Verified Patient Reviews
I continue to very satisfied with the quality and professionalism of Murray Hill Dental. Dr. Katayev is a great dentist always striving to make me feel comfortable. I am very happy to have found such high standard of care with Murray Hill Dental. I would not hesitate to recommend your dental office to my friends.
He had an excellent bedside manner. He was patient in his explanation about my treatment plan and the financial responsibilities.
Nice Dr, but way way too expensive.
I still continue to be very satisfied with the professionalism of Murray Hill Dental. Dr. Katayev did a great job on redoing my old fillings. So very happy to have found them. Pola R.
This was my 4th visit there and so far, I am completely satisfied with the service provided by staff as well as doctors and thus, would highly recommend this facility.
Great reviews in every way. Very professional from the dentist to the hygienist. No waiting time on a consistent basis. Very clean place and everyone is very nice. PR
He seems genuinely interested in providing good dental care, rather than just getting more clients in and out the door. I highly recommend him as my treatment by him has consistently been great.
It was great, no issues at all very gentle
Fast and painless , I'm happy with the work He did
Dr. Katayev is always thorough and professional. His staff is pleasant and very knowledgeable. The office is aesthetically pleasing and very clean.
Always professional and friendly, takes time to explain things. Highly recommend. Excellent service by his front desk staff ;)
This dentist was ok during my first year or so of coming to him. Office is clean, organized. The wait time is almost zero. They see you right away which is great but ....Then one day ( I believe my third year of coming) when I showed up for my treatment another dentist walked in and told me that he would be my dentist from now on. Dr. Katayev himself would no longer be working with my insurance. No letters, no email, no calls. Nothing to notify me of such a change. Then when he realized I wasn't too happy he said ''he could'' accommodate me and see me ( as if he was doing me such a favor). But this is not even the worse! Dr. Katayev's behavior seemed really odd last year (2016). You could scroll down on this page and see some other reviews about his bedside manners. He was very rude and had ZERO patience. One day as I sat on the chair to do 1 crown he did a SECOND crown without even asking me if I wanted to do that second crown that day ( opposite sides of the mouth!). He was rushing , acting aggressive and throwing his tools on the counter as if he was mad about something. The water was dripping from my mouth all the way down my neck into my shirt and no one would wipe it. When he finished, he left the room without saying a word to me until I noticed the temp crown was EXTREMELY high and had to be fixed otherwise I wouldn't be able to talk or eat. He then returned to the room to fix it but with an attitude as if I was wasting his time ( if he had done a proper job he wouldn't have to come back and fix it!) He was obviously having a bad day and taking it on me, his patient. The crowns were absolutely terrible and I had to take painkiller for months! I totally regret doing crowns with him ( 5 crowns!!). The way he applied anesthesia on my gums was BARBARIC to make it light.The gum area was sore for weeks afterwards . Also, he and his staff speak Russian (or whatever language they speak) the entire time ( not professional at all!). I could write soooo many things here. Last year, I saw 2 ladies very upset about him in the waiting room ( one actually wrote a review here. Her review is 100% accurate because I was actually there when she had her experience). This doctor only cares about money. He does not care about your teeth at all. The staff is terrified of him. Everyone can see that. I decided to stop going to him after last year's horrible experience ( I am making it brief here as I could write a book about it!!!). I would not recommend him at all. At first he may try to be nice to you. But after a few appointments or years you will see it for yourself. There are so many dentists in the city!!! Don't settle for someone like this!
Problems with communication, and as a result he gets a bit annoyed if you don't understand what he wants you to do. However, he tries to contain himself, but it comes out anyway. For someone who is sensitive about provider's tones during a time when you are very nervous and feels a bit helpless. Additionally, my gums were in pain this morning from my new dentures, not sure if it will be as comfortable as my old ones, and if he will have the patience to work with me through this.
Dr.Katayev saved my teeth! I have been coming to him for about 4-5years now for fillings and cleanings. He is always professional, timely, and compassionate. I would refer anyone to his dental office that is looking for a highly satisfying dental treatment service.
