Verified Patient Reviews
I have had my confidence undermined years ago, by a specialist humiliating me because of teeth condition, some of which was not my responsibility, happening in childhood. With aging, I have to consider good choices to preserve my natural set with a partial denture. Dr. Simkha believes in education, which is the real confidence booster, and, her chair-side manner was so thoughtful and caring, I left the office feeling I had inherited a gold mine! What a relief to have found a gentle, firm, knowledgeable dentist when I will need quite a bit of work done. I immediately thanked the friend who referred me and will bring my daughter in too.
Came in because my temporary filing came out. Fortunately, my porcelain filing arrived today. So they put that in after cleaning the tooth. It looks very nice compared to the silver fillings I'm used to. I hope it lasts a long time.
I came in early and was seen before my actual appointment time. She removed and old filling and did a mold for my tooth for the porcelain filing replacement. I have to come back in a couple weeks.
Dr Simkah ??The best. I would recommend her service.
It's only my 2nd visit but I love the staff and Dr Yelena. There was an issue, or some confusion with my insurance but both myself and the staff called my insurance company to sort it out. I even received a call from them the next day to let me know that I do not have a deductible to pay, which was a relief to hear. I came in for a cleaning for myself and my children. They took care of us quickly and we were on our way. They did an excellent job cleaning our teeth and explaining anything we were curious about. I will continue to visit their office for my families dental needs in the future.
She is great!!! Visit was thorough and was seen during my lunch hour
Dr. Simkha is a wonderful dentist and I'll be going back. It had been a while since I visted a dentist, but I don't know why I waited after seeing her. She is very nice and spent extra time with me cleaning my chompers. Her staff is also friendly and professional. There was some confusion with my insurance and they called in and cleared it up for me. I would definitely recommend her!
Great dentist. Thank you!
Dr. Yelena is great! this was my second time seeing her. Her staff is very friendly and the dental hygienist is informative and did a great job cleaning my teeth. They take x-rays right when you get there and Dr. Yelena will review them. She did a thorough exam on my teeth and gums. I'll be there in 6 months to see her! :)
Yelena Simkha is amazing!
Dr. Simkha was great she took really good care of addressing my needs and I left with a nice clean smile and a new perspective of what it takes to have great oral care. I will be returning.
Very professional, friendly staff. I will recommend my family and friends.
A true professional and very friendly
She's Great, Everyone There Treated Me Great.
Dr. Simkha is the absolute best! She takes her time evaluating and diagnosing so you can totally trust what she advises. She is kind and makes sure you understand what the issues are and how to resolve them. She came up with an idea for my teeth that no other dental professional had and I'd consulted with about 15 dentists many of whom were colleagues of my then-husband, a periodontist!!
I had a pleasant experience while getting professional help. Also the atmosphere was very inviting. Thank you all
One of the best dentists I've ever been to! Quick, efficient, clear, and sensitive (I have terribly sensitive teeth!).
I've been going to Dr. Simkha for years. She is the best dentist.
Excellent patient service
Dr.Simkha take great care of me always a smiles and great dental care. She goes out her way for her patients. I will reccomed her to everyone!!!
Yelena is the first dentist I've been to in Manhattan (and I've been to several) that had a spotless and clean office. It's beautiful and new and everyone was really professional and helpful. She's a keeper. I will definitely be back.
my wisdom tooth was pulled out with no problems. I am very thankful
Very pleasant experience. Highly recommend to my friends and family.
Professional, clean office.
Great communicator. Always a satisfying visit. You can always rely on Dr. Simkha to come up with a solution no matter how complex a situation.
Thank you Doc, for helping me keep up with my oral hygiene. Dr. Simkha is a specialis like no other!
Very professional and comforting manner. Excellent experience
The office is very inviting starting from the receptionist through the dental assistant up to the dentist quality care as Pamos as can be and always followed up with a smile toothbrush and toothpaste I actually look forward to my visit
She's the best
Is the best dentist for me
During my visit, she told me information about another patient which is a HIPPA violation. Her and her staff's overall manner was rude. She didn't seem to care that I was in pain either, but cared about what insurance would cover. This was my second time to her during which I had changed insurances and she had been rude about the original insurance the first time around too. She likes rich patients. Don't go to her if you are not rich and have more than basic dental needs.
She's superb! I've already recommended many of my co-workers to her practice and think she is divine.
