I recommend! I've been going to Dr. Spindel for a couple years. I found him on Zocdoc initially; his office location is super convenient, and his availability is great (I think I initially got an appointment day-of). I think he isawesome and I love his staff (amazing dental assistant and receptionist). He and the staff are caring, thoughtful, and I have never felt they were rushed. They also gave me an awesome and closeby dental surgeon recommendation last year when I needed my wisdom teeth taken out, so it's great to know that I have everything teeth-related covered in NYC :-).

I enjoyed my visit with Dr. Spindel. He was very personable (he says it's the coffee!), and his staff treated me extremely well. Dr. Spindel thoughtfully explained my options, and briefed me on the process I was about to undergo. Theoffice was exceedingly clean and comforting, with Louis Armstrong and Big Band music setting the mood. It was an unexpected, but welcome pleasure. I would happily recommend Dr. Spindel to anyone.

I have been a patient of Dr. Spindel for over a decade and am always pleased with his work. His staff is very friendly and have been very patient when I have had to change times or have run late. Thetwo qualities for which I am most appreciative are that Dr. Spindel is almost always accessible in case of a question or problem and that he has always been very candid and honest about the work that "has to be done" versus work that "could" be done.

Dr Spindel was great; he was thorough and explained to me my options instead of trying to hard sell me everything, which is what I've come to expect from dentists. Ultimately, I was there just for a cleaning and he wasin an out and my teeth were shiny as new. We had a good chat about Zoc Doc and Yelp reviews, and he even has a dentistry blog that he writes regulary on!