Highly professional, very understanding and very knowledgeable!
Dr. Katayev was very gentle with administering the injection for anasthesia to do my dental work. That is a huge plus for me. He is very efficient and very pleasant.
Very professional !
Very professional and also the staff
I felt very well taken care of. I had vitually no wait time. My co -pay was made clear as well as my remaining balance so I was able to plan my future care. The procedure was done quickly and efficiently as was my payment and follow up procedure. A very good experience all around
I am usually nervous about going to the dentist, but after my first appointment with Dr. Katayev I feel so much better about coming here! When I first arrived I noticed the front desk staff was extremely warm, friendly and accommodating. Almost as soon as I came in and had finished the paperwork, they were ready to take me in and I was thrilled. I went in for an Invisalign consultation; the doctor explained to me in great detail what needed to be done and how to proceed. My insurance parameters were taken into consideration, and my finance concerns were addressed, which I very much appreciated. The front desk staff went over a payment plan with me and said that they would work with me in financing the treatment, which was so relieving to hear. I really appreciated the fact that they took the time to listen to and answer all my questions. I will be returning here to proceed with the treatment and am now at great ease about going to the dentist. I highly recommend this office!
On my first initial visit his chair side manner was not up to par; on this particular instance, while sitting in the exam chair and my mouth propped wide open and dental instruments in my mouth for initial exam, he kept referring to me by calling me another patient's name, so I corrected him and of course he apologized and that is when he realized and said he was looking at the wrong dental chart which was mounted electronically on display in his sleek upscale dental office. On my last visit, there were some mention of a payment that required attention and the way the matter was handled and addressed was inappropriate and unprofessional. I never received an official billing statement for services rendered nor was there a courtesy phone concerning recent charges that occurred within the past 7 day of my last visit and how the overage of that service unfortunately was not going to be covered by my insurance and how payment arrangements needed to take place prior to arriving to my next follow up visit. On the day of my next visit, I was caught like a deer in headlights when I was strong armed to make a payment right then and there on the spot before entering the patients exam room to complete my follow up exam for denture adjustment. I was appalled. The outcome of this situation, billing invoice paid in full, follow up exam completed, a release form signed by me, electronic dental exams obtained and future appointments canceled.
I am surprised why doctor Kataev has such good reviews, from my experience he is very unprofessional. It seems like the facility mostly cares about how to charge your Insurance for procedures which you didn't ask for. I went to see doctor Kataev in order to do filling for one of my teeth. He also recommended some procedures. Only recommended, it is not like I have to do it immediately, I didn’t have any pain in that moment. I agreed to fix my 15th teeth, and I was not sure if I will do everything what he recommended. I made my second appointment at 9 am ( before work) in order to fix 15th teeth. Doctor Kataev actually wanted to do a root canal and put crown after, but he said the filling might work as well. I asked him to try filling first. He was doing something for 30 mins. After he was done fixing 15th teeth, he removed my 16th (wisdom) teeth even without asking me - if I want to remove it in general, or if I want to remove in the morning BEFORE WORK. Once he was done, he didn’t even tell me, what he did with 15th teeth, if he did crown or filling, he just left fast. Once they asked me to pay for procedures, I only there realized what he did with 15th teeth. I was really upset and mad, that he removed my 16th teeth without even asking me, since I had important stuff to do at work in that day, and I couldn’t do anything. I need to take 3 days off after that, because my face was really swelling, and pain went directly to my ear. I personally have plenty of issues with my stomach now, meaning it is not good for me to take any painkillers or antibiotics, and I mentioned it in papers which they gave me to filled up. It seems like they don't even review it! Because I need to take antibiotics now for the teeth and I really don’t want to do it. I feel like it is really unprofessional removing the teeth on the morning without my permission!
