Dr Fishkin is our family dentist for a reason: she is THE BEST. I came this time for a cleaning but intense pain in what seemed like the front of my tooth. She fixed everything beautifully and she saved my tooth from a root canal, which I'm sure a different dentist wouldn't bother to do. I actually look forward to see the dentist now! Now THAT'S something!

Dr Fishkin is the most knowledgeable dentist I've ever met! And her aesthetic work is truly impeccable. I had an embarrassing front tooth darkening that she fixed so well, I can't even believe I have a filling. And zero pain. She then found a few other fillings in tricky places and gave me the most through cleaning of my life. I'm definitely recommending this dentist to everyone I know.

She was very patient with me, I was very scared (crying and all) she took her time and explained what she was going to do and when she used a new instrument she explained how it would sound/feel. Front desk and assistant very nice and helpful as well!

She is very gentle in her workmanship, and very cognizant of your comfort. She has again done considerable necessary work on my teeth, and I have left her office feeling no pain after the Novocain has long since worn off. I highly recommend her skills.

I went in for a general check-up as a first-time patient after not going to the dentist for a good long while and it went about as well as I could have hoped for - the cleaning and x-rays were a bit uncomfortable and it turned out that I needed a filling, but everything was quick, the filling was pretty much painless, and the whole visit took 90 minutes and I was in the chair for less than an hour. They were very conscientious about making sure I knew what my insurance covered and what I would need to pay out of pocket. I went ahead and planned another appt with them for the spring.

Extremely unsatisfied with the work i have received from Dr. Fishkin. The dental work was extremely sloppy and required additional revision by another dentist who had to redo all of the work. Her demeanor is extremely cold, she seemed frazzled and overworked with every follow up visit.

just didnt feel comfortable. very rough...not very professional...she was on the phone while we were in progress. she did the most basic clean up as possible. she didnt put enough effort where u wanted to visit her again. she just didnt feel like a happy dentist. personality is everything when someone is in your mouth and causing discomfort for a period of time.

This was my first visit at this practice. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The dentist - Dr Fishkin was equally as friendly and detailed. After a thorough examination, she went over my treatment plan! Before leaving the front desk walked me through my next steps. A dentist visit is never enjoyable, but this was by far one of my best!

To begin with, the staff in the front office was excellent. They went through the paperwork very smoothly and explained aspects of the insurance that I was not familiar with as I am a first time user of dental health insurance. Following this an assistant took multiple xrays of my teeth and gums, which was went without any inconvenience to me. Finally Dr Margarita was just fantastic. She explained the process to me in good detail and was exceptionally kind and polite in her manner. She is an absolute professional and filled in my cavities with no discomfort experienced by me at all. I felt the process was pain free, professional with a healthy dose of patient care, almost motherly care. I highly recommend her for my family and friends for sure and that is the best compliment I can give to her and her staff.

I was recommended to Dr. Fishkin through a friend who had a few more complicated dental issues than I do, and he spoke the world of Dr. Fishkin's work. I don't get to the dentist as often as I should, nor do I floss with the recommended frequency, but she was gentle and nonjudgmental despite the high task my teeth and gums had set for her. She was very thorough and time efficient, and explained everything she was doing as it was done. And I've since kept up flossing just because I wanted to sustain that post-appointment clean feeling! I would definitely recommend Dr. Fishkin to anyone in the NY area.

I came to the doctor because I had pain. She assessed me very thoroughly, treated me and made me aware of everything she did at every step. She was really wonderful and knows not only what she is doing but how to handle patients. I'm very happy with my experience and will be coming back for regular visits. Excellent staff as well! Thank you.

The hygienist,was excellent,very friendly and efficient, the receptionist was also helpful and courteous, but the dentist was absolutely rude, arrogant, and condescendingl I brought my son with me, and he was so upset over her horrible attitude, that he will not return until I find another dentist. She should retire and move to a secluded treehouse.