Victoria and Yelena were very thorough throughout my examination. They provided detailed explanations on what they saw and provided recommendations. I look forward to my next visit in 6 months.
Nice people. I just wish I didn't have to remind them that my appointment was at 5:15...at 5:45 I still hadn't been formally attended to. Otherwise nice facilities. I will return.
She is a wonderful dentist and she take time to listen to the patient
She is always great about explaining what needs to be done, how and why. Dr Simka keeps checking in during a procedure to make sure you are comfortable and no feeling any pain.
I think she is unfriendly, judgemental with her diagnosis and made me feel my dental problem is not fixable. Staff very unfriendly as well. I will never recommend her.
It was very pleasant and ran very professional
Always patient and professional. She listens and answers all your questions. She gives you all the possible options for your problem and carefully explains treatment plan.
Dr. Simkha was great! She took her time with me and explained every thing she planned to do for me. The results were great & I will be seeing her again in six months!
Polite, fast and efficient. Love this dentist
Dr. Simkha is an excellent Dentist and comforting. She takes pride in her work. I went in for a root canal and did not feel a thing. She was recommended to me and I would definitely recommend her to anyone else I know in need or a dentist.
Kind, and compassionate. She explained the alternative very well and I am happy with her expertise.
Very very good, and professional.
Professional, knowledgeable about my insurance plan and the best way to work with it, respectful of my requests and questions. Efficient and confident in her practice.
Had a wonderful cleaning! Definetly coming back and have already recommended to a friend!
Thorough; Dr. Simkha will always provide a solution, no matter how complicated a situation.
Dr. Simkha has a beautiful clean office and I was seen immediately. The only problem was that I submitted all my medical forms online, but since they did not know how to retrieve them from Zoc Doc I had to resubmit when I came in. I notified Zoc Doc who will be providing them guidance on how to do this going forwad so it may not even be an issue much longer. Her dental assistant was also very nice and welcoming.
Really nice office with friendly staff. I waited about a half hour for the appointment.
She is an absolutely wonderful, very nice dentist. I love forward to more visits. I'm glad I switched services to get.
It is never enjoyable to see the dentist. Dr Simkha is kind, considerate, and professional. She prioritizes her patients and makes time for emergencies even when her schedule is packed. I highly recommend her.
Very nice office, very friendly staff and doctor. Seen as soon as I arrived for my appointment. Great experience
Dr. Simkha is an excellent dentist! I highly recommend her to all my friends and family. Personally I travel all the way from San Francisco to see her.
I'm extremely terrified of the dentist, and had yet to find a good one in NYC... until i met Dr. Simkha! She was absolutely amazing. Supportive and understanding, and even cheered me on during my root canal. i'm so happy i finally found a dentist that i feel comfortable with and can go back to! I typically don't write reviews, but she is worth it! If you're deciding which dentist to visit- definitely consider her! You won't be disappointed!
Dr. Simkha was excellent and her staff made me feel welcomed.
My visit, like many in the past, was pleasant and accomplished what was sought.
Dr. Simkah is unlike any other dentist. She makes sure her patients feel comfortable and she is also very personable. Dr. Simkah is a very gentle dentist and every time I leave I feel beautiful and happy. I don't ever dread going to the dentist anymore!
Dr.Simkha very professional, she explain every procedure. Office upscale , clean, pleasure to be a patient and recommend her to friends and family.The most important the final result is amazing .
Dr. Simka is thorough and very professional. Her staff is helpful and gives great service!!
I got to meet Dr.Simka and she reviewed my x-rays and gave me feedback but the person that actually cleaned my teeth was a younger looking verison of Simka. Usually this type of thing angers me but I actually liked her. She was very thorough and cared about whether or not i felt pain. Annnnd they used the non-latex gloves, which is great, because I'm allergic to latex :) My main issue was that wait. They overbook!
I never liked going to the dentist before. Dr. Yelena made the whole thing super easy and even made handling the insurance a breeze.
she was a little rough in my appt and made me feel bad for not going to the dentist for some time
it was a pleasant experience at this practice...
Dr. Simkha is a solid, knowledgable dentist. At this appointment, I was there in advance of my 9am appointment, but the office wasn't even open until 9:10am, and I wasn't seen for a while after that. I expect to be seen promptly, not wait for the office to open up after my scheduled appointment time.
