It was great!!! The staff had the best bed side manners I have ever seen from any doctors/dental office. They were very good at making sure I was comfortable and very attentive. The receptionist even checked in on me while Iwas in the exam room waiting on the Dr. Malek. She felt that she didn't properly introduce herself when I arrived due to a lot patient traffic coming out of their visits, which is something I was really impressed with. The Xray tech and hygienist both did an excellent job at making sure I was as at ease during the xrays and cleaning. And Dr. Malek made sure I was well informed on what his concerns were, what needed to be done, and what the next steps should be.
