    Goodman, Dr. Steven A.
    terrible he filed my tooth down to nothing, the cap did not last either and he does not give his patient quality time. He is very concerned about money more than his patients and he ruined my tooth! This was a few years ago I warn everyone STAY AWAY!

    Allan Kaye DDS
    I have been going to Dr. Kaye's office for routine teeth cleaning for several years. I don't have dental insurance and he offers a decent price for self-pay.
    99% of my interaction is with the hygienist who performs the teeth cleaning. When she's finished, Dr. Kaye sticks his head in to "examine" me. I say that in quotes because he barely looks into my mouth. I feel as though if he could look into my mouth through binoculars or a telescope he would do so. My brother goes to him and says he has the same experience of Dr. Kaye barely looking. Perhaps the hygienist is so thorough, and he trusts her so much that he doesn't feel the need because she said that there appear to be no problems.
    In any event, I'll continue to use this office for my routine teeth cleanings. I usually don't have to wait more than 5-8 minutes past the appointment time and the office is clean and professional enough. Dr. Kaye may be a wonderful dentist for non-routine issues but I've personally never experienced so much as a cavity, so I simply can't review him for other dental issues or problems (I guess that's a good thing!). If they come up then I'll add to this review.

    Mark Genco DDS

    Run, don't walk. Away that is...My girlfriend went to him on several occasions. Came across as nice and caring and we were happy at first. But the signs were there that this was not going to be a satisfying dentist/patient relationship.  He has no receptionist or hygenist. That means when he's doing the dental work, he had to stop to answer phones or see who came through the door. While working on my girlfriend he had other people in the other rooms and stopped to work on them and then came back. Jack of all trades, master of none does not work well when they have their fingers in your mouth.  In my opinion, the office is dingy at best. We questioned the cleanliness of the mirror he was about to put in her mouth and his response was to put it in his own mouth.  Totally absurd way to try to prove his instruments were clean.  Music was way too loud, couldn't even relax. When cleans the teeth he pushes bleaching, probably to hide the stains he leaves.  What was really weird was that he quickly got too personal telling about his sons problems, his ex-wife problems, issues with his brother, girlfriend's personal business, and things way too intimate.  When confronted with this he actually said he thinks he's friends with his patients. Way too much information.  He should keep his personal matters personal. Completely unprofessional. Worst is he replaced a filling and things went wrong. Had to go to another dentist who said he went down too deep. Genco thought otherwise and showed me the xray showing it was not too deep.  Problems was, that was the "before" xray, not an "after" xray.  Ended up having to pay a specialist for a root canal.

    I've been going to this dentist since late 2012.  I love him.  The staff are all uniformly lovely and kind, and they try really hard to work you in quickly if you have an emergency. 
    Further, I called on behalf of my student (I'm a professor) and they took *her* really quickly because she had tooth pain, even though she wasn't a regular client of the practice.  She is one of those who is afraid of dentistry, and she reports that the whole office was very good and kind to her.
    Dr Scaffa is sensitive and kind; he doesn't want to hurt you, and he doesn't want to cause you financial distress.  I trust him.  He worked with me to replace a crown, and the temporary crown kept breaking, but Dr Scaffa worked me into his existing schedule to replace the temporary crown multiple times, so that I wasn't walking around with a hole in my mouth.
    The communication is really good; I am given really good instructions on what to do if (say) I need to adjust my brushing technique on my molars.
    I can't imagine going to any other dentist now.  My graduate student (mentioned above) now goes to Dr Scaffa (from Queens!) and my husband goes to him too.

