Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Rashkind is very professional at his job. He is observant and a keen listener. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who needs a — 5 (Star) dentist.
Happy with the dentistry. But one of the front desk people had refused tell me by phone whether the dentist was on schedule, and was rude about it. I called back and got the other assistant, who told me right away that he was on time. I had to ask because once I was made to wait a whole hour and then told he still had four patients ahead of me.
The hygienist is great. Didn’t see Dr Rashkind more than a minute or so last time, because there was nothing wrong, but the time before that I was told I needed a touch up on a seal in my permanent retainer, and he did it right then and there. I like these guys.
Tells the truth. No sugar coating.
Short wait, polite staff. Everyone knows what they are doing.. we talked about what I needed.
There Absolutely Worst Dentist imanigable...He should be sued, really, horrible experience and work Ever....!!!!!
He is really good! The best dentist ever work there! No pain.... Wait time is okay though.
Dr. Rashkind is always polite, professional and thorough and deals with you patiently even when he is pulling a tooth he explains what is being done and why.
He was very gentle and kept me informed on his process as he worked on my teeth... he has a sense of humor and I felt comfortable with him. I'm taking my son to him in 2 weeks
I found him to be very professional and a good dentist who was very courteous and thoughtful. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a dentist. I didn't have to wait too long to be seen either.
Dr. Rashkind is veryskilled at his profession. He is patient and takes the time to make sure you are comfortable and in no pain before he proceeds in his work. I had a wisdom tooth extraction today and Dr. Rashkind started the procedure at 3:50pm and by 4pm he was done. This included me being numbed a second time to make sure I didn't feel pain. Wallah I was done and relieved. I have had horror visits to other dentist which has permanently scarred me. But with Raskind he puts me at ease I must say. I would recommend him to anyone. The wait was leads than 10 mins and the extraction took 10 mins, in and out. I couldn't be any happier. I still don't like going to the dentist but if I have a choice only Dr. Rashkind is touching my mouth.
I loved it
Competent, present Dentist. Assistant was great at cleaning teeth.
He was very understanding and didnt make me feel bad for my panic moments during my impression. It made a difficult experience easier.
Dr Rashkind was very pleasant when he entered the room which made me feel comfortable right away. He took the time to explain everything including my consultation visit with the periodontist and the plan of treatment they were both proceeding with. I can say I believe in stability and now I have found a home for all my dental care. Thank you Dr. Rashkind and Dr. Brenner
Nothing but the best Dr. Rashkind was very professional and polite had a tooth pulled and didn't realize he had pulled the tooth and was finished.I highly recommend Albee Dental to everyone.
Dental hygienist was not very thorough as compared to my previous dental office. Did not take her time and I was done in under two minutes.
I was rushed through the appointment and x-rays. The doctor was then only with me for about 5 minutes, did a very cursory examination, and informed me that my insurance doesn't cover de-scaling. I had to ask him back into the room to ask questions that I had, and he didn't follow through with the promises he said he would contact me about.
He answered all my questions, he was patience and discussed my treatment plan
Been a patient for a long time and he's always been great. If he moved his practice an hour away... I'd still go to him.
Great Dentist. Highly Recommend Him
Dr. Rashkind is knowledgeable and has a steady hand. The work was thorough.
I've been a patient for a few years and have yet been disappointed. All my services have been done quickly and thoroughly. Very professional.
Everyone at the office was ver friendly and helpful. Great experience. Dr. Rashkind was patient and answered all of my questions.
Excellent. He helped me alot to get rid of my dental pain with a good plan. I'm feeling better due to hos professionalism and expertise.
Excellent, very nice. Have been going to him for years and even my daughters since they were young. Very patient and I really feel no pain from visits. Comfortable environment. Receptionist very nice as well.
This was our first visit with Dr. Rashkind, therefore the rating in on a first time visit.
Dentist did review X-Ray and explain his finding. He just was needs to be done.
Outstandingly professional and friendly .
I have been a patient of Dr. Rashkin since 1997. Needless to say he has earned my trust . My daughters pediatric dentist said she has 4 cavities and to fill them would be very expensive. It did not feel right. Even though she is 11 years old Dr. Rashkin was kind enough to give us a second opinion. She did not have cavities or need any work done. He even Gave us some great advise on how to handle he orthodontic situation. He is patient and kind with a great bed side manner. Needless to say we are his patients for life.
I didn't have an appointment, but I came with an urgent issue and they gladly fit me in and not only assessed my issue (which wasn't was bad as I thought) but also did a cleaning and let me know that I needed a filling and that I should see the periodontist about my gums. Dr. Rashkind was very nice and explained everything thoroughly and made sure all my questions were answered. I think I found my new dentist.
