He was GREAT
Dr. Sapovadias tech, Vanessa, was really sweet and wonderful. She explained things to me and put me at ease and gave me confidence in Dr. Sapovadias skill. She was friendly and made sure to address any questions I had. After the procedure, which was challenging, she thanked me for my patience and for hanging in there, saying she recognized that it was a hard experience. My experience with Dr. Sapovadia was different. He was nice at my initial consultation but during the subsequent surgical appointment he barely spoke to me, did not talk me through the procedure, chided me for putting my hand up when he was leaning on my lip and causing pain, occasionally ignored my moans of pain, and just stood up and left the room after the extraction without giving me post-op instructions or asking if I had any questions. I found his bedside manner generally callous, but this was different from his comportment at my initial visit so perhaps he was just having a bad day.
I was told by the dentist to see an oral surgeon for the concern of a cyst being behind my wisdom tooth. Coming in to my appt I was asked if I had any pain in that area and it was there I explained I did not and would prefer to keep them in due to my high anxiety of procedures like that. She said she would express those concerns to the surgeon. The surgeon came in and spent less then 5 minutes in my mouth and then just told me I should do the surgery anyway and never even mentioned a cyst or the original concern of me going there at all. It honestly felt like a major waste of money and time overall. Did not feel my concerns were taken serious at all and that they just wanted the money.
Dentist never talked to guardian - was told to read instructions in the bag - dentist told my 17 yr. old that she was acting like a toddler.
Really liked him. Thanks.
Dentist never even has spoke to me - Not one word. (Surgery.
The doctor did not say anything to my daughter and just began inserting the IV. I did not see him before or after the procedure.
The dentist did not explain the procedure.
This experience was one of the worst my daughter has had. The staff was completely aloof, and the doctor was extremely cold to my daughter during the procedure. Shes never had an issue with blood draws, etc, and has never experienced any bruising. Her veins are like mine, and are easy to get. It took the doctor 3 times to get the needle in and her arm was completely bruised from top to bottom. He was also very aggressive. I did not receive any printed care instructions to take home, and was expected to basically remember everything the nurse was telling me while trying to hold my daughter up in the chair from the sedation. Never again.
