Dr. Starkman is always pleasant and professional. Had a routine cleaning by Lauren, she also was kind, courteous, and professional. No one I know enjoys a trip to the dentist, but these people make it as good as it gets. Thanks!

I have been a patient of Dr. Starkman since he open over 30 years ago. Dr. Starkman and his staff are like my second family. The have always treated very well whenever I went there. If I had an emergency, Dr. Starkman always took the time to get me in. Last October I had knee replacement surgery and couldn't have any dental work for 6 months. However, I lost a filling in December. Dr. Starkman has been very patiently working with me over these last 6 months to make sure I was pain free and my tooth didn't get infected until he could fix it. The man has the patience of a saint. He is very kind and has a good sense of humor. He has helped not only me but also my husband, son, and even went to the nursing home to help my Mom. I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks again Dr. Starkman for getting me thru this ordeal.

Wow so disappointed in this business. Made an appointment had my records ssent.I stopped in and did pepper work so on the 7 we could start cleaning.well after 3 weeks of great communication. They could not come up with a price. They Wanted me to give a blank credit card. Lol.not even a ball park figure. So the morning off still no idea of pricing. Just how stupid do I look.what a waste of time. 3 weeks for nothing.So sad si very sad

Hi Tim,

When we read this review our heart sunk.............temporarily. After reading through all the notes, emails and texts from our team member, we were struck by how much effort she put into research on your behalf. Had we know she was dedicating so much time to understand your responsibilities, the benefits between yourself and your employer, we would have redirected her efforts to our business, dentistry. In this day and age, insurance companies will not even guarantee a payment amount to the policy holder. It is rare to find an employee so dedicated to someone that she has not even met.

Everyone was great there so far. I am a new patient and only had one appointment so far. I was not happy with the receptionist though. She wanted me to leave my credit card information on file without even checking my insurance first. I understand that this is what they do and want their money if there is a difference owed but I don't feel personally just don't feel comfortable leaving a credit card on file. Especially it being a new dentist for me and the fact they haven't run my insurance yet. I clearly told her I have no problem paying a difference if there is one. She insisted on still asking me for my credit card number and everything asked if I would leave cash there. She even had a bad tone about it. They seem like a good dentist and I would like to stick with them . I will follow through with paying what I owe if they eventually tell me . However if they keep wanting me to leave a credit card on file I will go to my old dentist.

We are so happy to hear that you are pleased with our clinical team. They are outstanding. Good news is that you have many payment choices in our practice. If one does not work for you, perhaps another form of payment will.

This was a excellent dental experience. Dr. Starkman was kind, gentle and very thorough. The dental assistant was great too! I will recommend this practice to my friends.
