Patient reviews for Dr. Mario Tuchman
Dr. Tuchman is the best! Super caring and skilled at what he does.
Great doctor! The office was clean and inviting, and I can’t say enough nice things about the efficient, knowledgeable, thorough, helpful, and friendly Office Manager Matt. He checked not once, but twice to ensure that I was in-Network. His warmth made me feel welcome from the initial phone call all the way to my visit two weeks later—and once the nerves of having to pull my wisdom teeth started to set in, Dr. Tuchman was there to allay them. His calm and clear explanations of the procedure and warm, jovial attitude really helped me relax. And for having two teeth pulled without going under sedation, it was not too painful. I hope I never have to go back—who wants more oral surgery?!—but if the need ever arises, this would be my first choice.
His diagnosis was right but the treatment he suggested was very extreme and the most expensive. I would recommend have different options from other dentists before decide. I did that and decided not go for his solution.
Very professional and kind! Walked me through each step of my wisdom teeth surgery and made sure I knew what all of the before and after processes would be like. Very kind and welcoming staff attending as well. Highly highly recommend!
I had a complicated wisdom tooth and have been to three other doctors and they couldn't take it out. It was only Dr Mario that was able to take it out.
Very informative and personable, extremely friendly staff. I would highly recommend this doctor to anyone
Dr Tuchman did a great job treating my issue, and explaining thing. He also completed the necessary procedure the same day as the consultation. Office staff were also very pleasant and helpful.
I had been avoiding getting my wisdom teeth out for a while. Dr. Tuchman made the process super easy and (for the most part) painless!
I highly recommend Dr. Tuchman and his staff! I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth extracted (most of them were impacted) by Dr. Tuchman. Despite being very nervous about the procedure, he was great in guiding me through what the procedure would be like and educated me about my teeth. He has a very attentive bedside manner and is knowledgeable. I am happy that I chose him to do my wisdom tooth extraction! The procedure went smoothly, and I didn't have almost any pain afterwards and pretty minimal swelling. I did have to wait a little bit in the chair for him, but definitely worth the wait if you get to the appointment early because he takes time and a lot of care with his patients. His secretary is also great and helped me reschedule my appointment a couple times after I needed things switched around. If you're scared of getting your wisdom teeth removed, I would highly recommend Dr. Tuchman's office.
Great dentist , great front office manager Mike , everyone is amazing here .. a wonderful experience overall .
Best dentist visit ever. Went in for a tooth extraction and he fixed gum pain that I had been living with for over 10 years.
From a medical standpoint. Dr. Tuchman was professional. I was refereed to him via my dentist for a small oral operation. However, the issues I experienced were all clerical. Not once was I ever told that my insurance was not taken. I had assumed (since it was a recommendation from my dentist) that it would naturally be covered. After MONTHS of back and fourth email correspondence I had to foot the entire bill for the surgery. This could have been completely avoided if anyone at any point mentioned that my insurance was not accepted. Felt completely taken advantage of. The practice did nothing to rectify the situation.
Great doctor, but more importantly, great guy. He made me comfortable enough where I wanted to give him my business. I got 4 wisdom teeth taken out and had no pain at all, even after.
Appreciated Dr Tuchman's calm demeanor, and thorough explanation of everything - as well as his office's willingness to explain the charge side of things. Very happy.
Dr. Tuchman, Matt and Pauline are wonderful! Everyone is so kind and professional.
Honestly great visit. I had a terrible experience with another oral surgeon and he was great at calming me down and took his time with the procedure. Barely swollen the next day!
Dr. Tuchman is top-notch! I had to have my wisdom teeth taken out (a real treat at almost 30-years-old) and the whole process was smooth and easy, including the recovery itself. I had absolutely no swelling and didn't need anything besides Tylenol for pain-management. He has excellent bedside manner and a great staff of nurses. Additionally, everything was very transparent with billing and paperwork was handled efficiently with my insurance. Highly recommend!
I had wisdom tooth surgery and Dr. Tuchman and his staff were great. I was super nervous and the staff was very friendly and calming and Dr.Tuchman answered all of my questions. I had very little pain and no complications at all post surgery. He even followed up the next day to make sure everything was okay. Overall a great experience, would definitely recommend.
I make an appointment with Dr. Tuchman last minute. He was knowledgeable, patient and clearly explained my options even when I asked the same questions twice. it's hard to find a doctor that is good at what he does and also has excellent bedside manners. I highly recommend him, and I would go there again.
I'm really torn about writing this review. While my experience with Dr. Tuchman was really great (very attentive, understood the pain I was in), I felt that the administrative side of things were handled so poorly, I don't think I could recommend the practice. The office manager was rather curt and unprofessional, and while the doctor was kind and understanding, the office manager was rather pushy with financials, and just very unprofessional overall. Even though I was in a lot of pain, I felt rather humiliated by the whole experience, and decided to seek a different opinion elsewhere. Dr. Tuchman is great, but the administrative staff... not so much.
