I was very pleased with my first visit to this office, even though I was initially nervous to have a root canal. The specialist Dr Laslavic (sp?) and his assistant were super nice. They chatted together during the procedure which really helped me to relax. He explained that he only does "no pain procedures" so to be certain to raise my hand if it bothered me at all. It was painless and everything went really smoothe. I am so pleased with the nice people from check in to check out at this office. I plan to change over to here as my primary dentist office and highly recommend them. Thanks!
The appointment went fine except for a small hiccup. It was getting someone to call me back to get the appointment that was disappointing. Left message for call back Friday 8/31 and again @8:15am Tues 9/4. It took 2 calls from the Sorrento Valley office to patch me through to someone to book the appoint. for Wed. the 5th.
I had work done that might not have been necessary if I had been given the after care instructions for extraction at Sorrento Valley.
Although their services take a little getting used to (periodontal and endodontal techs or specialists only visit the Mira Mesa site on certain days or you have to travel to them), I'm very pleased with Dr. Zakaraya and her assistants - conscientious, pleasant, caring attitudes. (Even brought me a teddy bear to hug last time I had to get novacaine shots!) Only complaint is sometimes having to wait up to 1/2 beyond scheduled appt. time.
The staff makes the visits pleasurable and makes me feel welcome (and not just a paying patient). Unfortunately, they do not handle my wife's situation weheras she needs complete extraction and upper and lower plates.
