What People Say About Dr. Phyllis Merlino, DDS

Profit driven - this office is part of the reason over half of US citizens do not have dental insurance and can't afford to see the dentist. As if that wasn't enough, she talks about her exotic trips and things that she owns. If you enjoy being talked down to and having your kids yelled at by a dentist (as if the trip to the dentist wasn't already enough) then by all means come and visit this office. Much better choices in Staten Island. All the signs of a fledgling office are here.

PROFIT-DRIVEN, DIFFICULT-TO-DEAL-WITH DENTIST PUSHING UNNECESSARY SERVICES. She's got an attitude problem and a chip on her shoulder apparently, being a difficult person to deal with, speaks to children and parents with a bad attitude, unless of course $$$ is involved. Do you like pushy sales tactics? How about being yelled at when declining to x-ray preschool children with no signs of having to do so? How about being pressured and questioned at every visit after already declining? Phyllis
