Verified Patient Reviews
Although the girl who performed cleaning did an excellent job. Linda Salmon was extremely rude. Staff is helpful and friendly.
Wonderful experience for my 5 year old today.
I was a new patient with Dr. Salmon and had gone in for TMJ pain as well as a cleaning. Her office staff is lovely and the equipment is state of the art. Was quite pleased until I encountered Dr. Salmon. She was abrupt and curt with her staff as well as distant and very removed during her encounter with me. She spent the first half of my appt. reasoning and reentering all the questions that were already documented in my file. She then looked at the scan of my jaw that her staff had taken before meeting her. She prescribed me a pretty heavy medication for it. I asked if it would react with some of the other meds I was on and she told me it shouldn't but just take at night to be sure since my other mess were taken in the morning. All this while NEVER EVER taking a look inside my mouth. Really? Then I had my teeth cleaned by her hygienist who again was lovely. She commented that my teeth looked great and she didn't see anything to be concerned with but Dr. Salmon would be in to follow up. Dr. Salmon finally looked into my mouth, did the fastest exam I have ever had and told me I had a cavity that needed to be filled. Then left with her usual poor bedside manner. The oddest part was when she came to say goodbye and tell me how nice it was to meet me as I was checking out at the front desk after acting like she could care less when I was in her chair. Very odd. Have no desire to go back to her or recommend her.
Today they had an emergency so appointments were running late, but I'm glad she accommodates emergency because you never know when its your turn.
I loved the hygenist. The dentist was great. The entire office eas great!!
Dr. Salmon didn't receive my appointment from ZocDoc, but she stayed late and did the cleaning herself. She was very thorough and gentle.
Very professional team.
