What People Say About Dr. Alan Timko, DMD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I transferred to Pittsburgh last year and Dr. Timko was listed on our Insurance providers list. He is a rude and uncaring doctor and someone should look into his unprofessional manner. He did my surgery and I will not be returning. I'd rather pay out-of-network rates than deal with his rough treatment and poor attitude. I would NEVER refer him to any of my colleagues because he is very moody and comes across as a money grabber. Very unprofessional!!

I've been seeing Dr. Timko for over 10 years to help me maintain healthy gums and bone to support my teeth. He also successfully performed gum surgery to cure a local gum infection I had about 5 years ago. He is most professional in his manner and possesses abundant technical knowledge and has suburb surgical skills. Dr. Timko has also given me honest advice regarding if I should get any aesthetic gum surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Timko for your periodontal needs.

Dr. Timko was great, he explained and explained the options I had to fix my teeth and gums. He did a wonderful job and I am well satisfied. I only had one problem, I don’t have dental insurance and was quoted a price. It took me several months to decide and then find the time to have my surgery done. By the time I was ready and the appointments made, the cost was increased. I had the surgery and everything was perfect. I did have to pay the increased price, which didn’t make me happy.

My experiences with Dr. Timko and his staff have been excellent. I've had good improvement in my gum health, both from treatment in the office and from correcting my tooth brushing technique. They also do a great job with scheduling. I always get in and out quickly and my appointments start on time!

I've been a patient of Dr. Timko's for many years now. I was referred to him by my dentist, Dr. Gary Carmassi, as he recommended I get some help to avoid periodontal disease. I believe that Dr. Timko's knowledge in his field is highly commendable. He, along with his staff, provide a very professional service to those of us with periodontal issues. I would highly recommend him to anyone having issues with their teeth and gums. Jim Wittler

I have been a patient of Dr. Timko since he began his practice. His professionalism is exceptional. I was previously afraid of most Dentists due to bad experiences in my childhood, but Dr. Timko is very gentle and takes time to make sure his patients experience as little discomfort as possible. With his guidance I have been able to become one of his star patients making my semi annual visits for cleaning relatively painless. I highly recommend Dr. Timko for your Periodontal needs.
