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 toothfrom 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!

Everyone at Dr. Fishkin's office was extremely friendly and caring. Dr. Fishkin acted very professionally and yet maintained an empathetic and personal approach, which helped me relax and not worry too much while she was doing her work. Shewas very gentle in handling my teeth and made me feel safe. I will definitely be coming back.

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. Shethen 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 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.

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.

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 abit 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.

She did not say much. It was a very brief appointment in a darkly lit office. Efficient. Probably sufficient cleaning.

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 thefront 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, nordo 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.

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.

My gums were in bad shape and I was nervous about getting a checkup, but Dr. Fishkin patiently talked to me through it in her gentle Russian accent. Even though I freaked out a little, she was kind and kept tellingI was "doing great. Excellent." It was over before I knew it.
