The procedure was well explained and the care was first class. The entire staff is professional, personable, and courteous. I would recommend Dr. Carazola to anyone. The procedure was completely painless as I followed the instructions to the letter. They have been accommodating with all of my follow-up's.

I am so happy that I found Dr Carazola. He is very knowledgeable but is able to use language that a layman can understand. I needed gum surgery and I had deep pockets. Now that I have followed through with his treatment I have normal pocket depths. He even called me the night of my surgery to check on me. This office takes it to another level. Very classy.

What a horrible dentist !!! He is one of the worst dentists I have even met. He is a old dentist but anyway I don't even care how old he is but his hands were shaking while he was checking on my teeth. Not only he was clumsy, but he collected all the money up front, while I have dental insurance. It's ironic, don't you think? And at the end I paid $240 cash and waited for my insurance reimbursement.