Very welcoming and really explained everything that was going on
It was amazing. Checkup before Being seen , doctor personally responding to emails, and quick and speedy surgery!
Dr. Tuchman is very knowledgeable, calming, reassuring, and is excellent at what he does. I went in to have 2 wisdom teeth removed and he told me seemingly basic things about my teeth that my pediatric dentist never told me. I'm now almost 30! Not to mention the extractions were painless and done in under 45 minutes. I highly recommend him and will definitely be going back for him to remove my other two wisdom teeth.
Dr. Tuchman and his staff were great. They were able to get me in for consultation and surgery in the same day. They gave clear after-care instructions and when I had a post-surgery question they called me back right away. Highly recommended!
Professional and Courteous. Wait time is reasonable. Office may need a bit of update, but that's minor. Mario didn't rush at all. Gave me all the time I wanted to explain my problems, explained to me in detail about possible options. Front desk was bare minimum courteous, nursing staff and back office staff was very courteous.
Dr. Tuchman is very knowledgeable and helpful, however the office is very pushy about payments and not the friendliest when asking for estimates on the phone.
Dr. Tuchman was a life savior! I was in a bunch of pain and needed my wisdom teeth taken out. He calmed me down and walked me through my diagnosis and proposed next steps. I'm so glad I met Dr. Tuchman. He made me feel safe and took great care of me. I highly recommend him!
Only real issue is that I had to pay a copay before being treated, you as the patient never pay anything prior to them going through insurance FIRST, not here though
Untruthfully presenting his insurance acceptance on the website. Deceiving patients and luring them into his office knowing that their specific insurance will be covered. Collecting the payment upfront and making the patient suffer financially by changing the insurance code and blinding them. Front desk assistant was not being honest.
Dr. Tuchman removed all four of my wisdom teeth (1 was impacted). I have friends who complained about swollen jaws and pain for a couple weeks after their operations performed by other oral surgeons. However, I was pain free within a day and completely healed within a week. Thank you Dr. Tuchman for your bedside manner - we viewed the x-rays together and it felt like I was being educated and any questions I came up with he answered very clearly and professionally. Great Experience. Highly recommended. Also, the office was extremely helpful! I made my ZocDoc appt. on a Saturday and later that evening I got a call from the secretary and was prescribed medication to deal with the tooth pain I'd been experiencing. Thank you !
Everybody was exellent
Highly, highly recommend. Following a night of no sleep and constant tooth ache, Dr.Tuchman moved his schedule around, his staff had my insurance worked out first thing in the AM, I was first in and out in a half hour and I feel much better. Feel lucky to have found him in the city.
Nice easygoing guy that was very informative, answered all questions in detail and his staff was really nice too
Fantastic doctor - highly knowledgeable and great bedside manner. Entire staff helpful and informative. Get your wisdom teeth out here :)
Dr. Tuchman was extremely knowledgeable and was able to explain and address all my questions/concerns. Great beside manner. The office staff was rude, unfriendly and pushy. I did not feel welcomed or like a valued patient. I am going back as I trust Dr. Tuchman but my experience with the office staff was not pleasant.
Dr. Tuchman is an excellent oral surgeon with a very well organized office.
The doctor is attentive and seems honest. I suffer from anxiety and he reassured me everything will be ok.
Excellent Dentist all the way around!!
My wisdom tooth started to hurt a few days back and dint think that it was that serious until one night I couldn't sleep at all because of the severe pain. I started looking for an oral surgeon via zocdoc and found Dr. Tuchman and booked my appointment for the following morning. I wanted to make sure that the extraction would happen on the same day - and it did!! By noon I was on my way home ready and done. The experience was great, the procedure flawless and with practically no post surgery pain. He called me next day to check how i was doing as well. great job, thanks a lot Doc!!
Saw Dr. Tuchman for a consultation for wisdom teeth extraction. He is very nice, straight forward, and seems very experienced and passionate about his work. His office is nice, although the waiting area is very small. His staff is friendly, although I did wait in the waiting area for a good 25 minutes, even though I was early for my appointment.
Went in for an initial consultation, ended up going back in a few weeks later to get my wisdom teeth removed. Overall great guy - the procedure was very smooth and felt fine the day after the surgery. Would definitely recommend Dr. Tuchman to others, especially to those looking to get their wisdom teeth out.
Personable. Knowledgeable. Efficient. I was squeezed into his afternoon, and at one point he apologized for a slight delay. Remarkable. And the support staff reflects this attitude. A+
He was great. Fortunately, I had nothing serious to deal with, but he still took the time to educated me on all the details of my issues. He showed me photos, drew diagrams and made the best recommendations for my health (and wallet). Thanks, John