Im afraid of the drill, I thought I was only getting a cleaning and ended up getting an extraction. As scared as I was the Dr. put me at ease and it wasn't as bad as I thought. I usually avoid going to the dentist but I'm not afraid to come here
I have been a patient of Dr Katayev for over 5 years, he is absolutely the best! The work he does is outstanding, I had crown done and it looks and feels like my own tooth, he cured many cavities I never had pain before or after- he is amazing! The staff is very polite, professional and always will make the visit pleasant. I recommended Doctor to many of my friends and coworkers , everyone is very happy with the work he and his staff does.
Excellent and very professional.,
All he spoke was his language to his assistant. I told him I was unable to breathe his exact words were I'm doing a procedure. After he was finished I told him he have a mouth on him anyway he apologize so I accept his apology
dr. Katayev is OSM! i was transfered to him, when my previous dentist moved and first i was worried, but turned out, that he is a great dentist, always very gentle, helpful and friendly. always ready to answer any questions and explain the treatment.
I was late, however, when I arrived I was promptly ushered right in, and the Dr came soon thereafter, where he began my work. The visit was not that long at all, as I received my two fillings in less than 30mins?? . The staff and Dr were kind and professional, I recommend this practice.
Underneath the dental care and assistance of Dr. Katayev my oral health has improved tremendously!
Excellent work. Nice staff
The atmosphere of the staff was very professional and courteous. Dr. Katayev is very reassuring and friendly. Always a smile. He makes you feel very comfortable. Asks if you have any questions. Just overall pleasant.
Great office! Great work. Everyone is so kind and the doctor was excellent. Didn't have to wait long and everyone was willing to help and very professional. This office made my visit way more comfortable.
I expressed my concerns to Dr. Katayev about having a tooth extracted to fit a partial bridge. He met with me twice AND called me to answer further questions (I'm a delight in the dentist chair) and on the day on the procedure, he worked a bit and told me he could fit the bridge without doing the extraction. I was beyond thrilled. I was in and out in the exact time scheduled, didn't have to wait too long, and the who experience was extremely positive.
He's professional and informative. Very likable. And upfront. Terrific bedside manners. I had an extraction which took minutes and the recovery was seamless with very little bleeding. I arrived at 5 and was done by 5:15. Nice, right!
I started seeing Dr Katayev a few months ago, He was always professional and made me feel comfortable right away. He explains everything that he's doing and stops periodicaly to see if you're ok. Because of my fear of the dentist it took me awhile to find one I was comfortable with.
Dr Michael managed to put me at ease with his smile and his knowledge and he was extremely professional, I generally do not like dentists but two minutes with him and I totally felt I could trust him with my teeth. Plus he was very transparent and explained to me exactly what was going on and what needed to be done
By far the best dentist I have been to! Will be returning for any other issues!
Always the best, thats why i keep going there again and again :)
I would keep going here, he's just out of my insurance network.
One of the best Dentist I have been to. He is very organized and detail oriented. Answered all my questions and concerns. Highly recommend for everyone. His office is very clean and the technology is up-to-date! I will be going back to him for any dental problems.
my experience with the doc is 2 years ago to remove my wisdom teeth. after he found out my dental plan, he split the procedure into a few parts to potentially charge more. at bedside, he was rude and hard to talk to. After he removed my tooth, I requested to see it, he was impatient and just gave me a glimpse before taking it away. The experience was impersonal.
This dentist was recommended by a co-worker and I do not regret having gone, the professionalism in this office is awsome, from the receptionist to the doctor was spectacular, the only thing I know is my co-worker is geting free lunch today, haha, thanks Dr. Katayev
This review is long overdue, I have been a patient of Dr. Michael Katayev since 2013 and I am satisfied with his dental work. Before Dr. Katayev I experienced my share of "chop shop" dental clinics, who ruined my smile and did mediocre dental work. Since coming to Dr. Katayev's clinic my dental problems have been reduced.Dr. Katayev and his team make my visits to the dentist office less dreadful! He has done teeth cleaning, and minor dental surgery for me. I like the fact that he does the initial teeth cleaning and not a hygienist.