He is worth the wait! I wish the waiting room was bigger but he is worth the wait!
Comfortable, Educational And Satisfying. ??
The front staff was very professional and nice however the Dental Hygienist was very aggressive with cleaning your teeth. I understand that you have to see a lot of patients but a teeth cleaning was over in about 7 minutes. The experience was slightly painful and uncomfortable as if someone is rushing aggressively to get you in and out without much care. The x-ray technician was lovely and the doctor was kind however probably the worst cleaning experience I've ever had. Won't be coming back.
Always a great experience with Dr. Rashkind. He is very knowledgeable and professional, always willing to answer questions (no matter how dumb they may seem) with an honest answer. I appreciate his honesty and professionalism.
As I've said before, this dental establishment is excellent. Less than a 10 minute wait. Cable TV in the exam room while they work on you and professional, courteous service.
I've been going to Dr Rashjind for over 8yrs and I can Honestly say I am Extremely satisfied. Him aswell as with the Entire Brookltn Dental Staff. They have Always exhibited a High Standard of Care Along with being Pleasant, Courteous and Professional.
Dr. Rashkind was very nice, but I will not be going back to this practice, primarily because the dental hygienist who did the cleaning completely butchered the inside of my mouth. I have never been in physical pain during a dental cleaning before, but this cleaning was so painful that after a few minutes I had to sit up to see what was wrong only to discover that the inside of my mouth was FULL of blood. The hygienist was very rude about it, not apologetic at all, and did not try to explain or prepare me for the pain ahead of time. I had to stop the cleaning midway though. She said it was because of excess buildup, but that does not explain why she was stabbing the insides of my cheeks with the tools. Additionally, I will be seeking a second opinion because Dr. Rashkind stated that I need 9 fillings. While this is certainly possible, I have never even had 1 filling before and I do find it surprising that suddenly I require 9.
Great personality and bedside manner. Is happy to answer questions you have. Almost always an upbeat personality, never too serious which I liked.
He was very kind and professional and I'm so grateful he took great care of my tooth extraction. Absolutely no pain and he was quick. I have more to do and I honestly can't wait to see him again because I know he is going to do an amazing job like he already has.
I have been going to him for more than 10 years. I like the service there. Very nice staff as well. There are no lies or hidden costs.
My cleaning was extremely quick and I felt that the dentist did not do a thorough job at looking at my teeth. I have had pain and sensitivity for months, but he simply recommended cosmetic offers and said everything looked OK. He didn't comment on most of the issues my dentists normally bring up or show me the X-rays. I even felt that he was distracted by the TV while in the office with me. Although his staff was very nice, I won't go back.
He has very good bedside manner & when he starts the work , he gets it over and will give a break if needed.
He was very professional and also gave me the best advice on the work that I need done.
Dr. Ronald Rashkind is a very kind man. I am one of his patients who is deathly afraid of the dentist , but Dr. Ronald Rashkind made me feel comfortable. I'm looking forward to my next visit.
He was great and very knowledgeable and kept me informed about everything
Since the office was moved to Bond Street, it appears the merge between two offices didn't go so smoothly and whatever inside issues taking place between staff is affecting the patients. I have been going to this dentist for years and something is different now. I felt tension in the office. In addition, the office wait time has increased. Prepare to wait, even with an appointment. We waited 2 hours to see the doctor. I was told that the wait is due largely because there is only one x-ray technician. One x-ray technician for 3 or 4 doctors, I suppose. So, your doctor could be waiting for you, but no one can make a move until the x-ray technician finishes? Perhaps adopt a better system? I became disgruntled with the service that I started to look for another dentist. However, I say that to say that Dr. Rashkind's service remained the same. He stayed the professional while other things seemed to be falling apart. My recent visit was a little better. Please don't misquote me: The staff has always been cordial. We have always gotten along and apparently there are a few new faces and staff seem to be making it work. However, they need to work out a few inside procedures.
It was professional. They suggested treatments, and also told me about copay for everything so I won't be surprised.
Very Thorough , very Sanitary and knowledgeable of his practice.
Dr. Rashkind was great. Unfortunately my experiences with reception is always very dissapointing. They should do a better job with the way they treat the patients.
EXCELLENT. VERY PROFESSIONAL AND UNDERSTANDS MY FEAR AND DEFINITELY WORK WITH ME TO MAKE SURE PAIN IS MINIMAL.
He was very professional with his expertise and opinions on whatever I needed to know about for the very best of service.
It was horrible!! The staff is so unfriendly, everyone acted like they hated their jobs and did not want to be bothered. The doctor himself was very unfriendly, was not to informative had to drill answers out of him. The Hygenist was the only friendly one, she need to find a better place to work. Totally awful, it was a kid you were seeing for crying out loud.
