Patient reviews for Dr. Payam Pourahmad-Haghighi
Very professional, knowledgeable and friendly staff.
It is nice to have a team that is knowledgable and takes the time to explain what they are doing and what it all means.
First visit, impressed! 5-star treatment, prompt, professional, knowledgeable, felt very comfortable, received excellent insights on preventive care based on my x-rays. Will be making this office my dental home!
Nice and friendly staff
Very professional and excellent customer service.
Great office. Loved him and the ladies at the front desk.
Well, I have to admit going to dentist has always been an issue for me. This office however has changed my feeling and I really like the staff and nice dentist (Dr. H). He explained everything to me and let me know what i need to get done showing me the x-rays and images. I hope the future sessions will be as pleasant as this first one. 2 thumbs up.....
Well, I had my cavities filled a few days ago. The procedure went GREAT!. I must say I was a nervous wreck. But I knew I was in good hands with Dr. Haghighi. He was so gentle at times I did not even he was working on my tooth. He uses the tooth colored kind, not that silver-mercury stuff. I can't even tell my tooth has a filling. I am looking forward to my 6 month check up! (I have never said that before)
I had most amazing experience white Dr Haghighi office. I loved the friendly and professional staff. The office was very clean and modern and he was very painless and caring doctor. Highly recommend him to all my friends.sure was a 5 star experience.
Dr. Haghighi is knowlegable, caringand and precise. I enjoyed my visit with him. He addressed all my concerns regarding my oral hygiene and the atmosphere of his office is excellent. I would highly recommand Dr. Haghighi.
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this practice. Both the doctor and the staff are helpful, understanding and friendly. The diagnosis and procedures were explained fully to me and I was clear about what exactly is being done on me. I felt so relaxed and at ease that at some points I totally forgot that I am at the dentist. I highly recommend visiting this practice for any kind of dental needs.
My dental appointment was awesome! I love that the tools were opened in front of me. I know all was cleaned just for me. The xrays were right on the computer in the room, so cool. Dr. H pointed out what I was looking at. Only 2 cavities, small ones at that. But he caught them. I go back in a few weeks for the fillings. Great Dentist and the techs he has are so nice. Go see Dr. H and you will agree.
Dr. Haghighi and his team were wonderful and professional. The office is very clean and seems to be up-to-date. I liked it when they opened the stilled bags in front of me before placing stuff in my mouth. I strongly recommend this office.
Dentist and techs seemed to be rushing through the procedures. Barely any explanation of what was happening.
The staff is very friendly. The Dentist exam was very comprehensive. I am very pleased I found this office.
Love them ALL. Everyone is super nice!
Everyone was very friendly and knowledgable. The doctor was attentive in asking if i was comfortable or experiencing pain. Definetly will recommend!
I went for dental annual cleaning. They did usual X-ray for a new patient and told me all the cavities I have. They also added on extra floride gel. I came home satisfied only to find out my teeth were not cleaned and still had black spots on their inner side which could have been removed. They also need to put stuff in mouth to do dental X-Ray which is not cleaned properly and without disposable cover which raised my hygiene concerns.
I've been pleased with him every time. I like his personality and manner, and the office is clean, state-of-art. Some people try to tell me that "all dentists charge too much" or "do unnecessary things to make money." But I have NEVER felt that way with this Dentist. He has been careful and honest to show me what's wrong, positive about the things I'm doing right, fair and understanding with pricing. He's a good man.
Dr. H and staff are, without exception, always pleasant and professional.
I needed to have a root canal done. I had been in severe pain for weeks. I had suffered with these two teeth because I don't have DENTAL insurance. Dr. Haghighi and his staff tried in numerous ways to assist me in saving my teeth. However, I wasn't able to come up the the funds. Though the extraction of the two teeth took longer than it should have, the dentist stood by me. He had several patients waiting in the waiting area for their sheduled appointments. He didn't stress out on me. He completed the job with excellence!
Overall the Dentist was very good, he was great in giving advice and providing a through cleaning. However,the Dental Hygienist was not very gentle and took an excess amount of Xrays. I also feel that I got overcharged after the appointment (with bills of expenses after a general cleaning - the bill looked excessive as well).
Over all I was every happy with my experience with Payam Pourahmad-Haghighi, DDS, MS. I would highly recommend this office to my friends.
Dentist is great and very thorough. Plus a very pleasant and helpful staff.
He is an excellent dentist. He did a wonderful job on my 9 teeth. As a previous dental assistant and working with few different dentists and offices, I really liked Dr Haghighi's work and his stuffs. I strongly recommend him to my family and friends.
Doctor Haghighi is so personable, communicative and friendly. He is an excellent dentist and I have been going to him for almost two years. The staff there from the receptionists to the hygienists are also very good.
