My experience at this office was unsatisfactory. Overall, I felt that there was a lack of transparency between Dr. Eric Foretich and me before and after the procedure. As someone who has never been through a surgical procedure, I felt deceived and now traumatized after I had my wisdom teeth...more

We are sorry for your poor impression of our practice. Dr. Foretich is a caring professional and an excellent surgeon. Dr. Foretich spends too much time with his patients hence the wait time. Most of our patients are understanding once they see the Dr. As far as trusting his decisions, I hope your recovery went well and there were no problems post surgery. We wish you well and hope you may reconsider this review. Regards, Mary Caprino, Office Manager
