Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Gonzalez is an incredible dentist who makes an uncomfortable event (seeing the dentist) completely relaxing and enjoyable. I highly recommend her for anyone who is in need of dental services. Her staff is lovely and welcoming - from the moment you walk in until you leave you feel completely cared for.
She's great! The office is SUPER clean and she and the staff are very professional...every time!
Great experience with the hygienist and Dr. Gonzalez. Very friendly. Took their time. Very thorough. Clean and modern office.
I just really love this dentist - there is never a wait, the office is super clean, the staff are lovely and she does excellent work.
Moved to UES, and unfortunately had to switch dentists. On my first visit, was told I needed a filling replaced for maintenance although my previous dentist who I saw 6 months prior did not think so. I underwent the procedure and after noticed that the filling overlapped the next tooth. Several weeks later this overlap chipped off along with a portion of the filling itself. I went back to the office and was told I needed another partial refilling. This required another appt and more time off. Eventually this was fixed but they ended up charging me a copay even though this was a mistake from the original procedure. Will be looking for a new dentist.
Very happy with Dr. Gonzalez. She is very experienced, and makes sure everything is done right.
Excellent experience. Dr Gonzalez is very personable and engaged. The office is modern and immaculate. Highly recommended.
Dr Gonzalez and her staffs are very concerned my comfort and well being. She phoned me twice to check my pain and advised me what to do after major treatment.
It was awesome... Fixed the issue and has me on my way in no time.
Patricia was so patient with me. She talked ne through my entire exrtraction. I felt extremely comfortable, the soothing music was the perfect added touch. I recommend her to anyone that has any fear of the dentist, Patricia and her staff takes your mind to a whole different place. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
never go there again
Dr Gonzalez provided a very thorough check up. The monitor set-up for the patient to view the macro-photographs and X-rays is kind of amazing. When the patient gets to see the trouble spots up close, it's easier to understand why work needs to be done. The dental hygienist was friendly, professional and gentle as possible. The receptionist had my insurance information already in the system which was reassuring.
I was very satisfied. She was very friendly and nice. She gave all the attention that I needed. Just happy
Great dentist! She found all my dental issues, did a great job fixing everything, and involved me in the decisions along the way. I did a lot of looking around before choosing Dr Gonzalez. Had a less than stellar dentist before, and so glad I made the switch.
She is great!
Had to have my first root canal which was terrifying. I was very warmly welcomed and made very comfortable as soon as I called for the appointment. Dr Gonzalez talked me through the whole procedure before and during. The staff was extremely friendly and made sure I understood all of the hoopla regarding insurance and payments. It was a nice experience during a not so nice time for my mouth at least.
She is highly recommended but her front desk is not very efficient. Double check if everything is covered by your insurance.
I always have a positive and pleasant experience here, which is why I keep coming back. The staff is friendly and Dr. Gonzalez never rushes you. She takes the time to talk through any issues or concerns you have. She is professional, friendly and gentle. The office is impeccably clean and I love that they ask you to pick your favorite Pandora station so you can listen to music. I would recommend Dr. Gonzalez over and over. The best dental service I have ever received, hands down.
Patricia and her staff are always thorough, professional and personable. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
I was really happy with the way she and everyone else at the office treated me. She explained everything in details and she was easy to talk to and friendly. Highly recommend her.
Realmente saben como tratar a un paciente. La recepcionista fue realmente util a la hora de explicarme las cosas del seguro.
I always have a good experience at this office. Dr. Gonzalez is great and takes time to listen to any concerns. Great service every time. I enjoy her and the whole staff. I would definitely recommend.
My experience with Dr. Gonzalez was amazing. She is an excellent Dentist. She has restored my faith in the dental profession. I would highly recommend her to anyone that I know. She gave me back my confidence and treated me with such respect.
Through my provider.
The Dr. And staff are true professionals.
Growing up dentist were not my best friend and I really did not go unless of emergencies have had very bad experiences as a child and adult till I meet Dr Patricia Gonzales not only has she save my teeth but I can truly call her a very good friend
Amazing. Sits and talks. Answers questions. has camera to show you teeth. Had filling done and it was a fantastic job.
Fine, as always
The staff were very warm and friendly and Dr Gonzalez was awesome! This was my first dental visit ever and I left with a very good feeling inside. Will definitely go back. I highly recommend her. Thank you Zoc doc for the recommendation!