I only went for a routine checkup but I feel like she knows what she's doing when it comes to routine checkups. I also got a free toothbrush and paste so perhaps i'm positively biased! Great location in manhattan so easy to schedule a visit if you'll be in the city some time.
she was very professional and i didnt wait at all..great staff as well
I came in for a regular cleaning and exam, so can't speak to other services. But it had been over two years since my last cleaning, so it was going to hurt. Doctor Simkha made sure I understood this and was very calming and patient during the cleaning to help ease the pain. Everyone in the office was friendly and helpful . I showed up early for my appointment and they were able to get me in early. Overall good experience, definitely going back.
I had a pleasant experience. Dr. Simkha went above and beyond to insure I received the necessary care and addressed my medical concerns promptly and professionally. I wish there were more doctors of her caliber. Overall, the entire staff is genuinely warm and welcoming.
Front desk staff is not very professional
Very disappointing. This office specifically called to confirm that they took my insurance. They stated that they did, a few weeks following my appointment they claimed they could not honor it and charged me out of pocket. Additionally I opted not to get an X-ray as I had recently had one at my home dentist, however when charging me out of pocket they charged for the X-ray, insisting that it was part of the appointment cost regardless of if you get the X-ray or not. It felt like a complete scam. Additionally the office is dark and cramped, not welcoming at all.
Very honest about careful. Explained everything to my satisfaction and recommended good treatment.
Great doctor - took care of my concerns thoroughly!
Dr. Simkha was wonderful. It was my daughter's first time at the dentist and as we sat in the waiting room, quiet tears started to fall as a result of her anxiety. Dr. Simkha was gentle, she quickly quieted my daughter's fears, she explained everything she did to my little one before she did it and as a result, my daughter had a very positive experience. While she doesn't see many children, I encourage other parents to consider using her services.
This visit was pleasant as usually .
Dr. Simkha was absolutely wonderful but what really made the experience were her two assistants. They were both very friendly and put me completely at ease which I hadn't expected as someone who avoids the dentist like the plague.
Basically she just wanted to sell me all sorts of things.
She was the best dentist I've seen so far in NYC. It was refreshing!
Dr. Simkha is very professional, I came to her in a lot of pain. I didn't see my dentist for a few years because of a bad experience I had with him. Dr. Simkha listened, examined my mouth, and reviewed my x-rays. She explained to me the situation and showed everything on the digital pictures. She did my root-canal within 20 minutes, I didn't feel any pain at all. I really liked the professionalism, from both the doctor and the staff, they made me feel comfortable. I will highly recommend Dr. Simkha to family and friends. I am happy to find a dentist who is caring and gentle.
I saw Dr Sinkha for a routine cleaning, but it was my first time with her. She took some standard Xays and immediately started telling me about how since their wasnt a crown on one of my front teeth, it could break..then she showed me pictures of a patient of hers it supposedly happened to.. (she hadnt even looked in my mouth yet)..after she looked in my mouth she says "Oh" and takes some of it back due to my bite. anyway, she tells me I needs a filing and a wisdom tooth pulled and sends me off after the cleaning (without a referral sheet or any information about a Dr which could see for the extraction..I had the ask the receptionists. I went back today for the filing and the assistant who seats in the room doesnt speak to me, as if Im not there..she checks her cell phone numerous times and then has to be reminded what to do by the dentist, in front of me. When Dr Simkha comes in she asks me about the extraction and I say I didnt do it due to lack of information when I left and she says she can pul it herself. Yada yada she fills the filing and I have to ask her which tool she is pulling.. I got to the filing and the tooth pulled and am never coming here again.. (I checked the info she told me with my sister who is an orthodontist in LA, before going to this appointment by the way) There was just an extreme lack of bedside manner and I am excited to find another dentist that treats their patient's like people :)
She's amazing! you're in great hands with Dr. Simkha!
Excellent dentist !!
she's quick, kind and very professional. i would recommend her to anyone (especially people who are very busy during work days and appreciate a quick visit in and out).
Great. Very professional. Didn't scrape/check teeth with sticking you like other dentists I have seen. Relied more on xrays and visual exam for cavities. Use of sono cleaning was a little painful but nothing untolerable. Regular cleaning was great. Didn't try to sell me anything unneccesary. Very nice hygenist and office staff. Overall very satisfied!
