Dr. was fine. However, the receptionist was awful, rude, nasty, and very unprofessional. She gets on your name they way she talks on phone and in person and treats you like you owe her something. She acts as a prosecutor!! Shethreatens you and keep telling you that all conversion are recorded.

It has reminded me of the experience i had growing up in a less democratic country: no customer orientation, long wait time, not even an attempt to try and build confidence and less than desirable facility. The doctor has spent timeduring my visit trying to train his assistant on how to use their system than he has ever spent on me. The best was when he has spoken about my wisdom teeth... which never have existed, i don`t even have the root for them, very clearly visible from my X-Ray, even for non dental people.... Coming to this country i got a lot of warning about poor quality of dentists, but i did not want to believe it. Now i know. I don`t even understand how this place has a license, smelling like cheap coffee and having the Xray machines on the hallway... The treatment plan they have pulled together was not addressing my situation, but rather a money making machine for them. Luckily i have found a more decent place in the meantime which treats me as i expect in a 21st century democratic country as s customer.

He seemed more concerned about completing the procedure than if client is comfortable. He didn't pay attention to how uncomfortable I was.