    Mcintyre, Dr. John S
    It was not a positive experience. We waited about 20 minutes before the surgeon arrived. He appeared rushed, did not acknowledge us, and talked to his office staff about how many classes he had been teaching that day and had to return to later. Contrary to being told the procedure would take approximately 2 hours, it was over in about 45 minutes. That day the staff was not friendly and the assistant was rude to me. My daughter was brought into a room that I was able to view from the waiting area as the door opened and closed periodically. At that time I heard and watched the assistant with my daughter at which time she sounded compassionate and caring. From what I observed the process was much different from the many surgeries that I, as her mother have had. The surgeon performed the surgery in his street clothes; the ones he was wearing when he arrived. My daughter was sedated but I saw her head come up from the chair at one point. Once the procedure was completed there was no recovery time given and the surgeon went directly to his office. He came out and gave me 2 prescriptions, an anti-biotic for a slight infection and also one for pain . I was also given a copy of post surgery instructions regarding what she should drink, eat (which included dairy) etc. My daughter was very groggy which is natural. She did not remember the surgery itself but was not happy that there was a television on when she was brought in and that was playing "Criminal Minds" and kept on while she was being prepped. She had a lot of bleeding and was given perhaps 4 gauze squares which was insufficient and resulted in a lot of blood she could not hold in and spat out on the front steps of our house when we arrived home.  She experienced little pain and no swelling however the antibiotic she was prescribed conflicted with the post-op instructions stating she should have dairy such as ice cream. As a result my daughter experienced severe nausea throughout the rest of the day and evening which made this a miserable experience for her. After her first complaints of nausea I contacted the pharmacy who informed me that dairy products were counter-indicated with the anti-biotic she was prescribed. In fact there was a label on the bottle that was barely visible stating the same. I was astounded that he had chosen this prescription which was in complete contradiction with his aftercare instructions. My daughter had a follow-up appointment the next week. I decided not to address the above as the staff had previously been defensive when I questioned the difference in time frames they gave regarding the actual timing of the surgery. This experience was not about the patient but about the needs of the doctor and his busy schedule which resulted in rushing the surgery and making incompetent decisions. I should taken my daughter to the oral surgeon her dentist recommended. I would avoid contacting this oral surgeon at any cost.

    Central Park West Dentistry
    Very friendly staff and competent service but VERY high prices.  My dental insurance was depleted for a full year after only 2 visits and over procedures that would not typically be classified as costly elsewhere.  I also felt that my dentist "encouraged" me a bit too much to get (expensive) root canals done as soon as possible.  A year later, the root canals have proven to be unnecessary as my new dentist resolved the issue with a less invasive and less costly treatment.

    Corbett, Dr. William G.
    I love him. They worked with my insurance and didn't cost me much at all. He's got two more partners but I don't know their names. They have all the modern equipment. These are young dentists. It's not like going to a dentist office and got stuff from 30 years ago. They make the tooth there. I have a missing tooth, instead of putting a cap or a temporary and going visit after visit and they send it out to be made, you go in, put two hours and sit you in the chair. He fits you for the teeth and he works it on his computer. He pushes a button and he's got a machine that makes the tooth and pops it in your mouth. One visit. They are great. They're all kids to me. I'm getting older and my teeth are getting dull. I asked them about the tooth bleaching and that's $500. He says, really you pay the $500, it has to be repeated. You go get a good bleaching kits in the drugstore and you get the same results. He's really good.

    Brenman, Dr. Steven H
    If you have to have teeth extracted, this dentist is of the best. It is truly painless and he and his staff can usually calm fearful patients. After your gum is numbed, he pulls the teeth very quickly. The new dentures that were made are fine now but when they first came back from the lab, the lab mistakenly made them as partials instead of full dentures, new impressions were taken and the denture was fixed. I had to go back for a few adjustments until they fit just right and Dr. Brenman and staff were very pleasant at all times. The price for each denture was much more reasonable than at other dental offices.

    Jonathan Gerstman DDS

    Excellent Doctor great bedside manner and reasonably priced. Had problems with my teeth and he went above

    and beyond to send me to a specialist to correct major problems with my gums. I think he showed a interest in

    staying connected to my periodontist to help me achieve overall great dental health. I highly recommend this doctor

    he is very nice and affordable.

    I found him to be very good. I thought he was very thorough. The people in the office were very nice and helpful. He had very modern, updated and state of the art equipment. You don't have to wait long for your appointment. You have to wait two weeks for an appointment which is not bad.