Dr. Simkha was extremely professional. Provided informative updates and kept me in the loop while providing service. Warm personality in a clean office. Very accommodating and also gave recommendations. Highly recommended.
Dr. Simkha was the best dentist i have ever been to. i am deadly afraid of doctors and she made me feel very comfortable. She is very professional, organized and a sweet doctor. I will recommend all of my friends and family. Thank you so much Dr. Simkha
She was attentive and put me at ease, answering all my questions.
Dr Simka uses the latest technology to provide comprehensive care. She is in tune with her patients and is an excellent dentist. I am a health care professionsl; she is Highly recommended!!
Excellent dentist. Highly recommend.
Loved her! felt very comfortable and attended to. She is very knowledgeable, polite and have great hands! i did not feel any pain what-so-ever! highly highly recommended ! Already told one of my co-workers to go see her!
She sees patients with the door wide open. I don` want everybody in the waiting area to listen to my discussion with my dentist. She was very rough cleaning my teeth beacuse she was in a hurry. She didn`t ask once if i was ok. The teeth were cleaned well, but my gums were bleeding a lot, and that never happened to me before, not like that. She took x-rays only to tell me that she can`t fix my cavities, because i am wearing braces. It wasn`t easy finding another dentist in my area who takes my insurance, but i never wanted to go back to her.
I liked her. Down to business.
Highly experienced professional with much expertise in her field. Very precise in her treatment and analysis.
excellent indepth analysis
The entire staff are very friendly. I was seen right away, I had to get a root canal and she fixed it right away! Dr.Yelena Simkha was very kind and professional though out the whole surgery, she talked to me step by step on what was going on. I will be returning again and will also bring my daughter. BEST dentist I've ever seen.
Informative and positive experience
Dr.Simkha was great, very professional and extremely helpful and gentle. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a good dentist. A+
My experience with Dr. Simkha was excellent the office was very nice and clean, the staff was very pleasant and she fixed the problem that I had quickly, she was very patient and understanding financially. I have nothing but nice things to say about this experience She made me overcome my fear of the dentist and I will refer my family and friends to her. thank you Dr. Simkha
I give DR Yelena on a scale 40 to 90% I give her 100 because she is a doctor who is calm sensitive and careing, She cares if you have pain ,she is on point when it comes to any situation u have in your mouth and she will fix it right away .She takes her time and she does an excellent job now I got something to smile about thank you DR Yelena you are the best.
Dr. Yelena Simkha is very professional and she gets right to the point in helping you in what ever you need.I highly recommend her and i will be a life time patient thank you Dr. Yelena Simkha.
Dr. Simkha was most considerate. There is a lot to be done with both 'crowns' and fillings. I would like to withold my final comments when the work is finished. So far so good.
Dr. Yelena Simkha was a bit too rough when cleaning my teeth, and she cut my gums. It seemed as though she was in a rush to get the appointment over with. Furthermore, she did not take the time to explain anything.
Very good, first visit was excellent so my cleanings are done here every time since.
Horrible experience, I took my daughter to see doctor Yelena and all the doctor and her assistant did was talk about y did I want to schedule an appointment for Saturday when she needs to go out somewhere but that it was fine if I cancel my appt she would charge me $ for canceling my appointment, then she when on telling me how expensive the service would be that I should call my insurance and ask to enroll in another plan so I can get more $ for coverage, therefore I felt disappointed I know the fee is a concern for the doctor but she show no sign of concern for my daughter this was our first time there to fast to talk about $$$ through the whole visit.
Dr.Simkha took the time to explain me everything, I had a really great experience with her.
She is very polite and explained everything so that I am informed. Def going back and would recommend to everyone
Dr. Simkha spent only about 10-15 minutes giving me a teeth cleaning and could not perform fillings at the same time. Otherwise, she got the job done and I was able to make an appointment on short notice.
Very knowledgeable. Fixed me up good.
Dr Simkha is very knowledgeable. She explained everything that was going on, and even had me hold up a mirror to point out what she was looking at. Definitely recommend.
Dr. Simkha was great, and the reviews on the ZocDoc website were accurate! She was professional, but friendly at the same time, and I was able to book a follow-up appointment with her within less than a week! I will definitely recommend her to family & friends!
Excellent! There are no other words
Very friendly at the front desk. Very nice doctor.
