I am not a nervous dental patient, but as a pathology consult, I was apprehensive. Explanations were clear, the staff interacted well together and with me. Billing was expained clearly.

At this appointment the doctor was very good about explaining the process and showing me what my teeth and jaw look like so that I now better understand what is going to happen.

I just want to say Dr. Aslam was exceptional. He took me on emergency referral. I was having a lot of pain from cracked tooth. Dr. Aslam performed the tooth extraction quickly and with minimal discomfort. He was very compassionate and put me at ease. He even called that evening to see how I was doing. I had had a bad experience with another dental practice. I am so glad I ended up at your practice! Thanks to all the staff!

Maybe because their office seemed really busy, but the doctor seem not interested in doing the consultantion for a referral. I got the vibe that he was annoyed with me or the situation.

Dr. Aslam-Pervez is quite skilled at discussing options in terms that a layperson can understand. Some doctors rush through appointments, but I feel as if he took all of the time I needed to explain options, results, and future plans.

I was surprised that I met with the assistants and was prepped for surgical removal of wisdom teeth before I even met the doctor. When I scheduled, I thought I would consult the doctor and then do the surgery. However, the doctor showed up as I was being prepped and talked to me prior to doing the surgery and answered all of my questions.

Dr. Aslam was exceptionally kind. I was surprised by a caring follow-up call the evening of my procedure which was both encouraging and informative. My experience was overwhelmingly positive in the face of a surgery for which I had been very anxious.

Dr. Aslam-Pervez and the staff were very reassuring, and it was a very surprisingly quick procedure. Even though it was quick, they all made me feel comfortable by talking with me and it didn't feel like an assembly line operation. Very impressed and it was everything I ever wanted and more

Dr. Aslam really took time to go through everything with me. He answered all my questions in a thorough and detailed manner, which I really appreciated. He was patient and friendly, and he seemed to really care that I understood the procedure and what I should expect.

the doctor didn't warn me before lowering the chair down and they were standing behind me when it lowered. the sled to examin my mouth but didn't outline what they were going to do before they did it, all of a sudden it feels like he's sticking his fingers down my throat and I'm gagging. he explains he's going to examine the top of my mouth after he's already started.
