Thank you for making it so easy. Dr. Sarka, you and your staff all made me feel very comfortable and valued.
My experience was amazing even though I had complications and had to have another surgery shortly after my first. Dr. Sarka and is team are all so caring and showed a lot of compassion towards me. They all made me feel so comfortable, especially when this setting can be nerve racking. Thank you so much!
As usual, everything started with laughter to ease the anxiety. Skilled hands, efficient staffing. But I hope i do not need to come back, but will come willingly when advised.
No complaints. It was an excellent experience. Linda Trask

I had a great experience with Dr. Sarka a few months back so when it was time for my son to have his wisdom teeth removed, there was no question about who we would choose as his oral surgeon. Dr. Sarka is very professional, respectful, and caring.

Dr. Sarka is one of those rare doctors who does excellent work AND is down-to-earth and personable. I wish he was a primary care physician because I would switch to him in a heart beat.

I suffer from panic disorder and was extremely terrified of having a tooth extracted. I met with Dr. Sarka and immediately felt his compassion and willingness to listen to my irrational fears and anxiety. He reassured me and I felt that I could put my trust in his professional hands. The procedure took literally minutes and I actually giggled near the end...relieved that my heart rate was behaving and that I had chosen such a skilled Dr. The whole staff made me feel safe and I am very grateful.
in Old Town, ME |
I needed to have difficult wisdom tooth removed because of the proximity to the nerve running under the tooth. After getting a snarky reception from whoever answered the phone at the Bangor area oral surgeon, I called Dr. Sarkas place and was greeted warmly and set up an appt. there. Best decision I could have made. No numbness, no swelling and it is healing well. Best Oral surgeon and staff around!! My daughter needs hers removed soon. We will travel to Dr. Sarkas for the surgery.
