    Recently it became more difficult to get full financial details from reception. Either the receptionist has been told not to give me the full range of options for my discount plan (Cigna Network Access) or did not know & wasn't interested in finding out. Only after asking repeatedly did I find out that I had a more affordable crown option (the one I selected), even though the options and prices were on a printout in my file.

    The best dentist I ever had. I am known to be a drama queen when it comes to dental treatment. All my life I was scared of dentist until I met Dr.Hema Patel. She is soft spoken, calm and very patient. She is knowledgable, explains the procedures and issues very clearly to the patients. She is so good even my 3 year old loves her regular cleaning appointments. Thank you doctor. - Rricha

    I went in to have a check-up, as I'd experienced some pain after a tooth chipped. Too much had chipped off; I needed a root canal. Came in the next week for it; 90 minutes, in and out. Of course it's uncomfortable (I'm still sore!), but this will fade. I opted to wait a few weeks on the crown, as I must pay directly. The dentist didn't push me (hard) to hurry the crown.

    Dr. Patel's office is amazing. I have always been afraid of the dentist, but Dr. Patel and her team are caring and wonderful. I do not "love" going to the dentist yet (who does?!? :-), but they sure have made me not "afraid" any more. I cannot say enough wonderful things about them.

    I do not mean this as a criticism, merely as perspective. The dentist was a little hard to understand, because she spoke very quickly. I know what was involved in my procedure from research beforehand, but if I didn't, I would have asked her to repeat a few things.
