Both Dr Massiah and Soeurette the Hygientist were incredibly attentive and thorough during my entire visit. They explained what has going to happen during each procedure. The ladies at reception/ office managers took care of all of my questions with ease. Thanks for being my new general dentistry practice!

I recently visited New York to attend my son's graduation, and on my second evening there my front tooth broke off and fell out! I was mortified to think of spending my week there with no front tooth, meeting my son'sfriends and mentors. I was 9 hours from home and my own dentist and needed to find emergency medical care--on a weekend no less. Dr. Messiah came to my rescue. I called and he got back to me immediately, went out of his way to make me feel relaxed, and saw me right away. The appointment was painless and I felt like I was in good hands. My tooth was restored and my week in NY went on as planned. Dr. Messiah is wonderful, he is a talented dentist and has a great "bedside' manner. I highly recommend him. Also, his entire staff is a lovely group of people, helpful, capable, and kind. Thank you, all!! Nancy

I loved both visits with Dr. Massiah's office, though I didn't see him directly either time - once he was out and I saw his fill-in who was wonderful, and the other time was a cleaning so I saw the dentalhygienist and Dr. Massiah for a moment. Everyone in the office is lovely and I highly recommend it.

First I want to say my husband have been a patient over to Dr. Messiah for over 10 years and is always satisfy with his service. I finally book my first appt. after 8 years. The entire staff was very professionaland friendly. The service was great and informative. You can tell that they take their job serious and want nothing but the best for their clients. Also, one advice , I highly suggest for you to fill out the paperwork before your visit it makes the process quick and fast, if you are not sure about something they will adjust the paperwork for you when you go in.

Dr. Massiah was a good doctor, however, I was unhappy with how his office handled various things. I asked for my dental scans and pictures to be sent to me and it took them four days to send it. I hadto call back multiple times before I got both. I was also not informed that I was out of network even though the front desk manager told me she knew a day before my appointment that I would be charged an extra 10% copay.

I had an appointment with Dr. Massiah yesterday evening. I had a really late appointment scheduled and ended up running late. Everyone on the staff was pleasant and polite. Dr. Massiah was jovial and literally went through and explained everything.If you are hate super friendly doctors and staff then you may want to go somewhere else. But personally, I really enjoyed my visit and would reccomend his office to everyone.

Fine experience when I was there. They call/e-mail/mail me a lot about coming in again, which is kind of a turn off, and I told the office I moved and wouldn't be back. Also got billed for something that I guess wasn't covered a few months later.

Dr. Massiah and his staff were phenomenal! When I arrived for my appointment, I was promptly greeted by the receptionist and given a tour of the office. They had my online check-in forms printed prior to my arrival, which was ahuge relief. Before my exam, the doctor and hygienist made a point to introduce themselves and ask me how I was doing; I really appreciated the personal touch. The office and facilities were clean and comfortable. I was a bit apprehensive going into my consultation--It had been 18 months since my last check-up. However, Dr. Massiah was extremely personable and encouraging. His exam was thorough and honest, and I felt well informed of both the problems and the solutions. Dr. Massiah is the absolute BEST!

Dr. Massiah was very friendly and so was his staff. His office provides appointments later in the day so I was able to come after work. I had to wait maybe 5 minutes to see the Dr. and my appointment toget a filling only took a maximum of 10 minutes to complete. It was an overall great experience, I even recommended him to my roommate and I plan to use him as my dentist from now on.

I am hesitant to be honest about how much I loved my experience in Dr. Massiah's office. If word gets out about how great his practice is, everyone will want to see him, making it harder for me to get anappointment in the future. Nonetheless, I'll admit that this was, hands down, the best dental experience I've had. Dr. Massiah and his entire staff made me feel comfortable and welcome. They were considerate, patient, and knowledgeable. I can't recommend this office highly enough.

Dr. Massiah was great! His bedside manner was helpful and he clearly explained what was happening as he reviewed my xrays. His staff was also particularly helpful and good. Unfortunately, ZocDoc was wrong when it said he takes my insurance soI ended up having to switch to another dentist. But even after I switched, his office took the trouble to send me a reimbursement check of their own volition. I'm sad I can't go back to him because the experience was very positive.
