I went to Dr. Koslin in 2009 to get my tmj correct. During my surgery he decided it was the best time to take out my bottom wisdom teeth, which then lead to a major infection because my jaw was wired shut and I could take care of them properly. He also took too much of my jaw bone out and now my teeth do not align. It was a waste of time to get this painful surgery done. It didnt correct my tmj. It gave me another problem and soon I will have to get it fixed and it definitely wont be from him.

Scheduled implant to be done.Had to reschedule appt.due to illness.Just before rescheduled appt.- was told I may have leukemia and began testing. Koslins office called and left voicemail to remind me of appt.- I hadn't yet contacted them to advise I would need to reschedule again when Koslin called me at HOME that night-yelled at me for 10 min about not calling to confirm, scolded me for wasting his time and the time of his other patients.AMAZINGLY UNPROFESSIONAL,HAUGHTY AND RUDE. TOTAL TRUTH

Daughter went to him with swelling/pain in her jaw.He said it appeared to be an infected salivary gland- NO treatment at all other than sending her to the hospital for test that cost her $800 out of pocket.Results showed infection-STILL no antibiotics-told her to eat sour candy and drink water to activate salivary glands.4 days later STILL swollen -calls Dr. Koslin -goes to see him STILL NO ANTIBIOTICS and now say she wants to refer to a SPECIALIST who isn't available for a week. HE IS A QUACK

Had to have a tooth removed as it was under a bridge and had cracked. Put me to sleep, pulled it out in 40 seconds and left a big rough metal edge from the bridge. Said 'your dentist can smoothe that '. I was too sleepy to argue. But after two cuts on my tongue form that rough edge I had to make an unexpected visit to my dentist which cost me a $50 co pay and time off work. Dr Koslin has lost his expertise and his bedside manners. WONT EVER USE HIM AGAIN

Did not ask about my symptoms or offer any recommendation when I told him i was uncomfortable with the method of treatment he initially suggested. He spent 10 minutes with me after I drove 4 hours for his consult. Didn't do any tests or scans just felt my jaw for all of 10 seconds before coming to whatever conclusion he came to. Rude and abrasive.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