I can't say enough great things about my experience with Dr. Gonzalez. I was having tremendous pain in my tooth - I was able to get an appointment the next morning through Zoc Doc. Jenny and the staff were so kind and made sure I knew what was covered by my insurance and what I would owe.... I have never had it broken down so thoroughly before. Dr. Gonzalez was so personable and showed me all my Xrays and explained what was going on with my tooth. I never felt rushed and she truly cared about the pain I was in. Dr. Eng who administered my root canal was careful and always checked in to make sure I was comfortable (as comfortable as you can be during a RC!) He also made sure I knew what was going on throughout the procedure. I wasn't happy I was in pain, but I couldn't have had a better experience at a doctor's office! They even let me pick my choice of music during my visit to keep me at ease. P.S. The entire office was spotless - something I'm always cautious about!
I had a very great visit today. The staff and dentist were very nice and kept me well informed about everything they were doing. I have never had such a warm experience at the dentist's office.
Absolutely wonderful! She's great, put me at ease, explained everything, and was so kind. She's great! I highly highly highly recommend.
I don't typically write reviews, but I was so overwhelmed by the positive treatment I received by Dr. Gonzalez and the rest of the office staff. The office was nice and clean, Dr. Gonzalez was kind and careful to explain everything they were doing, and when I neeeded additional work that wasn't covered in my apt time Dr. Engle filled in. I would absolutely recommend visiting any of the Dr.s in this office as the entire staff was friendly and helpful.
Great communication, professional team, friendly staff!
Fantastic experience. Got a lot of personal attention from the dentist herself (who seems incredibly good at her job) the office is beautiful, and the experience was fast, high-tech, and convenient. Completely loved it! Plus, they didn't do that thing lots of dentists do now where they try to get you to buy expensive products and cosmetic services.
I found her to be super warm . She put me at ease, I look for dirty things in dentist offices they had new equipment and were very very clean. Super sweet staff too.
Everyone in this office is so lovely and helpful. Patricia Gonzalez is very patient and gladly answered all of my questions. It's a really beautiful office!
The front desk staff was wonderful. I had left my insurance information at home and they called and figured it out for me prior to seeing the doctor which meant that the entire appointment was covered. They also offered me a hot towel when I walked in from the snow storm and looked extra wet and cold...very sweet! The dentist (Dr. Patricia) was wonderful...she even did the cleaning herself! She has excellent bedside manner, made great recommendations on how to keep my lips from chapping in the future and told me about a retainer provider just in case I ever lose my Invisalign trays! She even made it a point to take photos of my mouth and show them to me so that we can compare the health on my next visit. Very cool! I'd recommend this practice to anyone. 5 stars!
She was very forceful about treatments I did not want. I would not return.
Dr. Gonzalez is fantastic. nice office, really lovely staff. i had been dreading going to the dentist but overall it was a positive and painless experience! highly recommend.
Been a little scared of going to the dentist, but Dr. Gonzalez was just great in putting me at ease! Office has a great atmosphere, and the staff is super friendly. Highly professional and very modern. Definitely will be going back to her for my 6 month check ups! =)
Great office, great staff, great dentist, GREAT VISIT!!!
Dr. Gonzalez and her staff (Jenny & Kim were the two that helped me) were a delight. She will now be my regular dentist - professional, efficient, honest. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Gonzalez is the 3rd dentist I've been to since arriving in NYC almost 7 years ago and finally I have a dentist with whom I feel comfortable. The first dentist I went to, told me I needed 8 crowns which put me off. The second dentist was ok, but the place was a bit like a zoo and not too clean which is a bit alarming. Dr. Gonzalez's office is exactly as shown in the photos, clean and modern. Her staff is really pleasant and friendly and make efforts to put you at ease. She friendly but professional and explains things to you! She told me I needed 3 crowns and I believe her because she took photos and showed me what was happening. If you need a dentist on the Upper East side, you won't regret coming to see Dr. Gonzalez.
Really friendly, no wait. I was also shown photographs of my teeth and had problem areas explained. This was really nice, I've never had this sort of explanation provided.
Everyone in the office was friendly and extremely helpful. They do a great job of explaining everything that's going on and walking you through all the procedures. Highly recommended!
