My visti was ok yesterday...But is very unfortunate that for as much as I had a plesant visit I may not be able to return. I can not afford to get the work done that is recommended....It's very discerning but what can I do. I can not afford to take one of your payment plans so I will have deal with my teeth the way they are. Thank you

I wouldve rated it higher but i was in the chair way too long. Doctor mustve worked on 6 other patients in between me getting cemented for my root canal. That really annoyed me.

Dr ram is awesome and she makes a visit to the office less frighening. I had a root canal and it didn't even hurt. The only thing I didn't like is their inability to properly fit a crown.

I had 2 appointments. one for myself and the other for my son. The cleaning was on time and great job by Melanie ( the hygenist) as always. I was done with my cleaning. Waited a long time for the dentist, she came in and requested 2 additional xrays. The tech was timely with completed the xrays. Again, awaiting the dentist to come back and provide additional feedback on the new xrays to no avail. My son was done with his cleaning at this point and I was still waiting on the dentist. After awhile I had to leave, my son never saw the dentist for an exam and I never received the feedback on the additional xrays she suggested. I then heard another patient complaining from another room regarding the service. It is my understanding that the dental staff was short-staffed. However, I believe the flow of the dentist could have been a LOT better. The hygenist and tech were very apologetic on the wait time. I did appreciate that.

Every time I've had a dental appointment, the service has been great. Always prompt, go in when I'm scheduled to, painless cleanings and reasonably good fillings or other drill related work. Hey, they're never totally comfortable, but for what it is, I can't complain. I've had several other dentists and it was much worse. Apprehensive Patient is the place to go.

I used to be super afraid to go to the dentist but since I began coming to this place, I no longer get panic attacks before the dreaded shot nor do I need the gas mask in order to relax. I'd say it's a trust thing, and once you find a dentist that you trust; stick with that person. I had a root canal and this last visit was just a breeze; the crown.

I've recently had my first root canal of which I was rather nervous. My dentist along with her assistant did a wonderful job keeping me calm and are truly genuine. I don't feel judged for the work I need done which I can't say for previous experiences in my life. The office environment is friendly and professional and the staff are patient and respectful. I also took my six year old son for his first visit and he did a better job than me. I have been and would recommend everyone to this office!

My experience at this dentist office was terrible. The staff has little to no care for their clients and the doctor is abrasive and to busy to have a 2second conversation. The service was lackluster and the office operated like a start-up highschool project. Won't go back. Very disappointed.

I have not been to Apprehensive Patient since last year. It was great to have the same young lady to perform the routine services for me, since we had talked last year. It was an overall great experience and she was helpful and informative.