I think the visit was needed & Dr. Ronald Rashkind is well experienced in his work. Great job!!!
In essence, a pleasant and quick visit. The staff are receptive and helpful, and the Dr.--one can tell--values professionalism.
My visit was good and bad. The xray technician was rude and the lady who did the cleaning was in a rush and didn't finish my cleaning. She told me I had to make another appointment to get my teeth polished, while she hurried out of the office, which makes me think she didn't do a thorough cleaning. It was hard enough for me to find time for this appointment and now I'm supposed to come back. My only reason for coming back is I like Dr. Rashkind. Hes always friendly and efficient without making you feel rushed.
He was GREAT!
I came early and the still saw me pretty much right away. The staff is professional and friendly and quick. Could ha e more waiting room because some people had to stand but I guess they're popular for a reason.
It was very friendly and he is very funny
Dr. Rashkind was very polite, efficient, knowledgeable, professional and warm. He listened to my concerns and offered solid advice. He's cool, totally recommend him. Now, Front desk staff could use more training in customer service and office etiquette, the staff members were unfriendly, talked about personal things loudly in front of patients and seemed uninterested in making the patients comfortable. The xray technician, was a borderline bully, he barked orders, listened to rap music on his hand held device, walked around like he owned the place with a smirk on his face.
I thought he was pretty accurate! I would have liked for him to tell me more about the other problem areas in my mouth, but I have a follow up appointment, so we shall see....Overall, he was caring and even offered me payment options for procedures that aren't covered by my insurance.
I had a cleaning, Staff is pleasant enough. The wait is usually at least half an hour though.
Overall expectations excellent!
This is an extremely busy office since they take walk ins I had to wait a bit. I had an extraction. The procedure took about 5 min. All in all things were fine!
Excellent dentist. Fixed up my jacked up teeth.
Today as in the past Dr Rashkind was personable asked pertinent questions and awaited response. Dr Rashkind explained the procedure and the steps entailed. Dr Rashkind is professional, pleasant and does very good work.
Very professional,excellent bedside manners. He keeps you informed about the work being done.
My experience with Dr. Rashkind was good. He explained me clearly the procedure and answered all my questions. He made me feel very relax.
The guy fixed my dental problem. Absolutely recommend.
Dr Rashkind has been my dentist for a good number of years. He has always treated me with the utmost professionalism.I would recommend him in a heartbeat.
They were professionals and confident in their abilities. I did feel the guy seemed a tad bit rushed but that is my only complaint because he matched my front tooth for filling and in not happy with the color. I will get anything else done but, I will go to cosmetic dentist for front teeth.
I had a great visit
The actual visit was quick and easy, got more work done then I expected today. The only bad thing was the wait.
He was rude.
Awful experience overall. Would not recommend. Waited 30 minutes, only to be given x-rays and sent back to waiting room for another 20 minutes. Then listened to the dentist complain about how poorly the x-rays were done by the technician. After just a quick glance in my mouth a recommendation was given by the dentist, which the technician stood by giving him dirty looks. I'm getting a second opinion. Never coming back!
Dr. Ronald Rashkind was very kind and gentle with me and this was the best experience I had at the dentist. I barely felt the needle.
Had a great experience in this office will continue my dental care in this office.
This was quick and easy. Some people wait a very long time for an appointment, an mine was done the same day. Pleased with the quickness,an the Dr was good.
as a person who fears the dentist he actually made it very comfortable along with the nurses who are also nice. Just don't go from the hour 1 to 2 p.m because the chew is on and may cause salivation haha
He was very kind and patient in explaining my procedure. I felt like he was my uncle when he was just reassuring me.
Visit went fine. I ask a lot of questions and Dr.Rashkind has no problem answering them. Clean. Staff is professional and friendly. There is a very awkward smell in the front entrance of the office. Unbearable at times. I feel sorry for the employees that work the front. I am grateful of there speedy service because the back smells 100% better. I hope someone takes action on that ASAP. This is my primary dentist now and I recommend others.
Dr. Rashkind was amazing. Very nice...and very good at what he does.
I waited for over 2 hours to see someone, I don't even think this Dr. was there. Staff was very friendly about everything.
He did the worse thing: sabotaging healthy teeth!!!
The actual dentist and hygenist were great, couldnt have asked for better. The waiting room was a bit run down and I wasnt sure if it was going to be like that inside, which it wasnt. I will continue using them - they were friendly and professional.
Was told there was no wait, then waited an hour and a half for the quickest dental visit I've ever experienced (front desk slightly rude and uninformed). Suggested what seemed to be extra work - getting a second opinion.