Schedules are kinda spaced out so whenever you come in it's not too long of a wait.. Doctor is very helpful in answering every question you have..
Very kind, getle and professional doctor and stuff :-)
I highly recommend this dr. Katayev. I was in and out of the office in no time. Dr. Katayev answered all my questions and took time to explain all the procedures.
My experience with Dr. Kateyev was incredible and easily the most enjoyable experience I've ever had with a dentist. From check in, throughout the cleaning to his final recommendations, Dr. Kateyev and his staff were thorough, courteous and kind. I plan on coming back and telling all of my colleagues and friends.
He was great I will be going back for my 6 months check up
Very efficient and friendly
Great team, very friendly but professional. Dr Katayev explains the procedure clearly and instantly makes you feel comfortable and confident. Would highly recommend.
It was great, Dr. Michael is very professional and the staff that works there are well commited to an excellent service.
Dr. Katayev has been my dentist for a little over 7 years now. I refuse to go to anyone else. His staff is always attentive and very punctual when it comes to booking an appointment. Clean comfy and reliable office. They even send you a birthday card every year never missed one!
Was thrilled to meet a dentist who didn't just pile on unnecessary services and treatments which I've experienced in the past. Very honest & good dentist; not a salesman. Highly recommend.
This place is great. The staff is very friendly and welcoming and Dr. Katayev was wonderful.
Highly recommended! Very friendly stuff, and Mr. Katayev is a trully dedicated professional. Definitely 5* service!
The best dentist I've seen in years. He and his entire staff were incredibly friendly and took the time to talk me through any questions I had. Highly recommended!
I am a person that is terrified of going to the dentist. I have been to a few dentists in the past and have had work done, but it was always such a trauma. Before, during and after. I would put off going to the dentist until I absolutely was forced to do so because of pain. I know dental medicine has come far, but prior to this visit, I always had pain and discomfort. This time I was forced to look for a dentist because I had some tooth pain and I am going on a business trip in 2 weeks and was afraid of even more pain if I did nothing. I went to Dr. Katayev after reading the wonderful reviews. Dr. Katayev was wonderful. He relaxed me and made me really comfortable. What was also really great was that he was so non- judgmental. I have a lot of dental issues, a majority caused by my fear of dental work. I did not take care for my teeth and I lost a lot of them. Dr. Katayev did not make me feel ashamed about this. He concentrated on what we will do to take care of my teeth from now onward, instead of recriminations about me not doing the best for my teeth in the past. It was so good not to be judged. Dr. Katayev performed a root canal that was totally painless for me. I could not believe it. I was not traumatized at all. I really am still shocked at how painless and non-traumatic it was. I had this procedure done yesterday afternoon and I have had no pain at all. I have pain-killers that I don't even have to use. I know I do still have a lot of dental work to be done and for the first time in my life, I am not fearful of doing it, thanks to him. I also want to mention that fact that the nurses/receptionists/front desk were so nice and sweet. I felt welcomed from the time that I walked in the door. They were gracious and knowledgeable. How you are treated when you walk into an office is so important. These ladies were great. The office itself was very comfortable and you are offered water, coffee etc. I was also seen immediately. If you can, go see Dr. Katayev as soon as you can. If I had have had Dr. Katayev years ago, I would not have lost so many teeth. But from now on, I am going to go to him regularly to try to save and maintain the teeth I do have as well as to looking into options for replacing my lost teeth be it bridges, implants etc. I want to also note that he was not pushy about promoting other dental work or dental procedures. He let me know that it was my decision, we could have just consulted for the first visit or we could do the root canal. I decided to go through with the root canal because I trusted him to be painless after he made me feel so comfortable as well as listening to my fears. Plus he was funny. LOL Whatever shape your teeth are in, it's not to late to go and work with them. Dr. Katayev is the dentist you need to see. A great Dentist, a wonderful support staff and a pleasant atmosphere made for a dental experience I never dreamed of having. Thank you so much Dr. Katayev and your lovely staff.
