I would avoid this place like the plague. Had a billing dispute and both Diane and Mary were very rude about a charge for a service that the patients main dentist completed a week prior. Diane hung up on me, and Mary was plain rude. Great job losing $2700 revenue over a $67 charge. I hope the dentist sees this! Run, run far far away!
We are sorry to here about this issue, unfortunately with HIPAA regulations we cannot discuss or respond to you regarding another patient. We have no record of you as a patient. We would be happy to address this situation if you would like to call the office.

Dr. Dorfman performed a bone replacement surgery, so I can get a replacement molar. I was apprehensive prior to surgery and Dr. Dorfman and his staff eased my fears. They explained the procedure and I felt confident with Dr. Dorfman's skill level. There were no complications with little to no down time. I have two more minor surgeries and I will return to Dr. Dorfman's office for both procedures!
