I am very sensitive, so the cleaning had some painful pokes, but the but the distracting video, the anesthetic gel, and the bite block all helped.

My gums and teeth are very sensitive, especially to cold, and the numbing gel really helped. I liked the TV; the volume could have been a bit louder (and the subtitlles were in (I think) Russian -- wtf!)

Dr Sheetal is super patient and nice to talk to and took really good care of me. I would consider myself as a difficult patient as I have been terrified of dentist chairs since forever - but she was very patientand addressed all my concerns. I had my tooth extracted and cleaned - and fortunately the pain was not that bad after the extraction. She is a through professional when it comes to her work as well as friendly and has that human touch when it comes to giving advice (something I highly value). I also got a proper list of foods that I could eat after extraction and proper post treatment instructions from her - overall a good experience. I am yet to go for two more fillings to her.

I respect doctors in general for the medical and emotional support they provide during the process. Unfortunately I had a bad experience. We go to a doctor when we have a problem or feel the need to have a checkup -atleast that was my case. Dr. Sheetal Gokhale was very unprofessional and insulted, scolded and talked to me like I was an irresponsible person for a few initial stage cavities/caries. Moreover to make matters worse, she assumed that I had a lot of time and just wasting my time. She lost her temper thinking people who take a break from work are just morons and lazy. In reality my close relative just passed away and I was also going through an annulment and took a break from work. I felt she wrongly judged me as a person. She shouted at me because I had some cavities/caries that needed some care. Everyone including the receptionist heard her yelling. Absolutely embarrassing and horrible experience. I had tears in my eyes as I walked out. I kept my cool throughout and didn't say anything much. I don't know if there is a better place to raise this issue. In any case, I believe a patient's medical problem should be confidential and private, and not brought to the entire clinic's notice. Kindly provide the feedback to the doctor so that she can provide her best service to every patient she meets.

Dr. Gokhale planned to fill one of my wisdom teeth, and gave me enough painkiller to get past my resistance, but after at-least-apparently-sincere attempts, she admitted she was unable to fill or extract my tooth -- my tooth is fused tomy jaw, so she referred me to a specialist. I don't think I was charged.

Didn't believe me when I said I'd need more anesthetic until I was writhing in pain. Did a pretty good job of getting me to relax. Could use a bluetooth headset; dialogue of movies was hard to hear (had to keep volume low in order not to disrupt phone calls).

Maybe I had more stuff on my teeth,and maybe I was feeling more sensitive, but my cleaning seemed to hurt more this time, even with what the hygienist called "numbing gel". I may need to ask if they have stronger stuff next time.

I am a wimp when it comes to dentists and I feel totally comfortable with Dr. Gokhale and her staff. They really take care of me and my teeth in the most thorough, unhurried, and nurturing way.

I have been very happy with Dr. Gokhale as my dentist. My son got braces with Dr. Gokhale and it was a very positive experience. We had very little problem getting appointments since Dr. Gokhale has weekend appointments as well. Sheis approachable and I value her professional opinion. The staff are courteous and helpful as well. Definitely glad to have Dr. Gokhale as a dentist!

Awesome dentist and staff. Even had to go back a few days later because of extreme pain, and they were able to squeeze me right in.

She, and her assistant, were super thorough in her explanations of what work (& dental habits) she recommended, and also on the priority & timeline of those things. I've had dentists before where I questioned if they were trying to sellme procedures I don't need; I've had others where I felt they were trying to push through so many patients that they didn't do a thorough job. This was definitely not the case with her, on both counts. I was quite pleased with my visits. I'll be back again.

Dr. Sheetal is really friendly and sweet. She made me feel comfortable, gave me information about what we need to do without pushing me in any way. She didn't rush through even after my cleaning was done, but instead talked tome and left me with a very positive impression.

The staff gave me full x-rays when I asked not to have one and did not sign the consent form. The dentist diagnosed six cavities when they are micro-cavities that did not need to be treated, and I did not havecavities for the last 20 years. They are dishonest: booking extra appts and procedures. The dentist also spent very little time cleaning my teeth (no scaler used at all) because she was spending the time pushing procedures on me. The result is I have to get another cleaning next week!
