She is the BEST
All the staff were very nice, the office is very clean, the paperwork was very organized, checkin was a breeze and Dr. Harvey was patient, attentive and careful with her work. I didn't wait at all and we got started with the exam early. I would recommend Dr. Harvey and her practice to anyone in the area looking for a dentist.
Amazing! Dr. Harvey worked with what I needed and was super easy going and flexible about it all. Thank you!
Overall always a great experience. The office is conveniently located in the Marina and clean and inviting. The staff is polite and friendly. You aren't kept waiting forever and the appointment goes quickly and smoothly.
Friendly staff and doctor. Zero wait time. Quick in and out appointment and all questions answered.
I am very satisfied with the service that I received from Dr. Harvey and her assistants. The service is excellent!
Very efficient and professional
I went to her office for consultation about what procedures are required to repair my upper and lower dental prosthesis. She advised me on the process needed for dental surgery and rebuilding or remaking both of the dentures. I was quite surprised to find very lengthy stairs had to be climbed to the next floor and access to the office and exam rooms. I have physical disabilities and the stairs are daunting. I was given assistance by Cristia Flemings, Office Manager. I was also adviced to seek further dental treatment at another one of their offices which is located on the ground floor.
It's was so great! From the scheduling on the phone, to getting updates via email and text, the whole customer experience was top notch. When I got to the office the staff greeted me by name, took care of all of my insurance needs, and even did a quick price check to see what further treatments would cost. I went in for a basic cleaning. It was quick, efficient, and I felt very comfortable in Dr. Harvey's hands. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for a great Dentist!
I love the office, staff, and Dr. Harvey!
It was my first time visiting this office from a referral from my original dentist, and I think everyone was very personable, warm, and friendly. Ms. Harvey and her assistant help in quelling my nervousness and anxiety, so I appreciate them for that. I would definitely recommend them to other patients who are seeking quality dental care, and a long-term dentist.
Dr. Harvey, her dental assistant, as well as the receptionist were professional and courteous. I was seen right away and was out in exactly one hour.
Everyone was super friendly, office had all the latest dental tech (digital x-rays, camera, etc), and they provided helpful info without pressuring additional work.
Dr. Harvey and her staff were excellent. They were very friendly and welcoming. The care I received was even better.
Very friendly and efficient!
Difficult filling but Dr. Harvey and Christine worked creatively and seamlessly to get it done. Great job accompanied by a friendly and supportive bed side manner!
The cleaning was quick and easy. She told me what she was doing before she started and during which was comforting. She was gentle and asked if I was comfortable throughout. The only thing I found odd was that she started talking to the hygienist about how the hiring for a new dental assistant was going and talked about her old office and the problems they faced. I found it somewhat unprofessional to have a business discussion in front of a patient.
A dentist that will see you before 9!
listen, if you want to get your teeth xrayed, poked, cleaned, scraped, filled by a super nice staff- this is the place to be. I honestly felt like i was just chillin with my peeps, and it just so happened they were working on my teeth. We talked soccer, superbowl, and even career aspirations. Listened to some PYT by MJ, it was wonderful. Plus I had to go back in for a just-in-case and they fixed me right up in like 5 mins. + no wait + goodie bag + Cristina and Madana are so personable and friendly, phenomenal bedside manner + clean + welcoming - i felt TOO at home, i wanted to keep going back to hang out.
Excellent! I will be back and so happy to have found a great dentist in my neighborhood. Clean, efficient and great bedside manner!
She was extremely friendly and professional. Like, I felt like i was in the hands of a very trusted college friend, who also happened to be a skilled dentist. Her staff member (Cristina?) was also very warm and accommodating. I felt right at home, and all the scary dentist stuff (drills, picks, xrays, cavities) felt less worrisome.