Attentive and professional. I recommend
He is very professional and has perfect bedside manners, he really listened to me and explained everything in details. I will definitely go back there again and recommend him to all my friends .
I got 4 fillings and it only took one hour. Very fast. I'm happy because I'm sensitive to pain and it barely hurt at al
I thought it was a little weird how many X-rays they took but id rather the doctor be thorough so that's okay. The hygienist and Doctor were both very nice. He was Frank and told me exactly what I needed to know so we could pursue the best treatment. After 3 bad experiences with dentists I'm so happy to have found him
Great experience with quick service and very friendly staff.
He was careful to avoid hurting me and to explain everything. He seems highly professional yet very easy to talk to.
Best doctor visit I have ever had! Staff were very friendly, doctor well Informed me about my condition. I booked it on the same day. I went there around 12noon and I was the only patient waiting.
Very friendly and professionally-run office. Staff made me feel at ease. I give the doctor points for telling me what I need to know, unlike some previous dentists I've been to who only told me what I wanted to hear. Everything was carefully explained in terms I could easily understand and treatment plan was formulated during my first visit. I had an extraction performed on my second visit: it was completely painless, and my recovery has been quick, with no complications and very little post-op discomfort. Highly recommended!
Thorough during exam took the time needed to explain what procedure was needed. How I would feel before during and after, immediately performed on where I had pain without causing me further pain. He was extremely professional, courteous, compassionate. Clearly and expert in his field.
Outstanding. He patiently explained several options for fixing my toothache and helped me select the best one for me & my budget.
The receptionist was very pleasant and helpful. The first assistant who took me to the room and got me set-up for the dental visit was also pleasant and explained what we were going to do and answered any questions or concerns I had. Liza the dental assistant was made aware about my "phobia" of dental procedures. She was patient and understanding. She took her time while taking the x-rays to make the experience more comfortable for me. Dr. Pourahmad-Haghighi was professional, gentle, and patient with me. He comforted me because he was also aware of my fear. He took extra time to explain things to me. He was thorough. I highly recommend him and his staff. They all worked together well and made my visit a good one.
He is a very good dentist, lots of knowledge and patience. As he is working on the tooth he explains the steps and makes you feel very comfortable. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a Fantastic dentist.
Dr. H was fantastic. I went in for a cleaning and to get cavities filled. Prior to my appointment, I was terrified of the dentist. With my previous, family dentist, cleanings and fillings (with novocain) were painful. It was a completely different experience with Dr. H. The cleaning was quick, easy, and painless and the fillings were done with care and were also painless. If you are afraid of the dentist like I was, I highly suggest making an appointment with Dr H.
Outstanding. He explained everything, my options and charted a course of action! Excellent team supporting him.
He is a very professional dentist, a very good one. The staff are really nice. I will recommended to family and friends. Even tho, going to the dentist isn't my thing, he did a good job.
Wonderful bedside manner, and great visit. Staff was wonderful as well. Would absolutely recommend hm.
MUCH too rough on gums and teeth. Wouldnt ease up even when he knew I was in pain. Made it seem like it was MY fault it was hurting. Also he barely cleaned my teeth! Lazy and unprofessional. Do NOT go to this dentist!!!!!!!!!!! WASTE of time and money
Payam Pourahmad-Haghighi, DDS, MS I love him he is very polite. He listens to his patients and makes the best recommendation. He has a very caring and professional practice I felt welcome the very first day of my appointment. As a patient with limited health insurance the doctor didn’t hesitant when I ask him for a discount rate. It a crucial necessary procedures to accomplish I couldn’t afford he really help me. Now I can see my longevity in his practice. Thank you,
Excellent doctor who knows what exactly he is doing. I did a major work but during a month of treatment, I feel at ease. Best dentist I have ever seen so far. I haughty recommend Payam to any one!!
Professional, patient, pleasant. I was concerned to hear about the number of new cavitites, but he took his time to explain and show using mulitple images why he made those diagnoses. When I returned for the fillings, he showed me the actual cavitites. Maybe gross to some, but fasinating to me. He took the time to educate me and again to show me where the problem was. He did an excellent job filling the cavities. Minimum pain. Highly recommended, no question.
I have been seeing Dr. Haghighi for about a year now. His staff is very courteous, and the wait time is usually short - I don't recall waiting more than 20-30 minutes for each appointment. Dr. Haghighi has a warm, respectful, and intimate manner. He recently filled a chipped tooth I had he did a marvelous job. But the thing that stands out for me is his knowledge - he understands all issues/conditions, and always suggests a remedy.
The service was excellent and professional. The staff treatment was cordial. I can always expect a great service at Dr. Payam's office and that is what I always get. --RB /Gaithersburg.
I was very nervous about the procedure, but Dr. Haghighi explained every detail and discussed all my options with me. Between that and his expertise, it was a breeze! I was comfortable and very well taken care of.
