First appointment I waited an hour and was never seen. Second appointment I was there for two hours, the dentist I saw was nice but the hygienist was a nightmare. I got up and left 5 minutes into the cleaning.

He and his staff were completely unprepared. How do you not look at my X-rays and tell me what I “might” need? Unacceptable. We have been debating the cost for a month although my insurance company gave me the fee scheduleand cost. I was called to schedule this appointment and the authorization hadn’t arrived so I waited 40 minutes for nothing. No apology for there lack of professionalism. I will not return and suggest you don’t go. Ever.

I had an appointment for 10am and when I got there, there were at least 15 people there before me with 9am and 10am appointments. I tried to reschedule for a time outside of work and they didn't have availability for two months.

Really nice staff and Dr. Aknouk was extremely kind and helpful. I have a big fear of the dentist and he and his staff couldn’t have been nicer. Though the wait was long, the kindness of the staff made up for it.

9 am appointment (first of the day); office didn't open until 9:15 am, wasn't seen until 10:10 am. Dentist spent less than 10 minutes cleaning and examining my teeth. Water and polish were all over my face. Won't be back.

The office & everyone in it was very nice, however, my paperwork, once again, did not make it to the office from Zocdoc. Honestly, I do not fault the office because this has happened way too many times with Zocdoc.
