Verified Patient Reviews
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 and did 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.
Professional staff, however, there was much uncertainty about billing and insurance coverage.
My doctor is the only person who makes a root canal feel like a minor tooth ache.
My Doctor is the only person that could make me after a Root Canal. He is the best Dental Doctor in Canarise my whole family sees him.
Very professional clean and the staff was very helpful and pleasant. Thank you Dr. Shamtoub.
Even though I used ZocDoc, my appointment was not in their system. ??
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 saw everyone'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.
Was good clean facility and amazing staff
altough i dont like going to the dentist i was very comfortabale with him
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 waiting for 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, and the 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.
I am so happy love him pulled my tooth in seconds best ever
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 complaint is the long wait time. I was on time for my scheduled appointment and waited almost 2 hours!
Excellent!! Would recommend anyone to visit .... I felt very welcome
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 date on the latest technology which makes things easier & service faster. This place was so much better than the previous dentist I found on my own
I think It was great I was really satisfied :)
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. They came 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.
Great very nice guy
I love this doctor, I'm terrified of needles in my mouth but he was kind and patient with me. And very reassuring.
I waited too long and he told me things I already knew, had to schedule another appointment to actually get work done. Probably won't come back
Very pleasant individual. Highly recommended.
I will bnot recommend anyone to this dentist , my root canal had to be denied by the insurance comapny
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 appointment was 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.
It was great! Best dentist and staff
Great dentist. Very nice and knowledgable about my issue. I felt very comfortable and relaxed while at the office.
I think it went well considering I am afraid of dentists.
Was good but all the appointments seemed to be made for the same time so the wait was long
My visit the second time with my Grand-children was much better than the first visit.Love the staff they are ALL very friendly and excellent with children.
I was very nervous and gee made me feel comfortable
He was very nice. It was a good experience
The lady at the front desk was very nice including the staff. The doctor wasn't so nice at all.
I thought it went well. Didn't wait very long. I even got my aunt to come back and see the dentist. This just might be my life long dentist.
Awesome staff, quick, easy and painless. Will definitely be returning.
Very caring and supportive
The wait is TOO long, especially for orthodontist who only goes once a month! Good thing is that they're open on Sundays :)
Disorganized office and appointments though nice front desk reception. Condescending bedside manner.
it went good
The waiting room was horrible. The secretary is a idiot and took her a hour to confirm my insurance information, she was very rude. Dr Shamtoub was great and very professional, it wouldve been a great experience if they had a new secretary.
Mr.Shamtoub was extremely nice. Mr.Shamtoub took his time to explain everything and even should a video which went more into details of certain procedures I had questions about. He did not rush which is a gem in our days. Before any work start Mr.Shamtoub and I spent about 20 minutes talking about different dental procedures. The hygienist was extremely nice as well. This is a friendly place and everybody has a very nice warming attitude.
Mr.Shamtoub was wonderful. He took his time explaining every. The Hygienist was very pleasant as well.
This was my 6 years old daughters first visit to a dentist, he was great the staff and doctor made her feel safe and confident. Plus she got a toy at the end :-)
