Dr. Vakharia was wonderful. I haven't been to a dentist in a long time, and I was really nervous. He was extremely compassionate and made me feel very comfortable. He was clearly very conscious of the fact that I was ona budget--one of the women working there gave me a very detailed explanation of how my insurance worked and how much I'd have to pay for various things, and he was sure to explain how he could space things out in order to minimize the amount of money I spent. It was also the least painful dental cleaning I can remember (and that seems especially impressive given how long it had been!).

Found Dr. Suresh Vakharia on Zoc doc and recommended him to my wife. He took care of both of us and showed us our problems. We use to go to another dentist that rushed his dental work on us. Dr. Vakhariatakes his time, listens to you, and has patience. We’re probably going to keep him as our dentist permanently. His staff helps with the dental process and are super friendly.

Very lucky to find this dental studio. I was away from my original dentist and visiting my friend at Columbia U. Unfortunately my onlay falls off during Thanksgiving day, and not many dentist accept appointment during this time. For so longI've been afraid of going to dentist, afraid of new possible cavity. But this time is pleasant and fast. The interior is very bright and warm, I felt welcomed during the visit. Since I filled out the form online, I didn't have to wait at all. Then Dr. Vakharia recemented my onlay in no time, and explained to me future choice. Grateful for this experience. Will come back if I have the chance.

Knowledgable and passionate with oral care, I felt very comfortable with Dr. V. He and the entire Broadway Smile's Staff was very professional and thorough with my insurance qualifications and which treatments were best for me. I would absolutelyrecommend him to any friends living in the area (or out of the area for that matter!). He is a great dentist and one of the good people.

Dr. Vakharia and his staff are excellent! Everyone is very friendly, attentive and explains every step of the care they provide. Dr. Vakharia met with me in his office after my cleaning to review my x-rays and discuss next steps. Ireally like his conservative approach and feel I'm in very capable hands. Clean and pleasant office.

Great dentist visit!! I usually don't like going to dentist but so far I will continue to visit Dr. Vakharia. He did a great job explaining to me everything that was wrong with my tooth. Took his time going step bystep before doing any procedure this first time I feel so comfortable in a dentist office. Very clean office and great staff!!

He seems very knowledgeable in this area. The place is a small office with just Vakaria, his wife and an assistant working there. Everyone knows what theyre doing including the assistant who spent a lot of time explaining my xrays, futuretreatment plans, and recommended behaviors based on how my teeth look. I will definitely be coming back.

I really like him! He made my daughter feel comfortable by talking us through everything he was going to do, including what would happen during our next visit; and, he was kind enough to talk with me about my students andshow me some really cool math strategies that I was stoked about sharing with my colleagues. I'm looking forward to learning some more!

I strongly believe he has the best intentions, is very social and attentive during treatment. But I had a very unpleasant end to my visits with him. He left a root canal half way done, rushed a temp filling that fellbefore I even got home because he "had to do to a dinner party. " Second time he rushed the job doing minimum work and left another temporary treatment in literally under 10 mins. When I called him out on it, by basically saying that if I make the time to come to his clinic he should make the time to care for my needs, he conered me in front of his staff and other patients about how he didn't appreciate what I said, pointing out another patient as an example of what the type of patients he prefers (embarrassing) and basically telling me that I should go find another dentist. I work in finance and travel often so It's hard to make time for much so when I do, please respect my time as well. So today I left his office with a broke front tooth from an accident, after being disrespected in the middle of his waiting room to find another dentist that can do his job.

Dr. Suresh Vkharia is the best dentist I've seen in a longggg time! Right off the 1 train, great location for uptowners in Harlem. I have very sensitive teeth and hate going to the dentist but Dr. Vkharia made the processeasy and painless. He also was very thorough in explaining everything to me. I've never had anyone actually review detailed pictures of my teeth, it was like seeing them for the first time and it I gained a much better understanding on what's going on in there. I also like that he didn't try to push work on me that I didn't need to get done. It's so crazy the last dentist I saw told me that I needed this and that and Dr. Vkharia was able to tell me what I needed vs what I could get if I REALLY wanted to, which was appreciated because budgets are real. Definitely recommend if you're looking for a new dentist!

Good balance of very personable and professional. He and his staff went over every x-ray and movement to make sure I understood what they were doing, and nothing felt unnecessary. Even just from a simple cleaning my teeth feel amazing, soI feel good about scheduling an appointment in the future if I need any more extensive work done. Good sense of humor and very warm personality, probably the most positive dental experience I've had in Harlem.