Great dentist! Immaculate office, high tech office, cordial staff..
This was my second root canal procedure with Dr. Katayev. He is very professional and does a great job. As much as I don't like going to the dentist, it's really not a bad experience. The Dr and his staff are just so nice.
Best dentist I've ever been to.
It was a great visit! Love a dentist where I'm in and out so quickly, and my teeth feel so clean.
He and his staff are wonderful. I highly recommend them to all of my friends and coworkers.
Friendliest staff ever! Clean updated offices. Terrific dentist!
I hadn't been to the dentist since 2008, so I was really nervous (like full on shaking and crying nervous). The dentist and his staff were very good at making me feel calm and relaxed. I've had a root canal in the past, but this one was done quickly and with minimal pain-- I almost wouldn't have believed it was a root canal if I hadn't seen the post x-ray. Very professional and nice. It was a very good experience. I will surely be coming here regularly now.
Receptionist was extremely friendly, took the time to explain everything to be before seeing the Dr., sat with me while I signed paperwork and also offered me coffee. Dr Katayev was extremely friendly, I didn't have to wait at all took me right away. Explained everything before he did it. Dental assistant was also very friendly and gentle. Highly recommended!
This was my first time seeing a dentist in over 5 years, and it could not have been a better experience! As soon as I arrived the receptionist greeted me by name and was extremely friendly. There was virtually no wait time, and Dr. Katayev came in immidiately to introduce himself before the technician began the x-rays. Of course the cleaning wasn't the most enjoyable thing in the world, but they use a topical numbing agent to ease the discomfort as much as possible. Finally, he repaired a chipped tooth that had been bothering me in no time at all. So happy to find a good Manhattan dentist... will be back in 6 months!!
Friendly and informative dentist. He and his staff made me feel very comfortable. I highly recommend him to anyone.
I was a nervous reck - hadn't been to a dentist in 4 yrs. Process was very quick - got a cleaning and 3 wisdom teeth pulled in less than 30 minutes. No wait - besides filling out new patient form. Staff and DR were very polite. I think they sensed my nerves which may have annoyed the DR a little. 3 days later I haven't had any pain or swelling, knock on wood so far so good. I wish I was given more detailed instructions for the recovery process at home - but I still highly recommend you pay a visit.
Great, as expected. Takes all the anxiety out of going to the dentist. Highly recommend this office!
Very friendly staff. I was made to feel at ease despite being a little scared of dentists. The procedure was painless and my teeth feel wonderful after the cleaning. I would highly recommend this office.
Dr Katayev was extremely professional and easy to work with. He took my information personally rather than making me wait, saw me right away and clearly laid out a course of treatment for me. Normally it would take several visits to get done what he took care of in one 30 minute office appointment. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking high quality dental care.
It's a beautiful office and from the moment you walk in you feel very comfortable. I had never been there before and the receptionist knew who I was and was very helpful- explained how my insurance covers my visit. Dr. Katayev and the heigienest were very efficient but still made sure to explain everything he was doing and show me my X-rays on a tv screen so I could actually see what would be happening. I would definiately recommend
Great to find a dentist who has Sunday office hours.
Very friendly and professional
I wish I can give 5 stars for the receptionist. She was very very nice and warm. I made the appointment for my fiancé and she called to confirm. When we got to the office her she knew who he was right away. She was very sweet. She's a tall Asian girl that speaks russian(amazing) As for the dentist my fiancé was not too impressed. He didn't find the dentist to be friendly. He was kind of cold actually. Might change dentist.
Very good. But " expensive "
Highly recommend Dr. Katayev
I was nervous finding a dentist online especially being new to manhattan but this DDS is phenomenal!
Fantastic service, the best dentist with the most modern office ever!!
he is a great doctor.friendly and very professional. first day was awsum.
