This was my first visit. My only quibble is that they didn't accept the Zocdoc online forms and made me fillout new ones. Everyone was very professional. I will return. While I am not a zealot about this, I am aware of X-ray practices in other countries, so I especially ++ appreciate that they take a sane approach to X-rays--they will discuss with you how often they are worth doing, and will even let you sign a waiver to refuse them, rather than plopping you in the X-ray chair and insisting that annual dental X-rays are mandatory for every patient in America, as other DC practices have done to me.
