Doctor Farbstein was the epitome of a caring, professional dentist.
From the flawless doctor to extremely helpful and caring personnel at the front desk - everything was perfect.
Have been seeing Dr. Lerner for many many years. My children started seeing him when they were 6 and 8 and loved going to see him. He has the best bedside manner. Extremely compassionate and caring and always takes call on his cell when he is off and will help you out immediately. I travel from downtown to Richmond Hill to see him and would never trade him for anybody else. Extremely hard to find such caring health professionals these days. Also his assistants and receiptionists who have all been there for many years are also excellent.
I've been going to Larry since I was a kid, and he's very good! Would never dream of changing dentists. Gentle with needles, and very knowledgable; you know when Larry's working on you, you don't have to fear!
Just recently went to get a cleaning done with Julie. It's my second time with her and she was wonderful. You can tell she really cares about getting your teeth perfect. She even helped me correct some bad flossing and brushing habits.