I was extremely impressed with Dr. Katayev and his staff. My appointment was at 7:00pm and the whole staff was friendly and full of energy. They made me feel like I was the first appointment of the day. The receptionist was very helpful with explaining how the insurance works and Dr. Katayev was highly professional and personable. I could tell he cared about my well being. He explained what he was going to do in a very clear way and also fully explained any problems I had. I trusted him completely, as well as his assistant, and feel that I got a thorough cleaning. I would also trust him fully with any procedures I need done in the future. You never expect to love an experience at a doctor's office, but I was so happy to find a great dentist that I can honestly say that I loved my experience there.
I usually hate going to the dentist but Dr. Katayev is by far the best, and made it comfortable and painless...would recommend him to everyone. The office is really nice and the staff was great as well.
Beautiful office!, great front desk service, no wait time...very thorough and in depth consultation.
tell you what has to be done,very gentle and understanding.Love him.both my daughters look forward to their next visit.Told my sister about him,she saw him and is Extremely satisfied.
I had an excellent visit as a new patient of Dr. Katayev. He and his staff were very friendly and made sure I was comfortable throughout my entire visit. I was seen within 5-10 minutes of my appointment time. The office is beautiful, clean and incorporates the latest technological advances in dentistry. After taking my X-rays, he did a step-by-step analysis of my teeth and developed a treatment plan to restore my mouth back to health. Although the pricing seems really expensive, I do appreciate the time he took in evaluating my teeth and providing me with information on financing options. I have to say that I've never felt my mouth so clean! I would definitely recommend Dr. Katayev.
Very friendly staff, nice office, modern equipment, and excellent dentist. Dr. Katayev seemed very qualified and performed the entire dental cleaning himself instead of leaving it to an assistant. I'll recommend him to others.
My daughter felt very relaxed and comfortable. She did not stop talking about this being the best dentist she have seen. She is looking forward to her next visit.
Dr. Katayev is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I would highly reccomend Dr. Katayev to anybody looking for an awesome dentist!!!
What an absolute professional with a lovely "bedside manner!" I'm a bit dental phobic but Dr. Katayev made me feel very comfortable. His whole team is welcoming, professional and kind. The office is beautifully maintained and stte of the art, and I will be making Dr. Katayev our family dentist from now on!
Great dentist experience!
The staff was very nice, office was clean and new the Dr. was very nice, no wait!!! Highly recommend
Upon arrival, I was greeted by such a pleasant receptionist. My information was taken and processed in a timely manner and shortly thereafter, my son was seen. I would recommend Dr. Katayev to everyone I know. His "bedside" manner with my son was excellent to the point where he was not afraid anymore and is ready to go back:-). Thank you Dr. Katayev
Dr. K was a very nice and friendly doctor. He removed two of my wisdom teeth with Novocaine and the procedure went very well. His office has state-of-the-art technology (x-rays, TVs, dental equipment). I would recommend him for sure.
The entire staff was SO nice! I've never met such a friendly receptionist, and Dr. Katayev has a great bedside manner! Especially since I was the last appointment of the day, and I was late, so they were just waiting for me. Not to mention that I got comments on how white my teeth were after the cleaning. I've already made my next appointment!
Dr. Katayev is the best dentist I have ever been to. I hate going to the dentist but somehow it's not so bad and best of all somehow he,s also painless.I had rootcanal done and was waiting for the pain and it never happened. Do yourself a favor go see him you will be hooked.
Professional, friendly and thorough. Procedure was pretty painless. Definitely a great alternative since I'm away from home.
The office is very nice, the staff was extremely friendly and the doctor was professional and thorough.
I just had my first appointment with Dr.Katayev,it was just Perfect!!! Dr is awesome,professional,gentle. Honestly i've been looking for a new dentist for a longtime now i think i've finally found one and now I will definetly refer him to all my friends.
Dr. Katayev is very efficient and professional. He did very good work with a tooth extraction and I was surprised by how rapid the recovery was.
