I thinknits fair to say, only go if you speak his native language. It was a bit difficult to understand whathe was saying because his sentences werent complete and also his accent is thick. Also he said i had to something to me teeth but i got a sexons opinion and it was pretty clear that it was more optional than "dangerous if not done". Kinda felt like all he wanted was money. Either way he knows his stuff but communication was pretty weak. O

Receptionist was friendly and took me back right when I got in, even though I was 10 minutes early. Dental hygienist was very friendly and made me feel completely comfortable. She gave me a lot of advice on my dental care and genuinely seemed to care about my health!

I would highly recommend this doctor! He's amazing and an excellent professional. Sometimes you may have to wait 20 minutes if the previous patient stayed longer than expected. Definitely recommend it! It was hard for me to choose the right dental service after very bad experiences in other places in Manhattan so this place is the one for me!
