were done promptly. I waited a few minutes for the dentist butI was happy when no work was required. I was out in 45 minutes.

Highly irritating. They initially refused to see me because they could not confirm my insurance on a Sunday. They said theydo not see any appointments made through ZocDoc. And only because of my persistence an attitude they went ahead and more able to verify my insurance through Aetna via the web. I asked them why they're even on ZocDoc if they don't see the appointments and they claim they have been working to fix it.

This was not my best visit to his office. I went in for a cleaning and the hygienist was out and after waiting for 40 minutes they took X-Rays and told me that I would have to reschedule an appointment formy cleaning. I told them that this was unacceptable and they told me if I didn't want come back for the cleaning I would have to wait. I waited another 30 minutes and the cleaning was the fastest cleaning anyone has ever done on me. I was not pleased.

I specified in my appointment request that I needed my wisdom teeth pulled. After my appointment was accepted, I called an hour before to confirm my appointment. I arrrived 20 minutes before my appointment and the doctor was made aware thatI was requesting an extraction at the time of my X-Ray. Turns out the oral surgeon was not present and I had to wait until September 5 to remove my infected teeth. Today, I go to another surgeon and the office can't even send my X-ray to the new office.

As usual the doctor was extremely thorough with a great bed side manner and excellent staff. Unfortunately I had an appointment late in the afternoon and the technician that cleaned my teeth seemed to be in a rush to leave anddid not do a spectacular job that I have become accustomed to receiving.

The appointment was very quick and he handled my issue very nicely and professionally. The only problem was the wait time. I spent over 2 hours waiting and only spent about 10 minutes being seen by the DDS. Overall very great, just the wait time that needs improvement.

First visit was a long wait second visit was close to two hour wait and they took care of 5 people who came after me before they checked me in. I got a look at the sign in sheet and saweveryone's name marked of who where signed in and mine wasn't looked at. Then they told me that I did not have an appointment and tried to charge me a copay that I have never had to pay.

Awful. My first appointment was with Dr. Koorosh Shamtoub. He didn't introduce himself to me so I'm not sure it was him. I had to follow-up for a root canal. When I went for my appointment today 08/25, I was waitingfor 2 and a half hours. 7 people left because they couldn't wait (the plot thickens below). the staff were having loud and inappropriate conversations amongst themselves and were not helpful or apologetic for the wait. The "Dr" who was NOT Dr. Koorosh Shamtoub is supposed to be a specialist in doing root canals was unprofessional and rough. She was in deep conversation with her assistant when I came in so she also didn't introduce herself so I asked if I could sit down. She proceeded to talk with her assistant about boyfriends and other inappropriate content over me whilst doing my root canal as if I wasn't there. Then she said to her assistant that she won't be bothered to do anymore and is going to send the people that had made appointments away to reschedule. These people had been waiting for hours like I had. Apparently she only comes to the office twice a week on a Tuesday which makes it worse. I won't be going back for the crown that I need and would advise people to read this and be aware of what you are getting yourself into. As a first time user of Zocdoc this has definitely made me skeptical of using it again!

Not great. Seemed to be trying to fill my cavity as quickly as possible (no novocaine), and lots of the filling was all over my tooth/tongue afterwards. During the "cleaning" the hygienist also seemed to be trying to finish quickly, andthe job felt half done when I left. Additionally, the back of my throat is cut from the suction straw. And the place didn't feel clean... Not at all worth the money and the hassle getting there. I personally will not return.

Although I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Koorosh Shamtoub, another doctor worked on my fillings (which I didnt mind). I dont remember the other doctor's name but her bedside manner was great and she made me feel comfortable. My only complaintis the long wait time. I was on time for my scheduled appointment and waited almost 2 hours!

The office is very clean and orderly. They were able to address all my issues & provide me with appointments within a the upcoming days so I don't have to wait long for another appointment. The office is up to dateon the latest technology which makes things easier & service faster. This place was so much better than the previous dentist I found on my own

Office was close by. But got there waited for more than an hour and I missed church. The secretary was very nice and helpful and so was the people that was administrating me. But the hygienist and Dr. were rude. Theycame into the room and I didn't even know they were there. The doctor looked at my mouth then left and I never saw him again. I don't even remember what he looks like. I will go for a second a follow up appointment but that's it for that office.

I decided to check out Mr Koorosh since he was so close to home and had Sunday appointment availability. I saw him for an oral surgery and invisalign consultation and knowing what i know I would never go back. My appointmentwas very rushed. He did not take the time out to listen to my cosmetic concerns about my teeth and he basically brushed me off and said I would have to reschedule another appointment to see both the invisialign specialist and the oral surgeon, It was hard getting a medical opinion about anything I wanted to do because I had to see these "specialists". Making another appointment for yet another consulation was out of the question for me. I just wished they had told me this over the phone.
